Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, fellow New Zealanders who worked together on 2007’s “Eagle vs. Shark”, join forces again to co-write and co-direct the very hilarious vampire mockumentary “What We Do in the Shadows.”
There is a restraint from Cage that Green is powerfully able to harness. Films like “Joe” justify my faith in Cage’s talents.
I had the pleasure to sit down with first director Jeremy Ambers and we discussed his impressive doucmentary "Impossible Light", his time at the 2014 SXSW festival, and among other things, the influence of Robert Rodriquez.
So most years, me getting 20 categories correct out of 24 would probably be enough to be donned champion of the local Oscar pool. This was no ordinary year. Out of the many people who took a swing at this years Oscars contest, an impressive six people hit 22 out of the 24 categories. This still wasn't enough as one person only missed one category to win it all!!!

This Sunday is my favorite holiday of the year- THE OSCARS!!! 2013 was a good year for the movies. Last year I gave four films the perfect "5 Mitch Head" rating when I only gave out three total from 2010 to 2012. There are so many competitive categories this year with The Best Picture race being one of the tightest in recent memory. So here's a chance to showcase my movie snobbery and predict who will be holding those gold little statuettes at the end of the night. Here goes....
