(.. or maybe it's just plain ordinary madness...)
Sorry, long-suffering blog readers of mine, but it is February once again, which means that the Academy Awards are coming up at the end of the month and I have that odd tradition of making sure I see all of the Best Picture Oscar nominees, which means that I end up cramming a bunch of films into the month of February.
This year there are nine Best Picture nominees, and I've so far seen four of them: Midnight in Paris (Woody Allen), The Artist, The Help, and Moneyball (Brad Pitt).
The five I plan on seeing before February 26: Hugo (Martin Scorcese in 3D), The Descendents (George Clooney), Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, War Horse (Spielberg), The Tree of Life.
So pardon me as I make much ado about nothing, and fair warning: I might hit on one or two of you good people to see a couple of these shows with me.
