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....

million dollar baby got my vote
Casablanca is my favorite...
Lord of the Rings!
Martin Scorsese’s The Departed is my favorite movie which included excellent actors, Matt Damon, Leonardo Dicaprio, Jack Nicholson, Mark Walberg, Alec Baldwin and Vera Farmigia. This movie was filled with drama, action, mystery, adventure and suspense. It provided wonderful storytelling and made you keep watching the movie over and over again. I loved it!
