My Top 51 (rough draft)

Greetings.

I feel as though I have not been as personal as I should be throughout my blog posts, and though I have shared lots of information on other films, I have hardly shared any of my favorites.

This list was hard for me to make, because it is just so darn hard to categorize all those movies I have seen over the years and narrow ’em down to just a top 51.  Nevertheless, I told myself I would eventually attempt this.  I am writing this in the “style” of a certain website, http://www.imdb.com, which has a top 250 list.

The problem with me and this list is that it is liable to change any day.  In another couple of hours, or a couple of minutes.  The 13th might become the 21st, the 40th becomes the 15th; this is my current list.  My list of 1/23/12.

(Also note that on the side the films are “numbered”, like on a list from 1 to 10, 10 being the greatest.  But at the moment that 10 would be the best, awesometastic movie of all time, and honestly, I have not come across that one yet, because I have yet to see all the movies of all time.  9.0 will be the highest today, thank you.  And in these numbered groups, they are not listed in order from greatest to least.  Because I had trouble saying which film was better than the other, they are simply in that “top 4 group”, “top teens”, and etc.)

Alright.  Here we go…
