Seeing as it is Oscar Sunday, we figured this would be a good one to cross off today, as all of our parents’ choices are Oscar winners.
We started at 9:00am, and finished around 7:30pm, watching chronologically by release date, without breaks so we would be finished in time to watch the Oscars. We started out with coffee, moved to popcorn, and started drinking by the fourth movie.
