    These were my #2's for each of their respective years (yes, including all of the ones in 1995 which was, I think, the hardest year to choose for me as well). Although, ultimately going with Reservoir Dogs over Glengarry Glen Ross in 1992 did made my heart hurt.

    Some years are super hard to pick just one. And as I'm doing this I feel like I'm leaving out some personal favorites that weren't as critically acclaimed b/c they're harder to find when researching online.

    Super underrated film in general. It's one of those that whenever I mention it most people have no idea what I'm talking about.

    Some of you guys make me feel old. I just went through each year and picked my favorite instead of what I thought was the best. Some of the years were harder to pick a favorite than other. I know some of these movies are considered bad by a lot of people, but I just tried to stick with what the original post said and to pick your favorite movie from each year.
