“That’ll be $34.18,” the cashier beamed at me, bagging my 3 tubs of yogurt, 2 quarts of strawberries, a dozen eggs and a container of baby spinach. I jolted to attention. There’s no way this can cost $34.18. I looked at the itemized bill, and sure enough the strawberries — on sale, 2 Qt. for […]

Their closest to sure box office bets, aside from low-budget horror fare, now appear to be projects with pre-sold themes and subjects that are often based on celebrities — the indie world’s version […]

The Academy Awards voters have spoken. Now, it’s your time to act. Fans hoping to get a good feel for the Oscar field before Hollywood’s big night on Feb. 24 can get a jump on things without leaving the house. While some front-runners — including “A Star Is Born” and “The Favourite” — are in the midst of their theatrical runs, a few nominated films are available to rent or stream right now. [related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”curated” curated_ids=”5826869,5827259,5827207″] Here are 11 you can check out right now: “Roma” Director Alfonso Cuarón’s black-and-white drama, about a young domestic worker in early 1970s Mexico, earned 10 nominations, including best picture, director, actress (Yalitza Aparicio), supporting actress (Marina de Tavira), cinematography and best foreign film. It also made history, becoming the first film from Netflix to be nominated for the top prize. How to watch: Available on Netflix. Critics, many of whom have put “Roma” on their year’s best films lists, also have said it’s worth viewing on the big screen. It’s showing at the following Bay Area theaters: Landmark’s Shattuck Theatre in Berkeley, the Parkway Theatre in Oakland, Three Below Theaters and Lounge in San Jose, and San Francisco’s Embarcadero Cinema. “Black Panther” Wakanda forever! Deftly directed by Oakland’s Ryan Coogler, “Black Panther” is the first superhero movie to be nominated for best picture. (Take that, Batman and Spidey!). Chadwick Boseman stars as the title character. Judging from its eye-popping box-office totals, you’ve likely seen it already, but why not give it another go? How to watch: Stream it on Netflix; rent it on iTunes, Amazon, Vudu, Google Play and YouTube. “BlacKkKlansman” Spike Lee directed this fact-based film about a black Colorado Springs police officer (John David Washington) who joins forces with a white cop (Adam Driver) to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan in the 1970s. It scored six nominations, including best picture, director and supporting actor (Driver). How to watch: Available to rent on iTunes, Amazon, YouTube, Google Play, and Vudu. “Bohemian Rhapsody” Rami Malek transforms himself to play Freddie Mercury in this electrifying tale about the British band Queen. Although it plays like a paint-by-numbers, VH1 “Behind the Music” documentary, chances are that it will, it will, rock you. The film captured five nominations, including best picture and actor (Malek). How to watch: Buy it on iTunes, Amazon, Vudu and Google Play. The film also can be seen in a number of Bay Area theaters. “A Star Is Born” Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga teamed up on this musical drama blockbuster. It’s the fourth take on the tragic show-biz love story — and arguably the best. The film earned eight nominations, including best picture, actor (Cooper), actress (Lady Gaga), supporting actor (Sam Elliott), cinematography and original song. How to watch: Buy it on iTunes, Vudu, Google Play and YouTube. The film also can be seen in a number of Bay Area theaters. “The Wife” An adaptation of Meg Wolitzer’s novel about a long and stormy marriage between a world-famous novelist and his spouse garnered a best-actress nomination for Glenn Close. It was the seventh Oscar nod for Close, 71, who has never won. This might be her best chance; she won the Golden Globe earlier this month. How to watch: Buy it on iTunes. The film also is showing at Three Below Theaters and Lounge in San Jose through Jan. 31. “Incredibles 2” The sequel to the Disney-Pixar 2004 tale about a family of superheroes was, as expected, nominated for best animated film. But for one of the few times in Pixar’s history, the Emeryville studio won’t go into Oscar night as the favorite. “Incredibles 2” lost out at the Golden Globes to “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.” How to watch: Rent it on iTunes, Amazon, Vudu, Google Play and YouTube. “Isle of Dogs” Wes Anderson’s stop-motion tale about a boy looking for his lost dog on a Japanese island full of abandoned canines joins “Incredibles 2” in the best animated film race. It also picked up a nod for best original score. How to watch: Available to stream on HBO Go, and to rent on Amazon. “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” The Coen brothers delivered this goofy, six-part anthology film about the American frontier. It earned three nods including best original song (“When a Cowboy Trades His Spurs for Wings”), best costume design, and best adapted screenplay. How to watch: A Netflix original, it is available to stream now. “RBG” The fascinating story of Supreme Court Justice — and feminist hero — Ruth Bader Ginsburg was honored with a best feature documentary nod and could be considered the front-runner in the category. How to watch: Available to stream on Amazon and Hulu. “Minding the Gap” Bing Liu’s captivating coming-of-age story about friends with a passion for skateboarding was also nominated for best feature documentary. How to watch: It is available to stream on Hulu. The film will also make its television debut on PBS at 9 p.m., Feb. 18.
