  1. You haven’t seen Lifeforce? Go. Rent. On The Puppet Masters, stick to the book.

    Not doing this meme ‘coz I’ve seen and/or read all but a handful and it’d take too long to mark it up.

  2. I’m ashamed to say that I’ve only read AND seen two of these!

  3. Charli, No, I haven’t…I don’t think. I saw some vampire in space movie on the Sci-fi channel, but I have no idea what the title was.

    LOL, cheater. *g* ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Amie, I kind of felt that way, too, when I saw the list. Then I realized I did see a lot of the movies. I would’ve probably picked a few different movies, if I was doing a personal list. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I’m a freak. I’ve seen most of them, and read half. Solaris was nearly unwatchable. Even Ms. Snark must have had a hard time watching Clooney in that one. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Bernard, Not a freak, just a man. *ggg* As for Solaris, darn, I wanted to see that one.

  7. I must disagree with Bernard, Solaris is stunning. But it helps if you’ve read The God Particle (nonfiction, physics) which explains the Higgs Boson. ๐Ÿ˜†

  8. Charli, Now I’m going to have to watch it. I’ll look up the theory you’re referring to before I do. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Have to agree with Bernard on this one. Solaris sucked big time. Maybe I would have liked it more if I’d read the book.

    You should rent The Mothman Prophecies. It was an underrated film (IMO). Maybe I’ll look up the book.

  10. Okay, I posted mine. And uhmm I’m a bit embarassed about how many I read. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

  11. Toni I totally agree on The Mothman Prophecies! I loved it but I love me some weird sh*t LOL

    Charli ur scarin me ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    PS Mine’s up

  12. Toni, Okay, now I’m torn about Solaris.

    I’ve heard a lot of good things about The Mothman Prophecies. I watched a few minutes of it when it was on television, but grew concerned that it may scare the crap out of me, so I turned it off. *ggg*

  13. Sasha, You and me both. If it weren’t for Michael C., I’d be in trouble on the reading front.

  14. Amie, I love bad monster movies, so that should give you an indication of where I’m at on the movie watching scale. I luck out and catch a good one or two along the way, but for the most part they’re pretty bad…just the way I like them. ๐Ÿ˜€

  15. The Mothman Prophecies is a movie I enjoyed, and if I found the book I’d still read it. I think the book would be way better.

  16. I have mine up. I’ve suprisingly read more books that were made into movies than I first thought. Any King story or Philip K Dick made into a movie, I’ve read it.

  17. Sasha, The books normally are better. The thing that throws me off is if they significantly change the movie and I try to read the book. It’s like getting two completely different stories.

  18. Vivi, That’s cool. I’ll come check it out.

  19. Jordan MM is scary-weird not scary-scary for whatever that’s worth. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  20. Amie, Oh okay, good. I tend to avoid the scary-scary kinds of movies. I only like to be a ‘little’ scared.

  21. I noticed from this meme that a lot of folks have seen The Incredible Shrinking Woman. I came across it on cable last fall and holy toledo is that film unwatchable now. I really wanted to finish it, but it was just so horrific. I can’t even recommend it as a “good bad” movie.

    Anyway, you’re a sport for playing, Jordan!

  22. Heather, I haven’t seen that movie in a VERY long time. I tend to watch things like the original Blob and the Forbidden Planet a lot.

    No worries. It was fun. ๐Ÿ™‚
