The Oscars are over. Now it’s time for The Cinematic Tangent to talk the top films of 2014.
Brad and Chad talk the 2014 Oscar Shorts and give their (very important) predictions for the 87th Annual Academy Awards.
A smattering of biopics leftover from 2014 are here, just in time to be Oscar bait! Chad and Brad talk American Sniper, The Imitation Game, The Theory of Everything, and Selma. Do biopics examine myth or man? What constitutes a good acting performance? Do any of these features deserve an Oscar? And why do social elitists make the worst moviegoers? That and more, including a reference to Garth Ennis’ Punisher series, on the latest Cinematic Tangent.
Is American Sniper the best or worst movie of 2014? Is it patriotic propaganda? How does the film portray Chris Kyle? These questions answered as Brad and Chad talk the American Sniper controversy and the legacy of director Clint Eastwood.
The guys delve deep into the first part of the third Hunger Games. Where did the strong female lead go? Plus, there’s some talk about Golden Globe nominations for 2014 and the insane trend of teaser trailers being teased with teaser trailers. Also, have you seen the cool new Star Wars footage?
