I've seen 189 of these movies!
 
 
Barbara: Awesome HIMYMhtbthomas on March 28th, 2007 09:55 am (UTC)
That's an amazing number! I have seen many, but not even close to this many. There were only 1-2 I had seen you hadn't. You really like movies, eh?
Loiskalalanekent on March 28th, 2007 04:56 pm (UTC)
Have I ever mentioned that I worked for Blockbuster and Hollywood Video at one time? ;) Don't ask how many I own!
sean_montgomery: Brandon - huh?sean_montgomery on March 28th, 2007 10:16 am (UTC)
First - LOVE the profile icon of Lois!

Second - *is jealous* I WISH I had seen most of these movies... then again, you had a little bit of an advantage in your past, didn't you? ; )
Loiskalalanekent on March 28th, 2007 04:58 pm (UTC)
Oh, yeah. The jobs and then again, I had classes in script writing and theater, so... :D
sean_montgomery: Working Wet!Clarksean_montgomery on March 28th, 2007 07:42 pm (UTC)
You still around? Gimme a ring if you are...
Lois: Lois Clark See Mekalalanekent on March 28th, 2007 05:06 pm (UTC)
And isn't she a beauty? I had to have this the moment I saw it. Go check out sasusc's page for a bunch of awesomesauce STM icons. I only hope she'll do some SII ones as well...
AlphieLJ: Impressedalphielj on March 28th, 2007 02:10 pm (UTC)
Good lord! I am a movie buff and I haven't seen nearly as many films as you have on this list. But then, I tend to stay away from R rated films and so many of these are R rated. I think I'm going to have to do a talley for myself now just to see.
Loiskalalanekent on March 28th, 2007 05:01 pm (UTC)
Well, I had the advantage of taking classes and having jobs that revolved around movies. I'd love to have one again, but the pay... :(

And just wait until I do Ella's meme about how many you have!
jenna_knightjenna_knight on March 28th, 2007 03:57 pm (UTC)
OK, I thought I was the only one born in the last 50 years who'd seen Brief Encounter! You seen about 25 more than me but there was 10-12 than I'd seen that you hadn't.

Um, with all the classics on that list and you haven't seen the original Planet of the Apes!!!! You must go out a rent that immediately.
Loiskalalanekent on March 28th, 2007 05:03 pm (UTC)
*wince* I never really got into those films. My friend April had them all and watched them the way that I watch Superman. I only watched the Westerns as class assignments, too. This really makes me want to do that meme...
jenna_knightjenna_knight on March 28th, 2007 05:10 pm (UTC)
The sequels are terrible but the original Planet of the Apes is amazing. It works on so many levels (I had to write a paper on it). And that ending! I don't know, I think its possibly one of the greatest sci-fi movies ever.

Please do the meme! I had such a good time filling it out on my journal. Now I have a bunch of movies that I know I need to watch.
Loiskalalanekent on March 28th, 2007 05:16 pm (UTC)
I'll take a chance on the first one, then. I really like the Burton version except for the obvious cop-outs here and there. :D
jenna_knightjenna_knight on March 28th, 2007 05:22 pm (UTC)
The Burton one is terrible in comparison. So I'm guessing you don't know the twist to the original? I wish I could be there when you see the ending. The Burton twist was a lame attempt to copy the first.

OK, I'm sorry for not being the sharpest knife in the drawer. Is this Anissa? I know that you sometimes post from KalalaneKent's journal and I assumed so since you said you hadn't filled out the meme yet. Otherwise I'm confused.
Loiskalalanekent on March 28th, 2007 05:39 pm (UTC)
No, no. This is Lois. Rest assured. I've made my journal Anissa-proof except of emergency posts. ;)
dj_intheuk: Clois Moviesdj_intheuk on March 28th, 2007 07:12 pm (UTC)
Impressive!
Loiskalalanekent on March 29th, 2007 04:47 pm (UTC)
*LOL* Wait until I have a chance to tally all the films I own!
