Top 5…films

Man, this was a tough one. I’m making a DVD of my final cut for my exec producers to view and while I author it, I have a bit of down time waiting for certain renderings and exports. So, I started thinking about films, as my mind mostly gravitates to, and then I started thinking about my favorites and decided, hell, I have some time right now, why not make a list of my top 5.

Well… that quickly became impossible so I broke the list down into genres. And while this was most difficult to decide on “favorites”, I created a list of top 5’s for most popular genres, except for Gangster/Crime, I listed ten. This genre tends to have more of my favorite films than others so I chose to expand it…

Here goes!
