This week’s Oscars was a celebration of the past year’s best films. Not sure about you, but it made me excited about the state of movies today and not only the talented actors, but directors, editors, composers, writers, etc. It’s kind of mind-blowing to think about the effort and talent that goes into one film.
Did you miss anything from the show? Check out a Twitter recap of the big night (and the Literally, Darling nod!) on Huff Post Women.
Now that we’re on a movie high this week, it’s time to hit the theaters and check out Hollywood’s latest creations.
For the Wes Anderson worshiper: “The Grand Budapest Hotel”
Wes Anderson’s films are nothing if not opulent and endearing. It’s no surprise that Anderson’s latest creation, “The Grand Budapest Hotel” stars his regular cast of characters including Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Owen Wilson and Jason Schwartzman. In fact, GBH looks like the guest list for one of Hollywood’s most elite soirées. Our thoughts on the film’s potential? Mindy Kaling said (err, tweeted) it best:

Release Date: March 7
For the ‘inappropriate laugher’: “Bad Words”
Jason Bateman makes his directorial debut in what looks like a hilarious story of a 40-something man kicking ass and taking names at middle school spelling bees. How do you spell ‘cinematic success?’ C-I-N-E-M-A-T-I-C-S-U-C-C-E-S-S. “That’s coooorect.” Cue the mic drop, Mr. Bateman.
Release Date: March 14
For the thrill-seeker: “Divergent”
Based on the best-selling book series, “Divergent” is set in a futuristic dystopia where people are divided into distinct factions based on human virtues. Tris (Shailene Woodley) finds she is one of the few categorized as Divergent and must join the other societal outcasts to find out why they’re a threat to the system. If you’re into series like “The Hunger Games” this looks like a must-see.
Release Date: March 21
