So there were nine movies nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture this morning. Which makes nine movies I need to see in the next six weeks. Bring on the popcorn!!!

“12 Years a Slave”
“The Wolf of Wall Street”
“Captain Phillips”
“American Hustle”
“Dallas Buyers Club”

I always have the best of intentions to see movies when they are in the theater, but it never seems to happen! The waiting for them to come to Netflix is sometimes unbearable (at least Philomena is getting released soon)! Good luck digesting all of the buttery popcorn at the theater!

I too start with the best intentions… and then life happens. But when they announce the nominees for “Best Picture” my enthusiasm gets rejuvenated and I set out on a mission. At this point, I’ve now seen three… six more to go!!!

And by the way, I love your idea of tackling a new form each week. What a great idea. I tend to get stuck on making “things that sell” over & over again. And never taking the time to stretch my wings and try new things. But a challenge like this would really kick my butt. You know I love a good challenge!!!
