I'm going Oscar hunting...
I'm going to try, this year, to convert 5% of the hours I give to my reading addiction to movies. I don't know exactly what that will be but I can guess that it might be about a movie a week. It won't be easy but I'm going to give it a shot. And no, I won't bore you with a movie review every single week - what I might do is an occasional round-up of what I've seen recently.
So what have I seen? The King's Speech and Barney's Version. What do I plan to see? True Grit. The Social Network. The Fighter. Toy Story 3. Winter's Bone. The Illusionist. How to Train Your Dragon. The Town. Incendies. Inception. A few of these are on video on demand which will help both my pocket book and my scheduling problems.
What am I avoiding? 127 Hours - I don't think I can bear to see it though I know it's probably amazing, in a creepy kind of way. Black Swan - I will see it, but not in the middle of a movie marathon - again I know it's an amazing film, but kind of tough. Blue Valentine - another tough film that I want to see but not right now.
So if you're looking for me this week, you'll find me in front of a big screen somewhere.
