There area few anomalies in there, but they are sentimental such as the movie my wife and I saw on our first date, etc. Those movies are only rated high because of that. I think there's only 3 or 4 of those in there but they would have received 4 stars anyway.
My netflix ratings are missing several films, which why I made the manual list above, for you. As you can tell, my "tastes" are probably not too far off from yours with the exception of a few films.
Actually we are further apart than either of us imagined by the looks of it.

Thats covers most of my favorite watches of all time, I'm sure there are a few missing.
I had to discriminate from hundreds of others that I liked, liked enthusiastically etc.
There another asian classic which is bugging the shit out of me title wise, but it was the ultimate revenge thriller in which a guy is imprisoned for like 10 years in a room, for reasons he doesnt know, but when he is released that is when his pain begins.I cant give its most indentifiable attribute, plot feature wise, cause its the biggest most epic twist I'd seen since Sixth Sense suffice it to say that it was the most hideous sickening revenge that you could take on a man, what was involved, guvnnahhhhhhh.
I'll remember it in time, im sure..
