Boston is its own little culture in film. You can distinctly figure out if a character is from Boston within the first moment they open their mouth and the foul language and their thick accent starts pouring out. Let’s not be stereotypical here, there is more to Bostonians than just a few F-bombs and the mispronunciation of the letter ‘R’. Who are we kidding? In most Boston related movies the citizens are portrayed as their stereotypes to their full extent. The people at ScreenJunkies have created a hilarious representational video of this culture and you can view all the fahkin’ goodness after the break! Don’t forget to pahk the cah!
Who knew that a little thing like Reeses Pieces could spark a cultural complexity and annoyance such as product placement. Being a geek of both arts, advertising and film, I wonder to myself, how have I never heard of these awards? Well your guess is as good as mine. But moving forward… the Brandchannel has furiously tabulated product placement for over the past decade. Each year they honor the good, the bad, and the ugly of product placement in films. To see who the big winners are, find out after the break!

The 83rd Academy Awards will be airing tonight on ABC at 730 CST and I will be bringing you the winners as they are presented live (you’ll have to refresh the page throughout the night if you stay with me). I’ll also be putting in my two cents and just trying to enjoy my night as this will be a pretty exciting awards show. Not only do we get the first co-ed co-hosts, Anne Hathaway and James Franco, but the youngest ever too. I am also excited to see what Banksy will have in store if he will crash the award show or not.
To see who has won thus far, keep reading after the jump!
With only a matter of hours before the biggest awards ceremony in the film industry takes place, I have just a few predictions to get out of the way to set in stone bragging rights if I am to guess these awards correctly. If I get them wrong, then you can just tell me to shove it. The 83rd Annual Academy Awards can be seen on ABC tonight at 5/4 CST and the ceremony starts 830/730 CST. Without further ado take a gander after the jump to see who I believe will take the Oscar tonight!
Lacking the opportunity to gain screeners or press screenings makes it slightly more difficult to fit in the time or budget to see every movie that comes out within a year. Sometimes you just have to buck up and watch a lot of damn movies; that’s what the Internet is for. With less than one week until the 83rd Annual Academy Awards, I felt that it is my duty to share with you my thoughts on last years motion pictures.
The year was 2010 and a whole lot of nothing was going on in the cinema world; there were the really good and then there were the really bad. Hardly any movies in 2010 were sub-par, but to create a list of the best was really hard to determine. So what films did I love and what films did I hate? Find out after the break to see who made my best and worst movie lists of 2010!
The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards will premier live tonight on NBC from 8:00-11:00 p.m. (EST) from the Beverly Hilton Hotel hosted again by Ricky Gervais.

Catch the live updates when the Globes go live later after the break!
