Oscar's Best Picture

Being a film buff and a wannabe critic, I love exploring different kinds of movies. One of my to-do list is to watch & review all the winners (and non-winners if I have more time. I wish. Sigh.) of the Academy Awards for Best Picture. Hoping that this list will grow bigger soon. :)

Listed BY YEAR (Recent to Oldest). Click movie titles for my full reviews. If a year/movie is missing, I haven't seen it yet. Titles with no links means I need to re-watch them to give a fair rating/review. :)
