At the end of each year, I take great pleasure in compling a list of the best and worst films from the last 12 months. It provides "closure". I can encapsulate the cinematic year by listing 10 exceptional films and 10 horrendous films. It's fun looking back at years past and it can provide a good reference point when comparing year to year. Of the more than 5,000 films that I have reviewed, my favourite is Billy Elliot.
Here then are the links to my best and worst lists from 1996 to the current date. You can click on each year for the full list. Are there some films that you haven't seen before? If so, get off your butt and watch them!
