        Just to let you know. close to 500 hours spent in a theater in the span of a decade isn't cool. It's sad. very very very sad.

        One thing I find strange is he claims that The Black Cauldron was the first movie he saw in theaters which was released on July 24 1985. However He also claims to have seen Godzilla 1985 in theaters but that was released on Dec 15 1984. More than 7 months BEFORE Black Cauldron.

          Honey I Shrunk the Kids
          Peter Pan

              The First Movie I saw was Lady and the Tramp. 1986
              then, it was mostly Disney Re-releases Aristocrats, I think Robin Hood, uh... I saw Land Before time and the Last of that year was either Oliver and Company or Bambi.. Saddened by Bambi's Mom's death? Naw Heartless but was confused to why she didn't come back. Me and My ma talked about it during the film but stopped after Thumper got horney over a girl bunny... I'm sorry for the rule 34 implication (was not intened) lots of laughs
              Who Want's some BLOGna!!?
              Did you know they'll make a game show out of..

                Only The Land Before Time but I don't remember it very well. Probably because I was only three at the time.

                  I saw... NONE! I was born in '89. Saw plenty of movies in the last two decades though. Probably not enough to make a BS pinface list, but close.
