Day 20 of the #amovieayearchallenge and today is 1997. Bill Paxton had 3 movies this year but only Titanic made the cut. Kevin Smith made the amazing Chasing Amy AND exec produced the phenom Good Will Hunting. As Good as it Gets was unbelievable AND had Helen Hunt in a wet shirt once again. Thank you!!! Boogie Nights gave us some porn and Men in Black was a comic book flick hit. Top 3? My Best Friends Wedding at #3, at #2 just missing the top spot is L.A. Confidential, and Howard Stern takes best movie of 97 with the excellent Private Parts.

Day 2 of the #amovieayearchallenge and the second day is 1978. There's a clear cut winner for me but I was actually surprised at the amount of films I really wasn't I to the particular year. Either disappointing or the lists I was looking at was incomplete. Anyway - National Lampoon's Animal House is one of my favorites of all time and the adventures of Otter, Boon, D-Day, Bluto, Pinto, and Flounder will ALWAYS be tops in my book. Plus Karen Allen was the super cutest. Runner up? John Carpenter's Halloween. Simple yet effective - before they started doing stupid sequels over and over. Plus Jamie Lee Curtis and PJ Soles!! #animalhouse #nationallampoon #jamieleecurtis #pjsoles #johnbelushi #saturdaynightlive #1978 #michaelmyers

Day 5 of the #amovieayearchallenge and this year is 1981. This year was a bit easier but I struggled with my favorite. Heavy Metal came out this year and between the nudity, violence, and the soundtrack it has had a lasting impression. Time Bandits! Terry Gillian's classic still rocks to this day. And the ending? Priceless. The #2 spot goes to...Raiders of the Lost Ark. classic film but still diminished a bit by Crystal Skull. So my #1 choice is Excalibur. Film still kicks ass to this very day and the actors would become major stars.

Day 17 of the #amovieayearchallenge and it is 1993. Stiff competition. Dragon the Bruce Lee Story, True Romance, The Fugitive...great. Jurassic Park, Army of Darkness, Groundhog Day, and The Sandlot? Wonderful. Runner up is the so great Joy Luck Club. 1993's best? Tombstone. It has aged so well. I'm your huckleberry.

Day 11 of the #amovieayearchallenge and in 1987 there is a tie. Just the way it is. Runner-ups include the amazing Nightmare on Elm Street 3 and Monster Squad. Action films kicked butt with Lethal Weapon and Robocop. DeNiro Vs Kevin Costner and Sean Connery in The Untouchables is just classic. I caught a huge crush on Courtney Thorne-Smith in Mark Harmon's amazing comedy Summer School. Equally amazing was Robin Williams in Good Morning Vietnam. The best movies? Predator and Spaceballs are tied. One cannot beat the other. Both classics.

Day 12 of the #amovieayearchallenge and today is 1988. Clear winner here is Die Hard. What film beats Die Hard this year? None. Nada. Zip. The comedies really kicked ass this year with Twins, Naked Gun, Coming to America, and Beetlejuice. You all slept on Plain Clothes which is truly a classic. Love you Arliss Howard. Roger Rabbit is a technical marvel which still looks amazing to this day. I still watch Bloodsport once a year and it is still phenom. "Dux? Like put up your dukes?" "Who cares if Bruce Springsteen was his shidoshi!" "No. Bottom brick." Ha! And I can't forget Edward James Olmos in Stand and Deliver. Damn he was awesome.

Day 27 of the #amovieayearchallenge and today is 2004. I really struggled to even find 9 movies that I really like a lot. I like that they finally made a good Harry Potter film. Team America and Dodgeball were both silly fun. And some good dramas I guess. But my favorite? The Edgar Wright/Simon Pegg/Nick Frost masterpiece Shaun of the Dead. It truly was the perfect follow up to Spaced.

Day 16 of the #amovieayearchallenge and today is 1992. Some fun movies this year. Juice was an instant classic and made Tupac a superstar. Scent of a Woman....hooah! Great dramas like A Few Good Men, Chaplin, and One False Move. Great comedies like Wayne's World, My Cousin Vinny, and one of my favorites...Brain Donors. The best movie of the year? That's easy. Aladdin.

Day 29 of the #amovieayearchallenge and today is 2006. Bond was back with Casino Royale and Rocky was back too. But really it was all about the comedies with Borat, Jackass 2, Idiocracy, Stick It, Grandma's Boy and the incredible Clerks 2. My fave? Beerfest. Is it an Oscar winner? No. But I can watch it over and over again. I can do that with most of these comedies actually.

