Films Oscar Forgot 2008

Some of the films I would like to have seen get more attention by the Academy this year are:

 Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who                                                                                                                                                             I reviewed it on my St. Anthony Messenger column earlier this year An Awesome Pachyderm and wrote Horton Hears a Who Study Guide.

Quantum of Solace

Although my initial review reflected disappointment, I was invited to take a deeper look by a friend; I even gave it one of my CineRose Awards in St. Anthony Messenger because of its moral dimension:  Quantum of Solace. I also think the Academy missed the cinematography which from the beginning I thought was brilliant (the opera scene, the visual parallels, awesome.)

And there were others…

‘Martin Sheen and Sister Rose: Activist Catholics’ by Heather King
The perfect book for Lent (and pictures from the book signing!)
’50 Shades of Grey’ or “Lifestyles of the rich and perverse” according to Catholic News Service
At the 35th Annual Razzie Awards: “own your bad!” and now “own your good!”
