Here’s my schedule for the 31st Miami International Film Festival, which kicks off on Friday, March 7th and ends on Sunday, March 16th. I have 12 movies to see over the course of the festival’s nine-day stretch and I’m hoping to review each one of them. Last year I had 11 but could only cover three due to interfering priorities; none of that will happen this time around as I’m completely free.

Every single person, publication, blog, site and whoever/whatever in the world has been posting their Oscar “predictions;” so, rather than feed you guys another iteration of that, I’ve decided to compile my own nominations—with some changes.

The old saying goes, ‘You don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone,’ or in the case of Paul W.S. Anderson’s half-baked, volcanic actioner, Pompeii, you don’t know how well something worked until a wholly unimpressive version of it rears its ugly head. Areas of the three films Pompeii rips shine brighter when posited against it: the alarming sense of dread and menace permeating every frame of Dante’s Peak, another disaster flick where a town-city is threatened by a local volcano; the finely-tuned romantics of Titanic, another tragedy where a lower class man and higher class woman’s forbidden love is doomed by an unforeseen force; and the expertly crafted revenges of Gladiator, another drama where a slave-turned-gladiator comes face-to-face with the persons that slaughtered his family.
