Sadly, TCM’s 31 Days of Oscar is about to come to an end. What a run, though, eh? I must have watched at least 100 new-to-me films in the last few weeks (that’s a conservative estimate; I’ll do a full recap of my crazy February film watching escapades tomorrow). Did you find any new favorites? I know I sure did. So here’s my last post about this wonderful month of programming. As always there are so many great films being shown, some I’ve seen and some I can’t wait to see for the first time.
What a wonderful week we just had! I think I’ll’ve watched 25 new-to-me films from this last week, plus a few rewatches (The Third Man!) I hope you guys found some great new films to watch as well. This coming week looks like the best week they’ve had so far. It’s chock full of Best Picture winners; some nights they’re showing as many as three in a row.
Week two was wonderful, wasn’t it? Although last week’s schedule included a lot of films I’d already seen, I think by the end of tonight I’ll’ve managed to see 28 new-to-me films. I also had a wonderful experience watching Gone With The Wind on Saturday night (it’s my second favorite film of all time!) I hope you guys found some great films to watch as well. This coming week is filled with even more great films.
So how did your viewings fair during the first week of TCM’s 31 Days of Oscar? Before I go to bed tonight I hope to have seen about 30 or films (blame the DVR). This coming week has some really great stuff scheduled. Especially on Saturday; they will be showing every sing film nominated for Best Picture for 1939, widely considered the greatest year in cinema. I’m excited for that day, though I will admit I’ve only not seen two of those films. But hey, after Saturday, I’ll’ve seen them all!
31 Days of Oscar-winning and Oscar-nominated films? This is why I love Oscar season so much. Turner Classic Movies doesn’t stick with just classics, they’ve got things as new as 2003′s The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King on their schedule. 31 days of non-stop Oscar is a lot to handle, so I thought I’d give y’all a little help. So with this post I’ll go from February 1st through the 7th and tell you what I’m looking forward to the most. Some of these picks are films I’ve already seen, but recommend you watch if you haven’t, and some are films that I’ll be watching for the very first time. I’ll do the same for the other three weeks of their schedule as well.
