What film should not have won best picture?

Jun 26, 2012 | Posted by: Burento | Full story: www.metacritic.com

Some Oscar-winning films hold up better than others. With this year's Academy Awards ceremony approaching, we asked Metacritic contributor Nick Hyman to take a look back at the past two decades of best picture winners and select the 10 films least deserving of that award -- movies that either seem less impressive now that additional time has passed, or that should never have won in the first place, given the alternatives available. Take a look at his selections, and let us know what you think.p>

My wife and I walked out on Titanic, agreeing that it was an overlong, overblown piece of crap. The author of this Topix piece is correct in pointing out Cameron's abysmal writing.

I also thought that James Cameron's The Avatar was a cartoon version of a 1950's grade Z sci-fi movie, except that The Avatar was dumb enough to take itself seriously.
