New Year's DVD Challenge

When we sit down for an evening of watching dvds, the teen and I can never decide which to watch - sometimes we seem to spend as much time making up our minds as actually watching!
So, here is the cunning plan to reduce that decision making time - we pick Film A at random (Love, Actually as it turned out) then Film B must have one actor in common with it (Dave - with Laura Linney in common); a different actor (Kevin Kline) makes the link to Film C (Definnitely, Maybe) ; another (Abigail Breslin) from C to D (Nim's Island). etc etc
I think it just mainly proves how nerdy we are! - and that possibly we spend too much time watching DVDs.  I don't know how long we can keep going through our dvd collection this way without having to repeat something - and how we're ever going to make a link to the House of Flying Daggers. We tried to work it to include films as shown on TV but even one week in that's proving too difficult so they're excluded.

Anyway, so far we've watched

Love, Actually - linked by Laura Linney to
Dave - linked by Kevin Kline to
Definitely, Maybe - via Abigail Breslin to
Nim's Island - via Gerard Butler to
