The Schmoes Know Show

Critically Acclaimed: Cimarron and Unforgiven

When CIMARRON won the Academy Award for Best Picture, it probably wasn't called one of the most boring Best Picture winners in history. But it is now, and we watched it anyway, because our listeners demanded it! Why is this huge western epic such a misfire? And why is it the perfect double feature with Clint Eastwood's deconstructionist deconstructionist western, UNFORGIVEN? You'll find out in this week's CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED! You'll also get our farewell to Albert Linney, our thoughts on this week's MOVIE TRIVIA SCHMOEDOWN, and reviews of the new releases THE LEGO MOVIE 2, COLD PURSUIT, HIGH FLYING BIRD, THE PRODIGY, THE AMITYVILLE MURDERS, THE WILD PEAR TREE and all fifteen nominees for BEST DOCUMENTARY SHORT, BEST ANIMATED SHORT and BEST LIVE-ACTION SHORT at this year's Oscars!
