A movie for each year of my life

Movie list created by Deamuus Avatar

As the title says, it is "A movie for each year of my life" ! I have seen a lot of people doing this on youtube, i though it was a funny idea, so I decided to make my own list.
I'm really, really bad at doing reviews so, I have tried a little bit but not a big deal tho, trying to be better at english and mostly the grammar (Hopefully people understand my writing, haha) anyway a lot of the text taglines and trivia writing for each movie is copypaste from IMDB.com Thank you xD
Sort by: Showing 29 items
Decade: Rating: List Type:
1989: A mermaid princess makes a Faustian bargain with an unscrupulous sea-witch in order to meet a human prince on land.

Yaay! this is the year I was born, I know I didn't watch any movie that year, and I can't remember anything, but anyhow. I wanted to kick start this list with a kids movie, and since i'm a big Disney fan and Ariel is my favorite princess of all time, this was an obvious pick.

Fun Fact: Jim Carrey auditioned for the role of Prince Eric.

1990: A gentle man, with scissors for hands, is brought into a new community after living in isolation.

Okay i'm pretty sure I didn't watch this movie when I was 1 y/o. Actaully I think I was 8 or something, but again I love this movie so much.
And was one of those movie I thought should be on this list when I decided to make it! therefore here it is. It was also the first movie I ever saw with Johnny Depp and the first movie I saw directed by Tim Burton.. Yup! I'm a big Johnny and Burton fan xD

Fun fact: The idea for the movie was inspired by a drawing Tim Burton had done when he was a teenager.

1991: When Captain Hook kidnaps Peter Pans children, an adult Peter Pan must return to Neverland and reclaim his youthful spirit in order to challenge his old enemy.

If there is an actor i really love then it is Robin Willams (R.I.P you were such an inspiration for many.. 11 aug.2o14) I guess this movie wasn't one of his best, but i really liked it when i was a kid, i have seen this multiply times, and is one of the best Peter Pan movies I have ever seen.
It was funny and different and sure one of the best kids movie ever, if you ask me ofcause xD

Fun Fact: The young Peter Pan is played by Dustin Hoffman's son.

1992: After a simple jewelry heist goes terribly wrong, the surviving criminals begin to suspect that one of them is a police informant.

Fun Fact: Quentin Tarantino was originally going to play Mr. Pink, although he made a point of letting all the other actors audition for the part. When Steve Buscemi came in to read for it, Tarantino told him that he really wanted the part for himself, and that the only way Buscemi could possibly wrestle it from him was to do a killer audition. Buscemi duly complied.

1993: Jack Skellington, king of Halloween Town, discovers Christmas Town, but doesn't quite understand the concept.

Fun Fact: Some of the presents Jack delivers to the kids are nods to Tim Burton films. The snake looks like a Sandworm from Beetlejuice (1988), and the shrunken head is from the afterlife waiting room in the same film. The Cat and Duck are both featured in Batman Returns(1992) - the Cat as the mascot for Shreck's department store, the duck resembling a vehicle driven by the Penguin.

1994: Mathilda, a 12-year-old girl, is reluctantly taken in by Léon, a professional assassin, after her family is murdered. Léon and Mathilda form an unusual relationship, as she becomes his protégée and learns the assassin's trade.

Fun Fact: Natalie Portman's parents were extremely worried about the smoking scenes in the film, and before they allowed Natalie to appear, they worked out a contract with Luc Besson which had strict mandates as regards the depiction of smoking; there could only be five smoking scenes in the film, Portman would never be seen to inhale or exhale smoke, and Mathilda would give up during the course of the film. If one watches the film closely, one can see that all of these mandates were rigidly adhered to; there are precisely five smoking scenes, Portman is never seen inhaling or drawing on a cigarette, nor is she ever seen exhaling smoke, and Mathilda does indeed give up during the course of the film (in the scene outside the Italian restaurant, when Leon asks her to quit smoking, stop cursing, and not hang out with 'that guy. He looks like a weirdo.').

1995: In order to inherit his fed up father's hotel empire, an immature and lazy young man must repeat grades 1-12 all over again.

I just had to add a Adam Sandler movie to my list. I'm a big fan of his works. Yeah i don't get all the Adam Sandler hating going on, I agree that a lot of his new movies isn't as good as they use to be, and some of them sucks but come on. he is hilarious and funny,and Billy Madison was fantastic.

Fun Fact: This movie is Robert De Niro's favorite film.

1996: The aliens are coming and their goal is to invade and destroy Earth. Fighting superior technology, mankind's best weapon is the will to survive.

Fun Fact: The scene in which Will Smith drags the unconscious alien across the desert was filmed on the salt flats near Great Salt Lake in Utah. Smith's line, "And what the hell is that *smell*?" was unscripted. Great Salt Lake is home to tiny crustaceans called brine shrimp. When they die, the bodies sink to the bottom of the lake (which isn't very deep) and decompose. When the wind kicks up just right, the bottom mud is disturbed and the smell of millions of decaying brine shrimp can be very very bad. Apparently, nobody warned Will.

1997: A group of youngsters kidnap a respected Mafia figure, to use his contact to find one of the youngsters sister in exchange of him.

So it was either Starship Troopers or Suicide Kings. I think both movies was kind of underrated, maybe I’m wrong about that. But I really did like both of them, they’re great movies, and I can highly recommend them. Well, I think Suicide Kings should be mentions so, yeah thats pretty much it.

Fun Fact: Several different endings were filmed for this movie. The one seen in theaters is the one that tested the best. The others were included as special features on the DVD.

1998: Following the Normandy Landings, a group of U.S. soldiers go behind enemy lines to retrieve a paratrooper whose brothers have been killed in action.

Fun Fact: Mel Gibson and Harrison Ford were both considered for the role of Capt. John Miller, before Steven Spielberg decided on casting Tom Hanks.

1999: Fraternal twins set out to rid Boston of the evil men operating there while being tracked down by an FBI agent.

For people who know me pretty well, this isn't coming as a suprise for them. I have seen this awesome masterpiece plenty of times, and

They also claim that Bale actually wanted to drop down to 100 pounds, but that they would not let him go below 120 out of fear that his health could be in too much danger if he did. His diet consisted of one can of tuna and an apple per day. His 63-pound weight loss is said to be a record for any actor for a movie role. He regained the weight in time for his role in Batman Begins (2005).

Also Rapunzel is the first Disney Princess with supernatural powers.
