With Argo seeming to sweep all the awards lately, and with eight other potential winners competing against Ben Affleck's drama in hot pursuit of Oscar gold, what better time for Warner Bros. to release a 20-movie set of their Best Picture winners? The release doesn't just dovetail nicely with awards season; it's also part of the studio's 90th anniversary celebration, which will include more 20-movie sets (one with musicals is next), a 50-movie set on Blu-ray and a monster 100-movie set on DVD throughout 2013. (For more, go to BestofWB.com and #bestofwb on Twitter.) Watch the trailer below....

many good movies there, ben hur, the departed, etc but I'll have to go with The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.
Amedeus, one of my top 10! :)
The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King is my favorite
Around the World in 80 Days
chariots of fire, driving miss daisy, ect
Driving Miss Daisy
I would have to say that Amadeus is a fav. I was Salieri in the stage version back in grad school. What an amazing script. Salieri's arc is incredible, and he has more lines than Hamlet!
Chariots of Fire - still remember the running on the beach, so beautiful!
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
lord of the rings!
The Departed. Scorsese's awesome!
An American in Paris
My favorite is Casablanca
I'm an old film buff ( Around the Wold in 80 Days was one of my favorites )
Box full of great movies..... One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest one of my favorites
The box set looks sweet!
An American in Paris is a CLASSIC! "Civilization has a natural resistance to improving itself."
Casablamca, Ben hir and Gigi! Love love love those movies! Would be so thrilled to have this fabulous and treasured collection!
There are people who aren't saying Casablanca? C'mon, that movie is pure gold from Bogart and Bergman to Lorre and Greenstreet.
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
