Now at 59 with no repeats.

Think we are seeing Life of Pi tomorrow so that should end the year on a nice round number.

Do in-flight movies count? This is a count for movies on the big screen, right? My list doesn't include a few in-flight, VOD & other rented movies... Let me know if I should update my list.

Not that I'm particularly bothered by what someone counts or doesn't count, this is from Sugar's original post:

1. Only feature-length films seen in a theater can be counted (exception: a screening of multiple short films can be counted as one film)

Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines a theater as: "1c : a building or area for showing motion pictures".

Since during that time on the flight the area was used (at least by some) to view the feature length film, I think you have met the criteria set forth above as having seen the films in a theater.

I say go ahead and count them (besides, I've only seen 11 films so it's not like it matters to me :mishchief: )

Of course, by that definition, the "areas" in my den, bedroom and at my computer desks would also count as "theaters". :roll:

It's like playing Scrabble. First you have to agree on a dictionary to use, as they all differ to one extent or another (stupid English language).
Dictionary.com: 1 - a building, part of a building, or outdoor area for housing dramatic presentations, stage entertainments, or motion-picture shows.
Oxford Online: 1c - (chiefly North American & West Indian) a cinema
etc, ad nauseam......

Good god, I've been gone too long. I'll get my spreadsheet updated ASAP. Or did anyone do this in my stead?
You see, Hopsi, you don't know very much about girls. The best ones aren't as good as you probably think they are and the bad ones aren't as bad. Not nearly as bad.
