I Am Thirty Years Old...

... as of right now.
Here's me, all 30 years of me, in movies:

I'll readily admit that these (or, at least, some of these) aren't the greatest films from the past 30 years, but they're my favorites, the ones that've shaped this twisted brain, the ones I can watch over and over again and will continue to watch until the day I die. I chose one for each year, picture-wise, but the list at the top includes some very close runners-up.

i'd just like to know how much trouble you had finding the right picture to use for brokeback mountain.

I plan to rip off this idea shamelessly come September.

Kisses, kitten.
Happy happy.

Great idea, Ja! And you put Hoop Dreams on there and that warms the cockles of my cold dead heart.

(I sent you an email with other stuff)

Thanks everyone for the warm bday wishes! I stayed off the computer yesterday, hence my day-late-gratitude, but y'all seriously rock! I treated myself to a big-screen screening of Wolf Creek which amazingly was playing near my house just on my birthday; the gods of horror smiled upon me. Was lovely.

To everyone who wants to steal this idea for a post - awesome, I can't wait to see what y'all come up with! Was a lot of fun to do.

Happy Birthday (a day late)! I hope you had a great one.

As someone who also turned 30 this month, your list of favorite/influential movie was a great trip down my own memory lane. Thanks for posting it!

Happy birthday!

You're 30? Still a wee babe in nappers.

Marius said...

Happy belated birthday, ja? So, you're 30. How does it feel? I turn 30 in less than a month.

This is what comes of being busy and not checking peoples' blogs; you miss their birthdays. I need to get an RSS reader or something. But enough about me: happy birthday, JA. Excellent post. Enjoy what is technically the last year of your twenties... it's over much too quickly.


love it and i am so happy i was there to celebrate it. thanks for the invite!
