 Kategorilere Göre Tarihi Filmler Listesi

Merhaba arkadaşlar daha önce sizlere beğendiğim 100 ganster film listemi sunmuştum.şimdi de arşivimi hazırlarken yararlandığım tarihi filmler listesini sizlere sunmak istiyorum.umarım siz değerli sinemacılara yararlı olur.....

liste Wikipedia, IMDb ve dan yararlanılarak hazırlanmıştır.biraz uzunca bir liste o bakımdan aynı konudan devam edeceğim.

What do the X's mean? The X's just indicate the ones I either have not watched or I have watched but have no review or a puny review. It's just a way to keep me from buying two copies of the same movie. I buy a bunch at a time and then watch them all. Then I buy another batch, etc. It's hard to remember what I have done and what I have not done, hence the X's. patrick L cooney
