Never seen: Runaway Bride, Stuart Little, The World Is Not Enough, Notting Hill, Analyze This, The General's Daughter (Madeleine Stowe's last box office hit movie I think. One of my favorite actors from the 90s).

I absolutely love The Mummy.  Big stupid blockbuster - pure entertainment   TeddyR  Blair Witch was pretty good, but not the kind of movie I'd ever watch a second time because the characters got soooooo annoying by the end.

I saw the top 5 films in the theater actually.  
1.) The worst letdown in film history.  I'm still recovering.
2.) Good but lost it's luster on second viewings
3.) Great sequel, i actually saw it as kind of a last minute choice.
4.) I actually never laughed as much in a theater while watching this film.
5.) I didn't know anything about this film until a college classmate told me about it.  I saw it that afternoon and loved it. Too bad the sequels went off the tracks

Another thing I have noticed about these threads is that the later the year the fewer films off the list I have seen. For example, there are 10 films I have not seen or care about seeing on this list and only 1 that I have not seen in the 1991 list.

Am I the only one (probably)

I'm surprised American Pie was so low on the list, I remember that being a pretty big deal when it came out.  And the first one was good, but they got carried away with stupid sequels and ruined it.

Much like Austin Powers that way, actually.  Saw the original in the theater and I was literally the only person laughing.  The whole movie.  It was fantastic.  Then it seemed like everyone else realized it was funny, so they promoted the hell out of the second one and it was just terrible.

01. $431,088,301 - Star Wars: Episode I - Left me with a dull, hollow feeling inside.
02. $293,506,292 - The Sixth Sense - The first and only M. Night movie that I've fully enjoyed
03. $245,852,179 - Toy Story 2-Cute
04. $206,040,086 - Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me- Some pretty funny scenes and Heather Graham at her hottest and most vivacious? What's not to like?

05. $171,479,930 - The Matrix- I loved this movie. I saw it 3 times in the theater.
06. $171,091,819 - Tarzan-Cute
07. $163,479,795 - Big Daddy-Missed it.
08. $155,385,488 - The Mummy- I wasn't expecting a reprise of Karloff's movie and had a great time with it.
I really liked it. It was fun.

09. $152,257,509 - Runaway Bride- Hahahahahaha.....um nope
10. $140,539,099 - The Blair Witch Project-Over rated.

11. $140,035,367 - Stuart Little-Missed it.
12. $136,801,374 - The Green Mile- Ok.
13. $130,096,601 - American Beauty-Missed it.
14. $126,943,684 - The World Is Not Enough-Better than it gets credit for, I think. Excellent cast except maybe for Denise Richards as a nuclear scientist Drink
15. $116,741,558 - Double Jeopardy-Missed it.
16. $116,089,678 - Notting Hill-Missed it
17. $113,804,681 - Wild Wild West- The " Batman and Robin" of Westerns
18. $106,885,658 - Analyze This- Funny.
19. $102,705,852 - The General's Daughter-Missed it.
20. $102,561,004 - American Pie-Typical gross out teen comedy. Better than the average of it's kind.

  Overall I'd say more hits than misses.

01. $431,088,301 - Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace
LOVED it ... except for Jake Lloyd.  I still feel the same way today.

02. $293,506,292 - The Sixth Sense
Not scary, and boring.

03. $245,852,179 - Toy Story 2
Never saw

04. $206,040,086 - Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me
Never saw

05. $171,479,930 - The Matrix
Wasted potential.  After creating an environment where almost anything could happen, all they showed us were gun fights and wire fu.

06. $171,091,819 - Tarzan
The Disney one?  It was ok.

07. $163,479,795 - Big Daddy
Never saw.

08. $155,385,488 - The Mummy
Good old-fashioned adventure yarn.

09. $152,257,509 - Runaway Bride
Never saw.

10. $140,539,099 - The Blair Witch Project
A complete con job of a movie.  Hell, I don't even like to dignify it by calling it a movie.  A bunch of idiots running around with cameras shouting "f**k!"  Astounding marketing strategy, though.

11. $140,035,367 - Stuart Little
Never saw

12. $136,801,374 - The Green Mile
Never saw

13. $130,096,601 - American Beauty
Never saw

14. $126,943,684 - The World Is Not Enough
Never saw, nor have I seen any other Bond movie since.

