Movie Trivia

“I have work to do and I still have to do a blog post. I’ve got nothin’.”
“You’ve got years’ worth of funny stories.”
“What funny stories?”
“And you’ve got all those lists that you do.”
“‘Here’s a list of the 14,000 movies that I’ve seen. And… begin.'”
“Well, no, you’d wanna do the ‘bestest’ or the ‘worstest’ or something like that.”

Actual number of movies that I’ve listed as seeing = only 2088
Movie #2088 = Grizzly Man [very disturbing]
The fewest number of movies I have seen that all begin with the same letter of the alphabet = 6, tied between the letters X and Z
The largest number of movies I have seen that begin with the same letter is = 241, the letter S
Number of documentaries on the list = 131
Number of animated films on the list = 43
Number of movies on the list that are really more like filmed live performances = 27
Number of ‘lesbian’ movies that are on the list = 35, including a porno
How many of those 35 are in the running for Worst Movie Ever Made = 6, none of which are the porno or The Children’s Hour
Current favorite movie = The Station Agent (2003)
A movie that will always be in the top ten of current favorite movies = Rear Window (1954)
Favorite movie at the time of the little diaries = The Empire Strikes Back [GWTW as fave was actually a little later]
A movie that quickly comes to mind as a lousy adaptation of a book I read before the movie came out = Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, even though the Lady Chablis was played by the Lady Chablis
The last movie that I watched = The Silence of the Laaaaaambs
The last movie that I watched until I fell asleep = Traffic


  1. I think my lifetime movie count is probably less than 500. My movie count since living with Janie is probably 7.

  2. When you grow up in a movie household, your only way to rebel is to not like movies. When your partner likes to watch movies like Serendipity, you just thank god John Cusak is in it.

  3. Serendipity is a really cute movie!

  4. I stopped keeping a list of movies watched. Now I’m jealous of your list.

  5. It’s easy to make a list, or re-make a list. And oh so much fun! Mine started as a list of movies that Lolly and I had seen together in the theaters. (Awww. So sweet.) Then I added on all the movies that we watched on video. And then we were together for so long I decided I’ll just put all the rest of the movies that I’ve seen on there as well. However, the list does not include ‘Serendipity,’ so ya got me there.

  7. Or you can keep it. No, really. It’s yours.

  8. I just downloaded actual software (free, of course) so I could create a database of movies I own (count = 261). Gleefully wasted most of one day inputting titles (from memory only got 75%). As cool as it is (interfaces directly with IMDb to download info), it doesn’t have a way to categorize movies that I’ve seen but do not own.

    Amy would love you, she adored Station Agent. Tery has a wee (hehe) crush on the actor who plays Finn.
