Hello there


HOKAY. I usually don't go around just 'looking for people to add me,' like to seem needy or desperate or anything. I just have plenty of LJ music friends, but hardly any movie ones. And both are my life, so, here I am. And I'm an avid list maker. So even if nobody adds me, I at least get satisfaction out of writing this list. Oh, and I consider the the '60s and '70s 'classic.' Anything past 30 years can not be contemporary anymore. Seriously. Anyway, enough yackity-yack time:

(these are all selective/ATM. Because you can't really expect me to include EVERY movie I've loved. I think I've only fully hated about three!)

I tried to keep it short, lol. And there's really no order to the lists for the most part. Also, I think Citizen Kane and Breathless are highly overrated. But it could just be from having them shoved down my throat in almost every film class I've taken. Yeah...that's about it. End of rant. XD
