|LIST OF ALL ENTRIES|
As a participant, I am supposed to present to you my personal favourite year of movies and present my Top 5 movies of that year.
It hasn't been an easy choice, though I knew I'd choose a year after 1995 (my birth year). Many cinema enthusiasts praise the good old times when everything was better, but I like to focus on cinema itself and not the decades. You may ask, why I watch a lot of newer films then, and the answer is - this is my time. This is my youth and my life, and of course I find sometimes find it easier and more interesting to watch newer films.
I do love old films, and lately I've been watching a lot of black and white, even silent films - but many of them still aren't able to match with colour talkies, in my opinion.
The way I chose my year wasn't too hard though - I "just" (took some time) looked out which year was most frequent in my 100 Favourite Films list, and the result was... 2009.
I watched a lot of good movies in 2009, and I went to the cinema much more than in the previous years. I don't know if I became more interested in cinema because of this, or if I did this because I became more interested in cinema - all I know is that 2009 was the year when cinema started not just being entertainment for me, but also an art form that I came to appreciate more than most other art forms.
I also saw many good films of 2009 in the years after that, and this is why I chose 2009 to be MY MOVIE YEAR. All of these films are in the Top 50 of my upcoming updated 100 Favourite Films list, and you can read about them in the current list.
