Movies Seen in 2013

In 2013 I saw 202 feature length movies and 56 short films (those under 40 mins). That's a little more than last year's numbers of 197 and 44.

Pie Chart of 78% features and 22% shorts

Usually I'm about 80-20 first time vs repeats, this year a few less repeats.

Bar chart showing features were 85% first run and shorts were 93% first run

I rate on the Netflix 5 point scale where 1 is hated, 2 is didn't like, 3 is I liked it, 4 is really liked and 5 is loved. I had a pretty average curve for me though I gave out 22 5's, the most ever.

Bar chart of ratings of features and shorts

I saw 67 features in the theater and most of the rest on cable. This year I didn't watch any of my DVDs though I did do three DVDs from Netflix and streamed eight. I also saw a lot of the shorts online, 25 of them on YouTube and 9 on Vimeo. The Sundance festival released some shorts online this year and I found some old Oscar winners online too.

I've got a few theaters I go to regularly, though the Somerville gets so much because of IFFBoston. The shorts I see in the theater are the Oscar nominees when they show them at the Coolidge. I wish more films showed shorts before the features instead of endless previews that give away too much. My rule now is if there are more than 20 minutes of trailers I complain to the manager. I know at a chain it's not their fault, but they're who I can complain to.

April and December are my big movie months and I see less in the summer. April is IFFBoston, and December is I guess holidays (and trying to reach a goal number of movies). Almost all my shorts viewing is Oscar related.

My viewing was really skewed towards recent films this year.

And I saw very few foreign films this year.

I break down films into five genres that I'm pretty happy with. I then use some sub-genres and I still have a hard time putting every film in one. There are lots of Dramas and Comedies that have no sub-genre. But here's how it looks for this year:
