Joel’s Top One Hundo

When people ask me my favorite movies I’m really bad at thinking of them. Maybe if I make and maintain this list I will have some idea of the movies I like. This is a rough approximation of my current Top 100 films in a rough approximation of order. 

PS: I tried to limit myself to movies that are fresh enough in my memory that I know I still like them. Otherwise my adolescent obsession with Forrest Gump and then Enter the Void would be reflected on this list.

Edit: Any movies that get ranked out by new additions I’ll leave on the list. So technically this is my top 100+!
