In a recent post, Dann started another bandwagon. The following list are absolutely essential to watch in order to be an American (i.e. the best movies of all time): Add one at the bottom — no tagging, this one is purely voluntary! They are in no particular order.

  1. I was gonna say you’ve seen a lot of movies…. then I realized that although I haven’t seen all the ones you have, I have seen some of the ones you haven’t… so we’re pretty even.  I’m crazy sore too from all the running, but I think I’m going for it again in half an hour… it’s supposed to drop like 20 degrees overnight…. goodbye warm weather…. 😦  It’s been in the 60’s up here which is awesome for this time of year… back down into the 40’s tomorrow.
