The Best of 406 From 2016

2016 Top Ten

I’ve been doing these “Look Back” posts since back in 2010. I started off the year strong with 22 posts between January and February! I slowed down quite a bit but ended the year with a respectable 79 posts for the year, down just one from last year’s output of 80 posts. I still plan on knocking out three more which will be dated in 2016 (three WWE PPV recaps). I’m sort of an analytics geek … Continue reading

Top Five Favorite Films From 1987

Secret of My Success (1987)

It’s been quite a while (over six months!!!) but I’m back today with another favorite film list. This time the year is 1987 and I’ve got to tell you, this isn’t getting any easier as we move through the ’80s. After a couple of passes through the list of potential entries I still had 26 films that were in contention! You can check out my previous lists here: 1980 | 1981 | 1982 | 1983 | 1984 | 1985 | 1986 … Continue reading

The Best of 2015 – A Look Back At 406Northlane.com

2015 Top Ten

I’ve been doing these “Best Of” since back in 2010.  I really upped my blogging output this past year but that doesn’t mean I’m happy. There’s still a lot I want to say… just look at my drafts folder! I’m sort of an analytics geek so I really look forward to writing these recap posts. It’s always interesting (to me at least) to see what posts make the list and to see if there are posts … Continue reading

Top Five Favorite Films From 1986

Three Amigos (1986)

Back again with another favorite list and this time the year is 1986. Going through the list of potential entries this is another tough year to rank. After a couple of passes I still had 23 films that needed to be ranked. You can check out my previous lists here: 1980 | 1981 | 1982 | 1983 | 1984 | 1985 As I’ve done previously, I’m sticking with my format of Five Honorable Mentions and a ranked … Continue reading

Top Five Favorite Films From 1985

Remo Williams - The Adventure Begins

I was really hoping these lists would be getting easier as I went. They’re absolutely not. As I went through the list of potential films that were released in 1985 there were over 30 (!) films that made my first pass. You can check out my previous lists here: 1980 | 1981 | 1982 | 1983 | 1984 As with previous lists, I’m sticking with my format of Five Honorable Mentions and a Top Five and … Continue reading

Top Five Favorite Films From 1984

Police Academy (1984)

It’s been a while but I’m back again with another top five list, this time 1984. I won’t bury the lead here… this was the most difficult list I’ve come up with yet! I thought 1982 was difficult but this one puts it to shame. WOW… so many amazing films were released in 84! So basically, the way I make these lists are go through every movie and narrow it down to a list of … Continue reading

Top Five Favorite Films From 1983

Scarface (1983)

Back again with another top five list and this time I’m visiting 1983. This wasn’t nearly as difficult a list to come up with as my last list from 1982, but there were still some tough choices that needed to be made especially when it came to which five films to be included in the Honorable Mentions section. In addition to 1982, check out 1981 and 1980. Chewie’s Top 5 Films From 1983 All of … Continue reading

Top Five Favorite Films From 1982

The Beastmaster (1982)

Back again with another top five list, this time the year is 1982. Things are really getting difficult. No, that’s not even accurate. Things are getting downright impossible. 1982 is chock full of films that I consider top notch awesome. I’ve started this post several times. The first draft I had about 26 honorable mentions. But I won’t take the easy way out. With the 1980 and 1981 lists I had five honorable mentions and a … Continue reading

Top Five Favorite Films From 1981

Stripes (1981)

Back again with another top 5 list, this time 1981. Before I get started I wanted to point out something about these lists. The years for each movie is determined by the US theatrical release. I’m using a website called The Numbers – www.the-numbers.com. This issue came to light after I posted my Top 5 Films From 1980 list. If you look at IMDB for say, Superman II it lists it as a 1980 movie. However, … Continue reading

Top Five Favorite Films From 1980

Flash Gordon

I’m a big list guy. If you’ve read my stuff here you know I love putting them together and debating them. I’m starting a new, hopefully regular, series here on the site where I’ll be looking at my favorite films through the years. I got the idea for this when one of my favorite podcasts StarJoes did the same thing. I’m what they call a “child of the 80’s” as I was born in 1976 so … Continue reading
