Favorite movies for every year I've been alive...

  1. Blazing Saddles (1974)
    Ok. I was an infant when this movie came out, obviously, so the first few movies became favorites years later. Like, in high school.
  2. Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)
  3. Taxi Driver (1976)
  4. Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977)
  5. Animal House (1978)
    Superman was originally my favorite movie of 1978.
  6. Apocalypse Now (1979)
  7. The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
    Close call with The Blues Brothers.
  8. Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
  9. Poltergeist (1982)
  10. Return of the Jedi (1983)
  11. Ghostbusters (1984)
    Terminator. Gremlins. The Karate Kid. Revenge of the Nerds. A great year for movies.
  12. TIE: The Goonies / Back to the Future (1985)
    I couldn't choose between the two.
  13. Another great year for movies. I didn't even include Weird Science. This is why I can also hate lists.
  14. Aliens (1986)
    Ferris Bueller's Day Off might also be my favorite but I remember in 1986 I really really loved Ferris Bueller but I really really really loved Aliens.
  15. Predator (1987)
    Just edging RoboCop. Tough decision.
  16. Die Hard (1988)
    Favorite movie of this decade.
  17. Back to the Future II (1989)
  18. Goodfellas (1990)
  19. Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991)
  20. Reservoir Dogs (1992)
  21. Jurassic Park (1993)
  22. Pulp Fiction (1994)
    Beating out Clerks. Better acting.
  23. Friday (1995)
  24. Fargo (1996)
  25. Boogie Nights (1997)
  26. The Big Lebowski (1998)
    Favorite movie of this decade.
  27. Fight Club (1999)
  28. Almost Famous (2000)
    Favorite movie of this decade.
  29. Wet Hot American Summer (2001)
    Amélie. The Royal Tenenbaums. Training Day. Rock Star. Many other favorite movies made this list nearly impossible.
  30. 28 Days Later... (2002)
  31. Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003)
  32. Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004)
  33. Batman Begins (2005)
  34. Children of Men (2006)
  35. Hot Rod (2007)
    This movie beats No Country for Old Men and There Will Be Blood, simply because it's ridiculous.
  36. Step Brothers (2008)
    The Dark Knight. WALL-E. Let The Right One In. This one wins simply for rewatchability. It's too goddamn funny.
  37. Inglourious Basterds (2009)
  38. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (2010)
  39. Drive (2011)
  40. The Cabin in the Woods (2012)
  41. The World's End (2013)
  42. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
  43. Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)
    Favorite movie of this decade.
  44. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016)
  45. Logan (2017, so far)
    Get Out was good too, but 2017 looks promising.
