50 favorites

*top 10 is alphabetical because I couldn't choose, the rest is realllllly roughly ranked*

I was vaguely planning on posting this on my fifth anniversary of being on this site (June 20th, jesus christ I have wasted so much of my life here) but then I finished it and I hate sitting on finished stuff for arbitrary reasons so here you go. I've made so many "favorites" lists and I've private'd or deleted all of them eventually because I end up changing my mind so much that it feels like a few edits cannot do it justice. Let's see how long I keep this one up.

Also instituting a "need to have seen the movie more than once" rule because…
