My Favorite Films: These are films that moved me, touched my heart, filled my spirit, made me laugh or made me cry, uplifted me or completely devestated me. Some of them made me feel. Some made me think. Some of them surprised me. Some made me laugh out loud. Some stunned me visually and audibly. Some gave the Best acting of the decade. None of them made me feel as if i wasted my time watching and liking or loving them.
