Movies are one of my favorite things, and I don’t know anyone who doesn’t have a mental list of their favorites right readily available. One of the joys of having the “What are your favorite movies?” conversation is that it seems endless: just when you think you’ve named all your favorites, another one pops into your mind. Or, you ask for some kind of criteria to help limit your focus. Favorite of all time, or just comedies? Or just action movies? Or just Christmas movies?
With this in mind, I answered the call on Nathan Bransford’s site for my 100 favorite movies. Remember that “favorite” and “best” are, of course, not the same thing. And as soon as I post this, I’ll almost certainly think of a couple that I left out. Picking a top hundred isn’t all that hard. Putting them in order was really hard. But I did my best, and reserve the right to change my mind frequently. And I will. So, thanks, Nathan, for the motivation!
