With a week to go until the 2013 Oscars are awarded, the big question on everybody's mind is, which movie will win Best Picture?
Argo? Not enough letters. Amour? What's with the one word movie titles this year? Lincoln? C'mon give us a title with some meat on the bones. Django Unchained? That one's got my vote.
Not because of the story, the acting or the brilliant writing. It's because, when made into an anagram, it comes out:
'Caged Ninja Hound'
Oh, you thought I was talking about the Academy Awards?
Sorry, this show is about the best AnagraMovies of the year. You know, that's where you mix the letters up in a movie title so that the result is (hopefully) hilarious, and, better yet, sets the tone of the movie on a totally wild tangent. Are they still caging ninja hounds? Well, here's one bad dog who will seek vengeance, and don't let any mutt stand in his way!
Who are the runners up for best AnagraMovies of 2012?
"Rather Dorky Zit" (Zero Dark Thirty)
"A Bloke Grins In Ivy Polls" (Silver Linings Playbook)
"Me Sells Rabies" (Les Miserables)
To name just a few. They're all strong contenders, but, of course, the winner will be announced on Feb. 24.
Hint: Two word titles (or more) have the best chance. It's all politics...
What's great about this game is that there's more than a hundred years of movies to goof on. Some past winners include "We Honed Twinight" (Gone With The Wind) "He Tarts It" (The Artist - last year's winner) and, of course, the greatest AnagraMovie of all time (on most lists) "Hog Heft Dater" (The Godfather.)
Can't wait another week? Try making your own AnagraMovies and leave them in the comments below. I'll try to make some of the funnier ones into posters and add them here.
Need a little help?
Here's an online anagram maker, in case you have to cheat. I mean, in case you might need a push in the right direction...

Good luck to all the contenders! Of course, it's an honor just to be nominated.
Or, is it?
