    OLDER THAN DIRT?
    Cinema had not yet been invented when I was born. My people were still into shadow puppets on the cave walls.

    1990 is my year (not going to lie, there are some really good ones in this particular year but this is my top ten fav list)

    1) Ghost (great film)
    2) Problem Child (So this kid was basically me as a kid but I never got caught  and got straight A’s so it evened out)
    3) Cry-Baby (one of my guilty pleasure movies)
    4) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (my guility pleasure movie of all time)
    5) Pretty Woman (great film)
    6) Goodfellas (my fav film of all time from Scorsesse)
    7) Home Alone (who doesn’t love this film?!)
    8) Misery (She was AMAZING)
    9) The Godfather Part III (Trainwreck? Maybe. Fun? Absolutely)
    10) The Hunt for Red October (I hated this film for the longest time but it was on every day for the past two weeks on various stations and it grew on me)

    1983 (I admit I haven’t seen much from that year)

    1. King of Comedy (my favorite Scorsese movie)
    2. Silkwood (snubbed for BP-Why?) 
    3. Videodrome (typical Cronenberg)
    4. The Hunger  
    5. Flashdance
    6. Trading Places (that was fun)
    7. Yentl  (was okay)

    I’ve seen Terms of Endearment and The Big Chill, but both were nothing special and I just don’t know why both got a BP nom and the former mentioned even the win. Ugh…

    I feel priviledged that I was born in such a strong year for film. If I was born in another year, I would’ve been born on the same year as my all-time favourite film, Toy Story.

    1. Forrest Gump
    2. The Lion King
    3. Pulp Fiction
    4. The Shawshank Redemption
    5. Four Weddings and a Funeral
    6. Speed
    7. Quiz Show
    8. Legends of the Fall
    9. The River Wild
    10. Ed Wood

    May the best of your todays be the worst of your tomorrows.
