'Winter's Bone,' 'The Fighter': Which Oscar movies to catch before the show? (#1tweetreview)
By now, you know which Oscar-nominated films are the buzziest.
No doubt you left theaters a little woozy after experiencing Christopher Nolan's "Inception." (And you're probably still reeling, pun intended, after hearing of Nolan's Oscar snub.) You probably watched nerds duke it out for the duration of "The Social Network." And chances are, you sat through "127 Hours," a movie that's sort of its own spoiler alert, waiting for James Franco's hiker character to hack his own arm off.
And, after a mental tango like "Black Swan," is anyone paying any attention to leading actress nominees other than Natalie Portman? Nina, her lovely-but-creepy character, is splashed nearly everywhere there's Oscar coverage.
So which movies do you still need to bone up on? Excuse the pun in advance:
There's "Winter's Bone," a best-picture nominee which starring Jennifer Lawrence, who graces the leading lady category with Portman:
And there's "The Kids Are All Right," carried by supporting-actor nominee Mark Ruffalo.
"The Fighter" helped Christian Bale nab the Golden Globe for supporting actor. Will it help him win the Oscar?
Let us know which movies to see before the big awards show on Feb. 27.

#1tweetreview The fighter is amazingly real and entertaining! Loved it! Def underrated!
#1tweetreview Winter's Bone is a bizarrely good tale of courage, optimism and poverty. The main character is a hero on so many levels
#1tweetreview Inception, I think I need to watch it again as there is so much happening so fast. Not my favorite, but understand the hype.
