Movie Madness Weekend!

My hubby and I decided that starting this weekend, we should start watching all of our movies (300+) in alphabetical order. I'm all over this! So, since J works flex time, he is usually either off work or working from home on Fridays. This is especially nice in the summer because I'm not working at all so we get our 3 day weekends together.

Friday movies:
3:10 to Yuma
12 Monkeys
28 Days Later
28 Weeks Later
40 Year Old Virgin

As you can see with our first day, we have quite the variety of movies. My favorite from Friday would have to be 28 Days Later. I LOVE scary movies and when I saw this movie the first time, it scared the crap out of me! Now, when we get into the movies starting with D, there will be a movie that scared me way more, but we're not there yet ;).

Saturday Movies:
300 (I had not seen this yet, and I really enjoyed watching it)
127 Hours (that ending gets me EVERY time)
2001: A Space Odyssey
2010: The Year We Made Contact
Aladdin (we made it to the A's! Oh and J really enjoyed me reciting all the lines from this movie while we were watching it)

Ok, so when I agreed to watch our movies over, I totally forgot about 2001 and 2010, these two movies bore me to tears...and then J pointed out ever so nicely that he has to sit through my movies...and there are quite a few of them. I did have a real nice nap today while we were watching 2001 and 2010. :) While writing this, I learned that J took a nap!

Sunday Movies:
Alpha Dog
American Gangster (I didn't follow this movie very well today, I felt distracted)
American History X (This is one of my favorite movies of all time)
Anastasia (My movies have started to make their appearance!)

Shockingly (okay, not really) J had never seen Anastasia. His thoughts during the movie was that they really tried to make this a Disney movie. It doesn't really matter to me, though, because I love this movie and it was a fun watch.

I don't know when we'll continue this endeavor, but it was a pretty awesome weekend.

We also recently bought Dexter Season 6 and The Wire Complete series, so we're watching a few episodes of each every night. This plus our Netflix shows (The West Wing, Arrested Development, Bob's Burgers, Malcom in the Middle, and King of the Hill...just to name a few), we have never been happier with our decision to cancel cable. As baffled as our cable company was when I called to cancel, I just think our decision was the best one. We do have an antenna so we get the free channels. I'm so glad we have CBS so we'll attempt to watch Under the Dome when it comes on next Monday. I say attempt because we usually go to bed by 9pm, sometimes even 8:30pm!

Wow, I think this was my most productive blog yet! :)
