"No matter how many movies you watch, there is always one more that that you must watch" thats a motto I have followed while watching movies... Keeping with the same motto here is a list of movies that i want to watch. Movies are from all over the world and of all genres. Movies are in no particular order. New titles will be added to the list regularly as I come across a movie that I want to watch. That apart, titles will also be removed from the list once I have seen them.
