Shadie's All-time Favourites, Hidden Gems, etc

The most subjective of all lists... the favourites, no justification needed. Covers everything from those I watched on repeat as a kid, to the guilty pleasures, to the movies no-one seems to know about, to the most enjoyable from various directors and genres. A lot of fun was had watching these movies, though I don't necessarily expect you to feel the same way.

All-Time Favourites, Hidden Gems, Guilty Pleasures, Favourite Directors (Kurosawa, Kubrick, Coen Brothers, Luis Buñuel, Satyajit Ray, Hitchcock, David Cronenberg, Peter Jackson, Terry Gilliam, Tim Burton, John Woo, Miike), Action Movies, Comedies, Musicals, Horror, Animations, Childhood Faves, Documentaries, Serious Fare
