My Bucket List

I know it doesn't open for another week, but I want to talk about The Bucket List starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman.

The Bucket List follows two terminally ill men as they go on a road trip to accomplish the things they want to do before they die, or 'kick the bucket', hence 'Bucket List.'

This movie has such potential - should it be funny or sad or inspiring or light-hearted? Should it have a happy ending (i.e. should Nicholson and Freeman accomplish their to-dos before kicking the bucket) or should it be a wake-up call to viewers (one of them doesn't finish their list)?

I'm interested in seeing how the movie plays out. Until then, here's my Bucket List - what's on yours?
  • Skydive
  • Travel to Alaska
  • Travel to Ireland
  • Write a book
  • See the Atlantic and Pacific oceans
  • Scuba dive
  • Get another tattoo
  • Watch Buffy straight through from Season 1, Episode 1 to Season 7, Episode 22
  • Watch Angel straight through from Season 1, Episode 1 to Season 5, Episode 22
  • Ride a mechanical bull
  • Karaoke
  • Take a hot air balloon ride
  • Ride in a helicopter
  • Learn how to spell 'weird'
