The Seen, The Unseen and the Don’t-Wanna-See’s

Ok, haven’t been blogging much lately. Whatever’s left of my life is undergoing some kinda radical change, and I’ve got a writer’s block to boot.
But, can’t let jimmythekid.blogspot.com die – right? So, here’s something similar to what 3inOne had put on her blog… only, this one’s for movies, not books.
I have pinched these from IMDB‘s top ten list of movies. The rules are mostly similar to the original thing.

1. Type “SAW” for movies you have seen.
2. Type “SAW… AND WOW!” for movies you have seen and liked very much.
3. Type “HAVEN’T” for movies you… well… haven’t seen.
4. Type “YUKK!” for movies you saw but didn’t like.
5. Type “WANNA” for movies you want to see.

So there!

The Godfather SAW AND WOW!
The Shawshank Redemption SAW AND WOW!
The Godfather: Part II SAW
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly SAW
Pulp Fiction SAW AND WOW
Casablanca SAW AND WOW
Schindler’s List SAW
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King SAW
Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back HAVEN’T
Shichinin no samurai WHAT?
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest SAW AND WOW
Star Wars HAVEN’T
Rear Window YUKK!
12 Angry Men SAW AND WOW!
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring SAW
Raiders of the Lost Ark SAW
The Usual Suspects SAW
Goodfellas WANNA
Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb WANNA
Once Upon a Time in the West WANNA
Psycho SAW AND WOW!
Citizen Kane SAW
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers SAW
North by Northwest WANNA
Memento SAW AND WOW
The Silence of the Lambs SAW
Lawrence of Arabia SAW
Sunset Blvd. SAW
It’s a Wonderful Life WHAT?
Fight Club SAW
Amélie WANNA
The Matrix SAW
American Beauty SAW AND WOW!
Vertigo SAW
Taxi Driver YUKK!
Apocalypse Now WANNA
Se7en SAW
Léon WANNA
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind YUKK!
Paths of Glory SAW AND WOW!
American History X SAW
To Kill a Mockingbird SAW
Chinatown WANNA
The Third Man WHAT?
Laberinto del fauno, El WHAT?
Untergang, Der WANNA
The Pianist SAW

Note: “YUKK” doesn’t necessarily mean those movies were the worst I have ever seen. It just means they did not live up to my expectations.
Aside from that Eternal Sunshine crap, of course…

  1. Jimmy,
    I love Blade Runner
    and my favorite sappy corny movie is Harry and the Hendersons.

    Have you ever tried getting up in the morning and writing first thing. Whatever popps into your head..write it. Does not matter what it is. Three pages. It really does help.

  2. Oh, I haven’t seen ‘Blade Runner’, have heard so much about it…
    You’re right… I should make a habit of writing stuff regularly. Once you take a hiatus, it gets all the more difficult.
    It’s just that things have been quite hectic lately. Changed my job … and though I haven’t joined yet, I m taking time getting used to the idea.
    The transition period always weights heavy on me – and – I invariably end up with a writer’s block.

  3. For the first time, i thought i’d read and post a comment and the gentleman takes the easy route. Anyway, i agree with u on Eternal sunshine…
    Had gone for it the last day of my exams last year nad i was snoring. felt asleep in an already empty hall and whoever were present cud see the teeth (the only conspicous thing in me) in the darkness of a hall as my mouth was wide open! UTTERLY BORING I SAY!
