An upcoming blog feature, and a Blindspot update
So I’ve still been watching my Blindspot list. I’ll try to have my review of A Brighter Summer Day and The Piano up this week.
With that out of the way, I’m going to dive into a new project I’ve been wanting to try for a long time, in which I watch a slate of Best Picture nominees and decide for myself which one was the best. I don’t have a name for the project yet, but I do have a year that I’m starting with, and it’s… 1949.
As I use the “year the films came out” definition of “Oscar year”, here are that year’s best picture nominees:
All the King’s Men (winner)
A Letter to Three Wives
Twelve O’Clock High
Of these I’ve only see All the King’s Men, so I’m looking forward to parsing through this year. I’ll try to have this done sometime in August and hopefully make this a monthly feature.
Peace and love and all the best!
