Typically, I spend the first six weeks or so of each new year playing catch-up with all the Oscar bait that was released around Christmas. But as it turns out this awards season didn’t produce as many true prestige pictures as expected, so starting next week we’ll be returning to new releases with a look at Steven Soderbergh’s acclaimed action flick “Haywire,” followed by a review of the Liam Neeson vs. wolves survival thriller “The Grey” (I’ll also briefly return to the 2011 awards contenders with a piece on “The Artist,” if it ever opens in the Lodi-Stockton area).

This week, though, we’re still squarely in Oscar mode with quick looks at two of 2011’s stronger efforts — one that is toiling in limited release but deserves to be seen by a wider audience, and one that has been on DVD/Blu-ray for a while but has been over-shadowed by other recent, more high-profile releases. Both are contenders for Academy Award nods in major categories, so keep an eye out for them when the nominations are announced Tuesday.
