Day 13 of the #amovieayearchallenge and this is 1989. Not a true clear cut winner here but some fun films, some cheesy classics. Like Roadhouse. How can you not love Roadhouse? Classic comedies like See No Evil Hear No Evil, Uncle Buck, and UHF. Spike Lee made the powerful Do The Right Thing which may be more applicable now than ever. Major League was a sport movie and a comedy...and kicked ass. Fuck you, Jobu. Batman really kicked off the superhero movie genre. Yes there were superhero films before but this really got things kickstarted. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was one hell of a fun sequel. So the best of 1989? I'm left with one of my favorite movies ever: Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. Nearly thirty later this movie still rocks.

Mulligan for 2013 #amovieayearchallenge ... I missed The Way, Way Back and while it wasn't my favorite it is definitely the second best of 2013. I love this damn movie so much and every cast member, especially Liam James, was so damn good.

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 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 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.

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 23 of the #amovieayearchallenge and today is 2000. Don't even come at me with that Gladiator crap. Sandra rocked it in Miss Congeniality and Julia Roberts rocked the boobs in the amazing Erin Brockovich. And Jennifer Connolly was truly rocking it in the hard to watch Requiem for a Dream. Awesome action in Crouching Tiger. Great drama like Traffic, Almost Famous, Snatch (Brad Pitt's best since True Romance), and Remember the Titans. My fave film? Of course it's Boondock Saints. It has to be. It's a true classic.

MOST RECENT

Day 39 of the #amovieayearchallenge and today is the last one...2016. Some great movies this year. Nice Guys, Hell or High Water, Rogue One, Bad Moms, Civil War, and The Founder were all incredible. I so thought Equity was fucking brilliant and told everyone to see it And tied for best film? Deadpool and Florence Foster Jenkins. There's absolutely no way I could choose between them.

Day 38 of the #amovieayearchallenge and YESTERDAY was 2015 (but all my text disappeared). I dug docs like Going Clear and Batkid Begins. Straight Outta Compton is the best film on hip-hop ever...brilliant. Sicario was brutal and awesome. Sisters was hilarious. And the best film of the year? Or perhaps of the past ten years? The absolutely perfect Spotlight directed by Tom McCarthy. #scientology #goingclear #batkid #batman #cancer #nwa #hiphop #rap #straightouttacompton #sicario #emilyblunt #sisters #tinafey #amypoehler #spotlight @bostonglobe #michaelkeaton #rachelmcadams #markruffalo #lievschreiber

Day 37 of the #amovieayearchallenge and today is 2014. I'd be remiss if I did not including the amazing Richie Knucklez doc The King of Arcades which I was in for a brief moment. Count myself lucky to have been up on the big screen. Most of my other favorites seem to be genre films including Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the incredible Edge of Tomorrow, Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America: Winter Soldier, and the hilarious Lego Movie. Comedies like Grand Budapest Hotel and Chef were just brilliant. The best? Easy. John Wick. That film has grown to be my favorite action flick of all time.

Day 36 of the #amovieayearchallenge and today is 2013. I had a very tough time coming up with just nine movies that I really enjoyed. I liked Dallas Buyers Club and Saving Mr Banks though they are at the bottom of this list. Fast and Furious 6 was fun but really turned the franchise into a superhero film. People hated on Man of Steel but I really dug it especially since it got away from the Donner films. The better comic book flick? Chris Evans in Snowpiecer. Amazing movie. A Band Called Death was phenom. So great and truly one of the year's best. I love the Bollywood Dhoom series and Dhoom 3 did not disappoint with Aamir Khan as the bad guy. This is the End was hilarious. The best movie? Leo and Jonah in Wolf of Wall Street. Sooooooooo good.

Day 35 of the #amovieayearchallenge and today is 2012. Really my pick should be Thankskilling 3 since it was my theatrical debut (voice only). But my faves...I loved the first Avengers film. Dredd and The RAID were so similar but both kicked major ass in their own way. Wreck It Ralph is so amazing...loved it. Cloud Atlas and Argo were outstanding. Goon and Ted I can watch over and over again. But my favorite? Searching for Sugar Man. It may be a flawed and limited doc but my god it is fantastic.

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.
