Thumbs up to all my enlightened cinephiles sticking up for my beloved masterpiece "Annie Hall"
over the empty, shallow, overrated spectacle that is "Star Wars"
I'll admit that the Academy has often favoured pretentious feel good movies over much smarter and more creative films simply because the latter were more violent or dark (i.e. "Dances with Wolves"
, "Shakespeare in Love"
over "Saving Private Ryan"
), but choosing "Annie Hall"
over "Star Wars"
was one of the times when they made the right decision by choosing the kinder, gentler, 'adult' flick over the one more popular with younger folks.
