    I sucked it up last year, watching a piddly 12 titles, but vow to do much better this year! I actually have a week off of work in Feb. so I plan to watch a bunch of movies then.

    I am really looking forward to this one, and I hope you all are too!

    I have a furlough week in Feb. so maybe I can knock out a few more this year.

    Sweet! I'm sure I can knock out more than I did last year, but I know the Olympics will affect my total.

    The Olympics would probably inspire to watch MORE movies...instead of watching The Olympics.

    j/k, enjoy sir !

    Just to remind everyone, the challenge has now begun. I haven't watched anything yet, because of the Super Bowl and what not, but I'll start tomorrow! Can't wait! Thinking of starting off with a LOTR Marathon...
