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.
