    This will be very interesting indeed. Usually the Academy Idol favors the art house fanboy films, but there are so many of them out there that it will be hard pin pointing a favorite this early on.

    Wonderful video! Found myself wanting to see movies I know I didn’t even like in the theater. :-) Maybe Myles Hughes should have made the originals.
