Haven't Had Time To Watch All The Oscar Contenders? We've Got Your Cliffs Notes!

With NINE nominees in the Best Picture category alone, it's not easy to watch every film up for an award at this year's 85th Annual Academy Awards. Tomorrow night we'll be live-tweeting the event (follow @blogherpop to play along), and I personally will be taking a shot every time host Seth MacFarlane slips in to his Stewie Griffin voice (Oscars drinking game anyone?) so expect the tweeting to get saucier as the night goes on....more

Oscar Watch: What's Up With All The Violence?

I love movies and I’m always thrilled when I read about a film made for adults.  It’s a sad fact of life that the big-budget productions, issued in the summer, all feature superheroes with super powers or Will Smith saving the universe –films intended to appeal to teenaged boys, unless they’re made to appeal to pre-teen girls with dreamy, pale-skinned vampires and pumped up wolfmen. ...more
