FB Challenge: Favorite Movies by Your Years
« on: March 25, 2017, 08:32:05 PM »
So, if anyone's on social media, there's a new challenge(of sorts) going around, to list YOUR favorite(not best) movies for every year, since the year you were born.

I wanted to ask it here, because I'm curious to see what some of you would say.  There were some really tough years(1984), some were easy(1981), some were just meh(2010).  All these movies are movies I'd drop everything I'm doing and watch.  But again, curious to see what others would say.

Starting from the top:

2017:  Star Wars Episode VIII:  The Last Jedi
2016:  Rogue One, A Star Wars Story
2015:  Star Wars Episode VII:  The Force Awakens
2014:  Captain America: The Winter Soldier
2013:  G.I. Joe Retaliation
2012:  The Avengers
2011:  Captain America: The First Avenger
2010:  True Grit
2009:  Black Dynamite
2008:  The Dark Knight
2007:  Paranormal Activity
2006:  The Pursuit of Happyness
2005:  Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
2004:  Crash
2003:  Love Actually
2002:  Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
2001:  Last Castle
2000:  The Contender
1999:  Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace
1998:  Pleasantville
1997:  TIE: Starship Troopers/The Second Civil War
1996:  The Last Supper
1995:  Usual Suspects
1994:  Pulp Fiction
1993:  Carlito's Way
1992:  A League of Their Own
1991:  Terminator 2: Judgement Day
1990:  Dick Tracy
1989:  Harlem Nights
1988:  I'm Gonna Get You Sucka
1987:  Predator
1986:  Big Trouble In Little China
1985:  TIE:  Weird Science/Berry Gordy's The Last Dragon
1984:  Conan The Destroyer

I struggled with 2011, 2010, 2007, 2006 and 2001 because there were so few worthy choices.  I more or less settled on those choices.
And 1984 was tough!  There were about 10 I could have picked.
