MedozKMedozK TennesseePosts: 8,294
With the Oscars and other award shows over for the year, I figured a movie based 'Weakest Link' would be a fun thing. Since we are here in this forum for a 90s based band, I decided we could choose the BEST FILM for all the BEST PICTURE WINNERS of the 1990s.

Here we continue with Round 2 to determine the BEST OSCAR WINNING BEST PICTURE OF THE 1990S.

You are going to pick the film that you think is the "Weakest Link" after 2 days I remove the two (2) movies with the most votes. We will then move on to Round 4.

    Braveheart
    Hard which one of the bottom 3 of the decade to vote for :pensive:

    Braveheart, Gump or Schindler? Going for the most self righteous. I did enjoy it when it came out and it has some good parts.
    It's a hopeless situation...

    Forrest Gump
    I picked Gump because I can’t stand that bastard...along with anyone who uses the tired “Run, Forrest, run!” trope.

    Also, fuck Jenny.

    It doesn't feel good to vote Schindler out but it has to happen at some time. Now is that time.

    The best/most realistic character in the film is Amon Goeth; that's a fucking problem.

    Scent of a Woman was such a better film than Unforgiven, definitely should have won the Oscar that year.

    Yah, that Hoo-Ah thing was something, wasn't it.  Scent was hilarious - unfortunately for them it was not a comedy.

    I love Braveheart too - not sure which one I love more. Both have stars that kinda turned out to be jerks, especially Braveheart, but I'm not a cancelling type.

    Lots of great movies got robbed in the 90's, but none more than Shawshank. That was a shiv in the shower loss.

    Lol. Come on now.

    The biggets snub of the 90s was Linda Hamilton not winning or being nominated for Terminator 2.

    I don't have any particular stake in baking Forest Gump as good or great movie- I like it, didn't love it- but I have yet to understand why some loath that movie so much.  What is it about that film that some of you dislike (or even hate) so much?  I'm not defending the film or looking for an argument, just curious.

    I don't hate it, but I thought it was silly.
    The story, some of the acting, the story, the story, the story - cheeseball stuff.  
    Also, it gave the world people trying to imitate Tom Hanks' diction, which is not a good thing.
    Soooo many bad imitation attempts.

    It was a bit groundbreaking in the video department...inserting Gump into video with Kennedy, etc.  Also some great Vietnam scenes.
