The Oscar Project
For anyone who has been keeping track of films in the past year, you know about the phenomenon that is Avengers: Infinity War and the anticipation that has come along with the pending release of the final film in this chapter of the MCU, Avengers: Endgame. While I'm not quite ready to give my nominee watch rundown of this film yet, I am taking this month to re-watch all 21 films in the MCU leading up to Endgame.
In conjunction with this mini-project, I will be writing reviews for the website for each film, culminating with a review of Endgame itself at the end of the month. The review for the first film (Iron Man) is already posted and I have provided a full list in the post below which I will update with links to each review as I post them.
If you have to catch up on any of the films, head to your local library and borrow them while you have a chance or check them out on the digital streaming service of your choice. I have included links below to watch the films on Netflix if they are currently available there as well as purchase links to Amazon for the physical copies. Note: the Amazon links are affiliate links which means using them will help support this site but won't cost you any more if you choose to buy.
There is lots of new horror coming out this weekend, along with some films that look to be just plain fun. Check out the best contenders for Oscars in the post below. There are definitely a few with potential.
Arguably the biggest opening this weekend is Disney's live-action remake of their classic animated film Dumbo. If you're like me, you're eagerly anticipating not one, not two, but three live-action remakes from the House of Mouse this year (Aladdin and The Lion King being the other two). We also have a few big names in limited releases coming this weekend. Click through to find out more.
This is the second monthly post with a list of Oscar nominees and winners that will be making their way to Netflix in the coming month. I will update the post with links throughout the month as the movies become available on the streaming service.
This month we have a few oldies from the 70s and 80s as well as a few more recent films that have won awards in the last decade.
Check out the films below and don't forget to check out the March 2019 post for the films that arrived last month, all of which you can watch right now.
I'm trying a new type of post here this month similar to what some sites publish with the new content that will be available on Netflix in the coming month. Since this site is focused on the Oscars, I'm posting this list below and films coming to Netflix in March that were nominated for or won an Oscar in the past. I have included direct links to watch the films on the streaming service. Just log in and start watching today!
While I haven't seen all of these films, there are definitely some gems in this crops of films. many of which are already streaming as of the first of the month. Catch up on your past Oscar film watching.
You'll notice that the Nominee Watch is earlier in the week than normal because this is an odd week for releases with Valentine's Day hitting on Thursday. We have a few wide releases hitting theaters on Wednesday and another on Thursday with only limited releases coming out on Friday.
If you're looking for any Oscar potential films for your Valentine's dates, check out the post for more information.
It's a sequel weekend, kind of, with one very obvious sequel and one that's a little less obvious.
While you're here, check out the new section I've added to the website where I am starting to post full length film reviews. The first film up is the Oscar nominated film RBG.
There is only one major release this weekend and a slew of smaller films. Don't look for much in the way of nominations coming out of this crop though. Next week promises to be much better overall.
The Oscar nominations were officially announced this morning and to get things started, I've put up a list of polls below where you can vote for your choice for each category.
The polls are listed in the order the categories were handed out at last year's Oscar ceremony and each category has the nominated films listed in alphabetical order to try and eliminate any bias on my part.
Find the full list of nominations on the Oscar.com website and look for summaries of each category coming soon!
The Oscar nominations were announced early Tuesday morning and there are already a few noticeable surprises along with a few snubs. The Favourite and Roma led the way with 10 nominations each, followed by A Star is Born and Vice with 8 and Black Panther with 7.
In this post, I list out all of the nominees with no real outlook on who will win. I also look back on my prediction posts to see how close I came to picking the right nominees (I think I did pretty well with most of the categories.
Keep your eyes here over the coming days for more Oscar coverage including the opportunity to vote for who you think will take home the statuettes in February!
I'm just a film buff who wants to watch great movies. Where else to find the best, than the list of those nominated by the Academy each year?
