Moives You Should See

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.


I have been working for Domino's as long as some of my co-workers have been breathing. There is a generational cultural gap.  This led to somone  asking for a list of movies he should see. This was shortly after someone said "Exscuse me whlie I whip this out." and he hand no clue where it came from. Jerome and I started a little list. This is the full monty. (ok and "The Full Monty" to the list. "Waking Ned Devine" too.)

This list has been compiled from several sources. We all have our opinions. The first list includes films not on the other lists and some that are. It would be a good start. They should all be the un-edited for TV versions, as close to the theater release as possible.
