As my pal Jenny and I were playing Scrabble during the red carpet portion of this year’s Oscars, we agreed that there are so many Best Picture Oscar Winner films which we had never seen. I went on to beat Jenny in that game of Scrabble. It’s probably pretty irrelevant to what I am trying to say. I just wanted to brag.
Once the Oscars began and our dinner guests had gone home, I began thinking about how many classic and timeless films I have not taken the time to see. I realized that I am missing out on a very easy history lesson. And that will just not do. I’m ashamed that I have never seen the full 238 minutes of “Gone With The Wind”.
At work we’ve been investing a lot of time and effort into being “accountable”, and it’s something I have taken to adapting in my personal life as well. This is revelvant because I don’t think I can truly be accountable without making a list and actually making an effort to rectify this cultural faux paux.
Here is the list of 10 Best Picture Oscar Winner films that I would like to see before next year’s Oscars:
1977 – “Annie Hall”
1975 – “One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest”
1974 – “The Godfather Part II”
1972 – “The Godfather”
1953 – “From Here to Eternity”
1944 – “Going My Way”
1939 – “Gone with the Wind”
I will also state for the record that I will see the following movies sometime this year:
“The Social Network”
If I have any takers on a movie buddy, I’m taking applications.
