Surprised to see no mention of Falling Down That would get my number one slot.


Edit: Apologies - I see it now at #21! Read that damn list three times and still only noticed it once I'd posted

Yeah, a really strong year, especially Jurassic Park, Schindler's List, The Fugitive and MotP. I would also add Searching for Bobby Fischer, The Good Son, The Piano (edit: also Philadelphia), and guilty pleasure Happily Ever After.

Didn't recognise the title, but then I saw it was released here as Innocent Moves. Good movie

Spielberg really owned this year. Also, since I was 5 in 1993 many of the movies I saw are family movies that I haven't seen in years and barely remember (stuff like the Tom and Jerry Movie and The Beverly Hillbillies), so I didn't bother to include them.

1. Jurassic Park
2. Schindler's List
3. The Nightmare Before Christmas
4. True Romance
5. Dazed and Confused
6. The Fugitive
7. Addams Family Values
8. Mrs. Doubtfire
9. Groundhog Day
10. Tombstone
11. A Bronx Tale
12. What's Eating Gilbert Grape
13. Hocus Pocus
14. The Sandlot
15. Free Willy
16. Cool Runnings
17. Coneheads
18. So I Married An Axe Murderer
19. The Good Son
20. Rookie of the Year
21. Last Action Hero
22. The Secret Garden
23. Wayne's World 2
24. Robin Hood: Men in Tights
25. We're Back: A Dinosaur's Story
26. Dennis the Menace
27. Look Who's Talking Now
28. Super Mario Bros.

A huge favourite of mine is The Remains of the Day, which came out that year. Hopkins and Thompson have great interactions here. The author of the novel, Kazuo Ishiguro, actually won the 2017 Nobel Prize in litterature.

If you haven't seen it, I also recommend "My American Uncle", maybe my favorite Resnais film.