MOST RECENT

Day 34 of the #amovieayearchallenge and 2011 was all about my genre films. I loved Ip Man 2, Fast Five, the last Harry Potter, the Planet of the Apes reboot, and X-Men First Class. The Tribe Called Quest documentary was everything I ever wanted. Women in Trouble's sequel Elektra Luxx was so much fun. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy was some deep heavy spy intrigue. The best movie? Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill killed it in the adaptation of Michael Lewis' Moneyball.

Day 33 of the #amovieayearchallenge and some great movies in 2010. I love The Losers, Get Him To The Greek, The Other Guys, Despicable Me, and The Town. I REALLY love Toy Story 3, Inception, and The Social Network. But the best is Donnie Yen's Ip Man. One of my favorite films of all time.

Day 32 of the #amovieayearchallenge and today is 2009. First off Big Stan got slept on but I think it is a brilliant comedy. I think Rob Schneider finally killed it but no one saw it. Great action flicks with Taken and Boondock 2. Black Dynamite was one amazing comedy. People hated on Watchmen but I though it was a pretty terrific adaptation with a brilliant 3rd act change that I approved of. Brothers Bloom really showed Rian Johnson's genius. So my fave? Hard to decide here. Both Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side and Aamir Khan in 3 Idiots elevated good movies to great ones with amazing performances. So it's a truly tough call here on Blind Side vs 3 Idiots. Fuck it...I'm going 3 Idiots for the king of 2009. All is well!

Day 31 of the #amovieayearchallenge and today is 2008. Man this was tough...I had to leave off both The Wrestler and Dear Zachary. Great comedies with both Sarah Marshall and Role Models. Wall-E killed. Jean Claude was robbed for not getting an Oscar nod for JCVD. RDJ had Iron Man but was even better in Tropic Thunder. Fincher rocked wit with Benjamin Button and Eastwood with his awesome performance in Gran Torino. The winner? My fave comic movie of all time - The Dark Knight. Still fucking kills it.

Day 30 of the #amovieayearchallenge and today is 2007. Not a great year of movies for me. 300 started my man crush on Michael Fassbender. Both Gone Baby Gone and No Country for Old Men were just vicious. The Simpsons Movie was everything I hoped it would be. That leaves me with Hot Fuzz and King of Kong. For the first time I think I have a tie. They both are just amazing. Sad that they made Billy Mitchell the ad guy but whatever. Hot Fuzz? Just perfection.

Day 28 of the #amovieayearchallenge and today is 2005 - a year I was not impressed with my list only has 6 flicks for this year and I'm not even sure I have a favorite. Out of Constantine, King Fu Hustle, League or Ordinary Gentleman, Batman Begins, 40 Year Old Virgin, and Batman Begins my fave may be...dude...I have no clue. I guess I'll pick Batman but I don't know...

Day 26 of the #amovieayearchallenge and today is 2003. Clear winner here is The Station Agent - one of my faves of all time. This is closely followed by American Splendor and Return of the King. Great genre films too with X2, 2 Fast 2 Furious (I LOVE this one) and Kill Bill. And Bad Santa??? SOOOOO good!

Day 25 of the #amovieayearchallenge and today is 2002. Had to rearrange my top 9 a couple times. First off Super Troopers is pure genius and will always rank as one of my favorite comedies of all time. The first time I saw Jackass I doubled over - I was laughing so hard I couldn't catch my breath. Big Fat Greek Wedding was really the cutest film while Kissing Jessica Stein was a great lil indy that I feel gets overlooked now. The Rookie, Catch Me If You Can, 8 Mile, and We Were Soldiers are all great biopics (8 Miles less so but still). So my fave? Nicolas Cage in Adaptation. Cage was great but Charlie Kaufman's screenplay knocked it out of the park.

Day 24 of the #amovieayearchallenge and today is 2001. Honestly? Wasn't blown away by 2001. The first Lord of the Rings was pretty damn good, I dug Monsters Inc, and it was great getting Jackie and Chris back together for Rush Hour 2. Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back was silly but also got Dante and Randal back to the Quick Stop. I think the clear winner is Richard Kelly's Donnie Darko. It's so well done and a complete mindfuck. Just brilliant.
