Movie Meme

I saw this over here, and given that I've seen a lot of movies recently, I thought it somewhat appropriate. We usually watch the same movies over and over again, or find some horrible B-movie on cable - as Jake adores a REALLY shitty movie. In the last few weeks, though, we've both rented and gone to the theatre more than we normally do in a whole year.

What have wee seen?

Gran Torino - Totally worth paying movie theatre prices. FANTASTIC movie (and not just because it was filmed in Detroit, but I did recognize a fair amount of things in the movie!)

Burn After Reading - Typical Cohen brothers movie. Funny in it's own way, 3 out of the 4 of us that watched it enjoyed it, but Jake's dad - not so much!

Black Snake Moan - Ran across this sort of by accident at Blockbuster. I had wanted to see it at the movies when it was new, and never got around to it. I highly recommend it, excellent story.

Hancock - Meh.

Righteous Kill - Disappointing. I expect WAY better than this from Pacino & DeNiro!

Vanilla Sky - Came across it at Blockbuster, and I forgot how much I loved this movie. One of the few films I saw multiple times in theatre (though twice was at the cheap seats, only once full price!)

Now, onto the Meme :)

SUPPOSEDLY if you’ve seen over 85 films, you have no life.

There are 239 films on this list. Copy this list, go to your own blog, paste this . Then, put x’s next to the films you’ve seen, add them up, change the header adding your number, and click post at the bottom. Have fun.

Grand Total 81.

Apparently I'm close to lifeless. . . though I'd love to know the rationale of whomever put this together to begin with. . . quite the odd mix of films!

Knitwise, I swatched for both Surface and Oblique this weekend. . . . . I am torn on which one to officially start, though!

I have seen 79 of these I think but I have seen waaaay more films than this: no James Bonds, or Picnic at Hanging Rock, Chariots of Fire, Priscilla, Muriel's Wedding, The Enchanted Cottage, Shakespeare in Love and now I will spare you me typing a bazillion film titles!! I definitely have no life.
Good job luck!!
