Stupid Facebook Chain Letter – I’ve seen a bunch of movies, but I swear I have a life

January 13, 2009

Every once in a while I actually do one of the stupid chain letter things – this one seemed right up my alley – so let’s look at the results.  Further discussion at the end.

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 facebook account, paste this as a note. 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.

You see I already knew I had no life, so now you can see my movie choices – I think a bit of it is unfair since I’ve seen the original and remakes of a few movies on that list.  In that scenario should I count them twice.   I guess 219 out of 239 isn’t too bad, it’s also only the tip of the ice berg of what I’ve seen.   Heck tonight in the hotel room I’m in three movies have played so far while I’ve been catching up on blog articles.

  1. What the hell? They don't even LIST Donnie Darko?!?!?!?!?!?!

    Don't ever waste your time on Wolf Creek. It sucked! Hostel just needs to vanish. It's been at least 2 years and I'm still offended by the thought of that waste of film. Grr.

    Fight Club rocks. Pulp Fiction Triple Rocks. “Prank call, prank call!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

    I could see if I never did anything else BUT watch movies, how it might mean I had no life, but hey…..you choose cheap entertainment when you live on a budget. With the library, you can even get FREE entertainment….and no annoying BallBuster ads! :)

    My husband loved Orgazmo. “I am Sancho…”

    :D

  2. i not only think the list shud include donnie darko
    but it shud also include s. darko

    just cuz its not hardcore without them
