Madelyn's Film Canon

I have always had a hard time ranking things. I never really liked it to be honest. I always like too many things and sometimes it's just really hard to articulate why I like something more than something else.

Anyway, I finally reworked this list. My rankings are never going to make sense and I'm just going to accept that. It's just long-winded.
