Gordon Saw What Barack Gave Him This Spring

A frivolous game of ‘have you seen all the movies Obama gave Brown‘, because I got tagged by The Bristol Blogger, who was in turn tagged by Kezza McCarza EmPee.

Here’s the list of films:

  • Citizen Kane
  • Casablanca
  • Lawrence of Arabia
  • Schindler’s List

  • ET: The Extra-Terrestrial
  • The Graduate
  • The Godfather
  • The Searchers
  • Star Wars: Episode IV

  • To Kill a Mockingbird
  • Sunset Boulevard
  • On the Waterfront
  • Raging Bull
  • Singin’ in the Rain
  • Gone with the Wind
  • City Lights

Apparently you score two points for every film you own and a single point for any film you’ve seen.
