The Movies I saw in 2004

Here’s a list of the movies I saw this year…  If you compare it to last year’s list, you’ll notice that I saw a few more films in the theatre this year, more than one a week on average (which isn’t surprising since I head up the Boston Sunday Night Film Club).  You might also notice that I saw fewer films on video this year…  I guess that’s what getting a job’ll do to ya…  Damn employment! :)

This year’s list should be far more accurate than last year’s, since I kept track of the movies as I watched them, as opposed to trying to reconstruct the list from memory and Netflix history like I did last year.  I might have missed a few, but overall it is pretty comprehensive.  I even decided just now to link each of the films to their IMDB page (some are linked to Amazon because IMDB has no listing), so if you are wondering what a particular film was all about, you don’t have to hunt the info down.

Obviously, if I watch a film in the next 11.5 hours I will add it to the list, but I don’t expect to…  Then again, given that on average I’ve watched a movie almost every other day, you never know… :)
