Hot Weather = Movie Night

Given that it's hotter than a witches tit outside (who knew witches had such a reputation?) everyone seems to be escaping to the movie theatre for solace and buttery fingers.
Therefore this list is somewhat apropos. Word on Internet Street is that if you've seen more than 60 out of AFI's Top 100 American Movies list you need to get a life.
At 31/100 I think I need to take more sick days.

It's memes like this that make me wish Derek was still writing his blog...maybe one day. *sigh...although I already know that he'd be at least 98/100.
