Back into our movie routine

Now that we are back in our winter spot we hopefully are settling back into our movie routine. As we blogged about last winter we try to go to a movie at least once a week when we are at a location for more than a few days. We have developed a pretty good routine as the Gateway Pavilions where we see the movies has a loyalty t-shirt that you buy and then get a free medium popcorn for all of 2011 and also a loyalty cup where we can pop get refills for $1. Just outside the theater is a Yogurtland where you can get 3 oz free with your movie stub, with about 20 varieties and free sample cups it is an adventure. So we have a weekly routine of a movie with popcorn and a pop and then top it off with frozen yogurt.

We just saw "Tower Heist" and liked it so we would give it a 3. Our total rating system is based a lot on our Netflix watching:

1 - sooooooo bad could not even finish
2 - sooooooo bad but could finish
3 - Liked it
4 - Really liked it
5 - Epic, Must See; worth seeing again in the theatre, worth buying the movie and watching again

We would add another rating of 6 to the Netflix rating system and that would be an all time favorites, which we posted in a previous blog entry. One all time favorite we realized we missed thanks to Bob's sister is "The Notebook" so we have repeated the list here adding it.

So here in no particular order is our list of all time favorite movies, although we are sure we may have missed a few:

The Godfather (1972)
The Godfather: Part II (1974)
The Thin Man (1934)
The Trip to Bountiful (1985)
