Top 31 favourite movies

Similarly to the top 100 book list, entries in no particular order except for the top 6 being a separate group.

I should point out that this (even more so than the books list) is a list of my favourite movies – not necessarily the best ones according to any sort of objective literary or artistic criteria. Thus, the list is rather a jumble of lowbrow and high…well, upper middlebrow titles, and no doubt includes a few fond memories that would not stand up to the test if I were to rewatch them today.
