If you’re anything like me, you make a point to watch as many “Oscar films” as possible before the February ceremony. To help me with this, I assemble a checklist of sorts every fall, ordering each film by release date. To that end, listed below are some of this year’s biggest prospects that are either currently in theatres or set to be released in the upcoming weeks. In the event that I’ve seen one of the films listed, I included my rating out of 10.
Currently in Theatres
Gone Girl (7/10)
The Theory of Everything (9/10)
The Imitation Game (9/10)
Inherent Vice (6/10)
