1992 in Film

This was a good year for film, and the first year that I was personally on my own, so most of these were films I saw in the first year where I didn’t have to ask for permission to see or report back what I had seen. Not that that made much of a difference since I had developed somewhat good movie going standards at home. That being said, there was the obligatory, pointless road trip to Liberal, Kansas where we watched “Dr. Giggles.” Definitely not a recommendation.

  1. Had I known, you could have watched my copy of Howard's End...It is on one of the dual DVDs--Howard's End and Remains of the Day. How great is that!

  2. I'd second The Last of the Mohicans-- great film! Though it does remind me of a joke (I think it's from Chris Rock). Referring to the Hollywood tendency to make a white man the last or greatest hero of various minorities (Avatar is a nice, recent example), you have to wonder how long it will be until someone produces: "The Last N----r [black man] on Earth", starring Tom Hanks.

    I've also rediscovered how much fun Aladdin is, since I've had kids. I might have to add Sister Act to your list too, though it's been at least a decade since I've seen it so perhaps it is not as good as I remember. There's also, eh hem, Army of Darkness--second only to The Holy Grail in quotability (though even more crude and obnoxious).

  3. Yeah, Sister Act lands somewhere in the middle of the pack for me. AOD has never been as good as I thought it should be. From the previews I saw when it came out I was expecting something better. You have to love Bruce in anything he is in though.
