Top 9 Films of 1992

In honor of the 20th Anniversary of their release, here is a list of the Top 9 Films that were released in 1992, listed in alphabetical order:

1.     A Few Good Men - Directed by Rob Reiner and starring Tom Cruise, Demi Moore, and Jack Nicholson, among many others. This is actually one of my all-time favorite movies.

2.     Bram Stoker's Dracula - Directed Francis Ford Coppola and starring Gary Oldman, Anthony Hopkins, and Winona Ryder. Oh yeah, Keanu Reeves was in it too but I try to forget that.

3.     Hoffa  - Directed by Danny DeVito and starring Jack Nicholson and Danny DeVito. Great biopic about the late Teamster leader.

4.     Malcolm X - Directed by Spike Lee and starring Denzel Washington and Angels Bassett.  Another great biopic based on the autobiography of Malcolm X and the novel Malcolm X by Alex Haley.

5.     My Cousin Vinny - Directed by Jonathan Lynn and starring Joe Pesci, Marisa Tomei, Ralph Macchio, and Fred Gwynee. Nothing really spectacular of the film but you gotta love it.

6.     Patriot Games - Directed by Phillip Noyce and starring Harrison Ford, Sean Bean, and James Earl Jones. This one was based on the Tom Clancy novel of the same name.

7.     Reservoir Dogs - Directed by Quentin Tarantino and starring Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Steve Buscemi, Michael Madsen. Hell of a cast. Great soundtrack. This movie precedes Tarantino's mega-hit Pulp Fiction by 2 years.

8.     Singles - Directed by Cameron Crowe and starring Bridget Fonda, Campbell Scott, Kyra Sedgwick, Matt Dillon and the members of Pearl Jam. Great location for a film (Hey, I'm not biased). Great Great soundtrack.

9.     Unforgiven - Directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman, and Gene Hackman. One of the greatest modern westerns ever made (hmm...sounds like a good idea for a post...)

Honorable Mentions (there are quite a few, this was a really good year for movies):

Batman Returns
Wayne's World
Scent of a Woman
The Distinguished Gentleman
The Babe
Under Seige
Far and Away
A League of Their Own

This list could get much longer. I'm serious this was an amazing year for movies.

  1. Kuffs? Really? That movie was horrible! Quite possibly the worst thing Christian Slater ever did.
