2011 Year End Blowout Extravaganza! Posterized: Movies Watched March/April

Reminder from yesterday's post:

-Only films watched from beginning to their end count. So if I turned on HBO and caught say Listen to Me at the 20 minute mark and watched the rest of the film, it is not eligible. Neither would Left Behind: World at War be if I started to watched it and Jesus came down to earth to receive his follows up to the bosom of heaven, thus interrupting the broadcast with 10 minutes remaining. However, if I went to the cinema to see Like Father, Like Son at a repertory screening at the New Beverly, and watch the film from start to finish, then it does count.

-TV movies count, but TV series do not, even special two parters (but for shits and giggles, and since I watched my fair share of television as well, I am including the TV series whose seasons I watched in their entirety at the end of each entry. Remember, some of these I started pre-2011)

-I count each movie I see as a viewing, so if I watched Mamma Mia! ten times, that counts as ten viewings! AND DON’T JUDGE ME!!!!!

-Presentation became a point of contention for some films, so here’s what I decided, if the film was presented in separate intervals like Carlos, which was separated by Netflix into three nearly two hour segments with credits, it counted as three films. However, when I saw the Kill Bill: Whole Bloody Affair cut, it only counted as one film, despite its previous split incarnation

Films in italics are films that I would rate a B+ or higher on the ol’ grading system, or 4 or more stars on the 5 star system

And finally for films whose year of release is written this way (2010/11) the first is the year of the film’s premiere release (or for foreign films, year of release in their country) the second is the American release date, for year end lists, since I am American at least until Alvin and the Chipmunks 4: Chipocalypse Now premieres, I go by the second date.

For year end lists, since I am an American at least until Rick Santorium is our president, I go by the second date.

I was going to start watching the original Star Trek series myself, did you enjoy the episodes?

I am still jealous I have not seen the Whole Bloody Affair cut of Kill Bill, why is it not on bluray yet?

Looking forward to seeing more posters from you soon. October should be a particularly fun month.

Star Trek has some stinker of some episodes, especially in the third season, but it's definitely worth it for the gems. You don't really need to watch them in order, I'd google a list of some of the best episodes "Space Seed (intro to Khan)" "City on the Edge of Forever" "The Trouble with Tribbles" and if you dig them, go digging deeper.

I support your idea very much and here is a good choice for you no matter what mood you are: just remember to pay attention to the fashion trend of New Hermes bags such as Hermes Kelly Birkin or the other style of cambridge satchels or cambridge satchels bags. I promise you will relax yourself.
