2011 Movies Watched

January 2011 – Just about a year ago we cancelled our satellite TV and invested in some rabbit ears. We found that if we turned on our TV at all it was generally to watch something on CBC or to watch a movie. You can pick up CBC with the rabbit ears and you can watch movies without having to pay for satellite or cable. We’ve never missed satellite and for the price of it we can buy quite a number of previously viewed DVDs.

I love movies and probably watch over 100 in any given year. Some old favourites get watched time and time again, whilst there are some that will never get inserted in the DVD player ever again! So here’s a list of what I’ve been watching lately. One’s that I saw for the first time I’ve marked with a * and have put in brackets the date and where/how I watched them. Bear in mind also that some I watched weren’t by choice either – some were chosen by Pamela and/or the kids.
