    “On the spot: Omar Martinez, Film sophomore”

    What’s your favorite film?

    This week …

    If you had to pick one?

    This week if I had to pick one I would say maybe “”James and the Giant Peach.””

    Really? Why?

    He overcomes his obstacles.

    With a peach?

    No. No.

    That’s fruit, Omar.

    Not with the peach. You know, sometimes the biggest enemies can be family, the biggest obstacles can be family.

    And not fruit.

    Not fruit. Yeah.

    Did you watch the Oscars?

    I did — the last part of them, like the last hour.

    Don’t you think James Cameron has enough money?  Don’t you think he seems like a douche bag?

    That’s why he didn’t win anything.

    Right? And his ex-wife won all the stuff.

    Really? The Bigelow is his ex-wife? That is sweet. She’s a hottie.

    She’s way hot. Do you think he would win or lose in a fight against Steven Spielberg? Like an all-out fist fight — no weapons, like ultimate cage fighting.

    I think Spielberg could take him ‘cause Cameron looks gauntly. He looks like … sickly.

    I think he looks like a cake-eater. I think since Spielberg has the beard, he just looks rogue.  You don’t know what he’s going do in the ring.

    Yeah, he’s a little guy.

    So, South Park or Family Guy?

    South Park.  It was trailblazing.

    And highly offensive.

    Yes, I love it.
