All of these movies I know are bad; or at the very least imperfect but I still enjoy them because they're fun to watch. Most have no pretension and go for the cheap laugh or thrill which anyone can appreciate sometimes.
Here's a list of bad movies that I really can't understand anyone liking. Yet for some strange reason they have high ratings on this website.
Let me be clear, I don't hate most of these movies. I appreciate the more highly lauded films for their cinematic accomplishments and some I'd even recommend but for all their accolades, they just don't do it for me. Some are just too long. Others are not my personal taste. And yes, some are actually pretty bad.
You know exactly what I'm talking about. For every serious or semi-serious list of "Greatest Films Ever" there are always 25 or so that, while being perfectly good films, have become cliche. I think their constant appearances on such lists hurt them in the long run. Younger audiences become acquainted to the tropes, characterizations and camera tricks that were formed from these films and as a result see them as marginal, overrated and at best "required viewing." Like in baseball where numbers are retired, these 25 movies should be placed in the top shelf to let others have a chance to shine.
As of March 1st 2012 I have watched 2900 films over the course of my life (give or take a few). With a few left to go until 3000, I have left my viewing schedule to my friends and family. 100 movies all of which I will see within the year. The rules I have set for myself are simple. They have to be films I have not seen, they have to be full length features and I will only watch what they suggest and nothing more.

Many of these films even movie buffs haven't seen but still manage to make an impact. I hardily recommend all of these titles.
This is a list of movies whose morals I would argue are misguided or at the very least muddled by the events in the movie itself. Of course this is all pretty subjective and many of these films I do like, so take my comments with a grain of salt.
This is a list of actors and actresses that despite having talent or even the potential for talent, make for the most part terrible films (at least from what I've seen).
This is a list of 35 movies every teen should see before they turn 19.
This is a list of 30 movies every young person should see before they turn 26
Everyone's got a few films they are embarrassed to admit they haven't seen. Especially movie fanatics like myself.
This is a list of Directors who's work I have seen and enjoyed. Unfortunately people like John Cassavetes, Yasujiro Ozu and Spike Jonze aren't on here cause I haven't seen many of their films. My criteria is I have to have seen at least 2 movies by them and liked at least 2.
All Rated 1 to 10
I am giving each major category twice as many nominees as it would normally receive.
