3. Name one movie you loved upon initial viewing but eventually grew to hate (or vice-versa).

I was initially bored with The Virgin Suicides, but after re-watching it, and reading the book, it grew to be one of my favorite movies. Plus, I’m in love with Kirsten Dunst and Josh Hartnett…so it works.

  1. Its almost a guarantee that when asked what movies should not have won Best Picture, people will answer Crash and Shakespeare In Love. And rightly so.

    Oh, and 80s teen movies definitely rules!!

  2. Great answers here, couldn’t agree more with your picks for four flicks that should not have won Best Picture.

    The Amazing Spider-Man sucked, didn’t it?

    1. With the year of 2011 movies in particular… Movies like Drive, Beginners and Shame deserved more (or any) recognition. I was ecstatic that Plummer won for best supporting actor!

      The Amazing Spider Man was pretty pointless to remake. Everything these days is a remake or reboot.
