I wish I had that much free time, too. Now anyway.

I probably saw over 200 films this year, a lot of which are on your list as well. I've never watched this many movies in my life. I caught up on a lot of classics I'd never seen, and saw a lot of horrible ones that made me think I could absolutely do better. Wack movies are great motivators.

Whack movies ARE indeed a great motivator.

I watched three full seasons of Gilmore Girls this year and I don't really remember which movies. GG is my favorite.

I became a fan of the GG after this last year, catching reruns on ABC family, plus its interesting to watch Bledel, a latina, in the role of Rory.
