Our Birthday Week + Weekend in Pics

Hungry and I have birthdays just four days apart. Hungry went really above and beyond to make my day(s) special and made sure to include everything that would make me happy: delicious Italian dinner, massage, board games, and family time. For Hungry’s birthday, we kept it low key: played video games, went out to a casual (but delicious) Peruvian dinner, and exchanged cool presents. Very grateful to everyone for their love!

The Greatest Movies of All Time

A few weeks ago, we wrapped up our Top 10 Greatest Movies of All Time. We treated this exercise the same as our 25 Greatest Video Games Ever Countdown, which allowed everyone involved to determine their own guidelines for their list. If you’ve been following and reading the captions each week, you’ll notice that some lists spanned over the lifetime of a writer, while others were based just in their childhood. It is intriguing to say that least.

We decided once again to compile the lists and create our consensus Top 5 Movies of All Time. There were much fewer similarities this time around. The only movies repeated on two lists were Blade Runner, Beauty and the Beast, The Dark Knight, The Fifth Element, The Lion King and Life Aquatic.

Other series were even less represented, which speaks volumes about the numbers of films that exist and the diversity in our writers.
