Before you watch the Oscars this weekend why not catch the nominated movies that you missed in the theater in the comfort of your own home via On Demand. We have a bunch of the nominees available for viewing, including:
- The Hurt Locker
- Julie & Julia (one of my wife’s favorites from the year)
- Inglorious Basterds
- A Serious Man (I’m a serious Coen Brothers fan and loved this movie)
- District 9
That’s just a small sampling of what you’ll find in the "Oscar Films & More" collection on your On Demand menu.
If you’re a frequent movie goer chances are you’ve already seen many of the nominated films, though repeated viewings are always fun, but have you seen the nominated live and animated shorts? I bet you haven’t! Starting today (March 3rd) you can check watch Door, Instead of Abracadabra, Kavi, Miracle Fish, A Matter of Loaf and Death, French Roast, The Lady and the Reaper, Sleeping Beauty and the rest of the shorts On Demand (they’ll be in the "Oscar Films & More" as well).
You’ll also find some films in the Oscar Films & More folder by a man that might surprise you: Roger Corman. Corman is known as the "King of the B’s," because he has produced something like 300 movies (and directed over 50). The Academy, in recognition of both his work and mentoring of other directors, awarded Corman the Lifetime Achievement Academy Award this year. Check out some of his opus On Demand including The Raven with Jack Nicholson, St. Valentine’s with Jason Robards and The Wild Angels with both Nancy Sinatra and Peter Fonda.
Be sure to check out Fancast Xfinity TV’s special Oscar section to watch trailers and find out more about current and past nominees.
