My Favorite Movie Of Each Year I’ve Been Alive

I saw a post on Patton Oswalt’s Facebook about this. His was a joke, but I decided to do mine. I am taking time at lunch when I should be reading to compile the list, thus falling further behind in my reading goal. Also – I am just googling movies of each year. I might miss something.

    You started with 1969. Sigh. That’s the year I graduated from high school.

    I just checked 2005… it contributed four movies to my 100 worst list and 37 to my thousand best. (Out of 279 seen.) Running through the best list, though, very few American wide-release theatrical movies. And a number of THOSE weren’t American (A History of Violence was Canadian, Unleashed was French, The Descent and Curse of the Were-Rabbit were British). Great year for documentaries, though, with Grizzly Man and Little Man. And maybe a few with names that didn’t end in “Man”.

    Just eyeballing it, but it looks like Japan kicked everyone else’s butts in 2005. Booth, Three…Extremes, Voice (or wait, maybe that’s Korea), Haze, White Panic, The Maid, Rampo Noir (to this day the best anthology film I’ve ever seen), and of course Eli Eli was on my list. There is nothing else like that movie on the planet.

    93 WAS a tough one, and Menace (#59 on my all time best list) just edged out Tombstone (#68).

      I did a very surface check for movies each year so I’m sure I missed some good ones that were not popular. The hazards of doing it on a short lunch break.

    Reblogged this on The World's Common Tater and commented:

    Taking the day off and watching basketball. Please enjoy this old post where I lost my favorite movie in each year since I was born
