I decided to start a new series on my site.
Because I’ve seen thousands (literally) of movies in my 41+ years, I’ve decided to try and help you all discover (or rediscover) movies of years past that I feel are the best movies of any given year. (yes, some are guilty pleasures, but we are all entitled to our opinions here) 🙂
The idea is simple – I’m gonna randomly choose a year each time and present you all with my favorite movies from that year.
In addition, I will also list (based on a very educated guess) how many movies I’ve seen that came out during that year along with the names of EVERY one of the titles.
I will be using the IMDB release year in order to remain consistent even if the movie was held back a year before wide release like The Hurt Locker or Crash.
This new series will mainly be used on days when I don’t usually post or when I don’t have a regular movie review to post, but being that I plan to be away for the next week and a half with very limited access to the web, I will present u with a new list every day from tomorrow 1st April until the 12th of April.
I hope to present new lists every Friday and Saturday afterwards.
My research has shown me that I’ve seen on an average around 100 movies from each year since 1980 plus a lot less from years beforehand, so currently, I only plan to do this from 1980 until 2013. Perhaps when I finish this list, I’ll venture into pre-1980 where maybe I’ll only do a top 5, but I have a long way to go to get there.
This page itself will be used as a starting point with links to each year’s list and as I watch new movies or review previously viewed movies that I have only now started to review.
Hope you all enjoy this new feature!
Thanks again for all your support and encouragement!
I’d also like to than and give a shoutout to my good friend (the MIA) Josh over at JJames Reviews for his help in shaping this feature but most especially for his suggestion of this awesome series name. Thanks Josh (Hope u come back soon)!!!
