Top Movies


It’s pretty much impossible for a movie blogger to name their very favorite movie ever but I’ve attempted to put my 100 or so favorites on this page.

    • Thanks! Oh – I love when someone actually looks at this page! I really should update it… I like a lot more recent films than it probably seems from this list, which I initially put together several years ago. : )
