The Class of 2017 are just entering high school this year. This means they were born in 1999. It may seem that they are all grown up and mature, but it might surprise you when you look back to the movies that came out the year they were born.
OK, you may think that I am being tongue-in-cheek with this post, but really, he is a cool person. When I started looking into Kevin Costner’s life, I have a new-found respect for this man.

James Cameron’s Avatar was the big hype over the last year. He broke cinematography frontiers with his use of special effects and forward thinking.

One of the most utilized and little recognized mechanisms to move a person from one conscious state of mind to another is a “portal.” A portal is a doorway, an entrance, an opening in which you are one side looking through to another. Your subconscious mind says, “Let’s go there.”
Movie directors have been using portals since movies were in diapers. Early movie directors used portals in their movies subconsciously (raw talent) while later directors use them consciously (a learned skill).
Here are my top five movie portals and the reasons why…
1. Star Wars I: The Phantom Menace ($431 million)
2. The Sixth Sense ($293 million)
3. Toy Story 2 ($245 million)
4. Austin Powers:The Spy Who Shagged Me ($206 million)
5. The Matrix ($171 million)
