Almost a month ago I wrote a top seven list of the movies nominated for best picture at this year’s Oscars. In that post I mentioned I’m planning to see them all before the winners are announced and I’m doing great. I’ve seen five out ten so far. I’ve also seen two that has been nominated for other categories, which I didn’t even plan to go and see.
Here I go…
I loved it! It was visually beautiful and the story was interesting. I laughed, cried, felt frightened and relieved during the movie. It was a great experience! I give Life of Pi four thumbs up!
This movie has definitely deserved its place as a nominee for best picture! It was a great movie, though maybe a bit confusing at times. Maybe I just need to see it again. I give Beasts of the Southern Wild three thumbs up!
This has been my favorite of the the nominees for best picture. I’ve always liked Tarantino’s movies, but I think he just gets better and better. Django was fun to watch! I give Django Unchained five thumbs up!
I liked this movie and I want to see it again someday, but I don’t think it was too special and while watching it I kept thinking “why is this movie nominated for best picture?”. Is it really that special and I just don’t get it? I give Silver Linings Playbook three and a half thumbs up!
The fact that I love Jessica Chastain like crazy perhaps made me like this movie more than I normally would have. Or maybe the movie was just that great, either way, I liked it! I give Zero Dark Thirty four thumbs up!
If you want to know what other movies I’ve seen so far this year, take a look at the 50/50 challenge page. I’ll list all the movies I see and the books I read on that page!
