Top 20 Films

Here's one version of my list, in alphabetical order...

Although I'm happy with today's choices, next time I'd want to include other categories like - animation, comedy, anthology, art house, silent film, cult, foreign, romance... but never 'romantic comedy'!

You really think Excaliber belongs there? I mean, it's so overdone! Especially Merlin. And that skullcap he wears, damn is it stupid.

Entertaining movie though, no doubt, just not sure I would say it was one of the 20 best.
