A Random Blog of Everything I like
Andy of Fandango Groovers Movie Blog held another interesting blogathon. At first, I was a bit doubtful to join in because it required a lot of time to do some research.
But…the fun of movie list got into me more than the troublesome of searching for the right movie.
Here are the rules:
I was born in 1977 (now everyone knows that I am quite old 😉 ) and here are the movies in my life:
1977: Starwars: A new hope. I watched this movie somewhere in late80s, I was surprise to know that that kind of special effect was made in late 70s. Up to today, I still enjoy this old series of Star Wars far more than the new ones.
1978: Grease. The story was simple but the music was timeless. My all time favorite musical movie.
1979: Alien. Could anyone blame me for liking alien too much? It was awesome then and it is still awesome now.
1980: Starwars: The Empire Strikes back.
1981: Indiana Jones: Raiders of the lost ark. I adore Indy since my teen days till now. Too bad the last one had to involve alien in it.
1983: Starwars : Return of the Jedi.
1984: Terminator. I love Terminator!! One of the best sci-fi movies I have ever seen.
1985: Back to The Future. The first is the best out of three.
1987: The Lost Boys. I know this is not the best movie in 1987, but it left such great memory on me.
1988: Grave of Fireflies. I am Studio Ghibli fan. That explain ALL Ghibli animation in this list!
1989: Tjoet Nja’ Dhien. This movie is a historical movie that tells the life of female warrior against the tyranny of Dutch government in our country. I regard this movie as the best movie Indonesia has ever produced.
1990: Edward Scissorhands. I don’t remember any other movies from this year but this movie. this was an odd but fun movie.
1991: Terminator: The Judgment Day.
1992: Batman Returns. All the stars in this Batman franchise are my favorite actors/actress.
1993: Jurassic Park. This was one difficult year. I have so many movie that I like, I finally chose Jurassic Park as it awed me so much at that time.
1994: Speed. This movie is one of Keanu’s best…and the movie that made me in love with the man
1995: Se7en. Although I don’t like Brad Pitt, I truly enjoy this movie. Very thrilling with unexpected ending. The casts were also awesome, Freeman and Spacey.
1996: Thinner. Watching this movie was the beginning of my love toward the great Mr. Stephen King.
1997: Princess Mononoke. This is the longest anime I have ever seen, however it didn’t make me bored.i was fascinated with the world in this great anime.
1998: Ringu & Saving Private Ryan. I couldn’t just pick one movie because I love both Ringu and Saving Private Ryan. Ringu is my all time favorite horror movie and SPR is my all time favorite war movie.
1999: The Matrix. The matrix awed me in so many ways, the best sci-fi movie that stood against time. No movie had yet defeated this movie from its throne as the best sci-fi movie EVER.
2000: Cast Away. Cast Away is the first movie that opened my eyes toward the beauty of one man character movies. Tom Hanks was incredible in this movie
2001: The Lord of The Rings : Fellowship of The Rings. I always judge movies which adapted from books, this trilogy represent the book really well. I have no objection at all toward the trilogy.
2002: The Lord of the Rings : The Two Towers.
2003: Spirited Away. The animation that turned me into a Ghibli Studio fan.
2004: Shaun of The Dead. Can zombie be any funnier than this one?
2005: Breakfast on Pluto. The movie that started my obsession over Cillian Murphy. He was brilliant in this movie.
2006: The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. Another amazing animation from Japan.
2007: Sunshine. A mission to save the earth that didn’t end happily like Armageddon. I love the story and Cillian Murphy looks gorgeous as a scientist.
2008: The Day The Earth Stood Still. Some people said the movie is boring, but I fully got the moral message of the movie.
2009: District 9. The best movie in 2009…no question about it. This movie makes me eager to see more movies by Sharlto Copley.
2010: Inception. Just like D-9, I dare to say that this movie is the best in 2010…the first sci-fi movie that can awed me as much as The Matrix.
Looking forward to see everyone’s list 🙂
