The Movie Ranking List

The idea is pretty simple. Rank every movie I've ever seen in my life. The execution of such a list... that could be more difficult. 

There's a million "Best Movies Ever" lists and I'm not trying to mimic those. This is my list based on my personal preferences. In short, it's a blend of my favorites mixed with their historical importance 

This is an ongoing work in progress. Rankings will inevitably change as I see more (and remember what I've seen ) and as my taste evolves over time.

  42. The Night of the Hunter
  43. 101 Dalmatians

  45. Armageddon

1/15/19 - The feeble beginning of the list. I looked over AFI's Top 100 List and went with what I've seen. A few personal favorites thrown in like Lebowski, Casino, and Goodfellas. Armageddon (45) tossed in at the bottom of the list for fun. Don't anticipate it getting any higher than where it is now.
