2012 in Cinemas

I am one of those... I keep my ticket stubs.

Here goes my run down of my favourite movies I have seen this year in the cinema.

The Artist
J. Edgar
Young Adult
The Woman in Black
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
The Hunger Games (twice)
Cabin in the Woods
The Avengers
A Fantastic Fear of Everything
Red Lights
The Amazing Spider-Man
The Dark Knight Rises (twice)
Expendables 2
Killing Them Softly
The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Ruby Sparks
The Hobbit (twice)

and I went to an all day Lord of the Rings-a-thon

A Top 10 out of them? Hmmmm...

Again in the order in which I viewed them, hey I am indecisive so its as decent a way as any to order a Top 10

The Artist
Young Adult
The Amazing Spider-Man
The Dark Knight Rises
Ruby Sparks/The Perks of Being a Wallflower (see... indecisive)
The Hobbit

and technically The Artist and Young Adult are 2011 movies but I saw them in the cinema this year, so you can give me a double with Ruby Sparks/The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

There's mine... yours?

Update on the 2013 Plan

The IMDB Top 250 List changes... all... the... time. Plan? Take a snap shot of it at the start of the year, and go from there, and if I'm actually successful by the end of 2013, take another snap shot of the list and try tick off some of the changes, cause there has got to be some mint movies, yes if you licked them they would indeed taste minty, coming out next year that will land a place in the Top 250.

To the top 250 List

I very much doubt I will do it in either ascending/descending order, maybe try to plan some of the movies for when they will be appropriate for the time of year, don't want to get to the middle of July and watch 'It's A Wonderful Life'.

See ya there New Years Day, and if I don't post before Christmas... Have a splendid one.

And remember only a ginger can call another ginger "ginger", just like only a ninja can sneak up on another ninja.

Plan for 2013

Ok so I got lazy... forgive me?

I had drafts of posts that I forgot to finish and post...

"I had a delightful day off work yesterday and boy do I love Tuesdays off. Why? Our local cinema's cheap ass day is Tuesday, so we went to see 3 movies.

First up was Sinister, followed by the movie we were meant to see last week but it was sold out 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' and finally we caught 'The Campaign'"


"I planned on writing almost daily as I would guide you through my horrorfest of october... and what a failure. Damn life getting in the way, and as of the last month, I'm working 6 days a week. Time to barely catch up on my tv shows and sleep... in that order. Yes tv is important. The Walking Dead and Dexter being up there ahead of sleep."

So you see, gentle reader, though we are into Black(eyed) Friday here in the UK, so by tonight you may be tanked up and looking for a fight with it being the last Friday before Chrimbo, and so not so gentle.

Also, still working 6 days a week. I was off this past Tuesday, saw The Hobbit for a second time, and I am not off work again until Christmas Day. I should be sleeping now, since I am working 10am-10pm tomorrow... today... Friday. Depends which side of the day you're looking at it from...

See not too shabby, eh?

So tonight, or last night since its gone 2am, I was talking to a dear fine sir, I'll call him Conrad, for that is not his name but I call him it anyways.... and we were talking generally about movies, the IMDB Top 250 and he  got confused when I said I bought some Godzilla movies recently. Why the confusion? He thinks there is only one, and I figured out he meant that atrocity that was the Roland Emmerich pile of non-Godilla crap. No, that thing will never be my Godzilla. Sorry to anyone who likes that movie... do those people exist?

Where were we? The IMDB Top 250... yes, that is clearly where we were.

I thought as a fun movie-a-thon, going through the ever changing IMDB Top 250 next year would be a delightful challenge, delightful as in all the movies should be good right? Right? Let's see... also it will be interesting for me to see how many I've seen already. Plus fun to tick off some of those "you should see" movies.

Care to join me?
