The Movie Meme

I picked this meme up from Beth.
 
SUPPOSEDLY if you've seen over 85 films, you have no life. Mark the ones you've seen. There are 239 films on this list. Copy this list, go to your own blog, paste this as a note. Then, put x's next to the films you've seen, add them up.Have fun!

I scored 72 which I think is more a reflection on the movies in this list than my life.  For instance, there would be a very different score if the Star Trek movies were included.  And what movie list would include Sixteen Candles but not The Breakfast Club produced around the same time?
 
J picked up The Breakfast Club on DVD for under $10 and we watched it again last weekend.  It's still brilliant.  I wish the makers of films today would realise that a good plot/dialogue/charachter is more important than OTT special effects.  Special effects can augment an already good movie (such as Narnia, Total Recall, etc) but are no substitute for a plot (remember Batman Returns?  No, neither do I).
 
We also saw Death at a Funeral at the movies.  It's really funny but I would wait for the DVD - I don't think it needs a big screen to be appreciated.

Oh hell - I got 98 and most of them I'm not at all proud of. Completely with you on The Breakfast Club!

I score 95, but I can probably list a couple of hundred more that are not on the list and many of those are quite sad indeed - back to the future (1,2, and 3) for example?

But I do have a life, honest, I just spend quite a bit of it watching films ;-)

Beth said...

Ah... the John Hughes years. :) Awkward times... LOL I'd never want to be that age again!

Andrea said...

113, and anyone who says that I have no life doesn't know how to knit and watch a dvd at the same time.

I ROCK!

(Besides, that was missing a few sequels that have come out since - and yes, I've seen them all and knitted at the cinema too!)
