Contact and The Iron Giant are two of my favorite films.
2010 is my husband's favorite film of all time.

I've watched 18 out of 48 movies (37.5%). That's actually a lot better than I expected when I first glanced at the list.

I've read 0 out of the 48 novels (0%). I thought that George Orwell's 1984 was at least a required reading in high school, but when I went to read a synopsis of the novel, I honestly don't recall ever reading it.

  1. Ok The Iron Giant is one of my all time favorites. I just can't watch it enough! Great list!

  2. *sigh* I've only watched 10, and I haven't read any of them in book form.

  3. Haven't looked at the whole list yet, but we shall see tomorrow when I post mine what all I can mark on it!

  4. Sweet! A meme to make it look like I'm coming up with fresh content for my blog. Thanks, Christine!

    *runs off to do it*

  5. LOL You're welcome, Ann!
    I was on my way to leave a message for you on your blog. It looks like you've been busy writing away over there, and I almost didn't want to bug you. But then again, I figured Andres might be game. ;)

    I can't believe its been over three weeks since our dinner already!?!? Where does the time go?

    p.s. I'm going into Manhattan to see Kenyon on Friday. Wish me luck figuring out the correct train back to NJ! ;p
