Here is a list of my favorite movies from 1930 to 2014. These are movies that I love and I feel like are the best that year had to offer. Some years have more than one selection, because I love them equally and couldn’t decide. It’s interesting to see what years had the best movies (in my opinion). I am curious what others say theirs are and when.
