Wow, that’s quite a lot – especially when considering that I didn’t even see a 2005 film until the middle of March. I believe I went over 80 by a few.

Oh, and it is color coded for the Holidays! Red = positive, Green = negative, Blue = mixed.

My friends and I went out to an expensive holiday dinner this past Saturday. I was the only one who forgot to wear Red/Green. I was wearing blue. Oops. Forutnately, I realized that I was just representing Hannukah. We had a politically correct holiday dinner, indeed.

    obsessive moviegoers who need obsessive moviegoers are the luckiest obsessive moviegoers in the world.

  • i've seen 91 so far this year and you've seen 83 but i still haven't seen 1/2 your list.

    it just goes to show that you can never see them all.

  • 'A History of Violence' and '2046' are among my favorites too, but I've only seen 17 2005 productions/U.S. releases this year.

    But I did saw 'Last Days' and 'King Kong' lately. The latter only 'cause my girlfriend took me, mind, and the lack of editing and abundance of melodrama aside, was unexpectedly entertained. I liked 'Last Days' as well, although it wasn't as interesting as Gerry and Elephant. But that don't matter. So yeah. Whatever.
