Why 1999 Was The Best Year For Movies (or How much can you know about yourself if you’ve never been in a fight?)
The best year in my history of films would have to be 1999.
Look at the list:
South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut,
Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels,
but the best of this list of bests was Fight Club.
No movie spoke to me on so many levels as that movie.
You either get it or you don't.
But for me and others it was the defining movie of our generation.
And as time has passed some peoples opinion about the film has changed as well. Entertainment Weekly, which had originally given the film a negative grade of D, later ranked the DVD #1 on its list of "The Top 50 DVDs You Need To Own."
The movie, which was a flop at the box office, actually has made a profit because of DVD sales.
But none of that matters.
What matters it that it told a generation that it was "not it's fucking khakis…"
