top 250 movies...

These are the top 250 movies of all time -from IMDB(internet movie database)...
I've seen alot of them...!!

For the record, I'll star the ones I have seen. I really recommend all of the top 10... as for the top 250, all of them have merit but not all of them may be your thing.

Thinking back... some movies are really disturbing (i.e. clockwork orange -please dont see it if you arent 21+ i think) while some movies are so emotional it made me cry alot -.- (i.e. Nuovo cinema Paradiso)...

Movies are a way to experience great personal growth as well as entertainment... please enjoy a great movie as a masterpiece and take in all you can from it!
