31 Days of Oscar, Pt. 2

4 03 2008

Sad day! “31 Days of Oscar” is over, but I got to see a lot of great films.

Title: Das Boot
Starring: Jürgen Prochnow
Director: Wolfgang Petersen
Plot: A crew of sailors disillusioned with the German government is stationed on a submarine during the Battle of the Atlantic. Through close calls and vague orders, the unprepared crew learns how to survive the harsh World War II U-boat life. Das Boot was nominated for 6 Academy Awards. It is #64 on the IMDB Top 250 Movies

Title: 12 Angry Men
Starring: Henry Fonda, Lee J. Cobb, Jack Klugman and E.G. Marshall
Director: Sydney Lumet
Plot: In what seems like a clear cut case of murder, the jurors hash out their verdict after one dissenter disagrees with sending a young man to his death. 12 Angry Men was nominated for 3 Academy Awards. It is #13 on the IMDB Top 250 Movies.

So add these two to the list:
Rear Window – #14 on the IMDB Top 250 Movies
Psycho – #21 on the IMDB Top 250 Movies
Apocalypse Now – #35 on the IMDB Top 250 Movies
Raging Bull – #70 on the IMDB Top 250 Movies
Some Like It Hot – #82 on the IMDB Top 250 Movies
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington – #103 on the IMDB Top 250 Movies
Letters from Iwo Jima – #158 on the IMDB Top 250 Movies
Mr. Deeds Goes to Town
The Birds

…and I have three left on the DVR:
Lawrence of Arabia – #32 on the IMDB Top 250 Movies
The Bridge on the River Kwai – #62 on the IMDB Top 250 Movies
Unforgiven – #115 on the IMDB Top 250 Movies
