As the end of the year approaches, the thing I get more and more excited for is Oscar season. It brings out the best of the bleak winter months, leading me to spend way too much money on movie tickets. One of my favorite film bloggers, the Film Experience, posted this video in a post today. It's a cool montage of the best films of 2011. There's a lot that I've already seen in the video, but still so many more to see (Meryl Streep's Margaret Thatcher biopic, the Iron Lady and the silent film The Artist are at the top of my list). I can't wait to be back at home with a movie theater that shows obscure titles again! Besides the Oscar contenders in the video, it's just a great reminder of how powerful movies can be.
