25 Movies To See Before Oscar Night

So you guys know it's my season..award season that is. I love award season. It's just the perfect bow to the whole year of everything popculture. It's exhilarating to see deserving people win, frustrating to see the snubs and fun to see your early predictions come true. Anyways, the Oscars are my least favorite award shows even though they are the most prestigious. I am just so over the old ass Academy now with their stuffiness/politics/sticking to old rules. They really need to branch out and see beyond the "usuals". All that being said, every year EW publishes the list of 25 movies to see before Oscar night and every year I try to watch most of it. I have never watched all 25 in all the many years I have been doing this, just because there are just some movies I will never watch, some movies are hard to find and by the time I have access I am like meh. So here we go:

1.  Frankenweenie
2.  Compliance
3.  The Perks of being a wallflower
4.  Middle of Nowhere
5.  How to survive a plague
6.  Looper
7.  The Dark Knight Rises
8.  The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
9.  Wreck-It Ralph
10. Anna Karenina
11. The Sessions
12. Django Unchained
13. Beasts of the Southern Wild
14. Moonrise Kingdom
15. The Master
16. Rust and Bone
17. The Impossible
18. Flight
19. Amour
20. Life of Pi
21. Silver Linings Playbook
22. Argo
23. Zero Dark Thirty
24. Les Miserables
25. Lincoln

So yea that's the list. How many has yours truly seen? A measly 10 - 3, 7, 8, 11, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, 22- but I still have time. I'll definitely have upped my number by Oscar night. I probably wont see 1 and 9 sha. How about you? Leave a comment and tell me your number and which ones you've seen. Golden Globes on Sunday. If you follow me on twitter, you can look out for my commentary. Have a wonderful weekend!
