Favorite MA Movies List


Here is my favorite MA Fiction movies list. It is not a complete list, and I will update it occasionally. I will be glad to get suggestions and working links from you and promise to try to watch and form an opinion about the MA movies or the episodes.
I recommend each of the items on this list. Some reflect warrior spirit, endurance, and striving to stay human and companionate in a middle of stressful even horrible situations. Some reflect great MA choreographic and techniques; some are simply a fun to watch; many comprise all the above dimensions. Those that I designated as "Must" are really to my mind great and a MUST, but it does not reduce the importance and the greatness of other titles in the list.
