Lazy layout for now!

I have a very hard time watching movies, especially live-action ones. My brain and attention span are much more suited to cartoons and shorter media. I can watch 6 episodes of a cartoon in a row much more easily than I can convince myself to sit down and watch even a single movie. However, there are lots of movies I would like to watch eventually! Here is a partial list of them! The green boxes are movies I've crossed off my list, and the blue boxes are ones I still haven't seen.

I am by no means a movie buff (as explained above lol), so please don't get mad if I mislabel genres or don't explain the movie very well. They are in no particular order, either. Also, some of these movies might be a little intense! Be safe and informed if you decide to watch any of them!
