Top Ten Oscar-Nominated Films That Suck

All this Hurt Locker/ Oscar talk has inspired me to create a list.

Feel free to dispute this list or add a film of your own

MK's List of Oscar-Nominated Films That Suck:

  1. Hustle & Flow - "It's Hard Out Here For A Pimp" - Really? This won best song.
  2. The Cider House Rules - Tyler Durden says Rule #1 - There is no cider house.
  3. The English Patient -  My husband almost gouged his own eyes out with a Sour Patch Kid.
  4. Brokeback Mountain - I don't care about their sexual preference. The storyline sucked. Period.
  5. Shakespeare In Love - Twirling out of an Ace bandage? No thanks.
  6. The Hurt Locker - I like the lead guy when he played the same soldier role...IN 28 WEEKS LATER!
  7. Lost In Translation - I am lost! Why Bill? Why? 
  8. The Thin Red Line - The Long Boring Movie.
  9. In The Bedroom - That's where I went after watching bed, under the sheets, and tucked in a fetal position.
  10. Gangs of New York - Wow, never realized the gangs and Michael Jackson shared the same fashion sense. I was sure "Beat It" would play during a fight scene. I'm still waiting...   


  1. haha, you know how i feel about shakespeare in love, and i loved hurt locker! enjoyed cider house rules.
    for the rest of the list i agree lol
    was in the bedroom the one with marisa tomei? boring movie!
    thin red line, boring
    lost in translation, a mess (and i am madly in love with bill murray)
    some movies will always be a mystery as to how they end up on the oscars list!

  2. Oh Stacee - I love that you enjoy different movies. That way I can ask you what appealed to you about them. I am always curious! Different strokes for different folks, i wouldn't have it any other way.

  3. I'm so excited you have this blog. I love all different movies for so many reasons, and I love someone who can have different viewpoints and not have a problem sharing them :D
    We should be the next Siskel and Ebert lol (or is it scott and phillips now?)
