My Personal Movies of the Year 2016-1896

I'm a movie lover, not a movie expert or critic. There will be some who will be miffed that "The Godfather part II" isn't in the 1974 slot, but no gripes if they want to list it there for their own list. I don't claim to keep in universal taste, only my own. As I watch more movies in the coming years I have no doubt that changes will occur. As limited the access is to get as many titles as are available in earlier decades, some will be a matter of default until I get the right opportunity to expand. And yes, I have a John Wayne/Disney/Superhero bias.
