2012 Oscar Checklist – Part 5: Bullhead and Monsieur Lazhar

This checklist will take a look at two of the five foreign film nominees. I will have reviews of the others, but I wanted to get these two out now because they constitute a rarity for us. They are both early reviews!!!! Bullhead opens up today and Monsieur Lazhar doesn’t open until April. Continue reading

2012 Oscar Checklist – Part 4: One-offs

I know I said animated was next but we’re going with this instead. This checklist features two films that don’t really fit with anything else that I haven’t already reviewed. The only thing they have in common is that they were nominated in just one category. Continue reading
