POP CULTURE: Hackman Numbers

Here's a fun game if you're looking for time to kill -- what's your Gene Hackman Number? Real simple - just tick off how many of Hackman's movies you've seen, and "Hoosiers" only counts once no matter how many times you've seen it. (I think mine is 14).

Mine comes out to 16, but that's counting Marooned, which I only saw as a Mystery Science Theater episode, and A Bridge Too Far, which I saw as a young kid and remember nothing of, except the fact that I saw it. Then there's a few I've seen bits of but never watched the whole thing, which I didn't count.

I think Gene's trying to set a record for most John Grisham movies (2 done, 1 in the can).

My score was 17. I included movies that I've seen most, but not all of. Like "The Package" and "The Poseidon Adventure".

I didn't realize there were so many I had seen.
It appears he's a favorite of John Grisham, having been in 2 already with another on the way.
