Forrest Gump, The Shawshank Redemption, Pulp Fiction, The Lion King, Leon: The Professional, Dumb and Dumber
Shawshank Redemption, Forrest Gump, Pulp Fiction, The Mask, True Lies, Dumb and Dumber, Speed - all in 1 year! My favorite year for moviesV 5 Comments
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
Fight Club, The Matrix, American Beauty, and The Green Mile are some of the movies made this year. - booklover1
Fight club, matrix, American beauty, the green mile, the sixth sense good year for movies
Gone with the Wind
Wizard of Oz
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
Goodbye Mr. Chips

To name a few... unbelievable year.
I am 75 and have been a movie fan for years. This was the best year ever when one considers acting used to be the most important part of a good movie.
No other year compares in my mind. 70 years later a lot of these movies are still held up as the greatest classics of all time
So many movies that year set the standard for decades. First color movie.V 1 Comment
My personal timeline:
2006-2008: Best Years Of My Life
2010: Was Bad too
2011: It was okay (Nothing special)
2012: Again, It was okay (Nothing special for me)
2013: Horrible HORRIBLE year for me, where do I begin exactly and how do I begin? I got braces, Frozen was released then, I had a very crappy and bad school year (I could have switched back then), the teachers were mean back then, I was introduced to violent behaviors, my life was completely screwed up and destroyed, Plus... CRINGWORTHY FANBASES! I was glad that I left the GoAnimate community to move on to Flash Animation
2014: Very Bad, but improved later on
2015; Eh, It was okay!
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.
Skyfall, Marvel's The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, The Hunger Games and Life of Pi

Inglorious bastards and the hurt locker are one of the best movies of the 21 century, and well, up, avatar, district 9, hangover and star trek are very cool too
Avatar, The Hangover and Sherlock Holmes
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.
Spirited Away, Shrek, Monsters Inc
Almost too many great movies to count. Just to name a few, Mulholland Drive, Donnie Darko, LOTR: Fellowship of the Ring, Ocean's Eleven, Amélie, The Royal Tenenbaums, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Spirited Away, Monster's Inc., and Shrek.
Birdman, Whiplash, Boyhood, Ex Machina, Grand Budapest Hotel, Gone Girl, The Imitation Game, The Theory of Everything, Nightcrawler, Foxcatcher, Selma, Fury, and Interstellar for the cinema fans.
But action fans weren't left wanting either with Edge of Tomorrow, Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America Winter Soldier, X Men Days of Future Past, and The Equalizer.
And on top of that it even delivered great animated films: Big Hero 6, Lego Movie, and How To Train Your Dragon 2. And it even had good romance and comedy movies.
This was a year that delivered near perfection in all aspects. Unquestionably the best year in film.
Boyhood, nightcrawler, great budapest hotel, birdman, the Lego movie, guardians of the galaxy, whiplash, dawn of the planet of the apes, xmen days of the future past, gone girl, edge of tomorrow, very cool year

All of those movies went on to have numerous sequels.. plus Sixteen Candles, The Neverending Story, 2010, Splash, Purple Rain, Romancing the Stone, Footloose, The Natural.. all classics in their own right... plus Children of the Corn, Top Secret, Amadeus, The Last Starfighter, to name a few others that stick out... 1984 was hands down the most memorable year of movies in my lifetime & I was born in 1978. The top movies of this year all hold up pretty well 30-something years later.
Ghostbusters, The Terminator, Indiana Jones and the last crusade, Nightmare on elm street, Beverly Hills cop, and Gremlins

Return of the King and Curse of the Black Pearl
The pinnacle of the Silent Era was also the year it began to end. Sunrise, Seventh Heaven, The Jazz Singer, The General, and a bunch of other flicks are, despite the lack of dialog, totally watchable even with today's standards.
84 is a close second, however the lineup of movies this year is unmatched!
Nil By Mouth. End of discussion here really. But to bulk the claim...
Could go on!
Spectre, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Furious 7, Tomorrowland and Cinderella among others.
The revenant, spotlight, sicario, inside out, mad max fury road, the big short, bridge of spies, the martian, straight outa champton, it follows, anomalisa, brooklyn, carol, the danish girl, room, the force awakens, the hateful eight... can I need to say more?
Platoon, Big Trouble in Little China, Stand By Me, Aliens, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Lucas, The Fly, The Hitcher etc. Brilliant year, followed closely by 1962. - truckturner
