Movie bloggers across the blogosphere are taking part in the new (and very cool) meme over at the Fandango Groovers blog, and of course, I had to join. It's simple...you name your favourite movie from each year starting with the year you were born. This is easy for me, as I haven't lived very long!
1995 - Toy Story
Perhaps the best animated series of all time started the year I was born. I am so thankful for this movie!
Runner up: Se7en
1996 - William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet
This film introduced me to Baz Luhrmann, one of my favourite directors. Some may find the visuals to be a bit much, but I love this movie.
1997 - Life is Beautiful
This movie is so funny, yet it is so sad. And it's a war movie, too. As the title suggests, it is indeed beautiful.
Runner up: Titanic
1998 - A Bug's Life
Fun fact: This was the first movie I remember seeing at the movies.
Runner up: Following
1999 - Fight Club
I think this would be most people's picks for 1999.
Runner Up: American Beauty
2000 - Memento
Christopher Nolan + backwards story-telling = My favourite movie of all time.
Runner Up: Requiem for a Dream
2001 - Moulin Rouge!
I love lavish movies. More so when they are made by Baz Luhrmann and Ewan McGregor is singing.
Runner Up: Shrek
2002 - 28 Days Later...
Probably the best apocalypse movie I've seen. Cheers Danny Boyle!
Runner Up: About a Boy
2003 - Kill Bill Vol. 1

This is probably the movie which I have seen the most. It just never gets old!

2005 - Brokeback Mountain
I haven't seen this film in five years, but I remember it being one of the most beautiful things I'd ever seen.
Runner Up: Batman Begins
2006 - The Devil Wears Prada
The clothes. The Streep. The funnies.
Runner Up: Little Miss Sunshine
2007 - Juno
"Oh, you think you're so special because you get to play Picture Pages up there? Well, my five year old daughter could do that and let me tell you, she's not the brightest bulb in the tanning bed. So why don't you go back to night school in Mantino and learn a real trade."
Runner Up: Waitress
2008 - The Dark Knight
The day that I saw this film was a day which I remember better than any other day.
Runner Up: Let the Right One In
