Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five. This time out: Worst Best Picture Oscar Winners
Close but no cigar: Argo, Forrest Gump, The King’s Speech, Gladiator
5 – Titanic (1997)
Titanic is okay. It’s long for sure, the effects have aged badly and it’s badly scripted. But it still holds a charm. Just not the kinda charm that beats L.A. Confidential, The Full Monty or Good Will Hunting
4 – The Artist (2011)
The Artist is fine. But 7 years after it won the Best Picture Oscar few remember the film. Least me.
3 – Dances With Wolves (1990)
This beat Goodfellas. I need say no more.
2 – Driving Miss Daisy (1989)
It’s not that Driving Miss Daisy is bad its just not an Academy Award winning film. It also beat the far superior Dead Poets Society
1 – The English Patient (1996)
I hated The English Patient. It was long, boring and overly worthy. Years later I remember hardly a frame about it other than falling asleep numerous times.
