The Cinematic Tangent wraps up their review of 2014 cinema by handing out awards for a variety of overlooked categories. What movie ‘Doesn’t Know it’s a Movie’? Which film ‘Did the Most Damage to My Inner Child’? What’s the ‘Biggest Waste of Film’ for 2014? Listen and find out!
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.
