  1. After looking at the last Best Pictures since 2001, doesn’t seem to me like many of those films will stand the test of time as an Academy Classic, outside of “The Lord of the Rings: Trilogy” and perhaps A Beautiful Mind, 12 Years a Slave or maybe The King’s Speech (IMHO).

  2. 12 Years a Slave is still just as powerful as it was a couple of years ago. Defiantly a masterpiece. No Country for Old Men is right behind it.

  3. From an overall cinematic achievement standpoint, Return of the King. For sheer old-fashioned movie quality, No Country For Old Men.

  4. Lord of the Rings is winning this? Blimey. I think that film is a shamozzle, so I’m clearly out of step.

    Birdman gets it for me, by a whisker – The Departed, Slumdog and The Hurt Locker are all in the same quality ballpark.
