33 Years, 33 Movies

Another year, another list of Craig's favorite movies. As with any list I put together, I'm sort of underwhelmed. I look at it and see a bunch of "obvious" choices. But what am I expecting? It's my list. I made it. And the films on it are the ones that best represent me. I'm never going to be able to look at it and think, "Wow, he really surprised me there!" And if you've been reading this site for any significant amount of time, I'm sure they won't surprise you either. Oh well. I can't lie. Cinematically, this is who I am. Here are my 31 and 32 lists.
