Back in the 90s I was a regular plasma donor. I saw several of these movies while hooked up to a centrifuge. But I'm glad I saw "She's All That" and "Ten Things," because it made "Not Another Teen Movie" a lot funnier.

I tried to watch the first "Kill Bill" once, but it was boring. It had about as much of a plot as a porn movie, but with violence as the raison d'etre instead of sex. So who cares? I gave up on it after about an hour.

I've never seen "King Kong" because giant monster animals movies just don't do anything for me. I've always thought every Godzilla movie I ever tried to watch was stupid, too.


  1. Holy cow. 125+ for me. Waterworld. Gah. There are a couple hours I'd rather trade for a root canal.

  2. Only eight for me. And I used to get into movies for free....
