    for me, it was:
    36 bolded
    11 italicized

    …slightly different list and it would be so much more.

    I’m pretty sure you’ve seen Glory–I think anyone in the NYC public school system has been forced to see it… But my list is much, much shorter–who made up this list?

    I don’t even know what Glory is. I think the list is from Time mag or the New Yorker, but I can check.

    Yea, you didnt expect me to be a movie fiend, did you? More of a critic. Probably why I didnt think Slumdog deserved all those oscars.

    Seriously, how did you watch all of these movies?

    I used to have a thing where I watched one every other night. For like two or three years.
    I don’t do that anymore. I haven’t watched a movie since “Doubt” with Meryl Streep. Which by the way is an AWESOME movie. It HAS to be a classic.

    I’m off the movie watching wagon now. I just read the lengthy reviews and if something really really jumps out at me then I watch it.

    I read lengthy reviews and am able to participate in most conversations, but never end up watching the movie. That stems from other issues I have, but we’ll save that for another post.
