Not sure where you live... but maybe this will be in your area this weekend. https://www.coda.film/tickets/ Seems pretty limited tough.

Yeah, I'd have to drive into NYC from Connecticut. It would cost more in gas/tolls/parking/train/etc. than it would for me to pay for a year of Apple TV+.

Re: Vote for your favorite Best Picture nominee. (2022 Oscars)

I finally saw them all and for me it’s Licorice Pizza narrowly over CODA and Nightmare Alley.

It did help that I’m from LA and I really enjoyed some of the Easter eggs that would resonate with anyone that lived there in the 70s. For example, I used to live in Joel Wachs council district and I remember when waterbeds were a popular fad. Also, the title comes from a defunct record store chain called “Licorice Pizza”.

One thing I have to wonder about …

Spoiler:
Is Jon Peters really that much of a jerk in real life?

Wanted to wait until I saw Power of the Dog. It's exceptionally well made but really unpleasant so I will stick with the cool hang of Licorice Pizza over the thrilling remake of West Side Story.

Re: Vote for your favorite Best Picture nominee. (2022 Oscars)

It looks like I won't be able to see Coda in time. My favorites in order:

Nightmare Alley
Belfast
Licorice Pizza
Dune
West Side Story
King Richard
Power of the Dog
Drive My Car
Don't Look Up

The last time I didn't get to see ALL nominees was for the 2011 Oscars. King's Speech was the only one I didn't get to see.....Aaaaand, we all know what happened there.

My favorite was Nightmare Alley.
Haven't seen licorice pizza yet unfortunately.

​​​​​​Power of the Dog was a better movie, imo

Re: Vote for your favorite Best Picture nominee. (2022 Oscars)

have seen all except Licorice Pizza and Drive My Car. My theatre always has an Oscar week so I'm going to do a double header Saturday to see West Side Story (which I loved but only saw streaming) and Licorice Pizza. Then Sunday afternoon I'll try to watch Drive My Car. I loved Power of the Dog, watched it twice. Enjoyed all the other nominees also.

I may check out a couple others before the awards shows but right now I guess Iíll go with Power of the Dog.
I ran out of time and will probably not get a chance to watch CODA, Belfast, or Drive My Car before tomorrow. Of the others that Iíve seen, none of them really blew me away. I guess my choice is still Power of the Dog but Iím not really invested in any of them.

Yeah, wasn't able to catch CODA, Licorice Pizza or Belfast. Out of the ones I did see most of them were enjoyable but, like you, not really blew away by any of them.

Re: Vote for your favorite Best Picture nominee. (2022 Oscars)

Finally got around to watching the Power of the Dog tonight; I have and have had Netflix the whole time so it's just general laziness. That was my tenth film. I really liked quite a few of them, but I went with Dune.

Stumbled in here for no reason but to see what folks thought. I just realized Don't Look Up was nominated for best picture. And the Oscars wonder why they have issues.

I've only seen Dune and Don't Look Up, Dune destroys DLU so I'll go with that.

Looks like the forum is going with Dune.

Re: Vote for your favorite Best Picture nominee. (2022 Oscars)

The only one I didn't see was Coda. It's hard for me to pick my favorite between Licorice Pizza and Power Of The Dog, but I settled on Licorice Pizza because of how cinematic it felt. As great as the story and performances in POTD are, it felt more like a high-end TV show.

So I'd rank the nominees as:
Licorice Pizza
The Power of the Dog
West Side Story
Don't Look Up
Drive My Car
Nightmare Alley
Belfast
King Richard

Dune

Well, this has been a helpful strategy for winners!
