1999 MOVIE RECAP

     Below is a recap of 1999 movie ratings.  American Beauty and Notting Hill were the most viewed movie
by our 24 raters - 15 times.   South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut was the top rated movie (no kidding)
this year at 93.7 followed by The Hurricane 91.7, For Love of the Game 91, Sixth Sense 90.6 and
American Pie 90.4.  Sixth Sense was the only Academy Award nominee to make our top five.  I see we
have little influence on the Academy!   Listed below are top 20 movies seen based on # of times seen,
Top 20 movies based on rating, Top 20 movies based on rating after dropping lowest score, Academy
Award nominees, Worst 10 movies of the year,  Top five movies of our 17 honor roll raters and the top
10 movie goers.  Fourteen different movies were ranked # 1 by our 17 raters.  Two were in the bottom
ten of the concensus!  The Hurricane was the only one ranked favorite movie by 3 raters.  We rated
138 movies 695 times.  Sixty movies were seen 5 or more times.
      Thanks to all who participated in the ratings this year.  I would send you all a free pass to the
Academy Awards but the Academy didn't see fit to award me any tickets!
