Number of movies seen from this year – 140
Number of movies reviewed – 95 (Including 13 Encore Reviews)

 

1991 was an important and impactful year for my movie watching abilities.

I was a junior in high school for the first half of the year and continued my weekly cinema visits including Saturday night midnight showings.

From September, I was a Senior with an extremely light schedule that allowed me to be home every day by 1230.

With little to no homework and work in my parents store on the late afternoon, I started to watch at least two movies from my vast video collection every day.

I even still have the list in a box in my attic. 😉

In addition, I also spent a lot of time in the cinema over the weekends. Looking over the list, many of them were originally seen in the theater. (All of my top ten definitely were seen in the theater) 😉

My #1 once again is a movie that probably doesn’t populate many people’s top tens, but I have always loved it for its characters and message about life. I also happened to see it for the first time on my 17th birthday in the theater having no real clue as to what it was about. In addition, it also features my favorite movie quote about movie watching. 😉

My top 5 are all movies I can watch over and over and never get bored. I know them all practically by heart.

  1. It’s great to find out more about your movie habits. At college I had more flexible hours of study and was able to rent film at my local video store as long as I gave them back by 6 i could rent whatever movie I wanted so I just got a list from IMDB and worked my way through them.

  3. Bizarre. I haven’t seen 8 of the 10 movies on your ’07 list, but I’ve seen all 10 of the ’91 films.

    I agree with Dead Again being on this list. A lot. That flick is why I fell in love with Branagh. I’d have Silence of the Lambs number 1, though. And, oddly, the only one I didn’t like at all was Grand Canyon, your number 1. Though, it should be noted, I watched it only twice, both times when I was an adolescent (probably around 15 and 17 ish). I wasn’t the target audience then, as I recall. I wonder if I’d like it more now that I’m older.

  4. Again, another amazing list. Backdraft is great, Terminator 2 should be way higher and weirdly I’ve never heard of the number 1 choice, let alone seen it! Good post as always.
