Temporal Top Ten – 1990


top ten

Number of movies seen from this year – 116
Number of movies reviewed – 54 (including 3 Encore Reviews)

I’m usually not a fan of non-English language movies at all, but this year’s #1 actually is in Polish, German, Russian and Hebrew without a word of English.  I fell in love with this movie when my parents dragged me to an art house premiere when I was 16. I have seen it several times since and am always impressed by the quality of the storytelling.

Unfortunately, since it was a multi country production, it was ineligible to even be nominated for the Best Foreign Film despite it winning that award at the Globes.

As a 16 year old, I spent a lot of time in the theater and of all 10 of these movies, #9 is the only one that I didnt originally see on the big screen.

Deciding between #2 and #3 was not simple because they are both amazing movies despite being so different in scope and story.

Ultimately, the epic feel and cinematography are what helped me decide on my #2. (It was really close tho)

#4 is a guilty pleasure of mine and is one of the few movies that I have ever seen twice in the theater within less than 24 hours.

#5 is an amazingly fun sci-fi action thriller that has special effects that were so cutting edge that they were given the Oscar instead of it being a competition for the SFX award.

#6 is one of my favorite Stephen King thrillers with an epic performance by its leading lady who was pretty much an unknown before this movie helped her win Best Actress.

#7 is a thrilling courtroom drama that is almost as good as the book.

#8 is a star studded WWII drama that deals with the crew of a bomber on their final mission before going home.

#9 is a pretty much unknown WWII drama that tells a story of how people managed on the homefront despite difficult circumstances.

And finally my #10 is a romantic drama with supernatural elements that changed the way we all will forever think of making pottery.

  1. Not seen several of these, but I do really like Misery, Ghost, Memphis Belle, and Dances with Wolves. I’ve been meaning to see Die Hard 2 again; I recall liking it, and #9 now has my interest too.
