I don't really think you can have a movie haul because you can only watch one movie at a time. But since Netflix is the bread and butter of my movie watching life, I usually keep my queue filled with movies awaiting to be watched. Actually: for a movie buff, my queue is probably pretty small... at the moment, it's currently 29, but that crumples to the 100 and something my dad has in his queue. But the thing is you know I only get to watch movies over the weekend so my queue is always full for me, with me adding a bunch of movies from time to time. (What I'm trying to say is: my queue never runs dry.)
The bottom line is I'm going to tell you what I've got in my queue right now. You'll probably be seeing reviews for these in the near future but don't be afraid to jump in and tell me what you thought of these (if you've seen them).
I would like to say this is in no particular order, but actually this is in chronological order though I change it frequently depending on my mood. (Like I've got "Psycho" in first place right now for Halloween). So take it anyway you want, really. ;)
- Psycho (1960): Janet Leigh, Anthony Perkins, Vera Miles
- The Dark Corner (1946): Lucille Ball, Clifton Webb, Mark Stevens... (like the only Lucy movie at Netflix I haven't seen yet).

I think the most common actress in there must be Bette Davis - I have a ton of Bette films! And the ones I'm probably most excited for are:
- "A Place in the Sun" (as luck would have it, there is a wait... grrr!)
- "Dark Victory"
- "Mr. and Mrs. Smith"
- "Mrs. Miniver"
- "The Killers"
- "A Star is Born"
But you know, I'm always pretty much excited to see any classic movie. :)
I hope this post wasn't boring and remember, if you've seen any of these twenty-nine films feel free to jump in with your opinion of it!!
Since I don't like my posts to be photo-less (I was going to put in movie posters but then I realized this post would just become humongous), I'll leave you with...
Veronica Lake all dressed up for Halloween (you know, to get us in the mood for the holiday). :D
