  1. Sooo agreed about Time Traveler’s Wife. Damn thing makes me bawl. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is pretty incredible.

    When I read Van Helsing my mind filled in Valhalla Rising instead. Have you seen that? The music alone annoys the everloving shit out of me.

    1. @B.E. Earl, what’s overloaded your brain? I’ve seen several documentaries, but I just can’t think of one that really stood out. I need to see a few of the newer ones – especially the ones you were talking about the other day.

  2. I have to go with Team America for favorite musical only because every SINGLE day of my life I have one of those stupid songs in my head! Also because Matt and Trey are the coolest.
    Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade is my 5 year old’s favorite movie!

  3. I bet most people could do this thing a dozen times and come up with a different movie for almost all of them every time. It’s so hard to just come up with one for each.

    Anyway, I’m going to steal this one.

  4. Loved Casino Royale!
    Did you like the Mechanic? I’m a fan of assassin (and Jason Statham) movies, but the reviews haven’t been that good.
    I don’t know if I can remember enough movies to fill this out, but I might try.

  5. OK, we have some overlap here. I cannot agree with you, however, on The Time Traveler’s Wife. I *PPH* both actors, but I hated the book too. NOTHING HAPPENS. ZZZZZZ…

    Also, Daredevil? Really? I only barely tolerated it because Colin was in it (and so much fun to watch). But even I was rolling my eyes!

  6. I see you had nothing for #13 – documentary.
    If you’ve never seen March of the Penguins, you’ve really missed a good one. It is one of my all time favorites and I watch it every winter.

    Hugs from freezing MN

  7. As always, I am dumbfounded by your hatred of “The Incredibles.” Easily right up there with “The Dark Knight” as one of my favorite super-hero movies ever. Wipes the floor with the shitty “Fantastic Four” and “X-Men” films.

  8. Van Helsing was such a letdown. I’ve still seen it several times, because I’m a sucker for Hugh Jackman, but I wanted it to be so much more.

    I’m going to steal this for my blog. Because I can easily do it while (not) supervising my children, and I don’t post over there enough, but I’m slack enough to appropriate this.
