In a promo for 'Pitch Perfect' that seems to have been on an endless loop on my On Demand Chanel lately, Rebel Wilson gushes “We had such fun” making the movie. Just once, I would love to hear an actor say: “It was hell, we hated each other, I never want to work with those losers again.” Just once.  In the meantime, we have Zach Galifianakis’ new Oscar installment of his faux-web show, 'Between the Ferns'. Galifianakis, as the idiot host, talks to real-life nominees Jennifer Lawrence, Naomi Watts, Christoph Waltz, Anne Hathaway and Amy Adams about, as he puts it  “all of their Oscar buzzness around them.”  His question to Watts – “Do you have to shrink yourself to get into the camera?” -- is only slightly more ridiculous than some actual questions I’ve heard.

Django Unchained proves that Christoph Waltz’s amazing performance as a Nazi in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds was no fluke. He is every bit as vivid, and sly in a completely different way, in Tarantino’s latest film about slavery, violence and pre-Civil War America. To say that Waltz plays Dr. King Schultz, a bounty hunter who buys and frees the slave played by Jamie Foxx, then helps him find his wife, doesn’t begin to hint at the way the character develops, or how Waltz, perfectly in sync with Tarantino once again, subtly makes his character a moral compass as well as a fast-shooting Western sidekick, sometimes funny and sometimes eloquent.
