Yeah, these past couple of years, I haven't been to the movie theatres much.

How did you do?

11 really cool people who give a rat's patootie:


Looks to me like you need to take some time out, maybe go to the movies...


I did much worse than that. Then again, I hate going to the movies.


It's really interesting to see all the nominated movies. So many I've totally forgotten about! Then again, I am not a hard-core movie fanatic.
Some years I definitely do better than others, but I've managed to see at least once almost every year since the mid 80s. Yeah, I am getting old. :(
I'd definitely tell you to see Slumdog, if you have to choose just one from this year.


Heck-I can't remember if I've seen half of them or not. It's okay, though. Most of them are on the cheapo rack at the video store so I can watch them again.


The only ones I've seen since 2000 have been Chocolat and Sideways. I'm not much of a movie goer or renter either! Fun meme!

Middle Aged Woman

I love how you put my name in PINK!


You've NEVER seen Goodfellas?!

That's like one of my favorite movies ever!


There are so many movies out there I want to see. I'm so behind in the movie world...although I have seen most of the kids movies, funny that.


I count that I've seen 93 out of 145, heavily weighted towards the past 10 years or so.

Don't feel too bad, though, because I saw at least 2/3 of those movies on video or cable, and most for free or near to it.

Small children have this way of making going out to the movies nearly impossible. Also a lack of money to pay babysitters and theater owners.

Hey :) I'm taking this for my blog, too... Hope you don't mind! :)

Have a great week!
