Sad to say, I have not even seen one of the motion pictures that are up for Best Picture at tonight’s Academy Awards. Here is the list:
- Beasts of the Southern Wild
- Django Unchained
- Les Misérables
- Life of Pi
- Silver Linings Playbook
- Zero Dark Thirty
Honestly, “Life of Pi,” “Lincoln,” and “Amour” are the only ones I’ve been hankering to see. I wanted to read the book again before seeing “Pi,” and time constraints more than anything else have kept me out of the theater in recent days, so I’ve missed the others for that primary reason.
This means we need movie reviews — fast! — so that I can have some idea what I’m watching tonight.
I therefore invite you to chime in with your impressions and evaluations of the various films and performances that are being featured tonight (or perhaps, in your opinion, are being overlooked).
What movies and performances impressed you this year, and why?
