My Movie Diary (August 2010-March 2012)

Since August of 2010, I've been keeping a movie diary on the right-hand column of FILMICABILITY.   But now it's time for me to delete those titles on the sidebar in order to make room for newer titles. So, in one single post, I decided to group these 630 films and 14 TV series according to the grades I've given them.  This is really just a post for me, but it can be for you, too.   Just take all the titles in the A+/B range, and if there's anything you haven't seen on these lists, boy, update your Netflix list pronto, because you need to see these movies/TV series.   At any rate, I'm not commenting at all on these, except to say: AVOID those titles at the bottom!
