    My own Top 30 doesn't look like that anymore, but it's been over five years. I've been working on annual Top 30 lists and as I've posted somewhere else, I've managed to do that now for every year from 1970 to 2018: https://letterboxd.com/maemiddleton/lists/by/name/

    Very interesting list. I've never seen anyone have Watchmen in their top Anything list (I love that movie, btw).

    Terminator 2 and Goodfellas are both in my personal Top 10.

    Out of curiosity - no love for The Godfather?

    Watchmen is prob the only one on my list that has scenes that makes me roll my eyes but still pops up as one of my faves. I even prefer the Ultimate Cut that adds the whole animated Black Freighter saga. For whatever reason, I just love the movie

    Godfather is the shit and I love it (and G2). I love how many iconic moments it has and I love referring to it for life advice. I love canolis more than guns. But I saw Goodfellas first when I was younger, so that one really resonated more. And godfather takes itself so seriously compared to Goodfellas (and sopranos). I like the lighter approach more, leads me to more rewatches. (Honorable mention to Heat btw - outstanding movie)

    T2 was a real game changer for me. First movie I ever saw that had that “event” like electricity in the theater. First R rated in a theater (I think). First movie we had to game plan for bc it kept selling out. And in the 80s I really didn’t go for the action flicks. Zero interest in die hard or Rambo or Arnold. Then I saw T2 and was like “wait, these movies are actually good? I thought it was just special effects.” Gamechanger

    That is a really god list! I like or love every one of those. Also, The Fall is in danger of falling out of our Great Movie Tournament. Have you been voting?

    Haha, well I'm always hoping more people get involved in the tournament, please do if you're into it. There's the general thread here: http://www.thedarktower.org/palaver/...Event-Overview You can follow all the polls from the first post there and just general info and stuff. Yeah it's a ambitious idea which will take years and I'm super glad everyone who's participating has been so supportive in nominating and voting.

    Fuck, I just realized I don't have Lion King and Toy Story in my Top 25. I might have to remedy that because they are both among the films that I've cherished since I first saw them.

    But which ones do I remove?...

    Top 25 is honestly just as difficult as Top 10. I kept switching movies in and out and I'm still not totally satisfied.

    There's just too many good movies out there!
