Update: The chat is done; rewind below. Have a lovely weekend!
We’ve been experimenting, here at P&P, with doing live chats at noon on Fridays during the movie awards season. It’s been fun, but a little quiet! Drop by here Friday at noon, and share your thoughts about the Oscar nominations (and campaign), the upcoming movie season, the new “Ghostbusters” cast, the likelihood of anyone in town going to a movie Sunday afternoon instead of watching the Seahawks, what the deal really is about Spongebob Squarepants (yes, he’s back on the big screen) — in short, anything movie-related that you want to discuss. I’ll be continuing my watch on the “Fifty Shades of Grey” Reign of Terror (admit it; that trailer’s hilarious), handicapping the Oscar race, and tossing out a few titles of movies I’m especially looking forward to in early 2015. Join me! Send me a question in advance if you like — in the comments below, or to my email above — or just drop back here at noon Friday.
