It's ACADEMY AWARD TIME!!! Online Movie Club Meetup 2012

 The announcement's been made. It's ACADEMY AWARD TIME!!!
Hey Movie clubbers,
It's that time again. Let's continue our online movie club with the homage to the 2012 Academy Awards. We will continue in the same format as last year by voting on each movie until all the nominated films have been viewed. 

Last year we waited until many of the films could be rented on/at Netflix, Redbox and Blockbuster. This year we are starting before the award show so feel free to view a few on the big screen. I hope many who participated last year comeback and I hope to welcome some newcomers as well. Together let's watch the films that are deemed worthy of the OSCAR by the academy!

The general format is to watch one film per month and meet at the end of that month to post our comments about each movie. Cast your vote for our first flick and the choice will be posted Wednesday, February 1, 2012.  I personally cannot wait to discuss The Help. Woo hoo! Let's Do it!

Click the titles to get more info about each film:
