Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
This is another post in the Oscar Winners Edition of TMP. Today we tackle my favorite Best Director win!
#1 Bong Joon-ho for Parasite
This movie is brilliant. I know I’ve talked about it before. At length. Seeing Bong Joon Ho win made me really happy, he really deserved it!
#2 Peter Jackson for Lord of the Rings: Return of the King
There are not many movies that are completely timeless and just never get old. The LOTR series is one of them. It is just as stunning as it was back in the day when it first came out. I can’t believe that Peter Jackson only one and Oscar once when he deserved one for every single movie.
#3 Steven Spielberg for Saving Private Ryan
Steven Spielberg has been nominated as Best Director countless times, but according to Wikipedia he only one twice. Once for Schindler’s List and once for Saving Private Ryan. Both those movies are amazing but I think I like Saving Private Ryan just a tiny bit more!
Who’s your favorite Best Director winner? Let me know in the comments!
