Vinny's favesby killagrain | created - 26 Dec 2016 | updated - 4 months ago | Public
My favorite movies in no particular order..... I enjoy originality, quality characters, interesting dialogue and don't mind a sprinkle of cheese here and there. I have also tried to steer away from the standard top 50 movies like Godfather, Star Wars etc.
