IMO, Titanic definitely should be on the list. Yeah, it was rewarded from bringing in a load of money and throwing loads on the screen, but unbelievably cringe-worthy dialogue, like Attack of the Clones level bad.
I think The English Patient was a good movie, but Fargo deserved it that year. Driving Miss Fu*king Daisy is still the worst best picture winner for me, but that's probably for mostly personal reasons.
My "favorite" line from the prequels is when Anakin says, "From my point of view, the Jedi are evil!" Really? Evil people say "From my point of view"? And since I'm in the mood to discuss bad movie dialogue, here's an infamous one from the Ben Affleck classic Pearl Harbor after the Pearl Harbor attack: "I think World War II just started!".Haterz. "Hold me like you did by the lake on nabu" is clearly the best line in the history of film making.

God, how old was I when that stupid Pearl Harbor movie came out? 12? And I remember being gobsmacked about that line. Yeah, it ain't a world war 'till the 'Mericans are in it!
My favorite line from the prequels was the utterly hilarious NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! at the end of III. I just couldn't stop laughing. I got some glares from several other people in the theater but that was the funniest shit ever. They brought back James Earl Jones for that??
I maintain that Titanic's dialogue was not as bad as Attack of the Clones. There is no dialogue as bad as AOTC. Not in an A-level film at least.
I haven't actually seen that one, haha.
LOL I'm a major Star Wars uber and LOVE the prequels but still think the dialogues were so incredibly dumb it's hilarious!!
Some of my favorites:
I: "Wizaaaard!" It baffles me how George Lucas came up with this.
II: “From the moment I met you, all those years ago, not a day has gone by when I haven’t thought of you. And now that I’m with you again… I’m in agony. The closer I get to you, the worse it gets. The thought of not being with you—I can’t breathe. I’m haunted by the kiss that you should never have given me. My heart is beating, hoping that kiss will not become a scar. You are in my very soul, tormenting me… what can I do? I will do anything you ask.” Barf.
III: "From my point of view, Jedis are evil." That's like adding IMHO on FSU.
On topic, I also love Titanic and don't think it should be on the list. IT was such a movie experience audiences from all generations could appreciate.

Finally saw The Kids Are All Right. Mark Ruffalo and Julianne Moore were both great. Annette Bening was very good, but her performance wasn't quite as lead-y as Moore's.
Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the universe.
To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.
I'd never seen Faith Hill's dress made entirely of cotton candy, but geez...
Chicago's on. How was Renee every such a darling of the Academy? She's wonderful in Bridget Jone's but in everything else she's so insufferable/irritating...
I like her. And in this particular case, Roxie isn't exactly supposed to be the kind of heroine you warm to.

But is she supposed to be irritating? I mean, Velma's in many ways a much worse person but the way Catherine plays her you just love her.
