I'm making the most definitive list of favorite movies ever.

For every year, I'm listing every movie I've seen and compare them all to each other asking one question; Which movie do I like more. Movies that score in the 80th percentile or higher, advance to the next round: Favorite of the Decade. After each Decade is done, an All Time list will be formed.

Favoritest Movies of 1999

We used to make Top 5 or Top 10 lists talking about the "Best" movies of the year.  I can't figure out what "Best" means anymore.  I've heard to many critics say things along the line of 'while not my favorite, it's one of the best..."  Well, if it wasn't your favorite, it must have done something wrong.  And then I see the poster above.  I was not a foregone conclusion that this would be my favorite movie of 1999.  But in every match up, it would win or split points with its competition.  I saw it 21 times in the theater.  I'd pop it in the VCR every Sunday when I worked at Comics Universe.  For all of its flaws, it's still got a bit of that Star Wars magic: rewatchability.  A tiny bit.  Okay the 1983, 1980, and 1977 lists are a race for second place at this point.
