I'm pretty sure you've watched more since May than I have all year. Nicely done.

Please don't, I got into film about two years ago, so I try to watch as many as possible to "catch up." I have this weird sense of inferiority when it comes to film, so my excessive film watching is merely a compliment to you all and your greater film knowledge. (Except roujin, he can suck it!)

I'm pretty sure you've watched more since May than I have all year. Nicely done.
I was unemployed, so what else is for a man to do? Movies and alcohol, that was my life for a few months.

That sounds like a good life, minus the alcohol.

Are those supposed to be films only from 2009? Because a few of those aren't from 2009.

He said on his blog they are just films he saw in 2009 which is in keeping with this thread.
