Danny, I assume that your inclusion of Girl Next Door means that in 2004 you've been to the movies only, like, once? Very Happy

I love all of your choices, Michael. I'm especially pleased to see Before Sunrise--I'm thrilled that I contributed to its paltry box-office take! Can't wait for Before Sunset.

I wasn't initially too thrilled with the idea of a sequel, but the trailer is pretty good, and now I'm dying to see it. I just noticed that it's one of the first movies to be released under the new "Warner Independent Pictures" banner.

Only one per year?? :(



I...I just can't.



Well, I'll try:



1994: Pulp Fiction

1995: 12 Monkeys

1996: Sling Blade

1997: L.A. Confidential

1998: Truman Show

1999: Fight Club

2000: Traffic

2001: Memento

2002: Road to Perdition

2003: Lord of the Rings - The whole Trilogy

2004: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind



Honorable Mentions: Forrest Gump, Fargo, Jerry Maguire, As Good As It Gets, Good Will Hunting, Boogie Nights, Pleasantville, Shakespeare in Love, Elizabeth, Saving Private Ryan, Seven, Toy Story, American Beauty, The Virgin Suicides, The Matrix, Cider House Rules, The Sixth Sense, Being John Malkovich (Damn, 1999 was a great year!), Magnolia, Sleepy Hollow (so beautiful), Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Requiem for a Dream, Almost Famous, Gladiator (you heard me), Moulin Rouge, A Beautiful Mind, Gosford Park, Monster's Ball, Amelie, Ghost World, A.I. Artificial Intelligence, Spider-Man, Lost in Translation, The Last Samurai, Big Fish, Kill Bill Vol 1, Kill Bill Vol 2.



I count the LOTR trilogy as a single body of work because...well...I think I have to. To me, it's such a remarkable achievement of cinema that it deserves to be recognized as a single, cohesive work, so I lumped it all together with the final volume which was, I felt, the crowning achievement of the 3.



It should also be noted that I've seen far more movies than I can recall, and I was going off the list of Oscar nominations (not just best picture, but all categories) to recall films that I enjoyed. I'm sure if I had a stronger recollection, I could list dozens more.

1994- Dellamorte dellamore (dir. Michele Soavi)

1995-In the Mouth of Madness (dir. John Carpenter)

1996-?

1997-Perfect Blue (dir. Satoshi Kon)

1998-Ringu (dir. Hideo Nakata)

1999-Das Experiment (dir. Oliver Hirschbiegel)

2000-Battle Royale (dir. Kinji Fukasaku)

2001-Donnie Darko (dir. Richard Kelly)

2002-May (dir. Lucky McGee)

2003-A Tale of Two Sisters (dir. Ji-woon Kim)

2004-?



Couldn't think of anything for 1996. If anyone has any ideas that might jog my memory, I'd welcome them.



The only 2004 film I've seen so far (I think) is Van Helsing, and I'll be buggered if I'm putting that in there, even if it is strictly speaking the best film from 2004 I've seen.
