Phil’s Top 5… Oscar Best Picture Winners

Phil’s Top 5… Oscar Best Picture Winners

Other Cr*p Top 5

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: to celebrate this years Academy Awards, I take a look at my favourite 5 Best Picture Winners.  No Crash is NOT included.

 

Close but no cigar: Braveheart, The Godfather, Platoon, The Deer Hunter, The French Connection, The Unforgiven

5 – The Silence Of The Lambs
It’s an amazing accomplishment which finishes on a high with some of the best fantasy action ever captured on film.  It’s infinitely rewatchable and even the multiple drawn out endings cant take away it’s enjoyment.

4 –  The Silence Of The Lambs
One of the best horror thrillers, it features a memorable protagonist and an excellent central performer by Foster.  So good is  The Silence Of The Lambs that numerous sub-par sequels have failed to take away from it’s lustre. (See also Hannibal on TV for Lecter done well)

3 –  Rocky
The definitive boxing movie and probably the definitive sports film, most people forget Rocky was a Best Picture Winner. So iconic it’s still referenced all these years later.

2 – Schindlers List
Spielberg finally recognised after years of snubs, Schindlers List is a heart wrenching true story directed with brutality and flair. It packs and emotional punch and hasn’t been dulled by age or familiarity.

1 – The Godfather Part 2
The second best Gangster film and one of a few films where the sequel out shines the original, The Godfather Part 2 is epic filmmaking at it’s height.  Who needs Brando.
