Lachlan's Films of the Years

Because I've been doing this stupid thing in my notes anyway so why not do something with it.
Most of these rankings are for movies I haven't seen in years (or even decades); thus my opinions in many cases are based on a weird hybrid of nostalgia, hindsight, or the Reception section of a Wikipedia page. I've tried to remember in each case what my actual opinion is (or was), but sometimes you can't avoid these things leaking in. Are the ones near the top always better films than ones beneath? Certainly not. But in general I remember enjoying them more. Not that my opinion matters at all - which calls into question the purpose of creating this thing in the first place - but I don't know, it was a bit of fun.
