Movie Viewing as a Sign of Loserdom?

Okay, so apparently someone somewhere invented this "checklist" to measure one's state of loser-ness by counting the number of movies they have seen. Here are my results:

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 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.

I'm thinking, aren't I the actual loser with a low score of 72? Most people have lives that include going out and seeing movies, or renting them on DVD from their local "no late fees" movie rental place. I, on the other hand, manage to only see something like 10 movies a year, most of them NOT in the theatres, and all of them NOT during opening week. Who created this stupid checklist anyway? Why is 85 the arbitrary value assigned to loserdom? I totally do not get it.

I think you're pretty rad - otherwise I wouldn't have married you! I don't marry riff-raff...=)

c'mon justice...your wife hasn't even seen Miracle on 34th Street?!?! Lame...lol j/k...but seriously, you've never seen it or Monsters, Inc.?? Or Sideways?? You must rent them.

I'll do this one on mine, too, so you can see how even more lame *I* am!

janeylynne said...

P.S.--OR SIXTEEN CANDLES?!?! What is wrong with you?!?!? ;p

Steven R said...

You haven't seen Labrynth! :(

Mrs. Loquacious said...

See? Apparently I AM the loser! :P No, folks, I really haven't seen Miracle on 34th St. (actually, I've seen little bits and pieces as I flip the channels past it), Monsters, Inc., Sideways, Sixteen Candles (is that a Molly Ringwald movie?!), or Labyrinth (isn't that a Jennifer Connelly movie?). I've heard of them, just never had the $, time, or desire to watch them.

I told you this checklist was kind of dumb.
