Last year, I went to the AMC Best Picture Showcase. I had a great time watching all five of the nominated Best Pictures back to back. When I look back on last year's pictures, for some reason Little Miss Sunshine and Letters from Iwo Jima stand out more than Babel or The Departed. As much as I liked The Queen, I am not sure that I would watch the film again.
I just saw that AMC is doing it again this year on Saturday, February 23. And, like last year, I have not seen any of the films. There Will Be Blood, Juno and No Country for Old Men look fantastic. I notice this year, they are only doing free large popcorn, and no drink. Hmmm. Perhaps I will bring my extra large coat this year to hide the sodas.
