I saw this going around on Facebook and thought it would be pretty fun. So, I am throwing it up for both of my blog readers. Feel free to take a stab on your own pages or in the comments, if you want.
The rules are simple...list your favorite movie for every year since the year of your birth. Not necessarily the "best" movie. That's very subjective. Your FAVORITE movie. For example: Amadeus is a fantastic movie and it won Best Picture in 1984. But, that's the same year that Ghostbusters, The Karate Kid and The Never Ending Story all came out. I would pick any of those as my favorite over Amadeus without denying the greatness of that particular movie.
So there you go. And here I go:
1977: Star Wars (that was easy)
1978: Superman (what a crappy year for movies)
1980: The Empire Strikes Back
1981: Raiders of the Lost Ark
1982: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (this one was hard as ET and Rocky III were also this year)
1983: Return of the Jedi (squeaks by A Christmas Story)
1985: Really hard...but, Back to the Future just beats Goonies.
1986: The Three Amigos
1987: The Princess Bride (I bet you're surprised this beats out Masters of the Universe and Over the Top!)
1988: Die Hard...the greatest Christmas movie of all time!
1989: Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
1990: The Hunt for Red October
1991: Beauty and the Beast (don't judge...or judge...I don't care!)
1992: A League of Their Own
1993: The Fugitive
1994: Forrest Gump
1995: Showgirls. Just kidding! Crimson Tide
1996: The Rock
1998: Saving Private Ryan (this is also the year I lost faith in the Oscars when they gave Best Picture to Shakespeare in Love)
1999: Fight Club (BARELY over The Matrix)
2000: Bring It On
2001: Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
2002: Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
2003: Lord of the Rings: Return of the King
2005: Batman Begins
2006: The Prestige
2008: The Dark Knight
2009: The Hurt Locker
2011: The Muppets
2012: The Avengers
2013: Monsters University
2014: Guardians of the Galaxy
2015: Star Wars: The Force Awakens
2016: Rogue One
Pretty sure 2017 will be this one:
