Summer has begun. We’re in the middle of blockbuster season. So why the hell are you reading something about the Oscars? What kind of movie blog is this, anyway?

Well, for the first time in years, I’ve seen and reviewed every nominee for Best Picture.  No mean feat considering there were 10 films competing for the prize.

Some of ’em I’ve already written about on Kinnemaniac. A couple I’ve done for Total Film.  So, for the next week, I’m going to complete the set with movie reviews of the rest.

Those Oscar nominees in full:
