People say that life is the thing, but I prefer movies
I saw a lot of movies in college, because a) I'm a movie geek, b) I became the A&E Editor for the student newspaper, and c) watching movies is easier and cheaper than meeting women. The vast majority of my favorite movies were seen during this four year period. The following is the movies, split up between whether they rocked* me, indie** rocked me, prog*** rocked me, emo****-ed me, or grunge***** rocked me. The asterixed movies are ones I would put in my top ten favorite movies.

* They rock. These are great movies that everyone should love
** If too many people find out about these movies, I shall stop liking them.
*** These were supposed to make me more cerebral and get chicks and wound up irritating me
**** I enjoyed these, but they made me wallow in my inability to get chicks
***** I enjoyed these at the time and now I feel guilty for having liked them
