As some of you may know, I'm a sucker for lists. I can't pack for a holiday without making a list of things I need to pack, things I need to buy and books I can't possible go without. I make a list of everything I'm going to cook for the week, and all the ingredients that go into those things, and then make my shopping list from THAT list. And my shopping list is broken into separate lists for fruit and veg, meat and dairy, cleaning products, and everything else. Lists make me happy.
I'm also a sucker for movies. My collection goes from All About Eve to X-Men Origins: Wolverine. (And I know this because I have a list of all my DVDs...) Speaking of movies, I saw Alice in Wonderland today. In 3D. Did anyone else think that EVERY tree in Underland looked like the Tree of the Dead from Sleepy Hollow?? And was anyone else expecting Professor Snape to be standing there whenever Absalon spoke??? Aaanyway, while the movie was good, the 3D element made my head hurt - mostly because the glasses at Dendy weigh about a metric ton...
But back to my point. On Friday afternoon, I discovered this: http://www.empireonline.com/500
Empire magazine put together a list of what they think are the top 500 movies of all time, which was voted on by critics, professionals, and readers. My first thought when I found it was "Ooooooh, a list of movies????? AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!" My second thought was "Hmm, I wonder how many I've seen??" Frankly, the list is a little surprising - especially the top 50. My biggest surprise was that Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull even made the list. Ack. That movie was TERRIBLE.
How many have you seen?

PS. For the record, I've seen 149...
