    I've been trying to catch up with this trend about giving yourself a personal challenge every year. I had a little inconvenient but I'm ready to set the ball rolling.

    So this year I didn't plan anything big or complex. I've had this idea about starting to appreciate cinema a lot more for quite some time. I've Always been a fan of movies but haven't seen much of classic stuff.

    I'd like to hear suggestions about your favorite movies or anything you recommend. Here's my top 5 list if anyone is curious (not in order):
    • Fight club
    • Inception
    • The Accountant
    • The Godfather
    • The Godfather II
    Any comment/suggestion is welcome!:)

    Nice list man!

    Mr. Church and 16 blocks are something new for me. As for the others, I've watched them. they're really good!

    Unpopular opinion:
    Nolan's trilogy has a special place in my heart. As you may already know, most people take TDK over TDKR, but I personally prefer TDKR over TDK. Don't get me wrong though, I really, really like Heath's Joker, but man, the scene where Batman escapes from the prison is just breath-taking, definitely my favorite.

    Thank you for Smoking - I learned more about how the world works and selling / negotiation from this movie than from anywhere else.
    Boss of Bosses
    Lord of War - Again a good movie to get an overview how the world works.
    Psycho - really appreciate how certain scenes were handled back when there was no CGI and fancy props etc.

    I'd say go with famous producer/director, there are some gems in their early work. Except that, I'm trying to watch the top100 of best rated movies on IMDB.

    Ridley Scott : Alien, Black Rain, Gladiator, Hannibal, Black hawk Down, Kingdom of Heaven, The Martian
    James Cameron : Terminator & Terminator 2, Aliens, True Lies, Titanic, Avatar
    Martin Scorsese : Taxi Driver, Raging bull, Goodfellas, Casino, Gangs of New York, The Departed, Shutter Island, The Wolf of Wall Street
    Christopher Nolan : Memento, Batman Begins, the Prestige, the Dark Knight, Inception, The dark knight rises, Man of steel, Interstellar
    And all of Quentin Tarantino's work

    Ew. Nolan's Batman trilogy was like salt in an open wound. Christian Bale was a horrible Batman, and the trilogy itself had the plot of a fanfiction written by a teenage girl with emotional problems.

    I honestly can't name my top 5 movies. I love so many, and I discover something new that I love every week.

    I'm currently crushing on Chris O'Dowd so I'm watching anything with him in it.
