Lauren and I signed up for Nexflix a few weeks ago.  We had been toying with the idea for a while, but it finally made sense.  We originally signed up so that Lauren could get her fix of the TV show Bones.  We watched two discs of Bones and rearranged our queue for our latest endeavor.

We’re going to try to watch every film that has one an Academy Award.

Lauren made a list going all the way back to 1927 with all the winning films.  Netflix doesn’t carry 3 of them, so we are going to put the winning films for 1927, 1928, and 1933 on hold until we can find them somewhere where we can rent them.

Thursday night we started by watching the 1929 award winning film The Broadway Melody.  I’m not going to talk much about the film, but if you want some insight about it, check out what Lauren thought of it. It was interesting to watch a movie that was considered the “best of it’s time,” when it’s time was almost 90 years ago.  The plot was better than I expected.

Well, that’s it.  I thought I would share a bit of what we’ve got going on.  Anyone seen The Broadway Melody?  or The Dogway Melody (read Lauren’s thoughts on the movie to learn about that)?  Has anyone seen all the Academy Award winning movies?

cheers.
