A list in progress of movies I've watched and liked over the years.
My approach to movies have always been sentient. I don't analyze movies. So seemingly I love every "worst movie ever" on this site...
FYI: I have a soft spot for Neo Noirs and 70-90's (B-)thrillers, so you might find a lot of them represented on this list.
