As mentioned, it's the 10 Year Anniversary.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Werd. During the course of the next few months, we should all re-watch some of the movies from our collective favorite year and see how they hold up.

Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

I don't stefen....but you don't mind.....And also, let me just say this...I was dissapointed in Richard Gere, 'Runaway bride' nearly cost him his career. Thats right bitches, I like to rhyme.
The Beatles know Jesus Christ has returned to Earth and is in Los Angeles.

Hey you guys, you know what an underrated 1999 movie is?

Pushing Tin. I remember it being awesome. Has anyone seen it recently?

it is interesting to go back to these movies ten years later and see which stand up.

sadly, i think magnolia as beautiful as it is doesn't stand up to what i originally thought, i just got finished watching it.  it's kinda sloppy.  when i first saw it i gave it an easy 10/10, stating that it was my favorite of his movies.  now i think it's one of my least favorites with a solid 8/10.  i think boogie nights and there will be blood are far superior.

the four movies that i think still stand up are toy story 2, eyes wide shut, the limey, and being john malchovich.  with special note to BJM, i would say is not only the best of the year but firmly a contender for the decades' best film.
the one last hit that spent you...

Fucking aye on the BJM love. That movie is easily one of the best of the decade and holds up well over time. Another one is All About My Mother.

Let's revisit this thread.

Are we still happy with our top ten list now that we're a little older? (Seriously.) Or does your best movies of the 90s list look different now? Maybe you've gone back and seen something which WAS on your list and don't love it quite as much anymore. Or you've seen something else since and gained a greater appreciation for it. I know I've seen Eyes Wide Shut since and it would make my list now but wouldn't have in 2000.

Not embarrassed by the top of my list, but as you go down it definitely gets sketchy. For example, Run Lola Run doesn't hold the same place in my heart. I barely remember The Red Violin.

I need to rewatch a few, like The Limey (which I remember having one of the best opening songs ever), but I think this is about right...


1. Magnolia
2. Eyes Wide Shut
3. Being John Malkovich
4. Titus
5. Fight Club
6. All About My Mother
7. The Straight Story
8. The Blair Witch Project
9. Princess Mononoke
10. Three Kings
"Hunger is the purest sin"

I don't have an old list to compare it to, but I think I feel pretty much the same now as I did then. 1999 was the best year for movies ever and I could have easily made this a top 20. I'd like to teach a film theory class exclusively about this year.

1. Magnolia
2. Three Kings
3. Fight Club
4. The Matrix
5. Eyes Wide Shut
6. Being John Malkovich
7. Bringing Out The Dead
8. The Insider
9. Any Given Sunday
10. Go

I can't believe I never posted a list here. Such a good year.

Okay, my list is definitely different than it would have been sixteen years ago:

1. Magnolia
2. Eyes Wide Shut
3. Fight Club
4. The Insider
5. The Iron Giant
6. The Matrix
7. Being John Malkovich
8. Election
9. The Talented Mr. Ripley
10. Galaxy Quest

I miss 1999... so many good movies. 

Magnolia
Fight Club
Waking the Dead
Three Kings
The Limey
Dreamlife of Angels
The End of the Affair
Go
American Beauty
The Million Dollar Hotel  (might've been 2000)

I stand by everything on this list, including the fact that Million Dollar Hotel might have been 2000.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

1. The Matrix
2. Toy Story 2
3. The Mummy
4. My Neighbors the Yamadas
5. Fight Club
6. Ame Agaru
7. Magnolia
8. Being John Malkovich
9. The Iron Giant
10. The Insider

Eyes Wide Shut just misses out today.

9. Princess Mononoke

I consider this a 97 film. I did notice it on Ebert's 99 list. American releases and all. Otherwise, this would be right near the top.
