1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (2021 Edition)

List made from the book 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die. This list just from the 2021 edition, so you'll not see deleted movies as in other list.

Also my list sorted backwards, thus i think it's easier to watch this way from newer movies.

By popular demand - collections that were used in the book were switched to first entry only, i.e. Toy Story and Fellowship of the Ring.
