The Best Picture Countdown

For the past couple of years I've dedicated the period from the day of Oscar nominations through the day of the Oscar telecast to celebrating all things Oscar. This year will be no different, but I'd like to change things up a bit. This year I'd like to post reviews of all the past winners of Best Picture and since that is a massive undertaking for such a short time span, I'm asking for help!

I already have reviews for about half (give or take) of the Best Picture winners, but there are a bunch that, for whatever reason, I either haven't seen or haven't reviewed yet. If you have any interest in reviewing one or more of the following movies, please contact me and/or stake your claim in the comments and I'll email you with more details:

The Broadway Melody
Mutiny on the Bounty
The Great Ziegfeld
You Can't Take It With You
Mrs. Miniver
Going My Way
The Lost Weekend
Gentleman's Agreement
All The King's Men
The Greatest Show On Earth
From Here To Eternity
Around the World in 80 Days
Tom Jones
My Fair Lady
The Sound of Music
In The Heat of the Night
The Sting
The Deer Hunter
Kramer vs. Kramer
Ordinary People
Chariots of Fire
Terms of Endearment
The Last Emperor
Rain Man
Dances With Wolves
The Silence of the Lambs
Forrest Gump
The English Patient
Shakespeare In Love
A Beautiful Mind
Million Dollar Baby

Interesting venture. I have seen quite a few of the movies in that list, and certainly am interested in reviewing a few of those. Let me know the details.

I can do Silence of the Lambs and In the Heat of the Night, if that's okay.

Hi! Saw your plug on the LAMB, could I do the English Patient, or maybe Braveheart?

Robert said...

I too saw your plug! I would love to take Ordinary People.

Hey I would love to do "Greatest Show on Earth" as been looking for an excuse to write about that movie for ages.

Nice idea! I'll take Rebecca, if you don't mind.

Always willing to help out a fellow Canuck. I can do Million Dollar Baby
