If you still need to catch up on the conversation you can see Part 1 HERE.
As we left our heroes, they were trying to recall great summer movies. With a grand total of three, we can assume they failed this challenge. But life goes on.
MK: I like the Animated Feature category this year, but it's too short. No love for Tangled?
SS: Oh, well, not enough animated films came out this year. That determines the number of nominees.
MK: Yeah, by one movie. That's kind of bull. And I didn't even get to see The Illusionist despite my best efforts.
SS: Wait, The Illusionist came out? It feels like only three critics and the academy got to see it.
MK: It's here. I wanted to see it, but timing hasn't worked out.
SS: Maybe next time Disney will release more straight-to-video flicks in one-week only LA runs.
MK: (Laughs)…So Toy Story 3, How To Train Your Dragon, or The Illusionist? I want How To Train Your Dragon, but I think it'll be Toy Story 3, which I do love.
SS: Same. Hard to beat a Best Pic nominee, but How To Train Your Dragon had to work independently. Toy Story 3 relies on your previous knowledge of the characters.
MK: Yeah, and How To Train Your Dragon was awesome and original and special and loveable, but we'll see. Pixar always wins and deserves to win but I want Dreamworks to recognize what a good thing they did… for a change.
SS: They do pretty reliably great work. Megamind was fun, How To Train Your Dragon was touching... but I feel like they get a bad rap because they're more entertainment than…
SS: Art. But yeah, quality too (Laughs).
