Last night my husband & I were invited to an evening of Glitz & Glamour to celebrate Oscar Buzz.

The cinematography was something that really needs to be noted. You felt like you were traveling with them, & it all felt so real. You were completely immersed in the action & stress.ย  The attention to detail was completely unreal, & produces a film filled with nail-biting scenes that literally causes you to gasp in terror & jump out of your seat (yes, I did both).

Husband & I drove home in silence as we processed what we had just watched, & I couldn’t stop a few tears escaping down my cheeks. I don’t think we truly appreciate what our families went through, & movies like this are so important – especially when they are based on accounts of a soldier.

After seeing this film, I have to say that it is in my Top 3 movies ever watched, & I highly recommend you book your seats for it straight away!

Experience Oscarยฎ Buzz movies with no interruptions

AND THE NOMINEES AREโ€ฆ

All the sparkle, all the nail-biting dramaโ€ฆ itโ€™s time once again to try your hand at predicting the 2020 Academy Award winners and rev up some Oscarยฎ Buzz! Ster-Kinekorโ€™s annual Oscarยฎ Buzz kicked off with a red-carpet screening on 16 January 2020, featuring the heart-pounding, Golden Globe winning war filmย 1917, directed, co-written and produced by Sam Mendes (watch the trailerย here).

This is just one of the phenomenal Oscar-nominated films coming to Ster-Kinekor screens this week, along with finalist for Best Foreign Film,ย Les Miserables. Also look out for Renee Zellwegerโ€™s star turn in the recently releasedย Judy, which has earned her a well-deserved shot at Best Actress.

1917, Jojo Rabbit, Ford vs. Ferrari, Little Women, Joker, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Parasite and The Irishmanย are all vying for the top honour of Best Film.

Oscar-nominated films are the crรจme de la crรจme of film-making. Depending what a film is up for, itโ€™s been directed by one of the worldโ€™s greatest directors, its cinematography is breath-taking, and its score a sound experience. A movie of this calibre should be appreciated uninterrupted on the big screen, with the first-class sound and picture that accompanies this โ€“ not watched at home where it can be constantly disrupted.

So, experience Oscarยฎ Buzz films as they were made to be seenย โ€“ at the cinema.ย Book atย www.sterkinekor.com, download the SK App on your smartphone or book at the box office.ย  For news and updates, go toย Facebookย | follow Ster-Kinekor onย Twitter. For all queries, call Ticket-lineย on 0861 Movies (668 437).
