31 Movies

I stole this from Avitable. Yeah, I did. Meme + Movies = Duh! He came by it through legitimate meme etiquette. Tag, you’re it. Of course, it’s supposed to be a 31-day writing project, but as Adam states so eloquently, “I’m not writing 31 fucking posts about movie titles.

I concur.

There you go. I tried not to over think my answers... or duplicate. First instinct and all that jazz. Be advised, there is no permanency in this list.

  1. I'm not with on you the LOTR movies - I deplore them - but other than that, I agree with a lot of your choices.

  2. @Avitable - I did know that about you. ;) "Deplore" is such a good word... deplore, deplore, deplore.

  3. Deplore is a great word. Sadly, it was used poorly in regards to LoTR...*sigh*

    Great list, Beth. I need to steal this list and do it myself. I won't, but I need to.
