My 10 Favorite Best Picture Winners of the Last 25 Years

(Listen to the show on iTunes or Flicksation.com and Like us on Facebook)

In the last few months, I filled all the gaps in my viewings of the Oscar Best Picture Winners of the Last 25 Years. I enjoyed some and endured more. With Oscar, everything is 3 hours long. Below is a simple list of My 10 Favorite Best Picture Winners of the Last 25 Years. 

In making the list, I was actually surprised to remember there were a handful of times the Academy did indeed award Masterpiece level stuff. (Four times to be exact) I was also reminded of a lot of films I saw in theater, couldn’t stand and did not revisit for this list. Will I ever give Million Dollar Baby a second chance? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. 

I haven’t seen Titanic since I was 12 and many of these got a single theatrical view. Thus, this list is 100% Scientifically Accurate and much based on hazy memories.
