1989 in FIlm

It seems a little hard to fathom that 1989 was 20 years ago. What a momentous year! The world literally changed in ways that dwarf the changes of eight years ago this week. 1989 was a big year in film as well. Personally, I have vivid memories of seeing Batman and Dead Poet’s on video tape months before they were released in Chile, and seeing Bill and Ted’s in a theater in Colorado that winter while we were on our first trip back to the states. Some people hate the way that the film industry has turned summer into huge blockbuster season, but those people probably hate roller coasters too. 1989 saw the release of two of my personal top 10 movies of all time and two more in my top 50. Twenty years on, they haven’t lost any of their magic.
