A short interview with +Google+ on movies and The Oscars!
Talking #Oscars, film, and hidden gems with +Nathan Chase

Nathan Chase runs one of the biggest movie Communities on G+ (appropriately titled, 'Movies'), enjoy our conversation on cinema and feel free to recommend more film-related Communities or Collections in the comment section below!

Nathan, where does your passion for movies stem from?

"My passion for film draws from weekend trips to the local video store, binge-watching movies in the 80s on TV and VHS, and going to our local theaters with family and friends often. I became much more interested in film history and the medium as a whole during undergrad studies in college, and have been heavily drawn into the film world since launching +Flickchart."

What's Flickchart and how long has it been around?

"Flickchart is a website and social network (and useful tool) where movie addicts can rank films two at a time, which automatically creates a personalized "best of all-time" chart of all the movies they've seen in their lifetime, and then receive targeted recommendations based on those choices they make. We launched the site in September of 2009. We're working towards a huge product release of an entirely new "2.0" version of the site built on bleeding edge web technologies hopefully later this year."

Give us one fantastic movie that most people have never heard of?

"Triangle (2009) is a horror-psychological thriller that plays with time in a way that I've not seen done before with as well since Back to the Future. The script is extremely clever, and it doesn't pander to its audience. It's a challenging, but very rewarding watch. I champion it as often as I can."

What films are you rooting for at The #Oscars this year, and why?

"I'd really like to see Kubo and the Two Strings earn Best Animated Feature, as the amount of talent and patience needed to create that style of art is infinitely impressive to me. Other than that, I'm rooting for Arrival to win as much as it can in as many categories as possible. Smartly-written science fiction often doesn't get much Oscar love, so I'm all for it making a mark this year."

What movie do you predict to win Best Picture?

"As much as Hollywood tends to self-aggrandize, it seems like La La Land has the best shot. It's possible Moonlight could be the undercard winner, but it seems like a safe or obvious pick.

Lots of fond memories. Sad to see its plug finally pulled.
FriendFeed's Closure Another Painful Loss from a Vibrant Era of Social Media
/via +louisgray.com 

"If you were part of the active community that made FriendFeed special in those wide-eyed years, you experienced something I've never seen with any community since (with occasional flashes on Google+ and Twitter being exceptions). If you missed it, then you missed out on seeing one of the most talented teams ever assembled working on something that was both fun and smart. And that story's final chapter is coming without us ever getting the happy ending we were hoping for. I'm not mad, just wistful at what might have been.

Long live FriendFeed."
