Six Years, 100 Movies

Six years is the iron anniversary, so enjoy this…horse with a nose piercing?

It’s the 6th anniversary of The Horse’s Head! As I reflect on the 600+ movies I have covered so far on the blog, I wanted to do something a little different. This is a list of my 100 favorite movies I have covered on the blog so far. Please keep in mind this is not my pick for the 100 greatest movies ever, nor my 100 all-time favorites. Think of these more as my Horse’s Head staff picks. Most were favorites before I started this list, but a surprising amount are movies I discovered here for the first time. Presented in alphabetical order, because ranking takes too much time.

Thanks for sticking with me for six years. More to come.

Happy Viewing,

Tony
