Movies 2006

Pooteewheet and I watched a lot of movies this year. Not particularly more than in other years as our Netflix list shows about one every three days, but it always seems excessive, particularly given that we also go to a few movies at the theater (lots of kids movies, Eryn is keen on the big screen) watch the odd thing on IFC or at a friend's house, are given a DVD from a friend, or via a gift certificate to Blockbuster from my boss. So here's this year's Netflix list. I'm going to assume we won't get anything back to them before the 3rd, given the holidays and all. We finished off the year with a few ones, and there really aren't that many fives if you eliminate classics and kid's movies. Fours galore...just not fives. Murderball, Unforgivable Blackness, Walk the Line, and The Aristrocrats were all great. And I'd be willing to recommend most of the fours. Some, like Transamerica, Hard Candy and Tristram Shandy were very memorable.

Hey...I just noticed that Pulse is in there twice, once with a three and once with a one. I'd like to point out that the one with a three, that's the Japanese version. The one with a one - that's the U.S. version with the chick from Veronica Mars. Sucked chimple.
