The Movie Lists

The lists are simple.  I order movies seen in theatres by how much I enjoyed them. The top bolded section is above the "Threshold of Awesome", the bottom italicized section are the movies where I genuinely want my money/time back. I have no intention of explaining one over the other here.  If you want to discuss any of these decisions with me, wait until I'm published, then come talk to me at a signing ;P
