Podcast Episode 79



Sorry about the delay, we’re back with a new episode of the Ben Heck Dot Com Podcast!

In this episode we discuss:

  • Film revisionism, and how the opinions of films are forced to change over time. It wasn’t until the mid-2000’s that I learned Return of th Jedi sucked – thanks Internet!
  • Big hit movies that time forgot. Ghost! Robin Hood Prince of Theives! These movies made major bank but are now forgotten – why?
  • How To Win An Oscar – a study on the predictability of what films / actors win and why. Also, the phenomenon of “delayed Oscars” where they’ll give you one for a lesser film if they feel you should have won in the past.

We then use this method to predict what movies and actors will win big this weekend (sorry Amy Adams)

Addendum: In our “How to Win an Acting Award” segment, we forgot to mention the “Take off your shirt” award. (Get naked, get Oscar) This is another reason Halle Berry (Monster’s Ball) may have won against Nicole Kidman (Moulin Rouge) in 2002.
