    Empire 30: Vote For Your Favourite Films Of The Last 30 Years

    Pick your favourite film for each year. By all means put them in here too so we can all belittle your choices or praise you for being a film aficionado.

    Don't feel like you have to put them all in but if you can nail down one per year you've don well.
    So far I'm on...

    1989 - Batman
    1990 - Home Alone
    1991 - The Silence of the Lambs
    1992 - Batman Returns
    1993 - Jurassic Park
    1994 - The Lion King (tough year to pick from)
    1995 - Seven (tough year to pick from)
    1996 - Scream (tough year to pick from) - Purely for Wes Craven creating the "Teen Slasher" genre
    1997 - LA Confidential - I couldn't vote for Titanic
    1998 - Saving Private Ryan
    1999 - The Matrix - Still an incredible film. I refuse to believe there are sequels.
    2000 - Gladiator - Predictable shout, but still a great film.
    2001 - The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
    2002 - 28 Days Later
    2003 - Monster - It would be easy to pick Kill Bill Pt 1
    2004 - SAW - I wouldn't usually pick a horror film, but the twist in SAW was very well done. It's just a shame they've ruined it by doing a ton more
    2005 - Batman Begins
    2006 - V for Vendetta (UK release 2006)
    2007 - Stardust - Neil Gaiman does quality work. I thought No Country for Old Men was good, but I enjoyed that more.
    2008 - The Dark Knight
    2009 - Zombieland
    2010 - The King's Speech
    2011 - Captain America: The First Avenger
    2012 - The Avengers
    2013 - 12 Years A Slave (tough year to pick from)
    2014 - The LEGO Movie (really tough year to pick from) - I make absolutely no apologies for this.
    2015 - The Hateful Eight
    2016 - Deadpool
    2017 - Thor Ragnarok
    2018 - Avengers: Infinity War
    2019 - Joker - I have a good feeling about it. Not easy to pick as it's only July but there's my shouts!

    A sad indictment of the film industry when so many comic book movies make your list at the end there.

    I and millions of others enjoy them. They're very well executed. They have depth and are far more than "whizz-bang", thank you John Humphreys.

    That... is why you fail

    It is like doing an 80s list and only using Arnie and Sly films. When you always have to rely on time travel to dig yourself out of a hole, well, I would argue they aren't that well-executed or deep...

    Well, I was trying to be polite... ;)

    I think I’ve seen 2 films at the cinema that haven’t been aimed at kids in the last5 years so I’m not taking part.

    Forest Gump is a great film, no question.
    I remember going to see The Lion King at Darlington when I was 8 (I think) and thought it was amazing. It's a stunning theatre show too.

    Again it's only my opinion. I see none of you fuckers have had the balls to put your picks up yet.

    EDIT: Thank you @I Stand Alone for taking part!

    Probably because no one can really be arsed as the cricket is on the radio.
    I’ll guess the last 30 years won’t have any superhero films in my list if that’s any help to ya

    I'm perfectly happy thanks. It seems you're quite a miserable fucker though. Always happy to chime in with something derogatory but contributes nothing useful or positive yourself.
    You're basically a drain with a keyboard.

    Now stop being a grump and pick your films :lol:

    I'm sorry my posting extends beyond denouncing the Fail and regurgitating whatever tripe comes up on your twitter feed on here.
