I like lists. I make a lot of lists, most of which don’t come to anything. Most lists are about films. Which ones I want to see, which ones the experts tell us to see, lists of directors work, lists of actors work…you get the idea. I sound like some kind of nut, but I’m not, honest, Harvey tells me I’m fine and I believe him.
Anyway, since January 2004 I’ve kept a list of every film (probably 99%) that I’ve watched. I’m not alone in this of course, there are websites dedicated to logging which films you’ve watched, which is why I know I’m no nut!
So the reason for this post is this. On Friday November 11th, I reached 160 films watched in 2011. The film was Monty Pythons Life of Brian. I didn’t particularly enjoy it, I’m a fan of the television show but I’ve not enjoyed their films, I’m not sure why.
So 160 films means I’ve watched a film on average every two days since Jan 1 2011 – okay now I sound like some kind of nut. If only I was good at film criticism, I could get paid to watch them.
