Livejournal statistics (Apparently I'm not exactly an "average" user.)

I saw someone else post a list of top 100/bottom 100 films and which they'd seen and hadn't and thought I'd give it a try. I used bold for movies I've seen and italics for movies I think I might have seen but I'm not sure. This would be a little bit easier if they hadn't used foreign titles in the list for movies like The Good, The Bad And The Ugly. I imagine the contents of these lists aren't particularly static so they might not even match if you checked them right now.

2003/12/18 12pm: corrected Jaws

Wow. I don't think I've been outside of a bell curve like the one for "age distribution". I think I'd better go to bed and make this an early evening.

Oops, too late.

41 (you've never seen Jaws?) : 8 (but you've seen Jaws 3-D?) (a good-to-bad factgor of 5.1)
To your 53 : 19, gtb factor of 2.8. I would argue that I have better taste, but I realize that one does not set out to watch McHale's Navy expecting a masterpiece of cinematography. So why did you watch McHale's Navy?

Good catch, I just missed marking Jaws.

I started out with the bold/italics idea then realized I needed other categories like "In Netflix queue so I plan to see it sometime soon" or "Seen on MST3K" or "I've seen it and I think it should be on the other list" but I decided that'd get too complicated pretty quickly.

I saw McHale's Navy for one reason: Bruce Campbell. I saw Texas Chainsaw Massacre: TNG (I think that was the title when I saw it) because it was a Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie in the theater and it had Matthew McConaughey and Renée Zellweger. I actually liked Bats and Highlander 2.
