    I couldn’t agree more with Gene & Roger about Do the Right Thing and Roger & Me, and when they say “20 years from now, what movies will people be talking about?” they hit the nail on the head. THIRTY years later, DTRT and R&M are often-watched classics while most of the movies nominated for awards are long forgotten. Driving Miss Daisy was a well-made movie, beyond question, but it did not deserve all the accolades it got. It was safe, and how often has the Academy been accused of taking chances?
