Since it’s far too early for me to share my ten favorite films of 2010, let’s pass the time by reflecting on those films that are celebrating their 20th anniversary.

  1. Close-Up
  2. Miller’s Crossing
  3. The Unbelievable Truth
  4. Metropolitan
  5. The Tall Guy
  6. Edward Scissorhands
  7. Cry-baby
  8. The Hairdresser’s Husband
  9. Dances with Wolves
  10. Vincent & Theo

Others worth mentioning:

  • Mr. & Mrs. Bridge
  • Cry-Baby
  • The Cook, The Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover
  • Goodfellas
  • La Femme Nikita
  • Jacob’s Ladder
  • Wild at Heart

And while we’re at it: What were your favorite films of 1980… the movies joining the 30-Year Club?

Me? Well, what if I haven’t seen many 1980 films. I was ten, and movies weren’t very popular in my community, so… this is the best I can do. And I still haven’t seen The Blues Brothers or The Elephant Man. Sorry.

  1. Star Wars: Episode V -The Empire Strikes Back
  2. Raging Bull
  3. Airplane!
  4. The Shining
  5. Popeye
