You know you are slacking when you take the time to put all those in bold, too. :)

Bolding them was relatively painless, since I was using Ecto; I just highlighted each one I'd seen and hit command-B.

I used BBEdit and it took no time at all. Even though I had a few more to bold than you did :-)

This meme is very prone to version skew... Actually it's the DEFINITION of version skew.

Be interesting to know how many the original list began with. One could then count off the triplets to determine the contributors groupings. Heathers, Bull Durham, The Scorpian King --- interesting combo.

Jason, the version skew makes it a lot easier to track "child posts," though.

Francois, it was hard to decide which three to include. :)

Interesting points on this meme, Liz, Jason, and Francois. It's odd to see disparate films (Forrest Gump and Clockwork Orange, for example) next to each other.

Not to mention Harry Potter #2 up there at 57, while Harry Potter #1 is down at 154...

Sugest to see Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest - it's really cool!
