Films I've Seen (1900s -present)by ialex1 | created - 18 Jun 2012 | updated - 11 months ago | Public
I regret seeing most of these movies for some were from my childhood. Looking back at them as lower rated films I found them to be just awful. Still some some very good and amazing titles on this list. I can't believe I've seen all of these movies though. There's so much to enjoy and love from cinema and so much to hate. All and all I think it's the best form of art ever created. I will always love movies!
