Was 1999 the greatest year in modern cinema?
quote:

Magnolia to The Matrix: was 1999 the greatest year in modern cinema?

It was the year that brought us a feast of multiplex and arthouse pleasures and two decades on, its impact can still be felt in Hollywood

The Matrix. Magnolia. Being John Malkovich. Fight Club. The Blair Witch Project. The Sixth Sense. Office Space. Man on the Moon. The Talented Mr. Ripley. Boys Don’t Cry. Three Kings. Toy Story 2. The Iron Giant. Eyes Wide Shut. Cruel Intentions. Election. American Pie. Notting Hill and Runaway Bride. 1999 might be the greatest year of modern cinema. I think so. If you aren’t nutty about two-thirds of these films, do you even like movies?

What’s certain, however, is that 1999 is the most pivotal year of modern cinema – the moment that Hollywood anointed the chosen ones who would become the heroes of the new millennium

I was really excited for 2008...Had a Star Wars movie, Indiana Jones movie, Bond movie, and Batman movie all on tap. Unfortunately, it did not work out as well as I would have hoped.

Most of those movies are way too 99s to have much merit other than a time capsule into style

Depends on what the/his definition of modern cinema is. Is it the past 20 years? 30 years? Hell, it may be the past 10 years. If he's saying 20 years, then I can see his point. Past 30 years, no. 1994 was a better year IMO.
