26 days to go!

Happy Tuesday, FFLs!

The Academy Awards air in just 26 days. How many Oscar-nominated films do you have left to see? I still have 37 left unchecked on my list (yikes). For the films I still have left to see, I’ve shared the most common outlets I’ve found they are available (below). Feel free to take notes/share other outlets for which you’ve found they are also available.

“20 Feet from Stardom” – Available on On Demand, Amazon, iTunes

“All is Lost” – Available on On Demand, Redbox (2/11), Amazon

“Before Midnight” – Available on Redbox, iTunes, Amazon

“Despicable Me 2” – Available on Netflix, Redbox, iTunes, Amazon

“Dirty Wars” – Available on Netflix, Amazon, iTunes

“Frozen” – Still playing in theatres

“Nebraska” – Available on Redbox (2/25)

“Saving Mr. Banks” – Still playing in theatres

“The Croods” – Available on Netflix, Redbox, iTunes, On Demand

“The Invisible Woman” – Is coming back to a local theatre near me

“The Lone Ranger” – Available on Redbox, Amazon, iTunes

“The Wolf of Wall Street” – Still playing in theatres

Oscar Shorts – A local theatre of mine is showcasing all of the Oscar-nominated short films, beginning next week. Some theatres do special showings of the Oscar-nominated short films and/or bring back other Oscar-nominated films, before the Oscars air. Do some research to see if a local theatre near you is showcasing any of these films.

And then there are some I am having a hard time finding anywhere…

“Alone Yet Not Alone,” “Broken Circle Breakdown,” “Ernest & Celestine,” “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom,” “Omar,” “Philomena,” “The Grandmaster,” “The Hunt,” “The Missing Picture,” and “The Wind Rises.”

Any suggestions?  Please share!

I’m a little behind on my film reviews, I know, but I will try my hardest to get those posted ASAP.

Gravity companion short: Aningaaq

For those of you who have seen “Gravity,” you’ll definitely want to check this out.

Jonas Cuarón, the son of “Gravity” director Alfonso Cuarón, wrote and directed a beautifully done short film that gives viewers a look into the other side of Dr. Ryan Stone’s distress call in “Gravity.”  Also a co-writer of “Gravity,” Jonas Cuarón’s short film could potentially be up for an Oscar nomination at the 86th Academy Awards next year (nominations will be announced on January 16, 2014).  And according to The Hollywood Reporter, if both “Aningaaq” and “Gravity” are nominated for an Oscar, it would be the first time in history that a film and its spin-off are up for a nomination in the same year.
