The Movies I Saw in 2014

I saw one more film in 2014 than 2013, but strangely, I apparently didn’t see any short film or, more likely, I didn’t record seeing them. With so much short-form video content available online it is difficult to figure out where to ‘draw the line’ in my recordkeeping.

After deciding last year that ~160 features a year was unsustainable, in 2014 I watched 158 159 features, so perhaps it is..

If you are interested in the technical guts of these graphs, look here.

The graphs, as well as the list itself, are behind the jump below…

  • Total # of movies:
  • Total # of features:
  • Total # of shorts:

The percentage of film I saw in a theater remained very similar to 2013.. This is still quite below the previous few years, and I maintain that probably has much to do with the declining experience in mainstream theaters. That said, I see more film in a theater than almost anyone I know (outside of Howard and my IFFBoston friends) so this is probably a much higher number than most.

The breakdown of where I saw film in 2014 is mostly unchanged from last year.
(You can use the button below the graph to omit the “Home” category if you are strictly interested in the breakdown of actual movie theaters.)

20-25% repeat viewings seems pretty standard over the past few years.

The genres I enjoy seem to be pretty stable..

The mysterious February spike of the past few years has disappeared. April spikes as expected due to IFFBoston. January and December were strong this year, and if I had to try and determine why I’d guess it was playing ‘catch up’ on either side of the new year.

That’s it for the graphs, below is the raw list of movies. If you hover your mouse over the title of a film you should get a brief review from me in the tooltip. (Titles in italics are repeat viewings.)
