A favorite movie for every year I've been alive!

March 29, 2017


 Good morning, everyone!  I haven’t had a lot of time for blogging in the last week, for the dedicated six of you who have been following me since I started this up.  The last week has been quite busy:  I’m going through the final proofreading stages of my next novel, THE INFINITE LEAGUE; I’m developing my first graphic novel in nearly five years----and I’m very proud to say that I was recently promoted at my casino job to floor supervisor.  It’s been an exciting time.


       Today, I wanted to participate in something I’ve seen my friends doing lately.  They’ve been listing their favorite movie for every year since they’ve been born. Sounds fun, and for a cinematic whore like me, I wanted to add my own list to the pile.  You know, just in case you care about that sort of thing.


       There are plenty of runner-ups, by the way.  I have over 750 movies in my collection, and there are some years that have a lot of winners.   But here are the absolute favorites movies I love to watch from every year that I was born.  


       Movies with an asterisk are films that I didn’t see and/or appreciate until years later.  I didn’t get to watch Blazing Saddles when I was seven, obviously.  But for some reason, at age six, The Poseidon Adventure was my absolutely favorite movie and would be until I saw Star Wars.  Never could explain why I loved that schlocky survival adventure movie so much. I watched it religiously every year when it was televised, I even had a set of View-Master reels.  Maybe it was the early John Williams score. Who knows.


        Anyhoozle, here’s the list.  Leave some comments if you want to share some of your favorites!
