Here now is the fully updated list of my top 365+ movies, the list I first counted down throughout 2014 and that now features 55 additional films. I’ve already dedicated a post to these list-worthy films that I’ve seen over the last two years. These additions, or replacements in this case, are in bold below.

Only three films were able to crack my Top 100 (Taking Chance, Serenity, and The Truman Show), while most of the other additions are in the lower half. Sequels, such as the third Hobbit film and the first two Die Hard sequels, have been grouped with their original film’s ranking.

Upon retrospect, I’ve also rearranged some of the films’ original rankings. Some rose through the list, such as Jumpin’ Jack Flash, Raising Arizona, Castle in the Sky, and Aliens, while others dropped further down, like The Color Purple and The Untouchables. The only change to my Top 50 is the raising of Elizabethtown because I realized just how much I love that movie. I’m sure there will be many more List-Worthy movies to come, but this is the most up-to-date list (as of January 2016) for anyone curious about my favorite films.
