Ever-changing list of my 250 all-time favorite movies.
a list of 25 titles
My list of the 25 best films that revolve around a detective (whether a police officer, professional P.I., psychiatrist, or amateur sleuth) trying to solve a crime or discover the truth behind strange events.
a list of 50 titles
My list of the top 50 movies that will destroy your faith in humanity and ruin your outlook on life. Essentially, this is the opposite of the "Most Inspirational" list.

These movies make us feel that any attempt to pursue happiness, love, truth, justice, human dignity, personal gain, or the betterment of the world at large is nothing but a laughable exercise in utter futility.

Most of these movies end tragically, but even the few that do have ostensibly "happy" endings will still manage to confirm your belief that life is nothing but a cruel joke at your expense.

**Warning**: if you are feeling depressed or suicidal, these movies are not recommended.

a list of 50 titles
A list of the 50 most outright fun and entertaining movies of all time.

These films allow us to turn off our brains and simply enjoy their combination of action, adventure, romance, and comedy (whether intentional or not).

**Note: Certain films, despite being very fun, are excluded from this list if they cross a certain threshold of seriousness (Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, etc.) or if they are outright farces where the focus is more on gags/jokes than on the story (Austin Powers, Spaceballs, etc.)
a list of 75 titles
My list of the 75 most inspirational movies of all time.

These films rouse us to act upon our visions and convictions, to persevere in the face of adversity, and to make positive changes in our own lives and the world around us.

Whether these movies end happily or not, they are ultimately triumphant—both filling audiences with hope and empowering them with the spirit of human potential.
