Almost Every Academy Award Best Picture Nominee, Reviewed

A last-minute guide to potential winners of the top prize at this year's Oscars.

The 85th Academy Awards are on Sunday, and while they’ll probably be worth watching just for the sake of hearing host Seth MacFarlane do all the voices from Family Guy, you’ll probably get more out of the broadcast if you’ve actually seen a handful of the films that are up for awards. Today and tomorrow are your last opportunities to catch this year’s Best Picture nominees in theatres, but which ones should you skip? Links to our reviews of all of them (except Les Misérables, which we somehow never got around to seeing—though you can check out the trailer, above) are after the jump.
