Nightman’s Top Ten Films Of 1989

Greetings, Glancers! We continue my new series of posts which will detail my favourite films of every year since 1950. Why 1950? Why 10? Why anything? Check out my original post here. As with most of these lists the numbering doesn’t really matter much, though in most cases the Number 1 will be my clear favourite. As I know there are plenty of Stats Nerds out there, I’ll add in some bonus crap at the bottom but the main purpose of these posts is to keep things short. So!

10: The Killer (HK)

9: Uncle Buck (US)

8: Born On The Fourth Of July (US)

7: Kiki’s Delivery Service (Japan)

6: See No Evil, Hear No Evil (US)

5: Licence To Kill (US/UK)

4: Pet Sematary (US)

3: Back To The Future Part II  (US)

2: Bill And Ted’s Excellent Adventure (US)

1: Batman (US)

How Many Of My Films Were In The Top 10 Grossing Of The Year: Three

How Many Of My Films Were Nominated For the Best Picture Oscar: One

    Interesting list though you left out some really great ones like Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing and Brian De Palma’s Casualties of War. Other than that, keep up the great work as always 🙂

      Both of those would have been on my list if I’d done a 20

    Nevertheless, I am glad to see that you included John Woo’s The Killer on there 🙂

    See No Evil, Hear No Evil was a fun surprise to see (considering I hadn’t seen you list before I wrote mien and felt very few had seen it) also I like how we both put Batman at number 1

      I think that’s the Pryor/Wilder film I laugh at most, while Burton’s Batman is just wonderful
