Episode 187 – 2016 Oscar Predictions

Alan Cerny (@NordlingCS on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss their 2016 Oscar Predictions. Season 6 starts off like it has the last 5 years, with Craig and Alan predicting their choices for the 2016 Academy Awards, lamenting non-nominees, why someone should have or shouldn’t have been nominated as well as who they think WILL win and who they think SHOULD win. It looks like a rather boring year at the Academy in which Craig rants against Rachel McAdams, both Alan and Craig take issue with Leonardo Dicaprio’s snot-bubbled grunting and their mutual love of Mad Max: Fury Road.

Also, past guest and friend of the show, Thom Singer is in the middle of his annual fundraiser (all February) for the Kate Singer Endowment for Cranio-Facial Research. It’s a good cause and the money goes to the Dell Children’s Medical Center out of Austin and Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego. Please consider donating by clicking here to donate.

Episode 128 – 2014 Summer Movie Preview – Part 1

Alan Cerny (@nordlingAICN on twitter) is here for a 2014 Summer Movie Preview with host Craig Price! It’s that time of year again. Swimming pools and movie stars. No, not a Beverly Hillbillies sequel (which we expect at any time) – it’s SUMMER! Which means it’s time for Craig and Alan to sit down and figure out what movies they are looking forward to seeing, which ones they are not expecting much from and which ones do they know little about. This time though, the two talk so much and have such a good time, the podcast has to be split into two episodes! Thankfully, they cover the movies chronologically so they have you covered from now until the end of June.

The two talk about (click for Alan’s review):

Maleficent
A Million Ways to Die in the West
Edge of Tomorrow
22 Jump Street
How to Train Your Dragon 2
Jersey Boys
Transformers 4: Age of Extinction
Snow Piercer

As well as discuss how good a director Clint Eastwood is, how bad a director Michael Bay is, how Seth MacFarlane can’t compete with Mel Brooks (who can?) and how young can Tom Cruise keep looking??

As always, you can catch reviews Alan writes under the pseudonym Nordling on http://www.aintitcoolnews.com – We’ll link his reviews to the movies as they come out!

Look for Part 2 on July 1st when we close out the rest of the summer’s movies
