  2. Wow, you've got some great selections! I completely forgot to add Bridget Jones' Diary and The Notebook to my list.

  3. I couldn't stand The Notebook. I need to rewatch it and see if my opinions have changed now that I'm older.

    Great list!

  5. I *despise* the Percy Jackson movie. I hope they stick to the story in the sequel.
