50 Things To Do Before I'm 50 | Watch All Movies In Our Collection

When I added "watch all the movies in our collection" to my 50 Things To Do Before I'm 50 List, my goal was not to literally watch ALL the movies we own. I knew I'd skip the zombie, monster, and horror movies Robbie enjoys (but that do not appeal to me). My objective was to be intentional about taking time to watch the movies we've collected because there are so many movies that I really wanted to see and I enjoy spending a relaxing evening with Robbie watching a good show.

We actually have an inventory of our DVD/BluRay/VHS collection on a spreadsheet for a couple of reasons: (1) We have the collection in several places and it's easy to locate what we're looking for by checking the list; and (2) we (well, mainly Robbie) might have occasionally bought/ordered something that we already owned!!

I've been keeping track of my movie watching over the past five years.

I've actually watch 175+ movies! In all honesty, I'm not a huge movie/TV watcher, so this number tells me I've definitely been more intentional about enjoying our collection! After watching 20 Marvel Universe movies (in preparation to see Avengers Endgame) over the past three weeks, I'm happy to check this item completed!

Do you have a collection of movies? How often do you watch them?


  1. That's a lot of Marvel films ... I do hope Endgame was worth it!

  2. We do have a lot of movies, and I tend to re-watch the ones I have in my bedroom that hubby has no interest in (lots of PBS romances and mysteries). We should make a concerted effort to be sure that we have watched all the stash we have in the family room that includes a much wider variety. I also could make sure I listen to all the CDs I have up in the library, I used to play music all the time before I got hooked on audiobooks. I just ordered 2 new CD's so maybe that will get me back on track.

  3. We are big movie fans but rarely go out to see any - we prefer the comfort of our own movie room although sometimes I prefer to stay in the family room to watch my favourites with the fireplace on & the kitties on my lap. Mr Man watches the Marvel stuff, me not so much ...


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
