1. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012)
I would put The Hunger Games but I already know that this movie is going to surpass it so why not put it now. I'm so excited for this movie that I can't be excited for anything else because they pale in comparison. Not even Avengers or Batman. That's right, I said it.

And now that I've seen it I know it to be true. Every bit what I wanted it to be and more. Can it be time for the sequel now?

2. Thor (2011)
An intersting story with beautiful fight scenes and both a heroic main character and a compelling villain.

3. Inception (2010)
The most beautifully executed mind-fuck movie I've ever seen. I had no trouble with the concept and loved the open ending.

4. Star Trek (2009)
Sooo, maybe my mom was a trekkie, and maybe I grew up watching Next Generation and Deep Space Nine but that doesn't make me a trekkie myself. No, that came with the absolutely passionate love affair I had with this movie. I loved everything about it, and it didn't hurt that Zachary Quinto was so amazing as spock.

5. Wanted (2008)
This movie is all about being totally over the top and unapologetic. I love action movies, in case you haven't figured that out yet and this one does it all. Explosions, chase scenes, curving bullets, train rides, witty banter, and (although I'm not a fan) Angelina Jolie. James McAvoy was so much better than I could have imagined. Love it.

6. The Lookout (2007)
When I was a kid I was totally obsessed with JGL. I might still be. But this was a totally new kind of role for him and I loved it. He plys the broken boy so well that it was nice to see him put himself back together to save the day.

7. Lucky Number Slevin (2006)
If you haven't seen this movie then do so right now. I love everything about it. Each character is well written and well acted. Every little detail is important. Visually it's stunning. Storyline is perfect.

8. Serenity (2005)
When Firefly was cancelled I was one of those people who was heartbroken. I loved that cast. They had amazing chemistry together. It carried forward into the movie which finally answered most of the questions the show didn't get the chance to answer. I still want to know more about Shepherd Book though.

9. Speak (2004)
I hate Kristen Stewart, but in this movie, for once, her annoying little mannerisms almost work. Speak, by Laurie Halse Anderson is one of my favorite books. I think that if I didn't love the book I would not have liked this movie at all.

10. Underworld (2003)
Vampires, werewolves, betrayals and the ever popular love story. This movie is most of my favorite things with a leather clad Kate Beckinsale to boot.

11. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002)
Ohhh, Harry Potter. How I love thee. And this one is possibly my favorite.

12. A Knight's Tale (2001)
I already knew Heath Ledger from Roar, but this movie cemented him as my favorite young hollywood hottie.

13. Center Stage (2000)
So, I was 16 the year this movie came out and I loved it then and love it now. It's more than just a dance movie. It deals with real issues, most notably Maureen's.

14. The Matrix (1999)
Talk about a mind-fuck movie. For months afterwards I thought that one day someone would come to wake me up so I could start living for real. The concept was just that incredible for me.

Who doesn't love a movie where Bruce Willis saves the world. I know I do.

16. Titanic (1997)
I was the perfect age for Titianic when it came out, 13 and hormonal. I loved every heart-breaking minute of it and saw it 6 times in the theaters.

17. Mission: Impossible (1996)
Ethan Hunt was the first character I ever had a crush on. It wasn't Tom Cruise, although the fact that he was pretty didn't hurt, it was Ethan. His charisma and intelligence and bamf abilities. Loved him then and still love him now (although I like to pretend the 2nd movie never happened).

It was a cute movie, and from here on in my tastes get younger and younger.

21. Death Becomes Her (1992)
I grew up in a very Bruce loving family and this movie is very un-brucelike. Love it.

22. My Girl (1991)
As a child I didn't fully understand this movie. I just knew I liked it and it made me cry. Now it makes me sob because I can fully understand everything that happens.

I haven't seen this movie since I was a kid so pitifully the only thing I can remember is that his daughter chokes on a hot dog at the end and almost dies.

What movie would a one-year old like, no clue, but I like this one now so on the list it goes.

29. Ghostbusters (1984)
Technically, I was only a very small infant that couldn't have enjoyed this movie so I chose one that I know I liked as a kid when I was older.

Loved the idea, I'd even like to make my own if you don't mind :D

Go right on ahead. Just let me know when you finish yours so I can see what you choose.
Posted: 2 years, 2 months ago at May 7 11:11
Yep, might have to rip this off. Well done!

And while it's too early to say, there's a chance we share The Brave Little Toaster for 1987 :)
Posted: 2 years, 2 months ago at May 7 13:15
yes, it's really a good idea
Posted: 2 years, 1 month ago at Jun 19 4:24
Really an incredible idea........ I loved this list!!!!!!!!!!
Posted: 1 year, 6 months ago at Jan 20 21:35
I agree - excellent idea!! Great choices on the films, too.
I've seen all but three and enjoyed every single one! As for The Hobbit...how could anyone even suggest that the Avengers or Batman were better? The subject material alone outdoes them by a mile and the Rings trilogy was (in every way) epic...why wouldn't The Hobbit be every bit as much? ;D

as others have said - great idea for a list - I have started my own version here where I am working my way through films from my year of birth until the present day... http://www.listal.com/list/1-movie-each-year-my (shameless self promotion over)

Curiously I found it hard to find a GOOD film to actually watch for the first few years - 1 because I have seen practically all the obvious choices and 2 I am not that keen on old movies...Their pacing seem too slow and graphically/visually they are not that great
Posted: 4 months ago at Mar 23 0:45
This is an amazing idea and I am in the process of working on my own version of it. However I find it pretty hard to choose only one movie so I may teak it a bit. Your list is really great!
