I'm trying to watch all 9 of this year's nominees for Best Picture.
"Malick, a deeply thoughtful director who studied philosophy at Harvard and Oxford, reflects on the interconnectedness and interdependence of all living things, no matter how miniscule or magnificent. The death of a brother lingers profoundly in the life of his emotionally damaged sibling just as the Big Bang reverberates throughout the cosmos, and a relatively small meteorite crash instigates a cataclysmic ripple of death for the dinosaurs."
So that's 5 down, 4 to go: The Descendants, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, Midnight in Paris and War Horse. I'm not too excited about the 9/11 movie (the previews are kind of annoying) and I don't love Woody Allen. But War Horse is World War I (one of my favorite eras) and The Descendants has Cloons, so I'm up for seeing both of those.
And why didn't Tin Tin get a nod for Best Animated Film? I liked that one.
