A Favorite Movie For Every Year I’ve Been Alive (Part III)

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.

2005. 49 Up

I should note that I love the entire Up Series, but 2005 was the year that I binged Seven Up to 42 Up on DVD and then went to see 49 Up in in the cinema.

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!
