My Favourite Film from Every Year I’ve Been Alive

Jurassic-Park-4

So the latest thing I saw going around on film Twitter was to write out lists of your favourite films from every year you’ve been alive. I thought the idea sounded quite fun and gave it a shot. Here are mine:

1987 – Predator

1988 – Die Hard

1989 – Casualties of War

1990 – Goodfellas

1991 – Terminator 2: Judgement Day

1992 – Unforgiven

1993 – Jurassic Park

1994 – Natural Born Killers

1995 – Before Sunrise

1996 – Fargo

1997 – Starship Troopers

1998 – The Truman Show

1999 – Magnolia

2000 – Memento

2001 – The Royal Tenenbaums

2002 – Lilya 4-Ever

2003 – Oldboy

2004 –Shaun of the Dead

2005 – A History of Violence

2006 – The Fountain

2007 – Eastern Promises

2008 – The Wrestler

2009 – World’s Greatest Dad

2010 – Bedevilled

2011 – The Guard

2012 – Cloud Atlas

2013 – The Spectacular Now

2014 – Calvary

2015 – Mad Max: Fury Road

2016 – Arrival

 

I knew that there were plenty of years that I’d have an easy, obvious answer for, but there were a few years when I struggled to think of any notable movie I really liked, particularly 2009 and 2005, I found myself looking up lists of films from the years to find the best answer for me. Conversely, there were a couple of years, like 2001 and 1999 where there were multiple films I wanted to list. Oh well, goes to show that there are some years that are just better for films than others. In case you’re interested, here are my runner-up picks for each year as well.
