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!
This is another year which I almost went for a top twenty list, but I decided there was enough of a difference between how much I loved the top ten versus how much I liked the 11-20 to let me stick with a solid ten. Here’s the ones that didn’t make the cut: Backdraft. Barton Fink. Boyz N The Hood. Cape Fear. Delicatessen. JFK. My Girl. My Own Private Idaho. Naked Lunch. New Jack City. Once Upon A Time In China. Raise The Red Lantern. The Silence Of The Lambs.
And now for the Top Ten:
10: Drop Dead Fred (US/UK) Ate De Jong
9: Double Impact (US) Sheldon Lettich
8: The Doors (US) Oliver Stone
7: Bill And Ted’s Bogus Journey (US) Pete Hewitt
6: Thelma And Louise (US) Ridley Scott
5: Robin Hood Prince Of Thieves (US) Kevin Reynolds
4: Don’t Tell Mom The Babysitter’s Dead (US) Stephen Herek
3: The Last Boy Scout (US) Tony Scott
2: Beauty And The Beast (US) Disney
1: Terminator 2 (Top Ten Of All Time) (US) James Cameron
