Top 50 Movies

I have been sitting on this post for literally years. I don’t know what I’ve been waiting for but now I’ve finally decided to post it. I would just like to say that I reserve the right to update (add or subtract) movies as I see fit.

As is the case with several posts I’ve written, this is more for me than it is for you. I always feel like I’m going to forget what my favorite movies are so I decided to finally make a list. However, rather than rank them, making the process more difficult, I’ve decided to simply put them in alphabetical order. More specifically, these are movies that make my heart ache after seeing them and wish I were doing more, or rather make me want to do more with my life. I’m sure this list will change as I’ve no doubt forgotten some or put in others that may not really deserve to be here. But, nevertheless, here it is (with 9 question marks- ones I’m not sure deserve to be here):
