Great year for film. We got the second best movie, the third best movie, the seventh best movie, the best animated movie, and the best comedy movie, all in ONE year. - PeeledBanana

The Shawshank Redemption, Pulp Fiction, Forrest Gump, and Leon are some of the movies made this year. - booklover1

The Shawshank Redemption, Forrest Gump, Dumb and Dumber, Pulp Fiction! And especially the biggest masterpiece of 1994: The Lion King.

2 1982

Barbarosa (Excellent, Excellent), Blade Runner, My Favorite Year, Fanny & Alexander and Moonlighting all have 100% approval ratings on Rotten Tomatoes which is very rare for most older movies. Since current ones are at the time popular and then after time lose that rating. Not very important, but interesting. Seen all five of these 1982 Masterpieces and I approve. You must view all five of them sometime in your life. Along with Diner, The Verdict and Victor/Victoria all of which just missed the 100% score. Oh yes I forgot Richard Pryor Live On The Sunset Strip which also scored 100% and is still the best Stand up comedy film of all time and for good reason. Now that's quality!

I Thinks this year is best known for such classics as Blade Runner, Poltergeist, The Thing (best remake), E.T., Mad Max Road Warrior, Star Trek The Wrath of Khan (best of the trek movies), Fast Times At Ridgemont High, Cat People (good remake), Tron (the original), Pink Floyd The Wall, Rocky 3 (best Rocky Sequel), Officer And A Gentleman, Conan the Barbarian, My Favorite Year, Tootsie, 48 hours, Victor/ Victoria, Gandhi, Sophie's Choice, First Blood, Night Shift, Last American Virgin, The Dark Crystal, The Verdict, Creepshow, Annie, The Beastmaster, Dinner. I don't think I need to go any further, Though I could.

You gotta love the 80's kid adventure films, back when they were so not kid friendly, unlike this day and age where PG and even PG-13 movies have just become way too PC

Let us not forget "The Year of Living Dangerously" this is any bit as good as Shawshank. Yes 1994 had some excellent quality films but 1982 had much more than 1994. It was shear amazing that a year had such films that were of higher quality and were either excellent or very good. Never may we see such a year where it seemed that Hollywood was on top of it's game. I have to say The Beastmaster being an exception to that list but it was a low budget spoof on Conan type films and was entertaining and just silly. Last American Virgin was also funny but no Fast Times which still stands as the high school teen movie and is an excellent/quality comedy. I don't believe Rocky 3 is the best Rocky sequel (IMPO) but still good and entertaining. "Best Little Whorehouse In Texas", "Missing" and "Fanny and Alexander" were smaller films, but guess what, they to are actually very good or excellent. It just seemed that so many films from 1982 where just excellent or good. And what can we say about ...more

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, Amelie, Spirited Away, Donnie Darko, and Monsters, Inc. are some of the movies made this year. - booklover1

2002 is one of the worst years ever. 2001 had Donnie Darko. I think that pretty much sums it up.

The Contenders

11 1967
12 2012

We had in 2012 Earth's mightiest heroes under one roof, the return of 007, the farewell of Batman and the welcome arrival of the Star Crossed Lovers from District 12.

The odds were definitely in the favour of Jennifer Lawrence in 2012.

Django Unchained - need I say more?

Also had tdkr, avengers, linchon, silver lingings playbook Argo, life of pi, shanti unchained and everything else said
