50 Movies I Believe You Should Watch

50 Movies I Believe You Should Watch

There is an unspoken agreement this site is primarily about books, which is technically true. I've historically reviewed way more books than movies or television series, but I'm looking to even it out in 2017. As a token of good faith, here's a list of 50 movies I've reviewed on Dead End Follies that I believe you should watch. Because they're fucking great. And because movies are a blast. Think of these as my editor's choice. I've reviewed more or less 600 films since 2009 and these are my very favorites.

Click on the link to access the review and apologies in advance for the missing thumbnails and bizarre formatting. hosting a website for many years involves a lot of maintenance. And I do it as I find the mistakes, I'm sure you'll notice. The opinions and insight are there, though. So, if you hate one of these movies you can call me out on it.

Here they are. How many have you seen? If you guys enjoy this, leave a comment here or on Facebook. I might post another top 50 this Spring.
