“The Real Geezers”

"The Real Geezers"

Two octogenarians – Marcia & Lorenzo – take on the Oscar nominees in two hilarious, adorable and occasionally insightful clips. Their picks are spotty (they are apparently Oscar voters), though I wonder if their double pick of Tilda Swinton is on to something… But their bickering and rants are more than worth your time.. Lorenzo refuses to vote for the screenplay category because you “can’t judge a screenplay from looking at a movie.” Best is when Lorenzo rants about Into The Wild, calling it a “remake of Easy Rider for this generation”: “Shot by a redneck or eaten by a bear, what’s the difference?” And kudos to Marcia for her rant about how she still hasn’t gotten over when Raging Bull lost to the “perfectly nice” Ordinary People.

Check out all their clips, which include reviews of Superbad and There Will Be Blood, and you’ll probably agree with me: Roeper & Friends ain’t got nothing on these two.
