For Every Year You Were Born…

If you follow any pop culture savvy friends or writers on any of your social media accounts, you’ve more than likely come across the “Name A Favorite Movie For Every Year Since You Were Born” challenge over the last week. The rules are pretty self-explanatory, basically for each year that you’ve been alive, you pick a favorite movie that was released that year. I was born in 1991, so I started with 1991 and ended with 2016. I saw some of y’all using 2017, but it’s too early for me!

Of course, for movie buffs this isn’t an easy task! Do y’all know how hard it was to not put Crossroads for 2002?!?!? This was SO hard for me to do because I love movies and I love all kinds of movies. I can say Jawbreaker, The Silence of the Lambs, Pulp Fiction, American Psycho, The Conjuring, Clueless, Beetlejuice and Chicago are all some of my favorites to the point where I can quote them. My taste is so varied most likely because my parents both like crazy, different movies and they always let each other pick. So growing up I saw EVERYTHING. I continue to see everything and living in LA, seeing movies is more of a luxury thing for me ($17-22.50 a ticket, puhleaze).

This list was SO difficult, but this is my Name A Favorite Movie For Every Year Since You Were Born:

1991: The Silence of the Lambs

1992: Basic Instinct

1993: The Nightmare before Christmas

1994: Pulp Fiction

1995: Seven

1996: Scream

1997: Romy & Michele’s High School Reunion

1998: American History X

1999: Eyes Wide Shut

2000: American Psycho

2001: The Royal Tenebaums

2002: Chicago

2003: Kill Bill

2004: Saw

2005: Thank You for Smoking

2006: The Holiday

2007: Atonement

2008: Gran Torino

2009: A Serious Man

2010: Black Swan

2011: The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo

2012: Zero Dark Thirty

2013: 12 Years a Slave

2014: The Grand Budapest Hotel

2015: Spotlight

2016: Jackie

I spent so much time making a list, it’s embarrassing. Trying to choose a movie any year a Harry Potter movie came out or something over Mad Max (Tom Hardy, not Mel), GHEEZE. I could make this list by genre, original screenplay, adapted screenplay, studio, independent, but I will stick with an overall list. I’m confident these would be the movies I would choose over and over.
