Good news for those who want a break from the mid-season reruns. I have been looking for good entertainment for this time of year for a bit when i found out about this at work.

Turner Classic Movies has officially launched their annual 31 Days of Oscar festival. It'll be very fun and will feature 360 Academy Award-nominated and winning movies, presented uncut and commercial-free.

Classic film buffs like myself (Singin in the Raid anyone)and film neophytes will love this collection of great critical darlings. I work for a marketing company doing some of the campaigning for Turner and I find myself really looking forward to seeing some of the classics that'll be airing this month.

Check out the list of movies here: 31 Days of Oscar (http://youcastcorp.com/c/88/go/index.php?r=2 - broken link)

Ahh, yeah, I love TCM in March and October (when they do the classic horror showcase). One of the reasons I miss cable, but I'm trying to make up for it by watching a lot of classic action movies via Netflix. "Bridge On The River Kwai" is tonight's scheduled feature!

Great film! I personally can't wait for the end of the marathon when they show "Ben Hur". I have heard great things.

I'm not digging on the crappy flash website, though. Here's the pdf schedule: http://i.cdn.turner.com/v5cache/TCM/...ysSchedule.pdf I like how it's almost a game--each film shares an actor with the film listed before it.

This Sunday it looks like I could be parked in front of the TV all day watching movies.

I love TCM's 31 Days of Oscar. For the past month I've been able to settle in and watch a classic Oscar-winner movie almost every night after dinner. Lots of movies I've always wanted to see but was too lazy to rent: Marty, On the Waterfront, Mrs. Miniver, Easy Rider, I haven't watched one bad film yet. And there are still so many other great movies I've yet to see.
