Some of My Favorite Filmsby pizzapopsicle | created - 07 May 2017 | updated - 1 month ago | Public
Below, and in alphabetical order, I have created a list of what I consider to be some of my favorite movies. Now, this is not a definitive list, as I have not yet included foreign film, and it will be continuously updated as I watch more.
Also, I would like to mention that I believe that the acts of considering a film a personal favorite and thinking it one of the best films ever made are far from synonymous.
These are just my personal favorites, and, despite the fact that I consider them all to be of high quality, I'm not saying they're necessarily the best ever made.
For example, I love Little Miss Sunshine, and I think that it's great. However, I'm not putting it on this list to tell you that it's a better or more important film than Citizen Kane.
