I don't think I want people to know how many bad movies I've seen and how many good movies I haven't seen.

Anyways, you must be a commie if you've never seen The Goonies. But don't worry, you can borrow my version. Of course.. it doesn't have the octopus scene in it, but then.. I think it's a myth that that version exists.

You know, The Goonies was probably the one movie in the list that I was embarrassed not to have seen. It's one of those movies that I always forget to watch.

And you've guessed my deep secret....I was a teenage commie in Reagan's America...

Even I saw The Goonies and I lived in India then. Anyway I published my list on my blog. I'm most embarassed that I haven't seen His Girl Friday and M. And I haven't seen Grease either.

I didn't see His Girl Friday until a few weeks ago. It's a fun film. Sadly enough, the main reason I saw "Grease" is that some guy at my parents' church railed against the film so much. I think he called it one of the most evil films ever made (or something like that).

Although it's not on the list, it's one of the three that I would add at the bottom.


Oh yes, I saw it. Some friends and I rented it to see how awful it was.. and truly, it was as awful as they say it is.

Now, my trusted video clerk told me that Gigli was not nearly as bas as everyone said. I still haven't seen it, but I almost rented it on his recommendation....
