What Are You Planning to Check Off Your Pop-Culture Bucket List Before the World Ends Tomorrow?

As prophesier Harold Camping has patiently explained, the world ends tomorrow. According to the Atlantic, "We can expect the Rapture to start when it hits 6 p.m. at the International Dateline at 180 Longitude — roughly between Pago Pago, American Samoa, and Nuku'alofa, Tonga. We'll know it's Judgment Day because there will be an earthquake of previously unprecedented magnitude, Camping predicts." Adds the Times, "Believers are to be transported up to heaven as a worldwide earthquake strikes. Nonbelievers will endure five months of plagues, quakes, wars, famine and general torment before the planet’s total destruction in October." Okay then! Before all that awful stuff happens, you have two things to do: (1) repent, of course; (2) try and cram in as many of the movies, books, and TV shows you've always meant to check out but never got around to. For example, this particular Vulture correspondent has never seen The Godfather Part II, so we'll be spending the last night before the end of the world with Talia Shire and the gang. Okay, your turn!
