My opinion of the best films of 1999. Keep in mind I have only seen 131 films from '99, so there are still plenty of films I need to see.
My opinion of the best films of 1998. Keep in mind I have only seen 133 films from '98, so there are still plenty of films I need to see.
My opinion of the best films of 1997. Keep in mind I have only seen 155 films from '97, so there are still plenty of films I need to see.
My opinion of the best films of 1996. Keep in mind I have only seen 202 films from '96, so there are still plenty of films I need to see.
This list will probably be forever changing... The top 250 films of last decade according to me... Please note there are still thousands of films I have yet to see.

As the list title suggests. Though I am trying to limit this list to purely Australian produced films without heavy outsider involvement. So films like "Babe" will not be included.

All the movies I saw for a first time in March 2013, a total of only 11 films. Best Film: Cloud Atlas Least Film: The Omen [Remake]
Only 12 films for April. Finally got to see a couple of classics from my favourite directors, namely Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen and Charlie Chaplin, and also the latest from another fave Todd Solondz. Very impressed with newish films Paul, Seven Psychopaths and Arbitrage (which includes possibly Richard Gere's finest performance to date). Finally another modern masterpiece in End of Watch as well, first recent 10/10 film I've seen since Django Unchained. And a little underwhelmed (but still liked) by Anna Karenina, The Sapphires and especially Looper because I was REALLY wanting to see that one but one too many holes in script and the destruction of Gordon-Levitt's face to look like a young Bruce Willis was way too distracting to fully delve into. Also Mental... Don't really know what to make of it, didn't really like it at first but I must say it really endeared itself to me only an Aussie movie could, so some really crazy bizarre stuff but likeable. Overall a good month as I didn't see a single film under a 7/10.
Quite a prolific movie-watching month for myself. 24 films in total, one masterpiece and a couple of 6's but the rest fairly solid 7's and 8's. Some notable directors include Peter Jackson, Fritz Lang, John Hughes, Wes Anderson and Ron Howard's debut feature film.
A very slow month for me after a very hectic May... But I did get to watch my 44th film from Alfred Hitchcock which is always a big deal to me, only a few more to go now... and I got to watch my 29th and 30th Woody Allen film. Two of the finest to directors to have ever lived and very prolific too which is always a bonus.
So July turned into an even slacker month for me than June. I managed 7 movies in June compared to only 5 in July. I guess you gotta have a break sometimes. I did get to see a couple of noteworthy films though, such as Todd Solondz's debut and Warren Beatty's last of his 4 directorial efforts.
Another slacker month, 3 in a row I know, but hopefully will pick it up this month. In August though, I did manage to add an Altman, Raimi and Allen film to my list of movies and most excitedly I saw Scorsese's The King of Comedy, which now means I have seen EVERY feature-length Scorsese film. Onto the list...
A much better month for me, a total of 19 films I watched. The best film I saw was Holy Motors. The least was Grown Ups.
I ended up seeing 15 films in October, but 11 of them were in the last week, so I was slacking off a bit. This month there weren't too many notable directors (Woody Allen, Tony Scott and Brian De Palma the only big names) but a number of films that I've been meaning to see that I finally did.
My rankings for the following list;
2. Dressed to Kill
3. Hannah and Her Sisters
4. Risky Business
5. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
9. The Muppets
10. The Grey
11. Lars and the Real Girl
12. Liberal Arts
13. Purple Rain
14. Real Steel
After slacking it for the first 8 days of the month I got into it and ended up watching 19 films for the remaining 22 days. Added 2 films each from Woody Allen, Brian De Palma and Clint Eastwood to my watched list. Other notable directors include Jean-Pierre Melville, William Wyler and Ridley Scott. The best film I saw was Frailty, Bill Paxton's under-seen gem from 2002. The least film I saw was So Undercover, a Miley Cyrus vehicle. And R.I.P. Paul Walker.
