Sound Off is a weekly theater-related discussion post here at Fandango where we talk about topical issues related to moviegoing.
Well, it's Oscar weekend, which means this week's discussion topic is about cats. Really cute cats. Like, completely irresistible cats.
Or we can talk about the Oscars. That might make more sense.
Many of you will probably use the next couple of days to catch up with some of those movies that are nominated for Oscars, be them Best Picture nominees or films from other categories (I highly recommend watching all of the nominated animated movies). So while we figure out whether we're seeing one Oscar-nominated movie or an entire marathon of Oscar-nominated movies (yes those do exist; check your local theaters to see if they're hosting one), let's spend some time this weekend discussing the one Oscar movie we most enjoyed watching on the big screen.
This doesn't necessarily mean it's your favorite of all the Oscar-nominated movies, mind you. We're just looking for the one that just wowed you or moved you or made you want to stand up and cheer when those final credits appeared on the big screen. Perhaps it was Life of Pi and its dazzling special effects, or Argo's nail-biting finale. Heck, maybe like me you were completely smitten with Wreck-It Ralph because you grew up obsessed with 8-bit video games.
That's what we're digging into this weekend. Before the Oscars roll around this Sunday night, pop into our comments section and let us know which one of these Oscar-nominated movies you enjoyed watching the most on the big screen. Sound off below!

I would say for me it was Life of PI, Django and Lincoln mostly. Great movies!! I also loved the AVENGERS by far my favorite movie of the year but it was not nominated. Pity. smile.
Clearly Lincoln deserved Best Picture.Again, because he is so brilliant, Spielberg overlooked. silver linings-great feel good movie but not in the same league!
Silver Linings Playbook! I went to see just to catch any possible naked shots of Bradley Cooper. I had no idea it was such a phenomenal, engrossing story! Truly stellar performances from all of the actors involved. Loved it!
Sorry I thought they meant ever. I would say Les Miserables . Seeing it in a theater with digital sound was great.
My favorite movie has always been The Godfather. I was able to see it in theaters when the 25th anniversary restored copy was shown for about a week.
love romances- romances are the best movies (aka- casablanca #1 of all time)
Amour- - heartwrenching reality
Argo-thrilling interesting part of little known American history- but not the best.
Zero Dark thirty- ditto with argo comment- and not as thrilling as bigelow's hurt locker.
Lincoln- love of country (and if you love history which you should- love it- must take your kids)-everyone should see- best director, best actor.
Life of Pi- why we go to the movies- magical- best something- but not sure what.
Silver Linings Playbook- my fav this year- when I walk out of a movie with a smile on my face- its the best- this one had all the elements- right length- great acting all around feel good ending. best picture
Les mis- doesn't belong here.
My favorite of the nominated movies has to be wreck it Ralph. It was the animated entertainment event of the year
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
