25 Movies to see before Oscar Night

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

7.  Captain Phillips – Actually better than I thought it would be

8.  Philomena – Havent seen it

9.  Her – Liked it a lot. Weird, poignant love story that shows where our society is headed.

13. Saving Mr Banks – I enjoyed it and thought Emma Thompson was great in it

16. The Great Gatsby – I didn’t think it was as bad as everyone said it was. My review is here.

17. Before Midnight – I heart the trilogy. Realest movie about marriage.

18. Despicable Me 2 – It wasn’t the best thing but it was okay for me.

19. All is Lost – Really thought this would be crap. It was okay.

20. Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom – Could have been better.

21. The Book Thief – Seeing as I just struggled to finish the book, don’t know if the movie was better.

22. The Great Beauty – Haven’t seen it but I really want to.
