Re: Movies Seen in 2012


49. Cabaret (C+)

This movie holds the record for most Oscar wins for a film that didn't win Best Picture (8) - in fact, it considerably outperformed The Godfather, the film that won that year. And while a lot of people would now give the latter film more of the total Oscar haul, Cabaret's reputation has held up over the years. Unforunately, I just didn't like it that much. A big part of that is Michael York, who is just so, so boring. Liza Minnelli is very strong as the lead, but I just had a hard time caring about anybody.
