What I Watched in May

Usually I write this 'intro paragraph' of my What I Watched posts before the month really gets under way. However, this time I am writing it after the month is already over. After coming home from Disneyland on the 4th of May, I had big plans for lots of movie watching and bumping those numbers up to account for the few days I was out of watching action. Then, if you read this post, you know what happened! That has eaten up a bit of my time. Still, I got a few good ones in and a lot less bad ones.

More than anything, the thing that disappoints me about this month is that I was a measly 2 movies away from hitting 200 overall this year! I would very much have liked to be able to reach 250 by the end of June marking the half way point of both the year and the goal...52 may be a little bit of a stretch though. We shall see. Unwatched I am at 76 over 5 months, that is on average 15 per month putting me behind on that goal too. Must try harder in June....eek! Please do send reccomendations, especially of movies availible on Netflix. Thanks in advance ;)
