Ben Lyons, E! channel’s resident film expert and new co-host of “At The Movies” shared his Oscar picks at the Movie Night on Xbox 360 event in West Hollywood last week. “Look for a Brangelina Oscar night. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are going to get Oscar nominations. Brad for his work in “Burn After Reading” and Angelina for “Changeling.”
When Ben wasn’t talking to us about the Oscars, he gave us his review on the latest version of the movie trivia game Scene It? Box Office Smash. “It keeps me on my toes. The questions help sharpen my knowledge. This latest version includes even recent movies I’ve reviewed this year.” Another new interactive film game to look out for is You’re in the Movies, which gives everyone the opportunity to create and star in their own film. Also introduced were original film shorts that can be viewed via Xbox LIVE with the exclusive Netflix Instant Watch service. The games will be available after Thanksgiving at GameStop and Best Buy stores.
