my wild & misspent youth

an unranked list of the movies that consumed my life, spanning roughly from age three to age eleven. these demarcation points do not constitute my developing taste, as some would argue i still have no taste to speak of. in any case, i can remember watching each one of these repeatedly throughout childhood, listed here in the order in which they sprang to mind.
