Top 25 From 2001by Bridget | created - 02 Feb 2011 | updated - 03 Feb 2011 | Public
THE best year in cinema IMO. I can only say that because its the one year where I have the most films listed that I absolutely love. 1999 is another fantastic year as well as some in the 60s and 70s, but 2001 is king. Comments welcome
For some reason, when Im on my work computer, I cant make lists. it keeps deleting whatever I enter so I will get this done when I go home :(
