Film: The Films of 2012

January 1, 2012 1 comment

I’ll kept this post updated with a list of every film I watch this year, including links to the opinion posts and the rating I give them. I think it will work better than 2010’s efforts (listing every film at the end of the year, by title and in order of viewing) or 2011’s (monthly recaps). I’m going to try three separate lists here: by title, by rating and in order of viewing.

Film: 2010’s Films By Month

January 13, 2011 4 comments

This is the fourth of a series of posts looking back at my entertainment consumption over 2010. I’ve already posted about 2010′s gaming backlog, the games I played, what games I played each month, what games I finished and what films I watched, and still to come are posts about the DVD backlog, the TV I watched and the books I read. There won’t be a game of the year post because that’s an ongoing project with a long way to go.

I didn't watch Avatar in 2009 but searching Google for a generic movie calendar was proving difficult (click the image for a link to the source).

This is the same list as yesterday’s but everything here is listed in the order I viewed them (and split by month), to get a better look at when I watched films and where there were any highs or lows in activity. After each monthly list I’ll share some thoughts on the month’s viewing. As I did yesterday I’ll be putting 2010 releases in bold and films I watched for the first time in italics:

Film: 2010’s Watched Films

This is the fourth of a series of posts looking back at my entertainment consumption over 2010. I’ve already posted about 2010′s gaming backlog, the games I played, what games I played each month and what games I finished and still to come are posts about what films I watched each month, the DVD backlog, the TV I watched and the books I read. There won’t be a game of the year post because that’s an ongoing project with a long way to go.

I only went to the cinema four times this year, and only twice with 3D glasses. Click the image for a link to the source.

In 2010 I watched 131 films, 58 of which I’d not seen before (44%). In this post I’ll list them in alphabetical order, putting 2010 releases in bold and films I watched for the first time in italics, and a few comments will follow at the bottom:

Film: 30 Movies in 30 Days: Final Thoughts

30 Movies

30 Movies (almost)

The month-long project is now at an end, with thirty topics about movies answered over thirty days. I have a few closing comments I wanted to share.

It was a lot of fun, which I think is the most important thing. At times I struggled to think of a definitive answer (and sometimes simply couldn’t), and I think a few them might not be as accurate as I’d like (like the greatest twist/surprise ending topic on day seven, for which I really need to watch a couple of other films, including Oldboy), but I’m fairly happy about pretty much every entry.
