  1. Even thought the special effects by today's standards are hokey, the "The Exorcist" will always be the most disturbing movie, followed by "Hostel" and "Hostel 2" - I don't know that I have ever seen either the entire way through to this day, despite it being tamed down for television.

  2. My new favorite is The 5th Quarter! Can't wait to watch it with my mom..she'll love it!!

  3. my fvorite movie to watch is "it's a wonderful life"

  4. my favorite snack to eat when watching a movie is pizza!
