My Favorite Movies

I don't know how these rank amongst each other, I can only say that out of the movies I've seen, these movies really stand out to me as amazing works. Let me be clear in saying that this list isn't full of movies I think are "the greatest movies" of all time. just my personal favorites. I don't really have "one favorite movie" but I can usually pick out my favorite amongst genres.

Also, as a side note, I think some movies resonate greater with me if I'm in a certain mood when I watch them. Obviously you can't watch Schindler's List if you feel like having a laugh riot (unless you're anti-Semitic), and you can't watch certain movies if you're in a certain mood. However, I will strongly say that some movies get better if you watch it with the right mindset.

To kick off this list, which I will update from time to time as I feel like it is:

Almost Famous

"A high-school boy is given the chance to write a story for Rolling Stone Magazine about an up-and-coming rock band as he accompanies it on their concert tour."

This movie is a masterpiece...if you want it to be when you're watching it.
