    My final list of my favorite films for each year is below. Films that also won the Oscar are in bold. Again, keep in mind that I haven't seen all the top films for every year, (especially recent years). I felt I couldn't rank them unless I'd seen them in their entirety. it's not a list of my 91 favorite films: there are films that didn't win in some years that I would rate ahead of films that won in other years. And they are just my opinion, which doesn't out-rank anyone else's. That's why I'm inviting you to make your own list or to simply list the substitutions you'd make.

    I really enjoyed your “Steves” list. Gave me something to look forward to reading everyday. Hope to see more lists like this in the future. Maybe TV series next?

    I have so many DVD collections and watch so many sporting events and old movies that there have been very few series TV shows I've watched since about the 1990's. What I might do, instead of a year by year thing is a top ten for each genre. I'd mostly be supplying old shows and people who watch the shows from recent years more than i have can add their views. I'm not going to start immediately but I'll get back to this in a while.

    That'd be great. I'm like you in that I enjoy more of the older shows and there aren't that many recent shows I've watched on a regular basis.
