Last post for tonight, I promise

Fillums meme gakked from padawanpooh:

This is IMDb’s top 25 all-time box office hits. Bold the ones you saw in the cinema, italicize the ones you saw some other way instead, and leave the unseen ones alone.

1. Titanic (1997) $600,779,824 (with a large gaggle of people at uni)
2. Star Wars (1977) $460,935,665 (not the first time around)
3. Shrek 2 (2004) $436,471,036
4. E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1982) $434,949,459
5. Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999) $431,065,444
6. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (2006) $423,032,628 (beginning of the rot)
7. Spider-Man (2002) $403,706,375 (renders Civil War silly because we all know its doe-eyed Tobey Maguire under the mask [new Deadpool soon! I am quite excited about that])
8. Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005) $380,262,555 (Oh, I've just remembered Mad Larry's "N things about ..." things about these, for large values of N. I think someone cut and pasted them to the Faction board, I hope they didn't die in the fire.)
9. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003) $377,019,252 (About the only thing with more endings than Family of Blood)
10. Spider-Man 2 (2004) $373,377,893 (I wasn't fussed about seeing this, it was one of those least-offensive-to-all-parties cinema-going decisions
11. The Passion of the Christ (2004) $370,270,943
12. Jurassic Park (1993) $356,784,000 (This film annoys me a lot)
13. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002) $340,478,898 (It annoys me a lot how Helm's Deep got turned into a big setpiece thus distorting the balance of the narrative overall blahdiblah)
14. Finding Nemo (2003) $339,714,367 (never saw it at the cinema but it is the one of these I have seen the most; it's just brilliant)
15. Spider-Man 3 (2007) $336,530,303
16. Forrest Gump (1994) $329,691,196 (don't get the fuss about this at all)
17. The Lion King (1994) $328,423,001
18. Shrek the Third (2007) $320,706,665
19. Transformers (2007) $318,759,914 (I've seen about a third of it, it didn't enthrall me)
20. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (2001) $317,557,891 (I got into HP late)
21. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) $313,837,577
22. Iron Man (2008) $311,708,133 (and squeed about it here; it is this making me like Tony that has made me enjoy Secret Invasion 400% more)
23. Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002) $310,675,583
24. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End (2007) $309,404,152 (this was really quite shite, it had none of the soul of the original at all)
25. Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983) $309,125,40 (Again on re-release)

It's completely biased by inflation and shit (at least I assume so, it'd be depressing if this is all adjusted to current prices), which is why we've seen more of them than we think.
