A Year in Film: My Favorites of 1991


1991, was really a fertile period for movies for me. I started working in a video store around that time(a job that I would continue on with in one form or another for basically the next 10 years) and I was watching movies a lot. VHS was still big and I had started collecting tapes a few years prior with my first purchase being THE TERMINATOR. I was a huge fan of the film and couldn't have been more excited for the sequel to hit theaters. There was quite a nice smattering of different stuff in '91. An excellent mix of arthouse, action and silliness. That BARTON FINK, DELICATESSEN, SLACKER, DEFENDING YOUR LIFE, COOL AS ICE and HUDSON HAWK all came out in the same 12 months is pretty spectacular.

Delicatessen was the film that got me to make a list of every film I'd seen; I'd rented it 4 times, each time thinking I'd never seen it and then instantly forgetting it. I'm having trouble remembering Afraid of the Dark; I think maybe Alone in the Dark has me confused.

I certainly couldn't make a better list for the year, though!

Wow... awesome collection of movies. It's like a trip down memory lane. Glad to see Showdown in Little Tokyo on there. It's a personal fave.

Steve- that's pretty funny. I find that more and more lately I'll watch a film and I personally can't always recall if I've seen it. Stuff that it's been 20 plus years I seem to be a bit cloudier on myself.

VV-Yeah that was a favorite for me during my Dolph phase as a youth!
