Tally for '10

Yes, I know we're already a good three months into 2011, but I finally finished copying my movies watched/rewatched list from all my little scribbled post-it notes. For 2010, like 2009, I wanted to keep track of all my movie viewings. Here's my results:

141 movies watched

Of these, 38 were new or new-to-me
103 were rewatched

I only saw 4 movies in the theater:
  • Avatar
  • Toy Story 3
  • Inception
  • Tron Legacy
(and 3 of those were in 3D!)

Among the new-to-me watchings included these how-did-I-not-see-it-before classics:
  • The Lady Vanishes
  • His Girl Friday
  • Ball of Fire
  • Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
  • Dinner at Eight
  • Dead Reckoning
  • Murder on the Orient Express
  • The Prisoner of Zenda (1937 and 1952 versions, 1937 is superior!)
  • In a Lonely Place

And there were 13 titles I (re)watched more than once:
  • (500) Days of Summer
  • Fantastic Mr. Fox
  • Sense and Sensibility
  • Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Blog
  • Tron (in preparation for the sequel)
  • Star Trek
  • How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying
  • Seven Days in May
  • Back to the Future
  • The 39 Steps
  • Julie and Julia
  • Desk Set
  • You've Got Mail

Overall, I'm right in line with 2009, where I watched (shockingly) 141 movies also! That was made up of 45 new/new-to me and 96 rewatchings, only 2 in the theater and 12 different multiple rewatched titles. (And strangely, the only one that made the rewatching list both years is You've Got Mail!)

One thing that did change in 2010 was having Instant Netflix available. I will say that it changed how I watched movies and perhaps influenced which movies I chose, but overall my consumption seemed about the same.

Now that I know my baseline, this year I'm simplifying by only keeping track of new and new-to-me showings. I'm at 10 so far!

I would have pegged you for seeing The King's Speech. I'm a little surprised not to see it on your list.

Apparently I don't see a movie in the theater unless it's 3D and/or IMAX! Maybe when they do the PG-13 re-release of The King's Speech I will get around to seeing it.

It's a pretty soft R. There's just some language is all, and it's only in specific scenes where the speech therapist tries to get Colin Firth to curse in order to loosen up.
