What would my daily life be without movies? You may not know it but I’m passionate about film for a long time, I even made my memory in party on a unique American documentary filmmaker: Frederic Wiseman. It is also true that every year I try to go around the award winning films and maintain this passion for the big screen. Because, as more and more people today, I do not watch anything on television (except sometimes Arte or France 5 in replay) because it no longer corresponds to my expectations. However, between standardized and hollow programs, extension advertisements and films that loop every year, I can’t find myself. Plus it’s a pity to have a Panasonic home theater system and not to use it thoroughly!

That’s why I propose today a list of 100 movies to see or review, sorted by genre, as well as a link to Allociné if you want to know more! In this list I voluntarily ruled out the sagas like Starwars, Harry Potter, the Lords of the years, the Marvels and other DC comics because I think we know them at least all of the name, needless to recommend them again!

I hope this list of non-exhaustive films will amuse you during your evenings cocooning!
