My Favorites on Netflix

I've been a Netflix user for several years, and while I love the DVD subscription service, almost as valuable to me has been the movie rating system. I have scoured the site which boasts over 50,000 titles and I believe every movie I've seen has been rated. Which tells me I've seen over 1500 films!! I had no idea what that number would be. The below are those films I've rated with 5 stars (out of five). If you're not a member, you certainly should be. If you are a member, you should be on my FRIENDS list - so drop me a message and I'll invite you.
