Are you checking movies off of your list? I’ve been working hard to check some off of mine! Over the next two weeks, we’ll be taking a look at every category, as well as spotlighting each film nominated for Best Picture. In the meantime, check out my tips for tracking down hard to find movies.

Waste Land – This was a previously “unattainable” documentary, but has recently popped up in a handful of theaters in major cities (LA, DC, NY). It may be playing near you!

Unstoppable – If you missed this one in theaters, it’s available on DVD and Blu Ray on Tuesday, February 15th. Netflixers, be sure to hit up your local Blockbuster or Red Box- Netflix’s restrictions on new releases means they won’t get it in time for the ceremony.

Gasland – Are you an HBO subscriber? If so, this documentary is currently available On Demand.

Wolfman – Another one for HBO subscribers, you can catch this Best Make Up nominee On Demand now.

Shorts – Keep an eye out for a theater near you playing the animated and live action shorts. In Los Angeles, they began playing at the Nuart Theater on February 11th, and the Documentary shorts will show starting February 18th.

Best Picture Showcase – Missing some of the films nominated for Best Picture? If you think you can handle it, check our AMC’s Best Picture Showcase. They offer 2 days of Best Picture nominees, as well as a 24 hour marathon of all 10 films.
