  1. I never counted the number of Best Picture winners I saw and was shocked I was up over 50.

    I hadn't seen a lot of the Helen Mirren films you all cited, but was shocked you didn't do Excalibur. That's the first film that springs to mind when I think of her and was one of my favorites growing up. Mirren's Morgana is so fun, especially when she's playing off Merlin.

    Great show as always!

    1. Damn it, Pat, now we really want to see Excalibur!
