This article would be more interesting if 90% of the movies selected weren't DTV throwaways.

That was only Part 1. Part 2 is all non-DTV throwaways.

fun read...and nice job, Aaron! Too funny what lack of sleep does to you. Back in January, I flew back home (California) from Switzerland for business. I had already been up for about 10 hours before I got on the plane (and this was after about 5 hours sleep). I can never sleep on a plane, so I planned what movies to watch. I chose 3 and decided to watch them in order of which I thought I would enjoy most...started with Cowboys/Aliens (didn't care for it), went on to Colombiana (exactly as expected...decent flick, although I regret seeing it on the plane...nudity would've been nice), and ended with the new Footloose during the last 3 hours of the 12 hour flight...LOVED it...actually made me emotional and even laughed a bit out loud. So, I rent it when it finally gets released, and realized...sleep deprivation can make you actually like a lame movie.

This makes me want to try this some time. No way I'll be able to come close to this, but I might be able to manage 16-17 hours. I'd have to experiment a little more with caffeine first... I've never really found it to have much effect on me.

I have plenty of Blu-Rays that need watching... it would be a great chance, and something every movie lover should do at least once!

That settles it... this is on my to-do list. You can decide whether I am being inspired by or simply stealing an idea. :P

Sweet --- look forward to reading it.

Fun idea! (meant to put that in my original post, but got distracted by the kiddos. Didn't mean for it to be a negative-nancy post.

Which reminds me. I have to do one of these this weekend. Haven't done one since Halloween's horrorfest.

This is awesome.

Years ago my friend steered me to a special showing of Star Treks 1-6. I wish I knew what year it was. I had not seen #1 from beginning to end, and never saw 6. They movies started at about 11am and went till maybe 1am. There were breaks in between the movies. It was an unbelievable experience. This reminds me of it. I love movie marathons.
