  1. Oh wow, looks like you’ve got quite the selection. I’ll have to see if I can find some time to read all these posts. Unfortunately, I’m not sure if I’ll be able to contribute. Right now things are a bit more hectic for me than I anticipated. It’s hard to think about blogging sometimes. Next week I’ll be done this horrible and excruciatingly boring class (I’m only taking it because it’s a requirement for my program, and doing it in the summer is the least stressful option) and I’ll be able to spend more time blogging but right now that’s proving difficult. All I’m saying is I can’t make any promises.

    1. That’s not a problem, it’s only movies after all, and life gets crazy sometimes. If you make it just let us know, and if not then just use these posts for a nice sunshiney break 🙂 Thanks for letting us know.
