25 Movies To See Before Oscar Night

25 Movies To See Before Oscar Night 

…or as I like to call it, my yearly reminder that yet again I have failed to see all the movies required to ready me for the Oscars. But it’s not my fault, some movies just look like torture and I can’t bring myself to watch them. This year’s selection especially just seemed tedious. Well without further ado, here they are:

  1. American Sniper – I enjoyed this
  2. Birdman – I still am at a loss for words to say what or how I feel about this movie. It was not as terrible as I thought it would be but I also can’t tell you what I watched. I guess it was comedic?
  3. Boyhood – I enjoyed it. It was typical Richard Linklater fare and just was. Some may disagree.
  4. The Grand Budapest Hotel – I actually liked this. Visually pleasing too.
  5. The Imitation Game – I was so ready to not like this and I did. In spite of Keira Knightley being in it.
  6. Selma – Good movie. You can read my review here.
  7. The Theory of Everything – A bit slow and ever so British but decent.
  8. Whiplash – Loved it!
  9. Foxcatcher – This movie was so pointless.
  10. Two Days, One Night – I really wanted to pull my hair watching this movie. I can appreciate Marion Cortillard’s performance but gosh it just wasn’t for me.
  11. Still Alice – It was good. Kristen Stewart was in it and she was good.
  12. Gone Girl – loved it! You can read my review here
  13. Wild – Boy, was this movie a dud. Boooo-ring!
  14. The Judge – didn’t see it.
  15. Big Hero 6 – I fell asleep but I hear it’s good.
  16. Into the Woods – didn’t see it
  17. Nightcrawler – So good. Jake Gyllenhaal was robbed.
  18. Inherent Vice – It was…yea, I didn’t like it.
  19. Interstellar – didn’t see it
  20. The Boxtrolls – didn’t see it
  21. Guardians of the Galaxy – I started it on the plane and fell asleep.
  22. Unbroken – didn’t see it
  23. Turner – didn’t see it
  24. How to train your Dragon 2 – didn’t see it
  25. Ida – I started it. It was in black and white. I was so bored. Couldn’t do it. Somehow, the critics think it’s the best thing ever.

Well, these are the movies? As you can see, I have seen 15 ( I counted Ida and Guardians of the Galaxy as 1/2 each). With that, it should be 15 and half. Half for Big Hero 6?

How about you? What’s your number?

    I saw Boyhood, Gone Girl, Box Trolls on the plane. Scrolled past Night crawler. Oops. 3 of 25.

    I’m really looking forward to seeing whiplash. The trailer is bananas.
    I also plan to see Selma, imitation game, theory of everything and American sniper (not necessarily in that order…)
    I appreciate your recommendations and look forward to your list each year!
