Oscar's Top Ten

February 26, 2007

I'm not going to comment on last night's Oscars. Kinda dull, no real surprises, what is there to say?

Over at Rotten Tomatoes, however they're listing all the Best Picture Oscar winners ever from top to bottom according to how the critics rated them. Here are the top ten:

1. The Godfather
2. On The Waterfront3. All About Eve
4. Sunrise (A bit of a cheat since it won a special best picture Oscar in the first ceremony, while Wings won the regular Best Picture Oscar.)
5. Rebecca
6. Marty
7. The Best Years Of Our Lives
8. Lawrence Of Arabia
9. The Godfather II
10. Casablanca

I thought I'd make my own top ten list, but going over the winners, I realized how few of them I truly love. Nevertheless, here's my list.

1. Annie Hall
2. The Godfather3. It Happened One Night
4. Sunrise (I'm cheating, too)
5. Casablanca
6. The Sting
7. Rocky
8. The Godfather II

For the last two, it's some mix of The Lost Weekend, Grand Hotel, The Best Years Of Our Lives, All About Eve, The Apartment, Kramer Vs. Kramer and Schindler's List.

How did Kramer vs Kramer make your list. Fine film sure but bit of a dated issue pic isn't it?

At least it's a pretty good film. A lot of the choices weren't that good.

I was about to comment on Godfather 3 being on the list until I figured it out. Too bad- that would have been a very satisfying rant.
