1930s & '40s Best Picture nominees:

  1. :check: The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) :4stars: Didn't think i'd like this one after the first few minutes, ended up loving it.
  2. :check: Broadway Melody of 1936 (1935) :2.5stars: Some fun scenes, but not my cup of tea.
  3. :check: The Informer (1935) :4stars: Great story, full of suspense and paranoia.
  4. :check: David Copperfield (1935) :3stars: Strong start with Freddie Bartholomew as young David, lost a lot after changing to Frank Lawton as the older version.
  5. :check: Stage Door (1937) :3stars: Pretty good, but the characters were a bit too one-dimensional.
  6. :check: Alexander's Ragtime Band (1938) :3.5stars: A decent mix of humor and seriousness, but nothing special to me.
  7. :check: Pygmalion (1938) :4stars: Having seen My Fair Lady, I was curious about how much I'd enjoy this. I think it's the better of the two.
  8. :check: The Citadel (1938) :3stars: Started pretty strong, but turned predictable and ended weak.
  9. :check: Four Daughters (1938) :3.5stars: Great characters, very basic, predictable story.
  10. :check: Goodbye Mr. Chips (1939) :4.5stars: Wow. I'm always pleasantly surprised when an older film is still this moving
  11. :empty: Our Town (1940)
  12. :check: Kitty Foyle (1940) :3.5stars: Great performance from Rogers elevates an okay film.
  13. :check: All This and Heaven Too (1940) :4stars: Great performances in a simple, but emotional story.
  14. :check: One Foot in Heaven (1941) :3.5stars: A bit cheesy, but definitely a "feel good" film.
  15. :check: The Little Foxes (1941) :4stars: Excellent performances throughout.
  16. :check: Blossoms in the Dust (1941) :3stars: See below.
  17. :check: Madame Curie (1943) :3stars: Interesting subject, boring story.
  18. :check: The Human Comedy (1943) :2.5stars: Definitely a product of it's time, way too hokey now.
  19. :check: Wilson (1944) :3stars: Pretty comprehensive biography, but rather flat.
  20. :check: The Yearling (1946) :4stars: Pulled me in a lot more than I expected.

19/20
