Movies movies and more movies!

The Oscar noms have just come out.

Scott and I have been seeing the best picture nominees for the past 5 years. It's always fun because they're movies we wouldn't normally see (I'm a romantic comedy girl and he's a WWII true story guy), we get 5 kid-free dates in a month and the Oscar telecast has far more relevance if we've seen all the best picture movies. So in the next 4 weeks we're going to see:

-The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
-Slumdog Millionaire
-The Reader

Frankly I would have preferred "WallE" and "Dark Knight" to "Frost/Nixon" and "Milk" (I never look forward to the American political movies they always nominate) but I've seen them already anyway. Besides, the movies I think I'm going to hate often surprise me ("Good Night and Good Luck" from last year was surprisingly good).

I can't wait to see "Slumdog..." since the buzz is deafening. I've always been an enormous fan of Bollywood movies (anything with Shah Rukh Khan) so a aminstream one? Deeelish! Oprah said someone compared "The Reader" to "soft-core porn" so that'll be interesting. And I get to watch the handsome adulterer Brad Pitt. A 4 week movie marathon with Scott that'll start on the weekend. Can't wait.
