Temporal Top Ten – 1993

top ten

Number of movies seen from this year – 144
Number of movies reviewed – 120 (Including 19 Encore Reviews)

Once again, here is a year where my favorites movies span so many genres.

This year features dramas (historical and fictional) a rom-com, action movies, thrillers, two comedy’s with serious tones and even a sports related film.

You will also notice that only 2 Oscar BP nominees appear here. The other three were good movies, but couldn’t break into my top ten.

#1 is such a powerful film that if I ever get to doing a decade top ten, it might very well top the list. It is truly one of the best and most disturbing movies ever made.

  1. What a great year! I’d have Mrs. Doubtfire somewhere on there instead of 3, and I still have yet to see Schindler’s List, but otherwise this would be my list. Excellent taste!


    • I really enjoyed #3 and I do understand that the violence and language aspects aren’t ur cup of tea. Mrs. Doubtfire was very good, but no good enough IMHO to crack my top ten. I am shocked that u haven’t seen SL. It’s a must despite its heavy theme. Thanks SG

  3. Another number 1 with which I think no disagreement can be made. Schindler’s List is so fantastic. I would probably have Philadelphia a little higher on this list, though, and I think Grumpy Old Men would probably crack any list I compiled for this year. (I didn’t like the Grump Old Men follow-up, but I think the original a comedy of sheer genius.)
