Yes, that's right. I made it all the way to 2016 without ever having seen "Die Hard."
I have no idea how that happened, but there it was. And once Christmas rolled around, people started making Die Hard references and I was feeling left out of the game. I rented it on Google Play on Sunday, and finally gave it a watch.
Fun flick. And Alan Rickman...ooooooh, Alan Rickman. DAYum.
Which reminds me of another sad confession: I didn't watch "Love Actually" for the first time until last summer. What a wonderful movie and now a Christmas (and not Christmas) staple in our house.
There are a whole slew of movies I missed either because they're classics I never caught up on, or they came out when I was young (my family didn't see a lot of movies out), or they came out when my kids were young (and we never had a sitter, so we never went out). I have a lot of catching up to do. So here (in no particular order) is the list of movies I'm going to see in 2016:
1. The Tree of Life
2. Mad Max: Fury Road
3. 10 Things I Hate About You
4. Life is Beautiful
7. Kingsman: The Secret Service
8. No Country For Old Men
9. 12 Years a Slave
10. Little Miss Sunshine
I know, it's an odd list. But I'm going to cross each one off somehow, in all that free time I have. [Insert eye roll here]
