Can I ask people to please not mention films that have already been added or at least to highlight which ones have already been added? Thanks.
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

That was the initial idea, then I noticed that the big list hadn't been updated, so I posted it all rather than go through everyone's nominations to see if they'd been listed.
