    I remember an article way back when with a survey of UK people and they ranked Braveheart as the worst Best Picture winner.

    Crash is surely the worst “Best Picture" winner that I can recall.

    Eyes Wide Shut wins it with 15 votes. Magnolia and The Matrix were in second place with 12 votes each. Eyes Wide Shut will move on to the bracket.

    Isn't Toy Story 2 the worst Toy Story?

    YEah I like American Beauty, I always thought yes the movie makes you sympathatic towards Spacey's character in the end, but that it was clear throughout the movie that he was engaging in bad and self destructive behavior. I think they went overboard in making his wife TOO "shrewish wife" character, and had they eased up on her a little bit it would have made it even more obvious he was being ridiculous. But they make you sympathize with her in the end too I thought.

    Definitely a lot of nostalgia for me attached to a lot of these movies as I'm looking at a list. The Mummy is up there for me. Fight Club was and still is great, don't let the weirdo fanbase ruin it. The amount of "Teen movies" taht came out that year seems insane. Varsity Blues, She's All That, Never Been Kissed, 10 Things I Hate About You, Cruel Intentions, etc etc etc.

    And as I look at the list I realize I've just seen a lottttttttttt of movies that came out in 1999 lol. Though It's definitely possible some of these came out in 1998 and just stayed on the box office list becuase I just noticed that Saving Private Ryan is on the box office list for 1999 even though it came out in 1998. Some aren't that good but I enjoy(ed) watching them anyway! Big Daddy, The Blair Witch Project, The World Is Not Enough, Wild Wild West, Analyze This(!), Sleepy Hollow, Patch Adams, Deep Blue Sea, Blue Streak, The Green Mile, Life, Stepmom, You've Got Mail, South Park, Any Given Sunday, A Bug's Life, October Sky, Lake Placid, Mighty Joe Young, Mystery Men, Dogma, Enemy of the State, Galaxy Quest, Stir of Echos, The Faculty(!), Man on the Moon, The Wood, Baby Geniuses (lol at that one), Bicentennial Man...just an insane amount of movies that I've seen! But looking at it written out like that I am almost certain not all of these came out in 1999, just listed on the box office list for it.

    Watched this last night because I had somehow never even heard of it until this post. Absolutely a new favorite of mine.

    If you have a Letterboxd, it is the best way to track films. That, or search Wikipedia for "19xx in film", which has them sorted by American release dates.
