My favorite time of the year!

This time of year is always about new things, new beginnings and then focusing on all that's happened.  There are usually shows on about the best movies, songs, artists, etc - I thought I'd make a list of my favorite movies over the years.  Yes, boring for you to read, I'm sure - but maybe you'll see something here that you'd like to watch and it'll give you something to do one cold wintery night when there's nothing on television!!

The 80's were a good time for movies!! I've picked movies that I remember either watching at my Nanny's (she had cable and a VCR!) or going to the movies to see.

1980 - Nine to Five

1982 - ET
1983 - War Games
1984 - a very good year - Footloose, Ghostbusters, Karate Kid, Purple Rain (even though I got grounded for watching it)
1985 - Back to the Future, Rocky 4, The Breakfast Club, White Knights, Pee Wee's Big Adventure, Real Genius
1986 - Top Gun, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Stand By Me, Short Circuit, Pretty in Pink
1987 - Fatal Attraction, Dirty Dancing, Manniquin, Secret of my Success
1988 - Rain Man, Cocktail, Beetlejuice, Young Guns, Bull Durham, Tequila Sunrise, Hair Spray
1989 - Look Who's Talking, Steel Magnolias, Field of Dreams, Turner and Hooch, Christmas Vacation

The 90's were almost as good as the 80's.

1990 - Home Alone, Ghost, Flatliners, Pump up the Volume
1991 - Silence of the Lambs, Sleeping with the Enemy, Back Draft
1992 - A Few Good Men, The Bodyguard, A League of their Own, Scent of a Woman
1993 - Groundhog Day
1994 - Forrest Gump, The Santa Clause, Speed, The Mask, Little Women, When a Man Loves a Woman, Blown Away
1995 - American President, A Walk in the Clouds
1996 - Independence Day, Twister, Jerry McGuire, One Fine Day
1997 - Titanic, Best Friend's Wedding, Austin Powers
1998 - You've Got Mail, Step Mom, The Wedding Singer
1999 - Big Daddy, She's All That, Varsity Blues

I've realized I like a lot of cheesy movies!!

2000 - The Grinch, What Women Want, The Perfect Storm, Gone in 60 Seconds, Bring It On, Coyote Ugly
2001 - Harry Potter, Oceans Eleven, Save the Last Dance, The Wedding Planner, Serendipity
2002 - Sweet Home Alabama, Ya-Ya Sisterhood, Harry Potter
2003 - Pirates of the Caribbean, How to Loose a Guy in Ten Days, Harry Potter
2004 - Harry Potter, The Polar Express, National Treasure
2005 - Narnia, Harry Potter, Wedding Crashers, Walk the Line
2006 - Pirates 2, Cars, The Break Up, Step Up
2007 - Pirates 3, Transformers, Harry Potter, National Treasure 2, Knocked Up, Hairspray,
2008 - The Dark Knight, Four Christmases
2009 - Harry Potter, New Moon, The Proposal, The Ugly Truth
2010 - Eclipse, Harry Potter, Toy Story 3

So - that's a lot of Harry Potter up there!!  But, dang - those movies are outstanding!!

2011 - Harry Potter (again), Cars 2 (really loved seeing this), Friends with Benefits

There's a-whole-nother list of movies I haven't seen in 2011 that I'd like to see.  But really, do you need to know all that?  Probably not!  My Netflix queue is awfully full!
