In the Mailbag:

  • What movie was the worst choice for Best Picture? For me I’m torn between The Green Book (what were they thinking), The Artist (really, it’s a gimmick) and Slumdog Millionaire. I don’t hold much love for Gladiator either. What are your choices? - Belinda, Chicago

 

  • Hello Slash film team! For horror lovers, specifically Chris, but I'd love to hear from all of you: What was the first horror film that truly terrified you and made you fall in love with the genre? Similar question for HT and all: What was the first animated film you loved that helped cement your love for the genre? Love the show, big fan of everyone, Chris, HT, Ben, Brad, Chris, and you Jacob. Also I like the Gargantuan book of insults, offense, and offrentry. - Pablo from Fort Wayne, Indiana
