Two Cents 036: Leap Day Crusade

The episode in which Steve tries to guess the Oscar winners, I give my critique of the ceremony/coverage, stunt performers are lobbying for their own category, #JusticeForFlint did well despite its counter programming, the FBI nabbed one of the screener pirates, we talk about the R-rated comic book movies, China might buy a stake in Paramount, and Netflix will start streaming in HDR. Plus I continue my fascination with VR, especially in terms of new developments (Facebook’s dynamic streaming/Google leveraging Project Tango), Ready Player One found its lead, Fox moves things around, we talk Sam Raimi because he is making World War III, Pacific Rim 2, we talk about Disney movies, Amazon is trying new things, and Netflix has found new talent.
