This week on Drill Bits, we speak once again with frequent visitor David Chen from the /Filmcast as we discuss the Sci Fi network’s odd name change, Benjamin Button entering the Criterion Collection, and whether it matters or not that Blu-Ray won the HD format war.
Andrew Sorcini and Shazad Butt (former Digg user OptimusPrime01) trade picks for Oscar and discuss their most anticipated films of 2009. Later we discuss the films we’re most looking forward to seeing in 2009.
Frequent Drill Bits guest SlashFilmCast’s David Chen offers his .02¢ on the argument that Apple is not so much a technological innovator, but merely a marketing powerhouse. Mu takes the opposing argument. Also we discuss more juicy tidbits about Digg and the dynamics of elitism within social networks.
Andy Sorcini aka Mr. Baby Man from The Drill Down and Greg Davies aka cGt2099 from Social Blend join forces for The Round Up – a short mini podcast focusing on some entertainment news, with a preview of what’s coming up in Social Blend and The Drill Down.
In the 38th edition of The Round Up, Andy gives us a review of The Curious Case of FORREST GUMP (yes, you read that correctly). Later, Greg pays tribute to both Martin Luther King Jr and President-elect Barack Obama with ther song Rosa Sat by Amy Dixon-Kolar, a fitting selection for MLK Day and Inauguration Day.
Muhammad dukes it out with SlashFilmCast’s David Chen over the RIAA’s heavy-handed persecution prosecution of intellectual property thieves. Who will come out on top? Listen and decide.
