In 2013, I was a contributor to Mic.com (now "Hype") in the Arts and Entertainment section. The premise was simple: Would the average movie fan today appreciate the Best Picture winners of the past? And not just the 90s. We're talking 1927-silent-movie past. My goal as someone whose favorite movie is Back to the Future II was to be relatable on topics usually reserved for film students and movie buffs.
Note: Since a site overhaul in 2016, all the images in these articles were lost. But the writing remains, and that's what matters.
