That's it? If you cut out sleeping and work I bet you could squeeze in a few more.
I just caught Day of the Jackal for the first time in 30 years. It was as great as I remembered it.

Oh, no sir. You saw the rough draft list that I postmarked to run today. I had to edit a few more onto the end of the list. And, to be fair, some of these films were watched in the line of duty. As a cataloger, it's just something I'm forced to do.
