The Oscars will air next Sunday, March 2nd. Most times, most people haven’t watched a lot of the movies that are nominated. For some reason, I think this year is different and people will be up to date on most of the movies. Every year I am determined to watch all and every year I fail, there’s just never enough time! Anyways, here’s a list and a few tid bit on what I thought of the movie if I’ve watched it. Let me know your number.
1. American Hustle – overhyped movie
2. 12 Years A Slave – Loved it. My favorite movie of last year
3. Gravity – Besides amazing cinematography, not sure I understood the hype. Seemed pretty basic.
4. The Wolf of Wall Street – basically acid in movie form. ’twas a fun (long) ride.
5. Dallas Buyers Club – Fantastic performances
6. Nebraska – Haven’t seen it
