The challenge is to go through your life and list the best movie from each year of your life. You can have a tie once per decade.
I found this idea challenging and interesting. What I found the most interesting is how little interest I had in most of the movies that came out just before I was born, but I have a strong affection for movies from my early childhood. I wonder if that is common to most people who do this?
Anyway, here is my list. For the sake of anonymity, I have started my list with the decade of my birth rather than my birth year (maybe).
A few observations on my own list:
-5 movies directed by Steven Spielberg
-4 movies directed by Christopher Nolan
-3 movies directed by Peter Jackson
-3 movies directed by George Lucas
-3 movies directed by Kenneth Brannagh
-only 4 movies are comedies (not to be confused with drama-dies)
-only 9 are tragedies (in the sense that they do not have a "happy ending")
-4 of the 9 Star Wars Saga movies are represented
-8 of the movies are superhero films (this counts Joker as well), 5 DC, 3 Marvel 3 of them are about Superman, 3 have Bruce Wayne as a character
-2 movies based on Shakespeare plays
-2 movies not in English
-only 1 Western
-only 1 Musical
-only 1 Animated movie
-3 movies involve time travel
-only 4 of the movies have a woman as the lead.
-7 Harrison Ford movies
