THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY

 A list of films published by the Insider gave the 100 Films Everyone Should Watch In Their Lifetime. But as ever the list is very subjective and questionable. There are obvious omissions and some that are listed that I feel do not deserve to be on the list. The list lacks comedy.
