..as your home collection, what would they be? By my friends rules we thought  up , we granted everyone the Star Wars trilogy and the Indiana jones first 3 films because we're all dorks and consider them holy trilogies.
  Different things we thought up is considering rewatchability, just having as part of the collection cuz you loved it that much, and you may or may not want to consider genres. Like you may want to have a Christmas movie on hand or a horror. To each his/ her own.

Wizard of Oz
Snow White
Citizen Kane
Quest for Fire
Miracle on 34th St
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
Sleeper
Annie
2001: A Space Odyssey
Point Break
Flirting With Disaster
Young Frankenstein
History of the World
Time Bandits
Fantasia
The Lion King

Color Purple
Shawshank Redemption
Slingblade
The Temptations
(I would be fine w/ The Five Heartbeats or Jacksons: an american dream but you asked for 15 and I can't take them all sadly)
Don't Be A Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice In The Hood
The Lion King
Ray
A Time To Kill
Grease Good Will Hunting
What's Eating Gilbert Grape
(I would be happy with most of Leo's movies though)
John Q or Man on Fire (Denzel should count as 1 movie because I love all his stuff and would take them all)
Bustin' Loose
The Marva Collins Story
(I feel about her work the way I do Denzel's, "Queen Cicely" is how I see her)
What's Love Got to Do With It (any Angela Bassett movie)
The Golden Child Coming To America (I would be happy with most of his stuff including comedy specials)


This is the worst thread ever (jk lol)! I am literally going crazy about all the movies I can't have!! Thank God this is not reality!

Ugh... this hurt haha SMH.

Edit: had to make changes. thanks for the reminders people, there are a lot of good lists!


Edit 2: I need 'I Robot' but I can't take movies off! Why???????? I think I'll have a hazmat suit and come out and I'll come across movies I didn't take.
