It's the most magical time of year, people! We've been tracking all the films I've watched all year and now it's finally time to get some numbers. In total it was a very good year - the most movies I've watched since 2018 (where I cranked a staggering 249 movies, I don't think I'll hit that again and ever have a normal life). 200 really is becoming right around my average. Maybe a high average. Here's our total stats!
I only saw two movies twice this year. Jackass Forever and The Northman. Both well worth it!
It was a good year all around but boy I watched some really bad movies this year. A lot of that was me trying to clean up some queues with the 52 in '22 series. I don't regret doing that, but it's tough to learn the hard lesson that most movies that people think are bad are very bad. But I'm happy with my numbers this year, as always there could be more older films added but I'm always just glad to get every decade represented. The most recent year unrepresented was 2000, which is good I guess. That's getting to be a while ago!
Every single year I think about not doing this, but the effort isn't all that much for the fun data we get out of it. I enjoy stripping it down and this year was much more reasonable. Again we don't really have a reason to judge things by month but it's a nice way to organize a massive ridiculous list. What if I started tracking by genre? Ooh that's a good bad idea.
See you next year!
