What I’ve figured out from this is that I like, actually, a fair bit of chick flicks… *bitch moan*
I think that I really don’t consider them chick flicks because the are kinda cool too… or maybe I’m wrong in thinking them chick flicks… Like… is Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon a chick flick??? It does have the concept of love in it… but then there is all the sword play and stuff… Same with Hero…. and House of Flying Daggers….
Also… If you are going to view a movie that’s been “Americanized” like The Ring… just watch the original… You’ll get a much better story. I don’t get why the Americans have to ruin good movies that way.
And.. before I get an irate comment about why I didn’t do Star Wars I, II and III…. Well… even though they are kinda cool, you won’t miss much if you don’t watch them before you die…. honestly. To me, the only thing that’s keeping the movies going is the brilliant acting of Ewan McGregor, a CGI green dude with large ears and guests starts, like Christopher Lee. Basically the only one I like of the three is 1. Liam Neeson is in it.. and that alone should be enough reason to watch it… so ok… we’ll put that on the reserve.. just in case you find I’ve doubled up on something… :3

There are also series that you HAVE to see before you die… one of them being Dexter…
the other one is Taken… or Steven Speilberg presents Taken… Dakota Fanning is amazing in it… as she is in all she’s in. Did you ever see War of the Worlds where she out acted Tom Cruise with a simple look?
Sadly, for me, even thought Dakota is great… it still has Tom Cruise in it… I admit I have seen it once… but no more… I won’t see it again (even if Tom can talk to aliens…)
Also… Eleventh Hour. I can understand if people don’t like it… But I do.. and I highly recommend it.
OH!!! and of course The Big Bang Theory… So funny… XD

Later I’ll try to scramble up an, at least, 10 books to read before you die.. Too bad I’m thinly read
