100 Favorite Films

Not the films I think are the best, but those which mean something special to me; not The Godfather or Citizen Kane, but Speed Racer and Star Wars.

Updated 12/9: added several new films, lowered some that were more "great" than they were "favorites," and pointlessly agonized about everything above #50; the bottom 5 feel really rough.
