The Noah Castle Film Awards (Epilogue)

The Noecitos have been handed for the first time!! That might look like nothing but it is actually a big deal to me. I think it is a great way to celebrate love for the movies. But there is a sad part and that not every movie can make the cut so I wanted to dedicate the epilogue to the 49 films that were in no way represented in the NCFAs. For math's sake I'll say that a total of 46 films were somehow mentioned during this year's festivities so that means that I've watched so far 95 eligible films.
Of course, the lack of these 49 films cannot be attributed to a single factor. Some had a lot of competence and some were just awful. So here they come: the forgotten ones!

The really good ones (a.k.a.  The "I can't believe they were not mentioned!")
