Good music year, bad movie year. More than the critics' choices, people were talking about Sharon Stone's legs, whether "Alien 3" was any good, the looks of Batman's villains, and jokes about the twist towards the end of "The Crying Game". Wear your X cap. Hoo-ha! You can't handle the truth!

"Pulp Fiction" was rather good, but not that great. I like Tarantino's other movies better. And I've met him.

What was so great about "The Grifters"? Fair movie, cool direction by Stephen Frears, but does not add up to much.

Not making the cut: "The Master", "Anna Karenina", "Beasts of the Sutherland Wild" (all had some good stuff, but not enough), "Holy Motors".

I keep on putting off watching "Au Revoir, Les Enfants", thus it does not appear on my list. Same goes for "Pathfinder" and "Street Smart". I don't get all the raves about "Moonstruck" (it was okay, but nothing special). "Broadcast News" puts me to sleep on every attempt. I liked "Fatal Attraction" but feel that it was overrated. My list does reflect that the 80s was the heyday of action and horror films.

Action movies that follow this formula: "Ridiculously well-prepared terrorists take over [x] with great ease. All is lost. Except that, little do they suspect, one man is hiding inside, whom is highly talented and clever, and fights back." Do not confuse with movies where a hero is sent into the situation.

The Oscar nominations are 3 months away, but one can already predict the likely nominees (if they don't flop like "The Counselor" or "The Fifth Estate"). When they were 5 nominees, Oscarologists would pick a major historical production (particularly bios, war movies, and about royals), a fave indie/art flick, a movie that looks/sounds British, a comedy (or musical), a respected blockbuster, and an "issues" movie. Pick 5 that match these 6, sneak in an unpopular flop from a producer known to manipulate the votes, and you have your list. Now, with about 9 nominees, new categories have been added: a 3-D film by a director who is popular with critics, a sports flick, an African-American issues flick, a Cannes favorite, a Toronto favorite, a Sundance favorite, and (if they try) a Pixar flick. Also keep note that certain actors, directors, and producers are popular with voters. Finally, the Academy develops a 3-7 year-cycle of trends in type of movie that wins. With that in mind...

Two (or more!) movies released within roughly the same year who were identical in premise, concept, plot, selling point, or an atypical movie subtype (e.g. "a movie about 18th century gardeners"). Not counting intentional porn parodies or Z-movie rip offs, e.g. Asylum movies.

Living, male actors only. I'm glad that I could recently cross off top picks Gary Oldman and Christopher Plummer. 2013 update: Hugh Jackman removed. 2014 update: Chiwetel Ejiofor and Matthew McConnaughey removed.
