Best films from 1950 - 1959

Chris Swanson "I'm just this guy, you know?"
The list author says: "Here is a list, subject to change and alteration, of the best films for each year from 1950 - 1959. With up to four films from each year! Please note: this list only includes movies I've actually seen. If a year isn't shown on here, it's cause I haven't seen any noteworthy films from that year. At least not yet! As I see more, the list will change.""
All About Eve

"1950 - See Bette Davis play the woman every drag queen aspires to be! There's a reason this film won so many Oscars!"
Sunset Boulevard (Special Collector's Edition)

"1950 - Gloria Swanson's pseudo-autobiographical turn as Norma Desmond should have won the Oscar. It didn't. Still an amazing film!"
Ace in the Hole (The Criterion Collection)

"1951 - Kirk Douglas is very forceful in this highly overlooked film! It shows Americans as we are, not as we wish we were. No wonder it didn't do well at the box office."
The Day the Earth Stood Still

"1951 - One of the very earliest and very best "serious" science fiction films. Robert Wise really proved he knows what he's doing here. Rumour has it they plan to remake this movie. Watch the original version before what will likely be a crappy new version happens!"
Roman Holiday (Special Collector's Edition)

"1953 - Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck are the romantic stars in this fun little movie. An almost perfect romantic comedy! Watch it along side of "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and you'll feel better about the world."
The Caine Mutiny (Combat Classics)

"1954 - Humphrey Bogart going slowly mad and Fred McMurray playing an obnoxious, sarcastic manipulator? What's not to love?"
The Ladykillers

"1955 - Not to be confused with the mess that came a few decades later, this movie is funny and disturbing, with great performances all aroud!"
Anastasia

"1956 - Ok, so the history in this film makes "Braveheart" look like a documentry. So what? Great performance, wonderful cinematography and a good story make it the best film I've seen from 1956!"
The Bridge on the River Kwai (Limited Edition)

"1958 - A stunning film. Beautiful to look at, with incredible performances. Certainly Alec Guinness' best work, and it features an impressive train wreck; Unlike many recent movies which simply ARE train wrecks."
Sleeping Beauty (Two-Disc Platinum Edition)
Sleeping Beauty (Two-Disc Platinum Edition)
"1959 - For some reason some of the animation put me in mind of the work of Chuck Jones. Still, there's far worse people to be compared to, and Malificent still kicks some serious backside!"
Some Like It Hot (Special Edition)
Some Like It Hot (Special Edition)
"1959 - Marilyn Monroe's character complains about always getting "the fuzzy end of the lollipop". You can guess what that's a reference to. This along with the last line of the film gives the movie a very contemporary feeling."
