This is going to be a massive list comprised of all the films I’ve seen in my lifetime. Starting from 1902 from the very beginning of cinema. This is more of a personal list, but if your curious to see all the films I’ve seen and maybe it will encourage you to check a particular film out, by all means take a look. Here are all the films I’ve seen in my lifetime. Enjoy. PS: A Trip to the Moon is the earliest film I saw which was released in 1902. However IMDb.com doesn’t have an image of the film. Therefore it will not be included in the list.
