#TSB10 watchlist

For #TSB10, The Stop Button‘s tenth anniversary (running 20 February 2015 to 19 February 2016), I decided to let movielens do all the hard work and pick out the titles I’d be writing about. I post about one of movielens’s picks (or Top Picks, borrowing their phrasing) every Monday and Friday. I do not follow the order of the recommendations, just because I can’t plan on always having time for Doctor Zhivago.
