Goody’s Movies To Watch Ahead Of Sunday’s Oscars

Like many of us in quarantine over the past year, lots of hours were logged on the couch watching Netflix, Hulu, and other streaming services.

It was a year unlike any other for filmmakers and the movie industry, but as they say in show business, the show must go on.

Thus, the Oscars this Sunday in Los Angeles will have a different feel compared to year’s past. Even with the pandemic going on for the last 12+ months, there were still plenty of entertaining films that were produced during a challenging time. 

For a preview and list of movies to watch before Sunday night, AZCentral/Gannett Chief Film and Media Critic Bill Goodykoontz joined the Brad Cesmat Show to give a rundown of what films caught his eye.
