Temporal Top Ten – 1988


1988

top ten

Number of movies seen from this year – 146
Number of movies reviewed – 105 (including 13 Encore Reviews)

1988 was a pivotal year for me as a moviewatcher. I was 14 and would spend every Sunday in the theater when possible.

Having seen all 5 Oscar BP nominees, I can’t say they were the most entertaining and enjoyable movies for me at the time (or even now for that matter.)

As you will see, only 2 made my top ten.  Of the other three, even as a hormonal 14 year old, I have never been a fan of Dangerous Liaisons and I found The Accidental Tourist to just drag on.  Mississippi Burning was very good, but there were many more movies that were just better that year.

It would take me another year to see my #1 and that was on video and then cable so many times over and over.  Nothin’ like creating a genre with such a great film.

My #2 is a relatively recent entry into my repertoire and I have loved it both times I’ve seen it because it is the perfect kind of movie for a cinephile like me. 🙂
