I've seen 76 out of 239 films (aka I have a life)

I saw this over at Darla's and seeing as today has been such a movie day it seemed like a good idea, until I realised how few I have actually seen! Never mind. It's probably a good thing they don't ask about books that have been read because my I have a life statement may come back to bite me!

I am definitely going to be giving this to a couple of my work colleagues who I can guarantee don't have a life, but I might need to leave it for a day or two because I am already in the bad books with the biggest movie buff I work with (we'll call him Poker King) . You see, every year PK asks us all to say (or guess) who is going to win the Oscars and he prides himself on getting the most right, and because we all can be just a little competitive, there will be some good natured ribbing about how bad the rest of us are.

This year, PK came third behind a girl from outside our department, and well, me. I think the fact that I beat him hurts a little bit, because I don't get to watch grown up films. Of all the major categories, the only nominations I had seen were Bolt, Kung Fu Panda and Wall-E. Yep! Only kids films.

Anyway, onto the meme!

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 post. Then, put x's next to the films you've seen, add them up, and change the header adding your number. Have fun.

  3. I just did this and I've seen 99! So I guess I just barely don't have a life!

  4. grrr.. it seems like I have no life :D

  5. I haven't counted yet but I think I can't go wrong by saying that I have no life. :D

  6. I've seen 58, so I guess I have a life. Of course, if it had been about books one reads, I might be in trouble.

    I finally worked out the other day that I'm a very literal, read/write person, so I'm rather read a book than watch a movie. I'm not visual at all - I frequently have to check with my husband who an actor is or even if the person I'm looking at on screen now is the same one as earlier in the film. I just don't register visual things well. If you're ever going to commit a crime, make sure I'm the witness. I'll never be able to describe you to the police.

  7. Well I guess I have a life as I've only seen 36 of these...but I've spent much more of my life in front of a movie screen than that would indicate - just seeing different films I guess - now if it had been a list of disaster films or Australian films I'd have been in trouble :)

  8. Well many of these I saw when the first came out and I others I've seen recently, some I even have reviews of or I plan to re-watch and do reviews for but I've seen 122.

  9. I got to 144 and it's a fraction of the total films I have seen. Anyway in the interests of balance I did a rough calculation of the books in my library and it's over 3000, each of which I have read from cover to cover.

    So which is worse?

  10. I saw 67, so supposidly I have a life too. But none of my favorite films listed were on my top ten list.

    These were all block buster American films. There were no international films. No Austrlian films, which I love BTW. Austrailians sure know comedy!

  11. LOL I am happy to say I do have a life. I have only seen 59 of those movies.

  12. Guess I have no life!! I've seen 131, but many of my favs are not on this list!
