Busan Cinematheque Film Archive Gives Access to Thousands of Rare DVD Titles

I made a new discovery at the Busan Cinematheque today - they have an archive of thousands of DVDs that you can watch there on small screens with headphones for free. It definitely doesn’t make for the best viewing experience (only hardcore cinephiles will probably want to bother), but it’s the only way to get access to such a vast collection of rare titles in Busan. I glanced at the selection for a few minutes, and it’s pretty impressive - lots of older, artsier stuff made by well-regarded filmmakers.

2009 Academy Awards Predictions

By no means does this list represent what I think should win, but what I think will win. That being said, some of these picks totally deserve to take home the golden statue.

Best Picture: Slumdog Millionaire

I predict a big night for “Slumdog Millionaire” because it’s the obvious choice and the academy almost always goes for the obvious choice. I’ve seen three of the five films in competition this year and I liked “Slumdog” the most, but that isn’t saying much. It’s more like I hated it the least. I’ll save the juicy details for the review I plan on writing if and when it comes out in South Korea.

Best Actor: Mickey Rourke for “The Wrestler”
