Bailey’s Favorite Movies (Right Now)

“What are your favorite movies of all time?” God, that answer is hard. It’s like when an interviewer says “So…tell me about yourself,” and you suddenly forget who you are.


But I get it. It’s a quick way to gauge how I perceive movies—and whether or not it aligns with your personal movie preferences. The problem is I like a lot of movies from all kinds of genres, so it’s hard to narrow down favorites. But I’ll try. Keep in mind that what I’m about to give you will change over time and isn’t a list of what I consider the “best movies of all time.” It’s just a list of my personal favorites. Without further ado…
