As regular readers know, I keep a list of all of the movies I see each year. Â I saw more movies this year (160) than each of the past two (147).. Â I did include a handful of shorts on the list this year, though. Â This was also the first year I kept track of the date on which I saw each movie, which will allow me to see trends in years moving forward.
My “Best of 2011” list will hopefully be done in the next few days. Â Unlike the past few years, I’ve decided to do the list now instead of waiting until the Oscars. Â I found waiting to actually be more stressful, for some reason. Â Anyway, all the gory details are after the jump…
The formats in which I consume movies hasn’t changed drastically from last year.. Â Some more movies in the theater, some fewer movies on disc.
I watched more movies for the first time this year (83%) vs last year (80%)
And while documentaries continue to be a favorite of mine, they took more of a back seat to other genres this year
Finally, here is the month-by-month tallies of my consumption
You can see a big jump in April.. Â It is no coincidence that the 2011 Independent Film Festival of Boston straddled these months.
Enough data porn, here’s the list. Â As usual, movies in Italics are repeat viewings.
