Over five seasons, Tim Heidecker and Gregg Turkington have been changing the face of film criticism with “On Cinema At The Cinema” on Adult Swim. The pair has brought audiences unbiased reviews, pure movie passion, and thus a much needed voice in the stale arena of movie journalism, but as season five wound down, problems began to surface between the duo. An apparently troubled Heidecker left the show in the hands of Turkington, and headed to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, leaving many to wonder what the future of the program might be.
Well, not only has season six returned, but so too has Heidecker, taking the reins once again after the debut episode hosted by Turkington alone. And late last week, I got on the phone with both of them to talk about the new season of the show, whether they can put the focus back on the movies and away from Heidecker’s personal life, and what can be expected in the second season of “Decker,” which is currently in pre-production. But most shocking of all was Turkington’s surprise revelation of two more Best Picture Oscar nominees that the Academy will announce on Friday —better get ready to change those Oscar predictions!
Check out the full conversation below, which at times gets quite heated. “On Cinema At Cinema” is now on Adult Swim and this Sunday, tune into the pair’s 3rd Annual Oscar Special on February 22nd, which will feature some big name surprise guests.
