As you grow out of childhood and are exposed to more and more movies, you start to learn your likes and dislikes. Obviously, tastes change- part of the beauty of being human is that we grow emotionally and intellectually- and things we may not have liked at younger ages become the kinds of movies that we enjoy later.

I passed a milestone recently here at TDYLF. Thanks to the help of the editors over at IMDB, I passed the 100,000 Hits milestone on Sunday (with a whopping 80,000+ of those hits coming just since September 30th).

As such, this has the potential to become a series- 100 Things I Love About Horror Movies, 100 Things I Love About Foreign Movies, and on and on. I present to you the first edition of “100 Things I Love About the Movies”.
