JUST FOR FUN

I do so little “just for fun” so I thought I’d modify a movie list from a FB friend and ask people to comment.  I only included the movies from the list that I’ve seen, that have been highly recommended, or that I would like to see.  I added  others I would recommend.  What have you seen that isn’t on the list but that you would recommend?  If it’s not marked I haven’t seen it but would like to.  If it has a (!) I would see it again.
