There is some overlap with my previous list, but this cannot be avoided. The last list had only 100 entries, but I don't think that type of cap makes sense for this one. In fact, it could go on and on and on, I'm not so much sure these movies represent being better than any other movies; instead they're just the first ones that came to my mind.

I like your lists. Just wondering. I know it's easier to put 100 movies in a list alphabetically if you are a movie lover. This is especially true when faced when having to pick a top ten. Can you do a top ten list of best movies you've ever seen?

Hey Kevin,
what's up...
That's a hard question, because if you asked me to name the ten greatest films of all time, I don't think I could tell you. I don't really feel qualified, but not taking into account quality of acting, directing, and writing of the screenplay, I'd have to say here's my top ten. These are my top ten just in terms of how powerful I thought they were or how much I enjoyed watching them: 1) Boys Don't Cry 2) Lulu on the Bridge 3) Blue Velvet 4) Apocalypse Now 5)Lumumba 6) Igby Goes Down 7)Wonder Boys 8) Mulholland Drive 9) Trainspotting 10) Motorcycle Diaries... You see I have no idea what I really know about film (at least compared to professional film critics), but I think these movies are all awesome.
