Blogathon: A Life In Movies
Fellow movie blogger CS at Big Thoughts From A Small Mind got an early start on Fandago Grooves' "A Life In Movies" Blogathon! The idea is simple: starting with the year you were born, list your favorite movie for each year through 2011. Although it doesn't officially kick off until May 8th, I'm far too excited to wait! Here's my list!
1988: "Beetlejuice" - This movie single-handedly kicked off my Tim Burton obsession.
1989: "Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade" - I used to watch this on my grandparents' RCA Video Disc Player!
1990: "Goodfellas" - So many incredible performances and such a fun movie to watch.
1991: "The Rocketeer" - A lot of people forget about this one, but it's a classic.
1992: "A League Of Their Own" - I laugh out loud every time I watch this again.
1993: "Jurassic Park" - One of my earliest memories of going to the movie theater...damn, that T-Rex was loud!
1994: "Dumb and Dumber" - Funniest. movie. of. all. time.
1995: "Desperado" - Steve Buscemi's monologue is absolutely priceless.
1996: "Romeo + Juliet" - Baz Luhrman's vivid imagination made this movie unforgettable. I still cry every time!
1997: "The Fifth Element" - One of my favorite sci-fi movies of all time. Luc Besson is such a genius.
1998: "Saving Private Ryan" - Such an insult that this movie lost Best Picture to "Shakespeare In Love."
1999: "The Boondock Saints" - Because you can always use a bit of rope.
2000: "Memento" - Ahh, the world gets a proper introduction to the awesomeness that is Christopher Nolan.
2001: "Donnie Darko" - Why are you wearing that stupid man suit?
2002: "Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers" - Epic epicness!
2003: "The Matrix Reloaded" - Damn, I friggin' love the freeway chase.
2004: "I Heart Huckabees" - I really can't say enough for this movie. It had a huge impact on my own personal philosophy.
2005: "The Constant Gardener" - For once, the movie was just as good as the novel. Rachel Weisz was so amazing.
2006: "The Descent" - I'm not much of a horror fan, but this movie was flawless - scary and smart.
2007: "Into The Wild" - The combination of Sean Penn directing and Eddie Vedder composing made this movie so emotional.
2008: "The Dark Knight" - I've probably watched this movie 50+ times.
2009: "District 9" - This movie sucked me right in. I couldn't take my eyes off of it!
2010: "Inception" - You're shocked, I know.
2011 (So far...): "Sucker Punch" - I don't care what anyone thinks, I friggin' loved it!
