Best Of Netflix: Oscar Winners Past

As we prepare for another Academy Awards ceremony (and one in which a black-and-white silent movie might win Best Picture for the first time in decades), take a look back at some Oscar winners of yesteryear. We would like to thank the Academy‚ and Netflix for the instant streaming.

The Hobbit

The first trailer! Peter Jackson directs the story of Hobbit Bilbo Baggins, who journeys to the Lonely Mountain accompanied by a group of dwarves to reclaim a treasure taken from them by the dragon Smaug. The film’ s expected release is Christmas 2012.

The Three Musketeers

The hot-headed young D’Artagnan along with three former legendary but now down on their luck Musketeers must unite and defeat a beautiful double agent and her villainous employer from seizing the French throne and engulfing Europe in war.

What Movie Should I Watch This Weekend?

For this weekend’s viewing pleasure: a former Superman battles creatures of the night, the fifth (and final?) installment of the Fast/Furious franchise, and a wheelchair-bound dj with magic at his fingertips.
