Top 150 Movies Since 1990

After months of research and hours spent watching too many movies when we should have been out doing something with our lives, Kotite's Corner has compiled a list of the top 150 movies since 1990. It wasn't easy to eliminate some that are not on the list, and it wasn't easy to come up with the order for the current list. The rules are simple - No documentaries will appear on the list. This list was also compiled by men, so you will not see movies such as Titanic on here. If sequels belonged (Bourne Trilogy), we lumped all movies together in order to save room for others. The movies included in this list, as the title suggests, came out between 1990-2008. We also feel as if every movie list should be well-rounded, meaning you need movies from multiple genres. The Oscars are on Sunday,and we have The Dark Knight, Gran Torino, The Wrestler, and Slumdog Millionaire from this year's list. So here it is, Kotite's Corner's Top 150 movies since 1990. We hope you enjoy!

Hottest Fans of the NL East?

More Hardball wants to know who has the hottest fans in baseball. We'll be running a set of posts over the following weeks featuring images of each teams' hotties, with a voting poll to crown a champion. We've crowned champs of the AL East (BoSox), Central (ChiSox), West (Angels), and AL Wild Card (A's) already, and we're now moving on to the National League...NL East. Sticking true to Major League Baseball's roots, there will be an eight team playoff system where the winners of each division square off with the addition of a wild card team to determine who wins the pennant and represents each league in the World Series of Hotness.

Nice list, agree with some disagree with other. How long did it take you to compose?

Roget said...

a few months of debate between us, once we got the top 150 we each individually ranked them and then the average of our rankings is the final ranking.

thanks

Great list!! Lotta favorites, quite a few here I haven't seen for me to create my own "to watch" list. Just one question... How the H$!! did Borat make the top 25????

No way is There Will Be Blood lower than Borat or Se7en. It should be in the top ten. Gangs of New York Should be higher. You are spot on with Shawshank Redemption and American Beauty. Good that you know City of God has a place among the greatest ever. And Flags of Our Fathers/Iwo Jima could probably be a bit higher as well

Brian said...

Schockly good list. Def. more on par with average under 30 male than others. I'm not sure how Gladiator and the Matrix were so low, and where is Anchorman? I think I also like the recent super-hero movies and would include Ironman, X-men 2, and Spiderman 2. And I'm secure enough to say Lion King makes my top 25 anyday.

LOTR at 125? Really?? I think most other lists would hve that top 10 or 20!

I like this list. My only additions would be Man on Fire, Armageddon, and Friday Night Lights.

All in all a great list, though I am surprised not to see Finding Neverland on it anywhere. That one is definitely in my top ten.
