My comments:

Wow…!

 

A) There are a lot of good movies out there that I meant to see and did not.

 

B) There is not a single year when I saw all five movies. (Though, I’d really like to see The Shawshank Redemption and the Postman. If I saw one of those, I’d have seen all five that year.)
 

C) I have not see a single nominee since 2004…and there’s hardly a movie in that list of 20 (from 2004 to 2008) that I want to see, (though there are a few.)

 

D) I bet if the list went back farther, there would be years where I had seen all five. (Used to be an old movie buff.)

 

How about you?
