My Top 100 Movies Of All Time (2012)

I’ve seen hundreds of movies since I posted this on Facebook in 2012, and come 2017 I’ll be doing an update (every five years sound about right?). When it came to foreign film I was lacking a bit, but I do still think this is a good list. I love all of these films and I’m pretty sure a lot of them will show up on future lists of mine. If you’re interested, here they are.

Oh, one more thing. This is a list of greatest films I’ve ever seen, not necessarily my favorite movies (although many of them are).
