Episode #66 – Best Movie Year: ’84, ’89, or ’99?

Each year, literally hundreds of movies are released in the United States, and any one of them has the potential to become a favorite for movie lovers, and perhaps even one day come to be considered a bona fide classic. With so many movies being produced each year, every so often you just get a particularly good year of movies.  And some years the slate of movies lines up in a way that an abundance of great films emerge from their release year to join the timeless ranks of classic films. So which year had the most? The panel selected three movie years with personal and pop cultural significance: 1984, 1989, and 1999. And they will discuss which of those they believe was the best movie year.
