Phew, that was actually pretty easy to do. It's also useful for fleshing out the NetFlix queue.

As for tagging folks, I tag anyone who's actually reading and actually wants to do this!

Hey how can you say K-Pax is garbage without having seen it?
While the plot of the movie is not the best, it's worth watching because of a great Kevin Spacey.

fridge said...

I refuse to believe that you haven't seen Big Trouble in Little China.

Nat Blair said...

@jh - Ok, call me out like that. Maybe Spacey's performance is great enough to carry the movie. Perhaps I'll stick it on the Netflix queue.

But as I thought about it more and more, the garbage metaphor rang truer and truer. Sometimes when you throw away garbage, you accidentally throw something valuable away. K-Pax looks to me, and smells to me, like garbage, but maybe I've made a mistake.

This continues with, "one man's trash is another man's treasure."

:)

@fridge - I know, it was with a pang of guilt and regret that I had to leave that one blank. A blight on my movie cred.

Dr. J said...

Wow, good going. I see you stopped at Star Wars episode I as well!!!

fridge said...

No. Not as a blight on your resume. I mean given the amount of time we spent watching movies and the number of times I watched that one back in the day, I literally can't believe that wasn't one of them. I intend to grill you about this next time I see you.

Nat:
Yes, I believe now you almost have to put it on the queue, otherwise you'll always ask yourself whether you missed something good ;)
