Wallpaper Ideas for Movie Lovers

Posted February 25, 2008

I couldn't care less about the Oscars. 

I haven't been to the theater to see a movie since 2006, when I went to watch "A Prairie Home Companion" at the Rialto.  I have an aversion to new movies.  I almost always feel like I've wasted valuable time when I take a chance on a new movie.  They're so derivative.  I hate forecasting a movie correctly while I watch it. 


Enough about me.  Here's a neat site that displays posters of all the Best Picture Oscar winners since 1928. 

The movies used to be better -- and the posters used to be better.

    Trinity.... On your recommendation, I'll try to see "Blood." I'll let you know how it goes! ;)

    Brian, thanks for the movie poster tip! It's refreshing to see a young person who appreciates classic movies. I concur with your general assessment of modern films. I've been collecting 1940s films for ten years and now have about 2,000 of them to enjoy whenever I want.

    Brian Darling, there are good movies worth seeing... you just have to try to weed them out from all the fluff. I would recommend "There Will be Blood". I think it's just so well done and the script is awesome. I'm sorry you're last movie experience included Lindsay Lohan..Ewww.
