Thursday Thirteen #92 -- One reason why we fight over the remote ...




If you're a movie fan, you should have bookmarked. It's a treasure trove of verified information and fascinating trivia about films (TV, too). The film buffs who run this site recently asked their registered users to name the top movies of all time. I think it's interesting how the boys' list differs from the girls'. Here I thought Titanic would be the ultimate chick flick, but I guess it's The Lord of Rings Trilogy.

First, the men have their say:

1. The Godfather (1972)
2. The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
3. The Godfather, Part II (1974)
4. The Dark Knight (2008)
5. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (1966)
6. Pulp Fiction (1994)
7. Star Wars – The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
8. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975)
9. Schindler’s List (1993)
10. Twelve Angry Men (1957)
11. The Seven Samurai (1954)
12. Star Wars (1977)
13. Goodfellas (1990)

Now here are the top films of all times, as rated by women:

1. Shawshank Redemption (1994)
2. The Dark Knight (2008)
3. Schindler’s List (1993)
4. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)
5. Rear Window (1954)
6. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
7. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975)
8. The Godfather (1972)
9. Casablanca (1942)
10. The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
11. The Usual Suspects (1995)
12. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)
13. Gone with the Wind (1939)

This just in! Job security into December.

My boss told one of the art directors that there's an important agency-client meeting set for December 5. Management will have a solid idea of what's coming in, and how many of us will be needed, then. I choose to believe this, even though I didn't get it first hand. I suspect my boss will share similar information with the whole team tomorrow during our status meeting, and besides, I like believing I have until December 5 before I begin freaking out again.
