Lights. Camera. Action.
This post is the second installment of my Academy Awards-inspired for 2013.
Please check out Part 1 at your leisure if you haven't already.
Where Part 1 was creative and inspiring, Part 2 is a pseudo-parody--it goes from bad to worse with a little bit of laughter thrown in. I still love movies. I still love television. I also love being trendy (at times) and trendsetting. I'm just having a little fun this time around.
This post highlights four 2013 best picture nominees (with a
synopsis in 20 words or less):
Life of Pi
A boy, Pi, survives a shipwreck, loses his family while traveling to Canada and befriends a Bengal tiger. Or does he?
MENU: Grilled Mahi Mahi, Naan, Sauteed Vegetables, Cherry Cobbler
Set in 1865, U.S. President Abraham Lincoln rallies for passage of the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution & his demise.
MENU: Chicken Fricassee, Steamed Potatoes, Stewed Apples, Honey Butter Biscuits
I have no interest in seeing this movie. I already know what happens. But the above menu is reportedly all of Abraham Lincoln's favorite foods.
Silver Linings Playbook
An unlikely couple are thrown together for a dance competition & a wager on the Philadelphia Eagles is on the line.
MENU: Philly Cheese Steaks, Herr's Potato Chips, TastyKakes, Yuengling Lager Beer
Philly is one of the best food towns in America. While there is a distinct regional cuisine, I am 100% American and I have to pay homage to the manufactured foodstuffs of my birthplace. The only things missing: Scrapple,Victory Beer and soft pretzels.
Zero Dark Thirty
The greatest manhunt and defeat of the world's most dangerous man. Ever.
MENU: Thanksgiving Dinner
What's more American than Thanksgiving? Nothing.
