The Get A Life Movie Meme

I have a bad feeling about this one. It started on Facebook, but I picked it up from Greg Laden’s blog via John Wilkin’s blog.

It’s a list of 219 movies. If you’ve seen more than 85 of them you have no life, according to… well, who exactly? I would like to make a point of mentioning now, before I go through the list, that I DO have a life. I just really like movies. Feel free to pick up the meme if you want.

  1. 123 for me, so not far behind you. Nice to see such a wide range of movies in there, especially Cube, Battle Royale, Zatoichi and the like. I think I have a life, but currently the evidence is weighing up against it!

  2. I agree, it is a pretty good cross section of movies. I think it’s something of a badge of honour to score over 100 on that list. 123 is very respectable.

  3. I seen 109 from this list and proud to name most of them but i do wish i hadn’t seen Neverending Story. Well there are a few more there that i wished i hadn’t seen. 🙂

  4. Karl, I have to agree with you there. I would gladly take Neverending Story off my list if only there was some way to wipe it from my mind.
