*I don't really snack at the movies much. I love the smell of popcorn, but don't really care that much about the taste.

**Close runners-up include seeing Pulp Fiction with a packed house on opening weekend, The Blair Witch Project (which totally scared the shit out of me), and Giant Monsters All-Out Attack at the Egyptian, packed with people who were totally into it.

***I'm not sure what "theatrical" is supposed to mean--all those old shorts were originally played before features in theaters, so I'm counting them.

****Yes, all-girl rock band is a genre: Beyond the Vally of the Dolls, Ladies and Gentlemen the Fabulous Stains, Desperate Teenage Lovedolls (and the sequel, Lovedoll Superstar), Josie and the Pussycats, Prey for Rock n Roll...

*****Unless I can count Kill Bill. I'm not that into epics.
