The votes are in.
Last week, with TWO free passes to any ODEON cinema during awards season on offer, we asked you to name the worst Best Film Oscar winner.
You answered in your tens.
Con Kennedy: ‘Birdman (2014). Jesus! Sad retired batman!I gave up on it!’
Daisy Chainsaw: ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003). 87 hours of my life I’m never getting back. The bird couldn’t have dropped the ring into the volcano during the first film?’
Fluffybiscuits: ‘In 1984 Amadeus beat The Killing Fields . A movie about a rival composers with ham-fisted and camp acting beat a movie that laid bare the torment of the victims of the Khmer Rouge. The latter film made me cry at 19 years of age and again as I saw it years later.’
Axelf: ‘Has to be Shiteanic. dear god its so bad i was cheering for the iceberg.’
Jeremy Kyle: ‘Has to be Crash (2004). Sandra Bullock plays a racist, but then she falls down the stairs and stops being a racist.
The Old Boy: ‘How Green Was My Valley (1941) – Hokey, maudlin, cloyingly sentimental and containing some of the most atrocious Welsh accents ever committed to celluloid, not to mention the fact that it beat The Maltese Falcon and, er, Citizen Kane.’
class wario: ‘Green Book (2018). A story full of potential reduced down to a tonally all over the place, often totally saccharine, piece of totally harmless cinema. The whole thing feels like a reskinned buddy cop film at times. The two main characters do what they can with what they’re given and it’s hard not to enjoy it on some level but so much wasted potential. It’s not a great sign when the superhero movie nominated the same year takes a more complex look at racial politics in the US!’
Last week: The Envelope Please
