Welcome to the latest installment of Flickchart Road Trip, in which I’m starting in Los Angeles and “driving” across country, watching one movie from each state and posting about it once a week. The new movie I watch will go up against five movies from that state I’ve already seen, chosen from five distinct spots on my own Flickchart. Although I won’t tell you where the new movie actually lands in my chart (I don’t like to add new movies until I’ve had a month to think about them), I’ll let you know how it fared among the five I’ve chosen. Thanks for riding shotgun!

With Georgia, I hit my first state where I have family. (My grandmother on my mother’s side used to live in Texas, but that was many years ago.) My dad’s sister, her husband, my two female cousins, their husbands and their combined three daughters all live in Atlanta. I’ve only met one of the three daughters, who are my first cousins once removed, according to the interwebs. So I was looking forward to meeting some new family members in addition to a lot of catching up — I haven’t seen any of these folks since my wedding nearly five years ago.

With the Oscars recently wrapped up, it’s time to take a look at a movie that dominated the Academy Awards like few have before and few will again. This film was not only nominated for a record 14 Oscars (a feat that’s only been tied by the juggernaut that was Titanic). Under the guise of the New York stage, All About Eve – known by some as “the bitchiest movie ever made” – puts the backstage politics of show business on screen like no film had before.
