    The Bold ones are the most notable ones. I'm not fan of Big Daddy or Deep Blue Sea, but a lot of people seem to like them.

    Seems like a lifetime ago..some pretty good flicks on there. Office Space of course a classic. Star Wars, although most hated it I waited 3 hrs for a ticket. Payback, an underrated movie imo, one of my favorites.
    Dealing with it.

    I think I must've been VERY busy in 1999, as I've only seen a handful of these films - but I'd say that my personal favourites include "Analyze This"; "The Sixth Sense"; "Lock, Stock...", and "Sleepy Hollow" (I went to the cinema to see that one, for the first time in literally YEARS!).

    I think it must be a sign of my rapidly advancing years that it really doesn't seem all that long ago...

    I basically did not watch anything that year.

    No shit, I basically spent a year living like a mountain man or something. I lived in the middle of nowhere and I had no internet or cable that year. I also went on a strict diet and lost like 50-70 pounds that year.
