101 Films That Shaped Me.

My 101 must see films. So this list is not a top ten situation. I do have a top ten of films, but doing a bigger more expansive list might actually give some readers of this blog something to dig into if choosing what film to watch next is something you regularly find yourself researching. If it is in this list, then it means I have given the film my official seal of approval as a FANTASTIC film. Worthy of watching when you are in the mood? Hell yes. I am not ashamed to include many 80s films here, which although they seem to age in a different way, does not take away from the fact that the films are still fantastic and helped to shape my personality. Anyway, here goes.

My Top Ten:

  1. Aliens
  2. Enter The Dragon
  3. Withnail & I
  4. The Blues Brothers
  5. Star Wars Original Trilogy
