A Favorite Movie For Every Year I’ve Been Alive (Part I) brought you from the year of my birth to 1988, A Favorite Movie For Every Year I’ve Been Alive (Part II) covered 1989 to 2004, and today I am going to bring it up to the present day.

Thoughts on doing this project:
- some years have far better movies than others. I think some of my favorite movies of the year might not make it to honorable mentions in other years.
- there are still a lot of movies I haven’t seen that may make this list in the future.
- revisiting old movies might make me reevaluate whether they still belong on this list or if they were unfairly excluded.
- but this is a little snapshot of my favorite movie from each year I’ve been alive as of the summer of 2021!
