Below is the fourth remix of my compulsively compiled Top 365 favorite movie list! Please refer to my previous blogiversary post for all the details on what was added and dropped from the prior iteration, though all of the new additions are in bold type so as to be easily spotted.

As with last year’s update, the Top 200 haven’t been touched too much, with only three cracking the Top 100. The most notable riser might be the Star Wars sequels, since grouping The Last Jedi with The Force Awakens raised the latter much higher than it was. The highest dropper is The Blind Side, which is still sitting pretty at #103; I just realized that #40 was probably too high for it.

As usual, it’s further below that things have been shaken up more significantly. Most of the anime films have risen higher, while the likes of The Iron Lady (-65), Fiddler on the Roof (-58), and WarGames (+106) have been shuffled quite a bit differently than last time. Of course, I believe in combining franchises, so you’ll see that Cars 3, Creed, The Conjuring 2, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 have been added to their respective predecessors. Plus, I cheated a bit by granting a tie to Ordinary People and Rabbit Hole, due to their similarities in tone and subject matter, and to both the animated and live-action versions of Disney’s Cinderella. Interestingly, Psycho is still at #365, so I guess I just like ending the List with my favorite Hitchcock film.

Thus and therefore, I present my Top 365 Movie List, all films I’d gladly watch anytime (and often do, depending on my mood). This is strictly a personal ranking, but I’d love to hear your thoughts, opinions, and/or recommendations! There are plenty more movies out there to see, and I can’t wait to discover what might earn its way on here next year. Once again, I wish everyone a very happy 2018!
