would go further but I really haven't seen 'enough of each year of the 90's back to make a ten list but am 'in the process of' making a 100 of the 90's that I'll post, and then just prob. a 10 of the 80's, and then my number one of each year back from then on bc that's all I can come up with. I spend most of my time watching every single freaking new movie that comes out so I don't have time to really catch up on the classics/older movies I've always wanted to see--I believe I have made my way back to 98 of seeing all that I really really wanted to see and it has taken me a whole year just to do that, feeding in and out of the 'new releases.'

With its renewed popularity and the frequency of people posting "Best of ####" lists elsewhere, I've decided to *STICKY* this thread at least for awhile.

Just wanted to point out, in case there was any confusion, that this thread is not merely for people who want to post a list of their favorite movie from, say 1930-2000. If you just feel like posting a "Best Movies of 1988" list, this is the place for it and that is what the thread was designed for. I want to encourage those who have many lists and those with only one to both post here, it's kind of a catch-all.
