3 movies rated 10/10 in one year!!!?

My favorite is "The Last Crusade", but I only rated it 8/10

For me, 10/10 means that it is the best movie ever, so from 1892 to 2019, I have only one rated 10/10.

I've rated several movies 10/10 myself- to me I consider them my favourite movies, they may not be perfect but I still love them.

You put together a very good list - kudos. 'Tough vote with Crimes & Misdemeanors and Sex, Lies, & Videotape. Still, I'd have to go with the majestic Do the Right Thing.

Thanks and that's a good pick! It was a tough one to make, more so than the 1979 list, since there were so many good movies from that year.

Why are you making these specific years, will you do 1999, 2009 and 2019 next?

Mainly for anniversaries (e.g. 40th, 30th, etc.). 1979 might be my favourite year for movies with two of my all time favourite movies coming out that year- Alien and Apocalypse Now. 1989 was also a pretty great year with many huge blockbusters and classics coming out.

I would love to do 1999 but there's this poll which I feel has kind of already done it- 1999: An Existential Journey. Granted they only do movies with the theme of an existential journey but I feel like all the most popular movies from that year are already in that poll.

I think the 'My Left Foot' and the 'Last Crusade' are both very good films, but there's only one film from 1989 which I gave a '10' and that was 'Dead Poets Society'
