Oscar Challenge

 
For the past few years I've been trying to catch up on the last one hundred years of film and watch as many of the best films that have ever been made as well as keeping up with new releases. In the hope of re-watching some of the best movies in history as well as seeing for the first time some classics which have passed me by, I thought I'd try and watch every Best Picture Oscar Winner. This is obviously going to take some time but when I'm done I'll have complied a complete list of all the Best Picture Winners and have a review of them linked below. Before embarking on this time consuming idea I'd already seen twenty-four of the eighty-four films and have reviewed a couple of them on this blog but I'm going to watch them all again to give myself a complete picture of the best cinema has to offer. Obviously the Academy Awards aren't always accurate in their choices for Best Picture and many of the best films ever made will be missing from the list. The eighty-four films are also hugely dominated by American cinema and feature very little in the way of comedy, science fiction or horror but nonetheless by the time I'm finished I'm certain my cinematic back catalogue will be much richer and I hope that you'll enjoy the reviews that I write.
