What were some of your favorites movies you watched this year?


  1. Do you have Netflix? I watched a lot of the same movies as you. I am a movie junkie. An absolute maniac!

  2. What a wonderful list! I've tried for two years now to keep track of the movies I watch, but each time I end up forgetting to log few in and then I give up completely. I need to be as dedicated to a movie list as I am to book lists.

  3. That's a lot of movies!

    I only kept track of the movies released in 2008 that I saw. That post is going up soon.

  4. Wow, what a list. I've seen around 22 of the ones you've seen. Most were watched this year as well. Only a few were ones I've seen in prior years. I never thought of keeping track of my movies or tv shows watched. I watch so much, especially during the semester when I don't have the energy to read books for fun in my spare time. I doubt I'd be able to keep such careful record. I sometimes have to think real hard to make sure my books read list is accurate (I just do tallies, I don't write down titles). Great job! :)

    "Movies watched: 182"


  6. Netflix definitely helps all of this happen! It's not like I don't have my own movies to watch but there is nothing like being able to see new releases right away!

    Literary Feline- I was so glad I remembered, I think it was a bit hard at first for me too!

    Amee- Yeah, it's sometimes hard to decide what to count and what not to count. I think I counted everything I watched all the way through, minus tv shows that I watched as they aired on tv.
