This was really tough! I've been breaking it down for a month to get it to where i'm happy with it, and i've sacrificed some great movies in the process. But what i'm left with are the films that mean the most to me at this point in life. It's a little sad to see how things change though - for example, 10 years ago Fight Club would have been a dead cert, but lately (and probably because i've seen it too many times) it's not having the same impact. It saddens me to leave it off but that's the game i guess. Newest entries would be Boyhood and Whiplash as i know i'll be loving them tremendously for a long time to come. Some entries that have been on here for more than a few decades...Dazed and Confused, Stand by Me, Groundhog Day, they'll never leave. Simply too good!.
Anyway, my favourite 50 of all time. Done!.
