Favorite Movies

Totally just my personal preference.

I did not rate movies part of a series (with some exceptions), movies that were animated, superhero movies, or movies that I do not have a strong recollection of. Hence, this is only about ~120 of the ~200 movies I know I've watched.

Rating scale: 4 = all-time favorite; 3 = this is a good movie, you should definitely watch it; 2 = this was average for me; 1 = I don't like this.

** for movies I've watched two times, and *** for movies I've watched three times.
