The scary part, there are so many movies I've seen that aren't on this list, so I've seen way beyond 180 movies in my life time. Oh and what about the movies on this list I've seen more than once? I've watched all the Scream movies 10 times each. I watched Kung Fu Hustle twice yesterday because it was on cable. I watched the east coast feed, then the west coast feed. I love that movie. I've watched the Lord of the Rings trilogy so many times it's not even funny.

Looking forward to the Oscars tonight. I'd like to see Jennifer Hudson from American Idol win, just because it's one of those stories that you love to hear. Of course I hope to catch a glimpse of George Clooney, too.

How can one not see at least 85 movies in a lifetime? I will contend that one does not have a life if they've not seen at least 85 movies! Going out to the movies with friends and family is very social.

I will have to do this meme at some point. Didn't you love Kung Fu Hustle?! That movie cracked me up!

Monsoon said...

I agree with sue, 85 is WAY to low a number for our generation, I have 104 on your list and that is only, i am guessing, the top grossing movies of all time? ALthough there were ALOT of horror movies listed there, and I don't do horror.

That seems to be a very low number of movies.... I'm sure I've seen WAY more than that! And I think I have a life :)
