  1. The 7th Annual Munchie Awards; or 2014 in Review

    It's Oscar time and that means it's once again time for me to steal their thunder and present the 7th Annual Munchie Awards, celebrating what I thought were the cinematic highlights of the year, since the Academy can just never seem to get it quite right (American Sniper? Come on).
