1998 in Film

1998 was the year it happened. The American Film Institute came out with their top 100 list and prompted me to do something I had been thinking of for years. In high school I had a classmate who kept a notebook where he reviewed every single movie he ever saw. Now that computers were everywhere, I decided to do the same thing, only on a spread sheet. Fourteen years and over 1,000 movies later, it is still going. That being said, 1998 was not a strong year. Either I was just getting going and didn’t see enough, or the year was weak.

Top Personal Films of 1998:
1. Dark City
2. Saving Private Ryan
3. The Truman Show
4. The Big Lebowski
5. Shakespeare in Love
6. Prince of Egypt
7. Waking Ned Divine

10. The Mask of Zorro

Bottom Personal Films of 1998:
