movies I've seen


  1. I've seen one of them! I bet you can guess which it is, too.

  2. Well you've already read about me and Black Swan. I've also seen True Grit and Toy Story 3. I wanted to see Inception, but I ended up letting David pick the movie. It is not on the list. As a matter of fact I don't even remember what it was.

  3. I'm hoping to see Black Swan this weekend! It's on the top of my list.

  4. I have seen ZERO and I've only heard of a few of them. I am such a loser. But I have Social Network coming to me on Netflix.

  5. I'm a total loser and haven't seen any of them. Toy Story 3 was in our home but we sent it back to Netflix because Z refused to watch it. I would like to see Social Network, HOw to Train your Dragon, The Kids Are all Right and The Fighter (my sister in-law Kiki tried out for a part in that and even got a call back ;)). Maybe I'll even get Toy Story 3 back and watch it alone :)

  6. I haven't seen a single one of them. Even Toy Story 3.

    I have no life.

  7. Ive seen the kids ones...sad. But Ive got a few of them on my Netflix queue to watch soon

  8. Hands down, Inception rocked - but I really like that mend-bending cool stuff.

    The Fighter was good- kinda slow at parts but a feel god movie.

    And I heard True Grit was fantastic.

    I REALLY want to see The King's Speech - REALLY bad!!!! Maybe I need to schedule a babysitter for the weekend......


  9. Wowzers. I've got some movie watching to catch up on! STAT.

  10. I've got my work cut out for me - I've only seen Inception (which was good, but I am thinking there are probably better movies nominated.)

  11. I have really got to get out of the house more. I haven't seen a single one of these.
    I don't have Netflix (we don't own a Wii, either), and I'm too cheap to buy BluRay's.
    We used to go to the movies every week, then every-other week. I don't know what happened - oh, yeah, six dogs happened. HaHa


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
