Screen Bites: Ep. 107 – The Imitation Game + The Theory of Everything

By  | 

On this episode of Screen Bites, Jeremy, Jared, and Justin talk about the current seasons of Mythbusters, Justified, and 12 Monkeys before reviewing two biopics competing in this year’s Oscar race, The Imitation Game and The Theory of Everything. Though both films have received praise for the performances they feature – Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley in The Imitation Game and Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones in The Theory of Everything – they have also faced criticisms that they are bland, calculated Oscar bait, claims that we’ll try and put aside as we look at the two films as films, not Best Picture nominees or threats to the successes of Boyhood and BirdmanFeatured Music: “Decrypting” by Alexandre Desplat
