MoVie Review Flashback: I Saw a Random Best Picture Winner Yesterday!

I love watching Best Pictures. I’m trying to see all of them, in fact. Yesterday while filing through television channels with my family we happened to stop on Showtime and playing was The Deer Hunter.

I think about forty minutes of the film had already started but it didn’t matter because the movie stopped us in our tracks. We could tell instantly that it was going to be a film worth watching but we didn’t know how great our intuition was going to be but we found out very soon.

The Deer Hunter is no walk in the park. It is a deeply emotional film that deals with the Vietnam War and its devastating impact on some of our finest Americans. In it stars Robert de Niro, Christopher Walken (Walken would win his only Oscar for ), and Meryl Streep who were all nominated for Oscars for this movie.

The Deer Hunter is a film that’s going to stick with you and yeah, it made me cry quite a bit actually. Watching this, I suddenly realized how much weaker a film like Da 5 Bloods actually is, which also is set in the Vietnam War. Yeah, Da 5 Bloods is a well-written movie but The Deer Hunter far exceeds it emotionally.

There aren’t a lot of Best Pictures that I have seen that deserve Best Picture but this one did. It’s a phenomenal movie.

I’ll give it 100 out of 100 and 5 out of 5 stars.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

What’s Your Favorite Best-Picture Winning Musical?

There have only been four Best-Picture winning musicals. A few years ago, La La Land almost became the fifth musical to receive such an honor but was left as a runner-up to the critically-acclaimed film, Moonlight. I’ve currently only seen two of these musicals (An American in Paris and The Sound of Music) but I am determined to one day watch them all.

For this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? I thought this would be a fun question to pop for you, my fellow movie lover. So, considering that I haven’t seen all of these movies I’m going to get straight to the point and not delve into detailing each film: which musical is your favorite?

For me, in comparing An American in Paris and The Sound of Music, The Sound of Music is undoubtedly my favorite. Don’t get me wrong, I love An American in Paris for its hummable score and lovely songs, but The Sound of Music touches my heart in a way that most movies can’t.

I can’t wait to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
