My Personal Favorites

There are a lot of films that hold a special place in my heart that were never nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards.  My preferences tend toward science fiction and fantasy, though I can also enjoy a good comedy.  Unfortunately, the academy often overlooks these genres when they hand out awards.  They may get Oscars for technical achievements, but are rarely considered for the top prize.  So I though it would be a good idea to give them some recognition, if only because they are the movies that fire my imagination and tickle my funny bone.  I know I am not alone in my love for the movies listed on this page.  I know there are others out there, and YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!  Enjoy!
