I’m not sure if this has already been done (surely it has) but I thought it’d be pretty cool to do a movie recommendation post. At first I wasn’t sure how to recommend movies to anyone, then I thought of doing it in an a-z list. That way it’s a bit different and I can’t recommended hundreds of movies (because I definitely would).
Anyways, the way this post works is pretty self explanatory. I’m going to be recommending 26 movies in a list that’s organised by their titles. If you don’t quite understand you will more as I continue!
For each movie I’m going to do something similar to what I did with my eBooks I Want To Read post. I’ll be getting all the synopsis’ from IMDB. Mainly because I suck at writing reviews and I’d probably be a little bit biased in said reviews!
Note: I’m excluding “a” and “the” from the titles! – Also, all of the below movies are horror/thriller because that’s my favourite genre and I really don’t watch many other genres! I might do another post in the future will a list of all genres!
