The King’s Speech / Open Forum

The King's Speech

The Academy Award nominations are upon us, and leading the way with 12 is Tom Hooper’s historical melodrama The King’s Speech, which also happens to be the only one of the 10 Best Picture nominees we’ve yet to discuss on the show, so this seemed like as good an opening as we were going to get. We’ll review Hooper’s widely-lauded flick, along with some discussion of the nods and the Academy itself, and a breakdown on the Sundance Film Festival.

Here’s the Christopher Hitchens piece referenced in the King’s Speech review:

Please note that in this episode, we got a little carried away with exploiting the Sound on Sight Hoveryacht’s newfound freedoms. We apologize for any incurred sloppiness. Well, we kinda apologize.
