GAME OF THRONES: SEASON TWO—Dany, Tyrion, and that know-nothing Jon Snow are back. Our colleague and resident GOT expert Rich says in the recent issue of City Arts that “Season Two takes more liberties with the second novel. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing because it keeps major characters from disappearing for episodes on end. (Don’t worry, nothing is game-changing). Just don’t get too attached to anyone.”  BLU  @  SALE

 

ARGO—Having won the Producers Guild and several other big awards, Ben Affleck’s film about a real-life CIA rescue operation posing as a sci-fi movie location scouting mission is now the current frontrunner to win Best Picture at Sunday’s Oscar awards.  BLU  @  SALE

 

ANNA KARENINA—Keira Knightley, Jude Law, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson star in the latest film adaptation of Tolstoy’s epic love story, written by Tom Stoppard and directed by Joe Wright (Atonement). It’s Oscar-nominated for Best Cinematography, Best Original Score, Best Production Design, and, of course, Best Costume Design.  BLU  SALE

 

UNDEFEATED—Last year’s Oscar winner for Best Documentary Feature is an inspiring journey following the dreams of three Memphis high school football players, their team, and their coach.   BLU
