farrier's top 100 (ish) good times

thought i'd make a list of 100 films on my mind right now - stuff i think is mindblowing, each for a different reason. hope you enjoy some of them - from ridiculous blockbusters to smaller stuff. they are "sorta" grouped into genres, or moods. are there movies you love that i don't have on my list? yes. yes there are. enjoy.
