    It's A Wonderful Life is one of the most beautiful movies I've ever seen. The ending always gets me in the feels.
    Let's get a little crazy.

    The Leopard Man has one of the finest scenes in all horror history. If you've seen it, you know the Mamacita scene. Terrifying to everyone I have ever shown it.
