If it's crap ... We'll tell you
What do you guys feel are the best and worst best picture winners? This isn't a thread meant to say what's more or less deserving in its given year, by the way. Maybe you wanted something else to win, but complain somewhere else, this threads just for the films with the statues!
For me (of the ones I've seen):
2) The Godfather
3) The Apartment
4) On the Waterfront
5) The Lost Weekend
4) Forrest Gump
5) A Beautiful Mind
I think most can agree that the academy has made several dubious choices, but what do you guys find as the strongest or weakest best picture winners?
I don't have a full best or worst but 3 of the worst:
Dancing with Wolves, mainly because it shafted Good fellas and that it is such a forgetable movie, totally undeserving.
The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. Good movie, don't get me wrong but City of God came out the same year. Perhaps it is because City of God isn't an American movie and thus lands in a different category. 2003 was a really weak year for movies though. Meh, I dunno, I'll just leave this as it is.
Crash, when was the last time you saw that movie? What do you remember from it? Feels overrated.
3 of the best:
The Godfather is a given
The Departed is a favorite of mine, Ill put this in here too
Schindler's list was very moving
