My Top 100

Any quick google search can give you millions of results for a standard "top 100". Common entries would include Citizen Kane, Apocalypse Now, and the like. And if I were doing an objective list on the top 100 films in the world, purely based on merit, cinematography, script, and all around greatness, then I would probably do the same.

This is not that list.

This list is subjective, biased, opinionated, fuelled by nostalgia and personal experience. These are the films that have impacted my personality, my character, and my decisions. It is HIGHLY discriminatory and one thousand percent for my own benefit. It may even feature - *gasp* - critically panned films.

You have been warned. It is also in no particular order, and will change, as all opinions do, as time passes us by.
