    So many great films snubbed (When Harry Met Sally, Crimes and Misdemeanors, Do The Right Thing, Glory).

    Of this list, I admire Dead Poets Society and Born on the Fourth of July….I think My Left Foot contains some great peformances and is a strong film, and I HATE Field of Dreams.

    Driving Miss Daisy deserved it in my opinion, somewhat by default.

    Honestly, the best film of this year was not even nominated: Do the Right Thing. But, of the ones listed, Born on the Fourth of July gets my vote.

    I could never understand why Born on the Forth of July or Driving Miss Daisy are considered more than adequate, Field of Dreams is a mediocre cheesefest at best, and I have unfortunately not seen Dead Poets Society, so I choose My Left Foot… I guess.

    Do The Right Thing was by far the best movie of the year, but i will go with Dead Poests Society since somebody was smart enough to snub Spike Lees masterpice.

    Field of Dreams just gets to me most emotionally, so I threw a vote for it, but I’m not sure which of these films could really represent how great a year 1989 was. I admire My Left Foot a lot, and Born on the Fourth of July has a lot to admire visually, so I suppose those could have made fair winners. Dead Poets Society and Driving Miss Daisy are wonderful films, but I just don’t feel right bequeathing such an immense honor onto them.

    1) Field of Dreams
    2) My Left Foot
    3) Born on the Fourth of July
    4) Dead Poets Society
    5) Driving Miss Daisy

    There really is no other choice than Do the Right Thing.
