Welcome! My name is Josh, and I love movies (from Hollywood classics to international new releases) and the Academy Awards. This blog consists of my random thoughts on films I've seen, as well as some Oscar coverage. I do reviews, lists, best-of posts, Oscar stuff, and anything else that pops into my head. Generally, it's just randomness, with reviews and Oscar-related posts thrown in.
- Consider - A plea for a film (or an element of it) that will likely be overlooked in the upcoming award season.
- Decades - What started as my award winners in a given decade has turned into a full ballot of my personal nominees, posted one year at a time on Fridays.
- Double Feature - Specifically looks at two Best Picture Oscar-nominated films I've seen recently.
- Five Films in Five Words - Five films reviewed in only a word apiece.
- Movie Song of the Week - An original movie song highlighted weekly.
- Oscar Campaign Bust - A brief look at films that've campaigned unsuccessfully for Oscars.
- Oscar Oddity - Obscure Oscar facts and statistics.
- Vs. - One film is pitted against a related other one, and I determine which one "wins".
