In this installment of The Oscar Buzz, we finally look at The Bling Ring and how it may be the most honest movie of 2013 so far.

I like sitcoms. I’ll admit it. They’re usually quite funny and often become wonderful returning shows year after year(ignoring those that go on too long). From Seinfeld to the Honeymooners, sitcoms have been a staple on TV in new content and reruns. Yet sometimes, they don’t quite deliver. Take the case of Up All Night.

BREAKING NEWS: Matt Damon, Liam Neeson and Jason Statham are set to star in a re-make of the action and adventure classic The Great Escape. No, that is not true at all. I apologize if I got your hopes up because a re-make with those three would be epic. Imagine Damon as “The Cooler King,” Neeson as “The Scrounger” and Statham as “The Tunnel King.” That thought certainly brings a smile to my face. That is the power of cinema though, more so than literature or video games. Just the slightest notion of our favorite stars comprising characters or roles elicits instant excitement because of the performance they can bring. For me, they contain the best ability to create happiness when my mood is bleak.
We open the show with a review of Drive, starring Ryan Gosling. Then Matt and Andrew talk about the newest video game releases(can anyone figure out why Andrew is on British time?). Thom loaned Andrew “Potty Mouth” by Doug Benson and they talk about that. Also, Thursday is always Game Day! The CBYHS theme for the week is “Based on Literature.” The trailers for Trailer Trash(or Treasure!) are Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Shut Up Little Man: An Audio Misadventure, and Berlin 36. Also we guess the ending for Killer Elite. Come back on Tuesday to download the newest episode and check out our blogs on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at nevpodcast.com.

Nerd’s Eye View opens this episode with a review of Colombiana. Then Andrew and Matt go over the new video game releases, focusing on Gunstringer and God of War: Origins. Today’s CBYHS theme is “Man” or “Woman” in the title, watch out for how Thom bends that rule. Today’s trailers are The Artist(11/23), Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence(N/A) and Blackthorne(10/7). Stay tuned until the end to hear how everyone thinks Drive will end. Please check out our blog posts on Tumblr through nevpodcast.com and send us your thoughts at firstname.lastname@example.org

Like many others out there, I enjoy purchasing and owning DVDs. Yes, I actually enjoy holding in my hand my copy of Barton Fink and thinking to myself, “This is mine, I own it.” The fact is I own many DVDs, probably close to 200 in total. I own so many, that I rarely have time to watch them all. Even if I wasn’t trying to watch 500 movies I haven’t seen this year, I doubt I’d have time to watch half of my personal collection in the year.
Episode 18 is the Thursday episode, so it’s game day! But first, we review Fright Night. Then Andrew talks about the differences between The Crow movie and comics and Thom reviews a musical version of High Fidelity. Onto the games! The “Can’t Believe You Haven’t Seen” theme for the week was movies whose main characters is named John. The three trailers for “Trailer Trash” are Texas Killing Fields, Hysteria, and In Time. For “Guess the Ending” we take a stab at Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark. Please tell your friends, come back next week, and drop us a line at email@example.com

In one week’s time (September 1), one of the most controversial movies of the year is finally seeing it’s release On Demand. What exactly is this controversial movie? Does it reveal dark secrets about our society? Does it feature anything groundbreaking? Metaphorically, yes.
