Are you on Oscar watch?

An obsession with all things Oscar is in full swing at LaMovBlog. Here are the movies, now playing in The Shreve, you should pay attention to:

"Gran Torino" (Cinemark Tinseltown, Louisiana Boardwalk 14)

"Defiance" (Cinemark Tinseltown, Louisiana Boardwalk 14)

"Last Chance Harvey" (Cinemark Tinseltown, Robinson Film Center)

"The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" (Cinemark Tinseltown, Bossier Corners 9)

"Australia" (Bossier Corners 9)

"Doubt" (Bossier Corners 9)

"Let the Right One In" (Robinson Film Center)

"The Reader" (Robinson Film Center)

And of course, "Paul Blart: Mall Cop." It's an early best pic fave for next year's race.

I am surprised at how many of the important films I have already managed to see. "The Reader" is on tonight's agenda. "Slumdog Millionaire" next week...

I'll be curious about your thoughts on "The Reader." I have pretty sharp opinions about it.

What about sundance? Is anyone following it and do you have any picks to watch?

Chris Lyon said...

I heard that Sundance had slim pickins this year. Word on the street is that Slamdance has more interesting films than its big brother down the street.

I'm checking in with Blayne Weaver today about "Weather Girl's" screening at Slamdance.

ChrisBrad said...

I sent you my first thoughts on "The Reader."

Very... yeah.

bad news: "Let the Right One In," along with just about every other great foreign film i saw this year, has been left off of the foreign language oscar short-list, which was announced last week. there is a huge controversy over the list. i have heard that the early frontrunners are "Waltz with Bashir" (coming to the RFC in March) and "The Class." The one most often cited as an omission is "Gomorrah," an Italian film.

Do the readers of LaMoBlog need to run the Academy?

It seems every single year there is always some sort of problem with the foreign language category. How on earth can anyone make something so difficult year after year?

Grr.....

I've been lobbying for you, ChrisBrad, to take over the nomination process for three years but to no avail. I'll keep fightin' for ya! (And I want a front row seat when you're head honcho!)

I can do better than a front row seat. I'll put a recliner on stage for ya!
