So yes, I realized my "Recent Movies Watched" list was getting a little out of hand, so I decided to put an archive listing of the summer's films and respective ratings in a blogpost and refresh the list. Even I was surprised at the number of movies I've seen since I came home 5 1/2 months ago, but you know, if you're gone for two years, you have a little leeway to catch up. (Actual count is approximately 106, FYI, not counting the full seasons of TV shows also watched.)
Random statistics:So anyway, nothing new listed below, just a condensed version of the list that's been listed on the right since the end of March. This ought to clear up that sidebar quite nicely. Movies go in order from most recent to least recent seen, starting 24 March 2008, ending 25 August 2008.
There are several which came close to making this list (such as Flushed Away, The Prestige, Ironman, to name a few), so they will receive Honorable Mention.
- Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
- Shaolin Soccer
- The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
The Golden Compass and The Da Vinci Code earn Dishonorable Mention for the bottom list.
- Spider-Man 3
- Return with Honor
- The Singles 2nd Ward
- Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
- Happy Feet
Estimated hours spent watching movies: Too many to feel right about posting.
