Movies I'm Constantly Craving...by Foziki | created - 04 May 2011 | updated - 08 May 2011 | Public
This is a list of movies that I just can't stop thinking about. I will watch them, feel great about myself, and the next day crave it again and again. Some aren't necessarily 10/10 movies, but they still plague my thoughts on a daily basis. I know I probably left heaps of great movies off, but this is a pretty good start. They are in no particular order as well.
