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 1988

So, I was working on this list a few days ago, and looking up a movie I've always enjoyed  The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, to honestly put it, it's been a few years since I've seen it, and I forgot who played the title role.  He was familiar, on the tip of my tongue, and in something else... but I couldn't summon the memory.  Nothing makes the brain more feeble or just plain lazy than Googling something rather than forcing the brain to actually recall the information.  Why think?  Wikipedia is right there in the search bar.  Oh, of course, John Neville was Baron Munchausen!  Well, I just couldn't put the face to name since he was wearing that prosthetic nose, and all that make-up... and now this morning, John Neville has just passed away.  So, to John Neville, the world wasn't tired of you.
