This thread makes me remember how far the movie industry has fallen.

'99 is also my favorite NFL draft class and when we all tried dunking like Vince Carter.

1999 was a great year.

re: Was 1999 the greatest year in modern cinema?
1993 was a good year
1994 was a great year
1996 was a great year
1997 was a good year
1998 was a great year
1999 was a good year

Same for years 2000-2003

The question really is:

Is 1993-2003 the best 11 year run in movie history?

I don't know what year anyone would say is "modern" and the year before not modern. I agree 1939 was the pinnacle of achievement for cinema and no year has topped it.
