  • I believe this strategy can correctly predict the Best Picture winner for (almost) any year's Oscars, simply by tallying up points based on what categories the films were nominated for. The thinking comes down to focusing on these categories, for these reasons, with this point system:Best Picture NomineesOf course, start with the best picture nominee list.
  • Decided to put together a buying guide for anyone scrambling for Christmas gift ideas, but coming up short. This entry is broken down into gift ideas for five different age groups, for easy reference. Hope this helps. Has served me well in the past.Ages 1-4Stuffed Animals. Works like a charm, keeping in mind the gender of the child and his or her temperament.
  • The 88th annual Oscar nominations have finally been announced. So I think it's worth going over the full list of nominees, and discussing thoughts on who should win, who will (likely) win the top awards, and why (on both accounts).
  • To go out, or not to go out? That is the question.Well, that's the question for me on NYE anyways. Fight the crowds, traffic, weather and drunks to attempt to have a good time 'out on the town'? Or stay at home, keep it low key, maybe have a few friends over, watch the fireworks/ball drop on TV, have some champaign and then call it an early one...
  • Dancing with the Stars has their season 21 lineup of celebs and pro dancing partners all announced and ready to go. And for me, names that stand out are Gary Busey (for sure) and Paula Deen. Clearly they are swinging for the fences for ratings with these two, and it might just work this season.
  • The word 'genius' has been sorely overused for decades now, and often times it's used incorrectly. When something or someone's actions or body of work is really just pretty clever or somewhat unique, or they do something 'ingenious', you far too often hear the exaggerated GENIUS! label instead. It seriously annoys me.
  • 2015 has some really interesting films on the docket. Decided to focus on the 12 Sci-Fi/Fantasy films I'm most anticipating for the rest of the season. If you enjoy mind-bending or wildly creative and imaginative storytelling, that looks to be seriously pushing boundaries of where film has not yet gone before, be sure and give these films a consideration.
  • The Academy Award for Best Picture should go to the film that will stand the test of time. The award should go to a film that will resonate with audiences for decades to come; a film that we can all collectively look back on and say that was truly one of the best films that came out that year. A film worthy of being honored and remembered.Unfortunately, that is not always the case.
