/slashes/ signify a second viewing (for me, generally not for family members accompanying me)
* for which my family has still not forgiven me.
** under great duress on my part
*** which I saw by myself (despite having virtually zero interest) while the rest of the family went to Night at the Museum 2
**** because it turned out my dad was actually really hurt that I defected the previous year.
***** seen at home on awards screener after we couldn't get into Gran Torino—our first ever sell-out.
****** my eternal gratitude to whichever studio it is for releasing Game of Shadows a week earlier.
^ watched alone late at night after everyone else went to bed, because Dad couldn't go out to a movie for whatever reason that year.
