Lists by bwolskin-9
Both as actor and director...I have not seen Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, Invictus and Jersey Boys.
This is not a list of 2012 films,as I've seen only a few but of all the films I've watched,with many classic films that I have finally had the pleasure to see, and some of which I must say disappointed me...I will give my rating for each film as well.
It's been a few years since I updated this list and in that time I've seen enough movies,from classics to new ones plus films that I have re-evaluated,that I thought it was time to make a new one and keep the old one for those who want to compare...there are even a few films which have cracked the top 100 which is extremely difficult to do.
I must confess I think Scorsese's films are highly overrated,with the exception of Goodfellas and Raging Bull, but he is such a skilled director that his films are always worth seeing.
Oscar winning films for best picture...from best to worst.If there is an oscar winning film not on here it's because I haven't seen it yet.
IMDb only allows 250 films at a time,so i have marked each list from where they would start.I am not a movie critic just a lover of film and have seen and rated over 5000 movies.Lists are always subjective and doing a list of 1000 even more so,but that's part of the fun.My list will probably not appeal to the modern film lover,since i have very few movies from the last 30 years on my top 250,but if you keep looking you will begin to see more and more newer films.Remember this is my list,so if you don't like i dare you to make your own.:)
Considered the greatest year in motion pictures and it's hard to argue.
Prior to 1924 i have seen only a few films and not worth doing a list of best films when i've only seen 3 or 4 movies from those years,so that's why i'm starting from 1924.
As with my favorite Actors list-I will pick the film that i think they gave their best performance,that doesn't mean it's their best film.
The criteria for making this list is that the director must have a body of work that has stood the test of time,that is why there are very few modern directors on here.
As with my favorite directors list the actors on here have a body of work-you will see no new actors on here.I will also list the film that I think is their best performance,that does not mean it's their best film.
A list of over 100 films that are so bad if i could give them a zero i would.There is no order and to say which is the worst would be impossible.There are a few films on here with big name stars but most are horror films a genre that i love but in all honesty produces more garbage than any other genre.
IMDb will only allow 250 movies at a time and the next list you make starts at 1 again but technically i'm starting at 251.IMDb does not have listed a compilation of chaplin shorts called Charlie Chaplin the Early Years Vol.1.It may be because i saw this on VHS and may not be available on DVD.It would be 139 on this list or 389 in the top 500.
