I enjoyed the first movie a little more but this one still has heart and action. It's definitely high on the list.

Written by: Wes Anderson
I have mixed feelings about Wes Anderson but I have enjoyed a film or two of his and this one is about a boy trying to find his lost dog. So I'm hoping for more heart. It's on HBO so I'm planning on getting to this one before the Oscars.

This is a Japanese film that's pretty recent. So I'm not sure if I'll be able to get it before the Oscars but I know I'll enjoy it once I'm able to see it.

Overall, this was a solid sequel. They had a great bit with the Disney princesses that was comic gold.
Starring: Shameik Moore, Jake Johnson, Hailee Steinfeld

It's not playing anymore in my area but if I can find a way to see it before the Oscars I'll be very happy. It was on my list in December but the holidays pulled me from the movie theaters.
I'm hoping to see 3/5 animated features before the Oscars!
Directed by: Jimmy Chin and Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi
I don't know if I'll get to this one before the Oscars but I definitely want to see it! Looks intense.

I enjoyed this intimate look at the Black community in Hale County, Alabama.
Directed by: Bing Liu
I definitely plan on seeing this on Hulu. It looks like it might be a tear-jerker.
Directed by: Talal Derki
Talal Derki returned home and gained the trust of a radical Islamist family. Derki was able to document their lives for two years.
I'm not sure if I'll be able to watch this one. It's probably one I should watch but I don't think I can right now.
Directed by: Julie Cohen, Betsy West
Hulu has two of these I need to watch! I love me some RBG so I'll definitely be watching this before the Oscars.
I should have 3/5 watched before the Oscars!
