Like many other average Americans, I'm a sucker for those moving pictures. About the only thing I ever do when I "go out" is watch a movie (or two). I have seen far too many to mention, as most of us have, but I have a few favorites. I thought about dividing my list of favorite movies by who's in them, by genre, and stuff like that, but I ultimately decided just to make a list.

Eventually, for most of these movies, I'll try to have links to resources about them, such as reviews, cast lists, whatever.
