Movie Recommendations

People are always asking for movie recommendations so here you are.  All highly recommended by me. One day I’ll get around to updating this list.

95% of them are available on Netflix streaming.  These are only my 5 star and 4 star rated movies. Other than 5 star or 4 star they are in no particular order. Enjoy!

There are 345 Movies on the list so it should keep you satisfied for at least a year.

One day I might organize them by genre but for now that’s just too much work.
