When We lived in DC





The Challenge

The other day I was thinking about movies. I can't exactly remember my trail of thought, but somehow I was lead to wondering how many movies I've seen in my life. Have you ever thought about that? You've probably seen hundreds (thousands?). Isn't that crazy?! Anyway, thinking about it made me want to actually figure out how many movies I've watched in my cinema-filled life. I wondered if I really could recall all of those movies. Well, let's see how I do.

I'm not using any kind of online list or anything. We're going strictly from memory here 
I'm not counting documentaries or TV movies 
I used a couple of categories to make it a little easier on myself

***Ok, I wrote this blog post last night. This is a little update. Trying to list off all of these movies was super fun / super hard. It brought back tons of memories, it made me laugh looking at how my train of thought works sometimes, and I even got Camaron involved. I highly recommend trying this. I had to stop where I did because it was bedtime. Good luck to you if you want to try it! Send me a link if you post your list!

  1. Um, why is "It's Pat" on your ashamed list??

  2. And aquamarine? Hello? Offended.

  3. I've been wanting to make a list of all the movies I've watched/ all the movies I'd like to own.
    Oh, and maybe it will be more helpful to make "chick flicks" one of the categories!

  4. How could you have missed "Without a Paddle"???

  5. ashamed?! tropic thunder is total trash but i've seen it (when its on at a friend's house, you don't really have a say in things). way to go on your list! i like to list my fav films as well (see blog) and i'm always looking for recommendations so i will def reference your list!

    1. Haha and the version of Tropic Thunder I saw was edited even -still junk. Huge letdown because I thought the previews made it look hilarious. And as far as recommendations go, I wouldn't necessarily use this list, but if you have questions on any of these movies, I could give you vivid descriptions and my opinions:)
