I have always loved movies. They offer an escape from the humdrum routine and a chance to enter another world, a world of intrigue or fantasy or adventure. Movies entertain us with comedy and tragedy; they offer hope or portray desperation; they lift us up and they bring us to our knees.
Here is my list of the best movies ever made, presented alphabetically in installments of ten. See how many you have seen. I find that movies are very personal, but see if you agree with my choices. My favorite genres are Thrillers and Dramas; I hate scary movies.
