Sometimes It's the Best??? Picture


Look back over the Best Picture Awards and you are sure to find some years when you wonder what people were smoking.
  • 1956: Was Around the World in 80 Days really a better film than The King and I?
  • 1961: Was West Side Story really a better film than Judgment at Nuremberg?
  • 1968: Was Oliver! really a better film than The Lion in Winter?
  • 1979: Was Kramer vs. Kramer really a better film than Being There?
  • 1996: Was The English Patient really a better film than Fargo?
  • 1997: Was Titanic really a better film than L.A. Confidential?
  • 2002: Was Chicago really a better film than The Pianist?
  • 2012: Was Argo really a better film than Life of Pi?

I had the pleasure of attending a Tom Green comedy show last year, and he has made a couple of Hollywood movies that had limited success. He challenged the audience to shout out some lines from his movies though, and quite a few people were able to do it, myself included.

He then said... can anyone name a line from the Best Picture film the English Patient? *crickets.

I had a good laugh. - Bobbo

Bobbo,

He made a great point about The English Patient.

One of the most over-rated films of all time.
