The original plan when it came to the Oscar Movie List was to watch the films that I hadn’t seen. Instead, I started being the control freak that I am, watching even those film I have already seen. I enjoyed seeing the films I vaguely remember, but they did not help with my New Year’s Resolution. I’ve never had a resolution before, let alone kept one. I’m particularly driven to complete this one, especially since I have no idea where I’m going to be in six months. The Movie Project gives me some since of consistency, because no matter where I end up, I’ll be working on it.
So, I’m going to scratch movies off my list the movies I’ve already seen:
TITANIC (1997)–This was my favorite movie when I was 9, and it was the film that introduced me to the Oscar craze.
WEST SIDE STORY (1961)–I have a huge crush on the Jets’ leader Russ Tambyle.
SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE (2008)–This movie frustrated me. Why would the “million dollar” question allude to something every Indian student read in school?
DANCES WITH WOLVES (1990)–This is my mom’s favorite movie ever. I’ve seen it a zillion times. . .
FORREST GUMP (1994)–It’s always a classic, like a box of chocolates.
CHICAGO (2002)–. . . and all that jazz.
GLADIATOR (2000)–The best part of GLADIATOR is the on-location shots.
NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN (2007)–I watched this one for the first time, alone, in the dorms. That was a bad idea.
On a side note, my life is quickly becoming very entertaining. Maybe my biography won’t bore little third graders one day. I should stay writing it all down for primary sources.
