Goodbye 2006

It's been a long time since I posted and I have only a list to offer you. It is, however, no ordinary list. This is a list that has been a year in the making. About a year and a quarter back I decided that I'd start maintaining a list of all the movies I watched. I figured since I watched so many of them and since they were such a drain on my time and well, just that because almost all of them were acquired free of cost from the inter-hostel LAN (which is the best bloody thing about IIT and which deserves a post to itself) I might as well make a list and keep count so I could measure my effort. I found out recently that a friend who I often talk about movies with and who's also often the only one I can talk about them with is such a friend for a reason - he watched more than 160 movies in the last calendar year! I have watched a little more than half of that number but even that is impressive by the lay watcher's standards. Here's the list:
