My Best 100 Movies list.... 

The most recent edition of Entertainment Weekly featured lists of the 100 best movies, TV shows, music albums, and books. It inspired me to do my own variation. I started with their list, subtracted movies I hadn't seen or didn't feel were deserving, and added movies I thought they should have included. This is by no means a comprehensive list; if I put together all the movies I like, the total would easily be 1000. I am not completely satisfied with the rankings, but I've been rearranging them for several days, and I am simply just too indecisive, so I am going to leave it as it is right now. I did not include documentaries.

I plan to do lists for TV, music and books at a later date if/when I am up to it.
