    Reading it now, there's a list of poor films that inexplicably won, starting with Crash, possibly Academy's all time low.

    The only one of these I saw that I didn't find utterly terrible was Spotlight.

    However, I haven't seen Million Dollar Baby, Argo or the most recent four so there's a faint possibility that there might be something to enjoy within those.

    That was hard. I only really liked The Kings Speech out of these.

    "LOTR" is the only one of those I genuinely like.

    Some are good but just not faves.

    And some are terrible - "Million Dollar Baby", I'm looking at you! :wtf:

    What a crappy list of films. I could only choose Return of the King, The Departed and No Country for Old Men before giving up.

    The only one of these I've seen is The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, so that's what I picked.

    It was okay, but I prefer the books lol.
