Favourite Filmsby ejacobs23 | created - 4 months ago | updated - 3 weeks ago | Public
I get entertained highly by films in three ways: Emotionally, creativity and stupidity.
Basically if it connects with me deeply through various emotions (usually laughter (is that an emotion?) or sadness), I can appreciate it for its creative and thus immersion in the craft or the film is downright stupid and I love it for how bad it is then it'll be one of the films I love most. This list is purely ranked on entertainment and not the quality, I appreciate the classic "snob" films but they hardly as entertaining to me as these films.
Also Swiss Army Man is number one for fitting all three categories.
