Movies I would recommend to those needing movie recommendation from a random guy who posts them on teh internetz even though nobody asked him to do that :-)

I believe any viewer (reasonably open-minded, and not excessively critical or overly demanding) should more or less enjoy movies listed here.

Some are masterpieces, most are not, but I liked them all. There are no Top 250 and such here, as those are rather obvious choices.

Cheers!


P.S.
