Behold: Episode 1 of the Awards Daily/Living in Cinema Three-Way Moviegasm wherein I join the Dynamic Duo behind Awards Daily, the mellifluous Sasha Stone and the roguishly charming Ryan Adams, for a weekly chat about what’s doing in movies. With two experts in the mix, our talk will naturally gravitate toward the Oscars, especially during awards season, but the plan is to mix it up and to be open to talking about whatever is blowing our skirts up that week.
In our premiere episode, I try one last time to convince Sasha and Ryan to give Joaquin Phoenix’s I’m Still Here a shot (Spoiler: I fail); we talk about Ben Affleck’s The Town and whether or not it has the stuff for Oscar love; Sasha gives a hint of what we can expect from the upcoming The King’s Speech and finally we all give our thoughts about my most anticipated film of the year, Joel and Ethan Coen’s True Grit, before a final giggling meltdown and outtakes of us screwing up.
If you’ve got questions you’d like to ask either Sasha, Ryan or me, or if there are any topics you’d specifically like to see addressed, by all means drop me a line at craig [at] livingincinema.com. We’ll do our best to include some of your emails in future episodes.
And of course feel free to give me your thoughts about Episode 1 in the comments section – good, bad or ugly, I can take it. This whole thing is a work in progress for me and with your input I can hopefully improve from week to week. Already it’s clear we have a couple of audio difficulties – Sasha sounds like she’s broadcasting from a trunk in a Buick parked up on Mulholland Drive and I sound a little bit like I’m sitting on the toilet. We’ll definitely have those things worked out for episode 2.
A special thank you goes out to Ms. Stone for the hours of hard work she put in to making us sound as fancy as possible.
