Mamo #341: That’s A Spicy Meatball

Mamo tries to get back on belated track as the Oscar ceremony roars toward us… we give you our Oscar picks, in case you still haven’t entered your office Oscar pool; talk Guardians of the Galaxy and general awesomeness; and hold a brief memorial for the brave, beautiful Mamo 340. And then Price nearly dies. It’s great! It’s Mamo.

The meatball shenanigans in the show are pretty funny!

I think Amy Adams will win Best Actress, I don’t think Lupita Nyong’o is a lock, and Julia Roberts might be a dark horse on this one. She’s really good in August: Osage County.

You shoulda seen them in real life. I thought his head was going to fire off the top of his neck like a cannon ball.

I agree with Matt B. on The Hunt (Here is my TIFF review: http://www.rowthree.com/2012/09/09/tiff-2012-the-hunt-review/ )

It’s overrated, confused about itself, and misogynistic to boot.

The GoTG trailer reminded me in look tone and a bit of setting of Lockout and I wasn’t in camp Lockout so I am not sold as of yet.

I’m curious on getting the Matt’s opinion on this latest Veronica Mars news:
http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702303636404579397322240026950

Now it’s not the first movie to release a movie online at the same time it’s in the theatre. However, I find it is interesting that theatre companies have rules against this and that a movie has to have at least a 90-day window before release on home video for AMC, Regal and Cinemark to show them. Warner Brothers is getting around this rule by renting out the theatres themselves to show Veronica Mars The Movie.

This is a small movie, that is going to have hardly any to no advertising budget, so it’s not exactly going to make a huge change in the system. Still as a line in the article says “…Veronica Mars represents an experiment, not a harbinger of broader changes to its business.” So it will be curious where this experiment will lead.

Note that backers of the KickStarter project will all get their digital copies of the movie, the same day that the movie opens. However, from what I’ve seen online the majority of the backers still want to go see the movie in the theatre.

Regarding late-night coffee shops – A little east of Hey Meatball is a place called Tango Palace. Usually open until 11pm, it’s where a friend and I go to catch up and study. Unsure about the acoustics for recording.

Ah yes, I’ve seen the place. I’m only a couple of blocks from there. Will give it a try; we don’t care much about acoustics. 😉
