1989 Movies


I've seen 9 of the 10 highest-grossing films of 1989. And this includes one of my favorite movies ever: Dead Poets Society.
"We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for." - John Keating, in Dead Poets Society


Favorite Movies of 1989 (definitely re-watchable):
1. Dead Poets Society
2. Back to the Future II

"To quote from Whitman, 'O me! O life!... of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless... of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?' Answer. That you are here — that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?" - John Keating in Dead Poets Society
