Mega Movie List

"My Favorite Movies of all Time"

(Dedicated to Skye, “who never knows what movie to rent at the video store”).


This list has been compiled because I love movies, acting, and Hollywood so much. The movie theater is like church to me, a sacred place. Movies and plays are creations of life. They are a wonderfully efficient way to evoke emotional response for a world that is generally shut off from their emotions and to shift consciousness for humans who go to the movies “to just be entertained”.

I love every possible genre of movies that exists, from thriller to drama to romantic comedies - every one of them has value in regards to human consciousness and just for fun.. And of course I love the stage, the original medium of transformation, and lets not forget TV, a fabulous medium of information and disinformation.

Everyone loves movies, because you get to look into other peoples lives, you get to imagine what it is like to be them and to imagine yourself in similar situations, what you would do under those circumstances. We are all fascinated with other people’s lives because we are all voyeurs, because we love everyone, and because we are all one.

Movies show us how life is, how it could be, and sometimes how it should be. I love movies because life is a movie, in fact life is one big dramedy. We are the actors, the producers, the directors, and the audience of our own movie, our own play that we are continuously creating and starring in. Will you be the star of your own movie, the big movie, the Co-Creation of Heaven on Earth, or will you just be an extra, a filler in the scene?

Thankyou to everyone who has ever involved themselves in the creation of movies, the theater and television - for you have helped create one of the greatest mediums of transformation ever to grace planet earth.

I also wish to thank Darryl Hickman, the greatest acting teacher ever, who taught me how to be a divine actor and how to truly “act” in life - Moment to Moment. “All the world’s a stage and we are all merely players, with our many entrances and exits…” W.S.

“When I’m good I’m really good, but when I’m bad, I’m even better.” Mae West.

"Movies are the only time your psychic centers shut down and 'you' can come out" - Bryan de Flores

The below list is my super excellent list. There have been hundreds of others that I could include in the very good category, but I have chosen to just list my very favourite films that I believe to have special significance and which touched me personally, or I just really enjoyed for good fun.
