Film snobs unite! There are 87 Academy Award winners for Best Picture so far, and Kent, Joel and Jacob have watched each and every one of them so you don’t have to. In this episode, we’re bringing our top five Best Picture picks and our bottom five Best Picture picks to the table. Sometimes we agree, sometimes we argue and sometimes Jacob explains WAY too much of the plot. Join us as we guide you through the minefield of Oscar-winning films and let you know which ones to watch and which ones to avoid — because, you know, the Academy doesn’t always get it right.
In this episode, we talk about Simon Pegg and his controversial comments about the state of geekdom. It seems that the lord of the geeks has finally grown up. We debate whether Pegg has truly left the fold or if he is tired of the watered-down commercialization.
Throughout the show: Kent plays Nostradamus and predicts the fatigue and end of superhero flicks. Joel feels that the truly memorable dramas are now on TV, instead of the big screen. Jacob apparently hates John Travolta. Find out why this is all important in the latest episode of Baconsale!
