The Oscar Project
Happy Mother’s Day to everyone. To all the mothers out there, thank you for all that you do for your children. We might not always tell you, but we appreciate your love and support. If you’re not a mother yourself, reach out to your own mom or someone you know who is a mother and make their day a little brighter.
Now, on to our movie pick of the week.
This week, we are looking at movies that are Set During Your Favorite Time Period. Now, this is obviously going to be different for everyone since each person will have a different time period they like. Fortunately, the world of the Internet, specifically Wikipedia has put together a list of films set during various periods of history. This “List of historical films set in Near Eastern and Western civilization” is broken down by age (Stone, Bronze, Iron) and then by centuries for more recent time periods so you can easily find something that suits your fancy. And if you don’t know what your favorite time period is yet, just look through the list and see what catches your eye.
My Selection-The Egyptian
After spending some time in the distant future with Serenity a few weeks back, it’s time to jump way back to the time of Ancient Egypt. I have always been fascinated by Ancient Egypt, starting with my early obsession with the David Macaulay book Pyramid. I have spent many hours in the 932 section of the library and the fact that I know that number should tell you something of how much I love that period of history.
I’m also interested in going back to a period of movie history that had a much different kind of film. The trailer for this below promotes the fact that it is presented in Cinemascope, so watching it at home won’t have quite the effect, but the grandeur of the film will still be there.
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?
