101 Greatest Movies (May 2013 Edition)

After watching and rating a further 100 films  (in three months... that's worrying!), making the list now add up to 300, I have again filtered the list down to the 101 greatest of these. This period of movie watching could be defined in part by the trends that inspired it. Disney movies, gay movies, anime films, Godzilla and my continuing attempt to complete the 1001 movies list contributed significantly to this list.
   The layout of the list has changed slightly from last time with an added feature, showing whether it is up, down (or wasn't there) from where it was in the previous list. An added note, the number one film was significantly lower last time because it is not extremely critcally appraised. However, for this list, it was my number one because it's one of the films I have seen the most and it grows in my affection every single time (and the soundtrack is the most listened to thing on my computer, great for writing!). It's just utterly wonderful. See you at the next 100!
