Movie Recommendations

So. I updated my Movie Recommendations page. It’s funny. It started at this list:
What are your favorite movies?

Lord Of The Rings (1 movie in 3 very long parts)
The Passion of the Christ
Signs
Mercy Streets
Luther
Babe: Pig in the City
The Addiction
Phonebooth
Jonah: A Veggie Tales Movie
The Wild One
Godspell

Now it’s up to 53 films. (54 if you count my either or at number 23)

The numbers are not a ranking, but the order you should see them in.
