We are perilously close to the Academy Awards telecast where the film industry awaits a big pat on the back and, hopefully, a fatter wallet. The arguments over which is the best film or performance of the year have been raging for months. SO what does make a "BEST" movie? Or what even qualifies it to be a nominee? Freelance film critic, Michael Ordona talks about his criteria for a great film. He also discusses Oscar winners Past and Future, the ones that don't deserve the accolades and the ones he thinks were snubbed.
At about 20:00 mark we go deep into the Nerdverse with a discussion of Marvel and DC films, possibly spin-offs, and if "Cape and tights movies" could ever win a "Best Picture". Will Performance Capture artists ever have an Oscar category? We also get into the ranking systems, if past "Best" films pass the 5-year rule. Don't miss our follow-up podcast with Michael where we make all the Oscar picks and predictions!
