Top 5 Movies...not!

...and I say "not!" because as I was making my list, I discovered I only saw five movies, in total, in 2005! This includes at the theater *and* video.
{I still call anything we rent "video" even though it's been DVD for how long??!}
{and, who am I kidding with the "we rent" statement - I have not even been *in* a video store for... three years?? It's Eric's thing, all the way}
So... this is not a Top Five list, it is The Five list.

This was prompted by my morning visit to Katie, thescrapbooklady's blog and her posting of her top 5 movies. And I thought, that could be cool thing to scrap. When I look back in like 10 years, it would be like a little time capsule.

The Five Movies Kristin Saw in 2005
Seen with my two oldest, as An Outing With Mom:

We rented this for a date night at home:


Another seen with the two Big Kids, because Elizabeth especially wanted to see this:
I saw this one with my mother-in-law, part of a premier screening in Cody, Wyoming! because the book authors live in Cody. This was a big deal for my sister-in-law's book club, winning tickets for all of them to go, and they gave two extra to us. We "dressed up" and had dinner at Maxwell's before The Show.


And this one, Our One and Only Date in 2005!


Katie linked to this cool listing of 2005 movies that I used to make my list. Thanks, Katie, for the inspiration!

One other list I made:

Movies I’m surprised I didn’t see:
Mr & Mrs Smith
Shop Girl
Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants – because Liz talked about it SO much!
Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire
Star Wars Revenge of the Sith
Miss Congeniality 2
Perfect Man
Just like Heaven
Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe

If you make your own list, leave me a link!

I can't believe I haven't seen Walk the Line or Narnia yet either! Doh! Oh well, that's what Netflix is for!

How was "Walk the Line"? I don't know much about Johnny Cash but I heard it's great and I'd like to see it since it's supposed to be up for a ton of Oscars!

If you have any young children I don't suggest Harry Potter or the Chronicles of Narnia. I took my five year old to Harry Potter and I was so glad she fell asleep before the end. It was a little too graphic for a five year old and I went with my friend for her birthday to see Narnia and that was a little strong on the violence end too, we were glad we didn't bring our girls.
