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):
Scent of a Woman
The Distinguished Gentleman
Far and Away
A League of Their Own
This list could get much longer. I'm serious this was an amazing year for movies.
