So, take the last fifty years and come up with a movie that you loved from each one. Maybe it won best picture-maybe it didn't. Maybe most critics hated it-but you loved it.Could you come up with a list? I did.Some are obvious, and some are not. Maybe some you never heard of them, or would never considering seeing.That is good. That is the point. Care to add a movie? Let us know.Care to disagree? Let us know. Regardless, here are my fifty movies, from fifty years I would recommend. Keep in mind-In some cases,I would have several from some years,but I chose one.
