With Zach Braff utilizing Kickstarter to fund his next directorial project, the staff and I discuss if it is right for someone with access to celebrities to use a crowd-funding source like Kickstarter.

The Tribeca Film Festival as well as the Montclair Film Festival have ended.  We talk about some of our favorite films that played and if any of them have any Oscar chances.

Summer is upon us and a lot of blockbusters and indies are gearing up for their debuts.  The staff each pick two choices for their most anticipated films.  Also, Mark Johnson goes over the summer schedule.

We play “The Producer Game” and adapting or remaking a science fiction/horror film.  Which film would you remake if you could?

Finally, the ballots are in!  I announce the winners of the Awards Circuit Community Awards for 1999.  Did American Beauty keep its crown or did David Fincher’s Fight Club, the most nominated film, perform a clean sweep?  Listen!
