Co-host Jeffery Heatherly and I discuss Tron, Steven Lisberger's 1982 epic of light bikes and deadly discs. In our wide-ranging conversation we talk about the lack of real logic in the plot, the techniques that went into creating this special effects milestone, consider the Tron franchise as a whole and beatbox our way into film music history.

In this collaborative episode, Original Unoriginal Podcast host Jeffery Heatherly and I take a break from reviewing movies to reflect on the 82nd Academy Awards, held March 7, 2010. We discuss virtually every Oscar-related topic under the sun: the hosts, who won (and who shouldn't have), technical difficulties and memorable moments. We also look, fairly in-depth, at several nominated films. Hooray for Hollywood!

Co-host Jeffery Heatherly and I discuss Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island (2010). Our topics include performances, music, marketing, some terrible ADR and the film's connection to a cancelled Batman spinoff. We also manage to go nearly 35 minutes without spoiling the ending!
