110 great movies to watch

this is a list of the some of the nicest films I have watched throughout my life. I never like a film because I like the director (Love Tim Burton, hate Sweeney Todd) or because I love an actor (I adore Julia Roberts but hate My best Friend's Wedding with a passion) or because it is a certain Genre ( Love Horror, despise the Triangle). I fall in love with films which give me something to think about or genuinely entertain me. A good plot is a must but as a person who has always loved language, the dialogues really matter too. Hope you enjoy this list.
