Worst Best Picture Oscar Winners Ever!

The Academy Awards will be handed out Sunday night, and it seems a lot of folks are betting on The Hurt Locker to win. That could very well be. I really have no opinion, because I've only seen on of the nominated pictures (and it wasn't even Avatar).  But I can tell you which were the three worst pictures to win that coveted Best Picture Oscar trophy. At least in my opinion. #3: The English Patient (1996). I tried watching this movie on DVD, and while it has some beautiful cinematography, it is BORING. In case you missed this movie, it stars Juliette Binoche as a nurse taking care of a critically burned man in an abandoned monastery. As I recall it had a bunch of soap opera type stuff about affairs...and..what am I saying? I fast forwarded through a bunch of it and then followed what the little sticker said, "be kind, rewind." #2 Out of Africa (1985)This is another scenery plus boring dialog soap opera movie. I went to this in the theatre and could not wait to leave. It tells the story of author Isak Dineson. And while I have nothing against authors, I have a lot against this movie. It did star two great actors--Meryl Streep and Robert Redford, but even they could not help this thing. I also remember that Redford got paid $6 million dollars for this movie and he was hardly even in it, and Streep got $1 million and was in every scene and had to do an accent. I guess I can hate this movie on the grounds of equal rights for women (even overpaid actors). #1 Chariots of Fire (1981). This is my all time most hated Best Oscar Winning Movie of All Time. I hate hate hate this movie. First of all, there are no chariots. There is also no fire. FALSE ADVERTISING!  The big excitement is a bunch of guys running on a beach with that Vangelis song playing in the background. Then there's a bunch of talking in English accents. I went to this movie with my friend Karla, and she also hated it. (So if that's not evidence I don't know what is!) All you ever have to see of Chariots of Fire: CONCLUSION: When a movie is all about pretty scenery and stunning cinematography, it is not a movie. It is a window. If you like that you should travel and experience it...maybe send some postcards to your friends (or better yet, SLIDES!). If you want to make a movie, please have a story in mind first. Thank you.
