Leading up to 30: 30 Films in 30 Years

My 30th birthday is swiftly approaching & it's got me feeling nostalgic & thinking about my favorites. So, I have spent some time thinking about it & I have compiled a list of film favorites from each year that I've been alive. Now, I don't actually remember seeing films in the theater until 1989, when I saw The Little Mermaid, but I've picked films from those early years that I now love. This certainly doesn't have all of my favorites, but it's a pretty good start & lists some real gems. What are some of your favorites? Do we overlap at all?
