When I was young, I could not sit still to watch a movie. My attention span was set to 28 minutes by Gilligan's Island, Batman, Adam-12, and The Monkees. I could never sit still, and "hated" movies except the grossest of comedies or action flicks.

During home-schooling, we wanted our son to see movies that taught moral lessons. Twelve Angry Men, Lilies of the Field, Gentleman's Agreement, Best Years of Our Lives. When the AFI list came out, we started methodically watching them. Suddenly I've seen over 300, often getting 4 at a time from the library. Who am I?
