X = Those I'm unlikely to ever watch, including ones I've already seen and have no desire to watch again.
M = The few I actually saw in a theater.

Well, you outdid me on the number of films seen. I didn't think to note which ones I own -- good touch! A quick count finds that only only own... 8 of them.

The film I've most recently gotten to see for the first time was 1969's The Wild Bunch, which I finally caught on one of the movie stations within the past month.

Side note: I like the new text in yout "About Me" section and approve of your not having any of that damned nougat.
