CINAPSE Weekly Roundup – February 28th, 2015
Deluged by the plethora of awesome content the Cinapse family provides each week? Worried you missed something? Never fear, each Saturday our Weekly Roundup will show you a little glimpse of the week’s highlights, our most popular posts, new releases, column updates and anything that has provoked a response from internet trolls on up to insightful feedback and discussion.

Cinapse is TWO YEARS young this week! Check out this post for a info about NYC is Effed, a very special event that takes place TODAY — our thanks for stopping by and sharing our love for film here. Please join us, and bring a friend!

FEATURESThe Oscars were this week and while some films and stars missed out (WHERE WAS THE LEGO MOVIE, ACADEMY??), we strived to right the wrongs with our second annual Cinapse Awards. See what the team praised and what we snubbed in this year’s ballot here.

We also have articles looking back at a few newer and one older release including a Netflix selection with Housebound, an editorial revisiting The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby and another looking back at Holocaust documentary Shoah.

COLUMNS

The Archivist is back taking a look at Warner Archive offerings centered around Failed Comic Book Adaptations.

The Two-Cents team put on their best “Blue Steel” faces this week as they revisit Zoolander, and the Pick of the Week falls to Sean who brings you his thoughts on Fish Tank.

TV RECAPNew Girls means a new recap. Is it just me or is Hannah even more unlikeable than usual this season?

HOME VIDEO RELEASESPlenty to dig through this week including new Scott Adkins vehicle Green Street Hooligans: Underground. Wonder how many desks get smashed in that one. Also on Blu, the magnificent Whiplash, Blood Red, New Year’s Evil, Beyond the Lights and Dangerously Close.

We also have a Podcast review of Wild Orchid. Finally, grab the tissues because Watership Down has been given the Criterion treatment on Blu-ray. Briiiiight eyes…buuuurning like fire!

You’re bought tickets to our 2 year movie event tonight, right?

Originally harkening from the British Isles, Jon was exiled to Texas back in 2007 to help conceal his identity as a love child of the Queen. Jon has both embraced and been embraced by the wonderful city of Austin, a place which has only further enhanced his interest in film. A regular at SXSW and Fantastic Fest, Jon is also a member of the Austin Film Critics Association and Online Film Critics Society. By day he is a researcher at UT Austin but he also has an involvement with (and deep appreciation for) the local brewing industry. In short, his passions are cinema, science, craft beer and writing about himself in the third person. Twitter: @Texas_Jon