15. $116,741,558 - Double Jeopardy
Oh, is this that absurd Ashley Judd movie?

16. $116,089,678 - Notting Hill
???

17. $113,804,681 - Wild Wild West
They really didn't have any idea what they were doing, did they?

18. $106,885,658 - Analyze This
???

19. $102,705,852 - The General's Daughter
A movie so rote it could have been made by assembly-line robots.  Actually, I think robots would have brought more life to the proceedings.

20. $102,561,004 - American Pie
Never saw.

Wow!  Not a good movie year for me.

Nope.  I see fewer and fewer new movies every year.  Actually, there were a couple or three years in the 2000s that I didn't see any movies at all.  It's not that they're getting worse, necessarily, it just seems like they're getting increasingly soulless.  Or maybe I'm just getting older and have other things to worry about than movies.

01. $431,088,301 - Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace-- saw this in theaters.  Now I know why I hate Star Wars.
02. $293,506,292 - The Sixth Sense- Overrated flick, but the best one by M. Night.
03. $245,852,179 - Toy Story 2- I love the Toy Story Series.
04. $206,040,086 - Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me- Funny but not a classic as most think.
05. $171,479,930 - The Matrix- Sucked, hard.
06. $171,091,819 - Tarzan- Sucked, hard.
07. $163,479,795 - Big Daddy- Saw this in theaters.  Fun movie.
08. $155,385,488 - The Mummy- Didn't watch it.

17. $113,804,681 - Wild Wild West- Wow.  Mind boggling.
18. $106,885,658 - Analyze This- Should be higher.  Great movie.

Let's see here (Only looking at the films I've seen):

Star Wars: Episode 1 - Hey, it's my second favorite film of the franchise and made me interested in the series.  Say whatever you want, but it still means something to me.
Toy Story 2 -  Saw it like once or twice, but I really liked it way more the first film.
Tarzan - Really enjoyed this film a lot and helped be interested more in Disney films due to some of its dark nature (have not seen Black Cauldreon at that point)
Staurt Little - To quote HappyGilmore, meh.
Wild Wild West - Only saw it once and I thought it was okay.  Need to see it again to form a real opinion of it.

DOMESTIC GROSSES #1Ė20

01. $431,088,301 - Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace - bores me to tears during all its races. Only Darth Maul held any interest for me. Regretted waiting long in line to see this...
02. $293,506,292 - The Sixth Sense - I loved this one! Really surprised me at the time.
03. $245,852,179 - Toy Story 2 - Outstanding!
04. $206,040,086 - Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me - Honestly I like this one the best of the Austin Powers movies even though it has some seriously offensive and dumb moments.
05. $171,479,930 - The Matrix - Loved it! Definitely a mindless action sci-fi fest but a lot of fun to watch.
06. $171,091,819 - Tarzan - Haven't seen
07. $163,479,795 - Big Daddy- Haven't seen
08. $155,385,488 - The Mummy- I enjoyed it but was disappointed we got an adventure film instead of an horror movie. Pales next to the classic Universal and Hammer Mummy movies for me.
09. $152,257,509 - Runaway Bride - Haven't seen.
10. $140,539,099 - The Blair Witch Project - I really liked this. At least it was daring and different at the time.

11. $140,035,367 - Stuart Little - Haven't seen
12. $136,801,374 - The Green Mile - Not half bad but overlong.
13. $130,096,601 - American Beauty - Thought it was overrated.
14. $126,943,684 - The World Is Not Enough - very disappointing Bond movie. Expected so much more.
15. $116,741,558 - Double Jeopardy - Haven't seen.
16. $116,089,678 - Notting Hill- Haven't seen.
17. $113,804,681 - Wild Wild West- Stupid and very lame. Only giant spider gives it any life at all but mostly a dead dud.
18. $106,885,658 - Analyze This - Haven't seen
19. $102,705,852 - The General's Daughter - Haven't seen
20. $102,561,004 - American Pie- I hated it.

I do think this is the year I saw the most films in the theater though as I saw # 1, 2, 4, 5, and 10. Also saw Sleepy Hollow and The Thirteenth Floor this year both of which I also liked.
