I like movies for different reasons. It could be the worldbuilding, character development, soundtrack, cinematography, or just the way it makes me feel when it comes to the end—oh, or nostalgia.
Most of these are on the IMDB Top 250. I’d like to see more of the AFI top 100 and the top 200 on Rotten Tomatoes.
This list is grouped roughly by genre and ordered loosely by my preference.
My profile on Letterboxd lists every movie I have ever seen (as best as I can remember).
