We might as well face it, it’s gonna rain forever.
As far as I’m concerned, at this point, the one redeeming value in more summer storms is the chance to watch some “must see” movies. At the top of my list are the best picture Oscar nominees that I missed in the theater, a list I’ll finish as soon as I watch Zero Dark Thirty. So, for those of you – like me- who missed some of the best picture nominees of 2012 and love to watch movies when it’s raining outside, here they are again, in no particular order:
Lincoln, Les Miserable, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Argo (Oscar winner), Life of Pi, Zero Dark Thirty, Silver Linings Playbook, Django Unchained
All of the U.S. nominees for Best Picture of 2012 are available through the Metro Library Network and in the Media Box at the Ladd Library. Remember, Media Box Blu-rays, DVDs and games can only be reserved at the library and must be picked up within 12 hours of placing your hold. They are listed in the catalog with all of the other Blu-rays and DVDs, with the words Quick Flick in the item description.
Some family favorites endorsed by staff and available through the Metro Library Network are:
Iron Man and Iron Man 2 (PG-13), To Kill a Mockingbird, Hugo (PG), Brave (PG), Dances With Wolves (PG-13), and Field of Dreams (PG).
Now all you need is popcorn.
