1990: The Year in Film

This post is along the same lines as that last one about music but this one is talking about movies that were released in 1990. Below is a list of what I thought were the best movies that were released that year by month:

February
Flashback

March
The Hunt for Red October
Joe Versus the Volcano

May
Back to the Future Part 3

June
Total Recall
Days of Thunder

July
Die Hard 2
The Adventures of Ford Fairlane
The Freshman

August
Darkman
Flatliners
My Blue Heaven
Pump Up the Volume
Young Guns 2

September
Goodfellas

November
Misery

Now, if you are interested, this list is the list of the highest grossing films of 1990:

Ghost - $505 million
Home Alone - $476
Pretty Woman - $463
Dances With Wolves - $424
Total Recall - $261
Back to the Future 3 - $244
Die Hard 2 - $240
Presumed Innocent - $221
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - $201
Kindergarten Cop - $201

Interesting that out of the Top 10 highest-grossing films, only 3 of my favorites made that list. Oh well.
