47 for 46 for 45
I'm 45 years old, and was born in 1970, which was 46 years ago, but the 47th year since 1970.
 
In any case, I thought I'd list 47 of my favorite movies since 1970.
 
You may ask, "Where's the Godfather and Part II?" I never actually saw them, only a re-eedited "novel for television" while a teenager. I need to do that.
 
"Where's Raging Bull?" This is about my favorite movies that I like to rewatch, not necessarily the most artistically excellent.
 
"Where's Stanley Kubrick?" If I'm listing the top 100 or 200, he'd be there a few times.
 
"Where's Ferris Bueller?" It might have resonated more with you more than me.
 
"Where's Dirty Dancing? Grease? Titanic?" Not here.
 
"Why is it heavily laden with movies from the 70's?" Because either movies were better back then, or I have a greater affcection for them because I was young and less critical.
 
This list is not a ranking. It's what poppoed into my head as I wrote. 
 
"So why is the top of the list what any 45 year-old American white guy would put there?" Becuase I'm a 45 year-old American white guy.
