THE OSCAR PROJECT
The Oscar Project
A quest to watch every Oscar nominated film
We’ve made it through three months of the 52 week challenge this year, and I know I have seen some great (and not so great) movies that I might not have seen otherwise. I hope you are doing the same and filling in some gaps on your film resume.
This week, we turn our attention to television. No, we’re not picking a TV series to watch in its entirety this week. Our category for week 13 is a film that is Based on or Turned Into a TV Series. As usual, you have plenty to pick from, and as usual you have plenty of movies to pick from. I found a list on Wikipedia of films based on television programs, and a list of TV shows based on films, so you can go either way. With all the new shows on streaming services in the last decade, I’m sure you can find a movie that interests you to fill either of these categories.
My Selection-The Avengers
I remember seeing the trailers for this film in high school and thinking it looked amazing. For whatever reason I never got around to seeing it. I had seen Sean Connery in The Rock and more recently Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy in Batman & Robin the previous year and I knew so this piqued my teenage interest in many ways.
I'm just a film buff who wants to watch great movies. Where else to find the best, than the list of those nominated by the Academy each year?
