Favourite Movies From Every Year I've Been Alive

Jumping on this bandwagon was so much fun! I have such weird taste apparently.
  1. 1983
    It is crazy how many times I've watched this movie. And I quote it in conversation pretty often. Runners up: National Lampoons Vacation, Return of The Jedi, and WarGames.
  2. 1984
    I guess I just really like Dan Aykroyd. And for the record I love the sequel just as much. Runners up: Muppets Take Manhattan, The Neverending Story, Revenge of the Nerds, and Top Secret.
  3. 1985
    Probably my favourite movie of all time. Infinitely quotable. Infinitely rewatchable. Runners up: BTTF, Better Off Dead, The Breakfast Club, Goonies, and Clue (this was a good year!)
  4. 1986
    An all time favourite and I listen to the soundtrack like once a week. I find if you didn't watch this in the 80s, you just don't get it... Runners up: Big Trouble in Little China, Care Bears Movie 2, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and ¡The Three Amigos!
  5. 1987
    Great movie or greatest movie? I walked down the aisle to one of the songs from this score. Runners up: Adventures in Babysitting, Can't Buy Me Love, and Spaceballs.
  6. 1988
    My husband and I watch this every Christmas. You'd think it gets old, but it doesn't. Runners up: Beetlejuice, Coming to America, My Neighbor Totoro, and Heathers.
  7. 1989
    I could recite this movie forwards and backwards. And Phyllis Neffler is a fashion icon. Runners up: Ghostbusters 2, The Little Mermaid, Christmas Vacation, and The Wizard.
  8. 1990
    I don't even care. It's a classic for a reason. Runners up: Godfellas and My Blue Heaven.
  9. 1991
    I watch this movie whenever I'm feeling down. And goddamn it has a great soundtrack. Runners up: The Addams Family and Point Break.
  10. 1992
    This was another tough year but if I'm being honest this is the one. It has had too much impact on my life to pretend otherwise. Runners up: A League of Their Own, My Cousin Vinny, Sister Act, and Wayne's World.
  11. 1993
    I don't cry at the end. You do. Runners up: Hot Shots! Part Deux, Mrs Doubtfire, and The Nightmare Before Christmas.
  12. 1994
    Such a tough choice but this came down to the one I've watched the most. Runners up: Airheads, Forrest Gump, Pulp Fiction, and Speed.
  13. 1995
    Not my most watched recently but had such a profound impact on 12 y/o me. Crazy year for movies tho. Runners up: To Wong Fo..., Clueless, Die Hard with Vengance, Empire Records, The Usual Suspects, and Mallrats.
  14. 1996
    As a horror fan I went gaga over this. It's still one of my faves. Runners up: First Wives Club, ID4, The Rock, and Trainspotting.
  15. 1997
    My love for Dan Aykroyd rears its head again. But no. I love this movie. Runners up: Face/Off, ConAir, and The Fifth Element.
  16. 1998
    A very slight win here. Honestly this should be a three way tie between The Faculty, and Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels. Other runners up: You Got Mail, BASEketball, and Can't Hardly Wait.
  17. 1999
    Everything I like in a movie complete with dick and fart jokes. Runners up: 10 Things I Hate About You, The Boondock Saints, and Fight Club.

    Hands down my favourite animated Disney film. So underrated. Runner up: American Psycho and High Fidelity.

    I watched this movie 7x in theatres in 2001. Judge away. I don't care. Runners up: Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Monsters Inc, and Oceans Eleven.
  20. 2002
    Literally the only "zombie" movie I love. And I saw it alone in London which helped the mood. Runners up: The Two Towers and Red Dragon.
  21. 2003
    I feel like I shouldn't love this movie, but fuck it, I do. Runners up: Return of The King, Finding Nemo, and Intermission.
