If it's crap ... We'll tell you
EDIT: Figures, the day I put this up, they narrow the Best Makeup and Hairstyling race. Predictions updated to reflect the change.
EDIT 2: Another shortlist means another alteration. Best Foreign Language predictions have been updated to reflect the change.

Well it has been awhile since I've written a new $5 Bin segment so as a little refresher...
For those of you unfamiliar with Walmart, there is a very special section located in the electronic section know as The $5 Bin. In said bin, is a stack of DVD’s, each costing, you guessed it, 5 dollars. Usually it’s…Continue

Hey there, Sploich here with my final Oscar predictions for the 84th Academy Awards. I got a 56% accuracy rating on my nomination predictions so I'm hoping to get even better with my winner predictions. The thing is, this year is a bit tricky. My head and my heart are telling me several different things based on the other award ceremonies this year (not including the Golden Globes because, as I've stated before, they mean nothing) as well as the way the Academy typically votes. I'm just…Continue

Hey there, Sploich here with my (SERIOUSLY FINAL) predictions for the 84th Academy Award nominees. I decided to start going to the 15th with my predictions because posting them on the 1st every month was causing some problems. So here is my very VERY last updated nominee prediction list:
Best Supporting Actress
Bérénice Bejo for The Artist
Jessica Chastain for The Help
Janet McTeer for Albert Nobbs
Octavia Spencer for The Help
So, the Academy has released an updated shortlist for Visual Effects, meaning I have to change my nominees. I have done so and the new finalized predictions can be seen at http://www.sploich.com/oscars/predictions.php. For my blogged version of the list, please go to…Continue

Hey there, Sploich here, and Happy New Year! Over at my site, http://www.sploich.com/, I've been predicting the Oscars since about mid-2011 and today marks my last update before the actual nominees are announced. This is a hard year to predict as the nominees, no matter what they are, are going to be rather underwhelming. Regardless, here is what I have come up with and am stuck with from here on out (until February when I predict the…Continue
Well, here it is. The phenomenon that has captured and revitalized the imagination of children, teenagers, young adults, and even some older adults around the world is finally over and for many like myself, it is the end of our childhoods in a way and the end of a truly magical decade (pardon the pun). What else should I even need to say about this film that hasn't already been said. Everyone loves this movie and for goood reason. I've seen it twice back-to-back within one day and I still…Continue

“I Thought You Would Be Funnier” is up for an Eisner Award in the Best Humor Publication category.
Shannon Wheeler (Too Much Coffee Man) was left off the online ballot at first!! Can you believe that?

As promised here's the recording from the Academy Awards show this past Sunday. I was so bored with the show I can't tell if this podcast was any good good or not. I actually got drunk halfway through the broadcast. If you do decide to listen, though, it's intended to be played while viewing the show. So if you didn't record the ceremony or don't watch it online many of the things we say won't make a lot of sense.…Continue
Best Documentary Feature
What Should Win: Exit Through the Gift Shop
What Will Win: Inside Job
I haven't seen either of these movies, but I intend to watch Exit Through the Gift Shop very soon, so this prediction is based mainly on the buzz surrounding the nominees. The audience favorite is Exit Through the Gift Shop, but something tells me that the Academy's gonna vote for the more politically controversial…Continue
Well, as Oscar season comes ever closer to doing the big reveal when it comes to nominations, the select five nominees for this year's Orange Rising Star Award for the BAFTAs have been announced and for the most part, I'm very impressed and it's a select group of actors that's hard for me to pick over the other when it comes to who's the best or who has the most promise. Now, when it comes to this award, it's only been given out five previous times since the very thing that inspired it was…Continue
Wow! Just wow! I simply can not believe it when I try to process the thought in my brain that Pete Postlethwaite, one of the greatest, most memorable, most recognizable, and most revered and respected actors who has ever worked in Hollywood has just left us for what could be a greater beyond. Of course, when I write a blog…Continue
This idea for a blog has been in my mind for a long while so I thought that I might as well write it now. There has always been a question in my mind and that is what makes great villains? Frankly, there are so many aspects that make the list of great film villains who they are so I thought that we should look at some villains who have been listed over the years as being some of the greats and see exactly what makes a great villain so great, evil, despicable, and yet entertaining and…Continue
Oh, man. I can't even really describe what this film is about without getting into details. So, to deviate from my routine would be to write a spoiler-filled review and that would be a sacrilege because it is best to go into this movie with as little to know as possible. Do not read plot synopses, do not look up spoilers, do not look up ANYTHING before you go see this movie. Now, I'm…Continue

It's that time again, Oscartime! 2009 was a great year for films and the end to a great decade of movies. This was a year where there was something for everyone. The Hurt Locker appealed to the soldiers, The Hangover appealed to the frat boys, Where the Wild Things Are was the hipster movie of 2009, New Moon was loved by girls, Inglourious Basterds was a cinema lovers fantasy, and Avatar appealed to everyone else. With great movies throughout, and 10 best picture nominees, this will be an…Continue
