This is the coolest thing ever! Accomplishing to watch so many movies for a year is a big wow. I like movies too, i've bought an external hard disk to store all the movies i had already watched and i think its only 10% of you got on your list, very impressive! Kung mapapabalik ko lang ang oras, sana nag FAVC na lang ako, hehe
