Films: Oscar Nominated Animated Shorts

According to The Independent, there is a "strong crop of Animated Short Film nominees this year". Some of these will be shown at the Carolina theater this weekend at 3 pm.  Let's review all 88 minutes of them and do our own analysis. Who will get the Oscar?

Meet in the upstairs lobby between 2:30 and 2:40. The movie starts at 3 and may be crowded so get there early. I believe normal matinee prices apply ($7) but I will check to be sure.

    Even in a little pain, I was glad I didn't cancel the Meetup. I really enjoyed the animated shorts. I think they are much more creative than the big Hollywood movies that get rehashed over and over again. These were all good (of course, they are Oscar nominated) and I don't think I could pick one winner. I liked them for different reasons....comical, creative, touching, etc. I'm just glad I saw them and don't have to make that decision.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
