Summer goal.

Coming back from Disney World (more specifically Hollywood Studios – I still call it MGM) , I decided to set a goal: I need to watch more movies. At the very least, the movies most people have seen.

I guess I could use the classic excuse of  “since having kids, I don’t get to go to the movies anymore”.

But that’s not entirely true. I really didn’t go before having kids anyway.

A list of movies I have not seen (just off the top of my head):

  • The Princess Bride
  • Goonies
  • Breakfast Club
  • 16 Candles
  • Raiders of the Lost Ark
  • Grease
  • Alien
  • Terminator
  • Star Wars
  • The Godfather
  • Avatar
  • Lord of the Rings
  • Harry Potter
  • Toy Story
  • Jaws
  • The Passion

There have been a handful of movies I’ve started to watch but lost interest or just got distracted:

  • Top Gun (This is Scott’s favorite movie. I hope he’s not reading this b/c he will tie me down to the couch and make me watch it.)
  • The Pirates of the Caribbean II, and III.
  • Little Miss Sunshine
  • Fight Club
  • Tangled
  • The Princess and the Frog

I’m not against watching any of these movies. I just never got around to it, I guess? I do rent movies occasionally. My que is always filled with romantic comedies. Or I’ll get on an old black and white movie kick – love ’40s and ’50s movies. (It’s where I got Emma and Kate’s middle names from. Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn) I’m a total girl when it comes to movie selections.

So I’m on a mission to rent movies that I probably should have seen by now. I’m going to (try to) go to the movies with Scott and be more agreeable with “his” movie choice.

My summer of late night entertainment will be starting tomorrow night.

First up: Raiders of the Lost Ark and sequels…there are sequels, right?
