Hello gentle readers,
As I gradually wrap my brain around how to finish my current short story, A Slow Death in Vienna, I have decided to start writing more movie reviews; as a way to stretch my tender writing muscles. Since it is nearly Oscar season, I find it highly appropriate to start with some nominee hopefuls. When it comes to the Oscars, its a safe bet on what films will garner SOME sort of nomination. With that in mind, I have a rough list of what I want to watch before The 84th Academy Awards on February 26th. I want to be fully prepared this year for the Oscars; as my good friends and I shall be throwing down some Washingtons and MAYBE even some Lincolns, betting on the annual awards show.
Over my vacation I saw The Descendants, which shall be my first “Oscarific” review. Other films that I will definitely see and review are Midnight In Paris and The Tree of Life. My Week With Marylin, Beginners, Hugo, The Help and The Artist are also on my rough list of things to see.
And hopefully sometime in between all of that I will finish my story!
