Thanks for a fun time again this year monkees, like other have posted I struggled a bit this year and didn't get to watch everything I wanted to. I'll be back next year and hope I can do better and at least hit the hundred mark.

Thanks Monkees. Had fun. I watched about as much as I figured I would. I always "hope" to watch more, but I was pretty realistic about how much I would be able to fit in with family, work and holiday festivities.

Thanks once again for all your work in running this Davey et al.

Minor quibble, but once again I can't hold back my OCD and must point out that the numbering is technically wrong. If two people are tied for 11th, there is no position 12, it jumps right to 13, for example.

Well then wouldn't one person be 11 and then the next person would be 12? I don't know, makes sense to me.

Right now, you have "13. LBCrazyFool - 66" even though there are 14 people ahead of them. They should be ranked 15. If two people are tied for 1st, the next place is 3rd. Any contest anywhere, that is how they list it. If two people tie for the gold at the Olympics, there is no silver.

No big deal, but that is the way it works.

Re: The 4th Annual Holiday Movie Challenge ***THE RESULTS***

Wow, 8th. Didn't hit my goal of 100 though. I was burning through them for the first couple weeks, but had too much stuff going on in the last few weeks. No time. I never even got to watch ONE New Years show or movie, and I had a list of them I planned to watch.
And when I DID have time to watch a movie, I stopped opting for holiday fare. It started feeling like more of a chore than fun.

I think next year instead of going for mass quantity I will set a goal to watch stuff I've never seen before, maybe 30.

...or something like that.
