Has anyone watched any of the films nominated for Best Picture?

The Oscar 2022 Nominations for Best Picture are:

Belfast
CODA
Don’t Look Up
Drive My Car
Dune
King Richard
Licorice Pizza
Nightmare Alley
The Power of the Dog
West Side Story

I’ve seen just one: CODA which I adored. I haven’t been to the movies since the start of the pandemic which rules out West Side Story, which I do really want to see. I’ve heard good things about The Power of the Dog but it sounds so grim–I’ll watch it at some point but I’m not quite up to it yet. I did watch half of Don’t Look Up but found it too jejune and thematically whacky to finish. As for the others on the list, other than King Richard, none of them really call to me. (They all, however, are probably a better watch than Amazon’s Reacher which I thought was lazily written, absurdly violent, and just plain dumb.)

How about you? Have you seen any of the movies nominated? If so, did you enjoy them? And is there a movie you wish had gotten a nod but didn’t?
