The Wolf Of Wall Street
Overcoming the stigma of being too hardcore and too sympathetic to financial world assholes, "The Wolf Of Wall Street" still wound up with five Oscar nominations in major categories (Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Director and Best Picture). Of course, it went home empty handed, but now that we're a few months away from the hype, here's a fun way to revisit the flick.

The Worf Of Starfleet
We've seen handful of parodies emerge over the past few months for the Best Picture nominees, mostly focused on "Gravity" and "Her," but one of the more curious sorta-memes being generated in the last little while revolved around "The Wolf Of Wall Street." You may have noticed "The Worf Of Wall Street" posters floating around the with Michael Dorn as Worf from "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and "Deep Space Nine" replacing Leonardo DiCaprio's Jordan Belfort. It's amazing what one change of a noun can accomplish. Read More »

2014 Oscar Winners
...And that's it on another year. As always, the Oscars were both exciting, (mostly) sleep inducing, surprising and left us with lots to talk about. But it's late, we're tired and filled with nacho cheese, so we're going to be a bit brief for now.

The Wolf Of Wall Street
Paramount’s push for Oscar gold with “The Wolf of Wall Street” has led its central team — Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Jonah Hill — into the press melee to talk up the film’s many aspects.

Edgy Best Picture oscar nominees
“Ugh, the Academy, so conservative” goes the cliché, as bloggers and pundits the movie world over take a moment to roll their eyes and sigh before diving back in to beaver away on one of a million pieces about this year’s nominations, the pros and cons, the good picks, the bad picks, the odds, the ends (hey, we’ve done a few ourselves with more on the way!) But while that knee-jerk stance is an easy one to adopt (and also comfortable—setting the speaker above the choices in question by virtue of the fact that they’re not challenging enough, not cinephile-y enough, too MOR, too bland), it doesn’t take account of those times when we’ve been surprised by the august body.
