Comment on: Iron Sky director revives Hitler in 3D
Hitler was just a misunderstood artist. Rejection is the most brutal of human conditions and young Adolf underwent the metamorphosis into the monster of our historical lore by his rejection from art school.

The Academy will certainly have to lower their nose to the general public’s level if they want to get their audience back. The awards have just really gone downhill the past few years and this year’s nominations in particular were completely out of touch with what people like.
Comment on: Magnolia strikes US deal for Marley doc
Bob Marley has influenced the entire world with his music, which will live on to be rediscovered by more and more generations to come. His work has affected my life and my art so much.
The Academy certainly went with much higher brow nominees this year which I think will lose them a large portion of their young audience. After doing better at being in touch with the public the past two years, these stiff nominees just fall flat.
