The Oscar race is on!

Here are the best picture nominees for 2012:

Beasts of the Southern Wild, Silver Linings Playbook, Zero Dark Thirty, Lincoln, Les Miserables, Life of Pi, Amour, Django Unchained, Argo

I have only seen Django. This needs to be remedied.

Some of these are just not playing near me anymore- Beasts of Southern Wild, Amour. Beasts in on Netflix, and at the top of my queue.

My plan is this: See them, or at least most of them. Argo cleaned house at the Globes and SAG awards, so this should be a priority. It is sadly only playing at night, at a Mall that I have never had a good movie experience at. Now, the hooligans will likely not be lining up to see Argo, but the threat of stabbing will keep me close to home. Argo shall remain a mystery unless it gets expanded release this month. Life of Pi is also at this Mall. Which is sad, as I like Ang Lee films.

Next in likely liquidity is Les Miserables. I wanted to see this, Tatum did not- so I never saw it. I expect it to vanish soon, therefore I shall check it out tomorrow and report back! That only leaves:

Beasts of the Southern Wild


Zero Dark Thirty

Silver Linings Playbook


Definitely doable by Oscar Night.

I would add The Master to this list (due to several acting noms) but its not on video, or at a theater near me. Its DVD release date is RIGHT AFTER the oscars, so it will also be missed. Oh well.

speak now, or forever hold it
