Movie Mania

I have this thing about trying to see all the Oscar Best Picture noms before the ceremony (mostly because I want to win Jacinda's pool and get a fabulous prize that she mails out.  Victory is sweet).  I'm usually able to do this every year, but it looks like AMC wants to make this a little easier with some movie marathons! 

Two Saturdays (Feb 19 and 26) - 5 movies each day.  You pay for a bulk deal and get a giftcard to offset your food cost, although I am a pro at sneaking in Mexican Pizzas and 32 oz sodas.  Lucky for me, the three flicks I haven't yet seen are all on the same day, so I'd only need a single day pass.  Hmmm.

Realistically, do I think I could do this?  Probably not.  I usually pass out after two in a row.  But the idea is cool and helpful in my worthless pursuit.  Plus, I like the big screens and dark rooms.

11am - Toy Story 3
1pm - 127 Hours (need to see)
3pm - The Kids Are All Right
5:45 - True Grit (need to see)
7:45pm - The Fighter (need to see)

If you're really crazy, you can watch all ten, back to back on Saturday the 26th.  Inception at 2am has got to be trippy.....

ok as a movie-obsessed freak, that's pretty much the greatest thing i have ever heard of. i wonder if i would like it better in theory than in practice, though... but oscar-nom films might make it manageable.

p.s. how much did you love the kids are all right? i loved it so so much.
