David Z’z 2010 Movie List Project

Lists lists lists…this is the first year I’ve tried to keep up with all the movies I watch in a year-and the results for 2010 are already kind of scary. Yep, I somehow manage to watch a lot of films and somehow do things like play the entire campaign of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 in two sittings. 
Well, if nothing else, I’m putting my love of movies to good use.  How about you? Anyone else track their viewings?
As for the ratings, these are quick numbers more rated by my enjoyment than any kind of critical standard. For me however, I can’t imagine ever rating a movie higher than the fun it gives me!  Here we go…

  2. I've kept a record of all the movies I've watched since the beginning of 2003. 1676 of them. I'm kind of obsessive about it. But I've found that it's extremely useful to have a record.

  3. I've kept track of all films I've seen since 1992!
    In my teen years I would watch around 700 flicks a year…
    Nice to see I'm not the only freak out there 😉

  4. Great list Lars, we have the same rating for Paula Paula-see, I forgot to add it to my list. It should be easy to remember…

    I really started jotting down my movies when I was watching all the Peplum films in November/December. It gets TOUGH to keep them all straight!

  5. Thanks!
    Yeah, not all Franco films translate easy into the regular 1-10 rating system and with Paula-Paula its almost impossible! Is it even a “film”? The world most unpretentiouss experimental film , maybe? I think I kind of liked it though, it was way more enjoyable to me than most One Shot films… but what I really loved about it was the fantastic Friedrich Gulda score! Even if I will wake up one day and realise that Paula-Paula sucked I will always be thankful for the film for getting me into Gulda, together with Cecil Taylor my new favorite jazz pianist.
