1993 in Film

This was still in the period of my life where I saw a lot of films in the theater. Whereas for the past decade or so, I average around ten movies in the theater a year, I must have seen around 30 in 1993 in the little college theater at West Texas A&M. If dollar theaters like that didn’t exist, how else would anyone have seen Leprechaun in theaters? This year also had a lot of good-but-middle-of-the-road movies that don’t make the top (or bottom) of the list. Films like Cool Runnings, Last Action Hero, Manhattan Murder Mystery, Cronos, and The Sandlot might could have taken the 10 spot, but I would have to take the time to revisit them all.

Top Ten Personal Films of 1993:
1. Schindler’s List
2. Jurassic Park
3. The Wrong Trousers
4. Much Ado about Nothing
5. Swing Kids
6. Sleepless in Seattle
7. The Fugitive
8. The Nightmare before Christmas
9. Groundhog Day
10. So I Married an Axe Murderer

Bottom Films of 1993:
1. Fire in the Sky
2. Mad Dog and Glory
3. Free Willy
4. Leprechaun
5. National Lampoon’s Loaded Weapon

Films I Still Need to See:
A Perfect World
Remains of the Day
True Romance
In the Name of the Father
