What's your favorite year for movies that you experienced?

I'm more or less asking which one you think is the best as far as a year where you actually saw them that year. A year you experienced. For me, the last great year was 1998. I think that's when I went to the theater the most. There were so many great movies and favorites of mine, a good mix of drama and blockbusters.

Saving Private Ryan
A Bug's Life
The Truman Show
A Civil Action
Shakespeare in Love
Elizabeth
A Simple Plan
The Mask of Zorro
Rush Hour
Gods and Monsters
American History X
Pleasantville
The Thin Red Line
Out of Sight

1999 is probably my second favorite.

Probably 87, 88, or 89. I went to the movies once or twice a week in those years, so I saw a ton of good movies. I also saw two tons of crappy crapburgers.

I have fond memories of 1989, 1994, and 1999. 1988, 1997, and 1998 weren't too shabby either. I haven't really been excited by years in recent memory, though there were some really good films here and there.

Wow, I've abused way too many substances to even think about this, it's hurting my brain.

Whatever year they started the PG-13 rating...I remember I saw a ton of movies that summer.

I'm almost with you, but 94 was tops in my book.
Lion King
Shawshank Redemption
Forrest Gump
Stargate
True Lies
Speed
Pulp Fiction
Clerks
Leon
the Crow
Interview with the Vampire
Natural Born Killers
In the Mouth of Madness (guilty pleasure)
the Ref
PCU (another guilty pleasure)
legends of the Fall
Maverick
Ed Wood

If you like Jim Carey:
Dumb & Dumber
the Mask
Ace Ventura

And on TV:
The Stand

With the exception of the JC flicks I saw all but 3 of these at the theater plus another dozen mediocre ones not listed (City Slickers 2, Disclosure, Specialist, etc.)

94-95 is a back to back knockout in my book. Hasn't been matched yet.
