Cimarron (1931)

According to IMDb, Cimarron is the second lowest-rated Best Picture of all-time, collecting just a 5.9 rating with 5,486 votes. To be quite honest, these people were pretty generous since this has to be one of the worse winners ever.  Yancey Cravat (Richard Dix) is definitely one of the worse main characters I’ve ever seen … More Cimarron (1931)

Grand Hotel (1932)

Grand Hotel was the Best Picture winner for 1932, the fifth movie in history to win such an honour. Given that the date of this review is 2021, we are close to celebrating the 100th anniversary of the first award ceremony, which means I still have time to learn how the Academy used to think.  … More Grand Hotel (1932)

Cavalcade (1933)

Every time I sit down to watch a new Best Picture winner, I say to myself that the worse has to be over, right? Well, much to my surprise, there are still a handful of duds left, and Cavalcade is one of them.  This 1933 winner focuses on the lives of two families who suffer … More Cavalcade (1933)

Annie Hall (1977)

It may have taken the majority of my adult life, but I think I just found the new, worse movie I’ve ever seen. Annie Hall had to be the most uninteresting movie I’ve ever sat down to watch.  I’ve never been a fan of Woody Allen or his works, so I dreaded watching this movie … More Annie Hall (1977)

A Very Country Christmas: Homecoming (2020)

Sometimes you think the worse is over and then something else happens. That would be a great way to describe the third movie in this franchise, A Very Country Christmas Homecoming.  Zane (Greyston Holt) is still a country star, sort of. He’s not touring anymore although he’s very concerned with his public image on social … More A Very Country Christmas: Homecoming (2020)
