A list of movies, compiled by decade, to watch during the holidays. Based on my preferences and what’s available on Netflix, Headweb, iTunes and my DVD-shelf. Compiling the list i realized the 80ies was a totally retarded decade when it came to movies and that I’m not much for comedies. 100′s should be added of course, but these are the ones we’re starting out with. Enjoy.
