Movies Seen in 2014

Previous Years: 2013, 2012, 2011

In 2014 I saw 191 feature length movies and 30 short films (those under 40 mins). That's a little less than the last two years.

85% first run features is same as last year. For shorts, last year was 93%.

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.

Same as last year I saw 67 features in the theater and most of the rest on cable. I only watched 9 films on Netlix this year, 6 on DVD and 3 streaming.

This year I didn't watch any DVDs and just watched one blu-ray, Inception on New Years I streamed nine films on Netflix. Shorts are different, aside from the Oscar nominated shorts in the theater, I basically watch them online, 90% of them on YouTube.

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. Boston got a new theater this year at Assembly Row, next year there will be more food choices nearby so I'll probably go more often.

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). Usually most of my shorts viewing is Oscar related, the spike in June was finding a lot of AFI shorts online.

Yet again, my viewing was really skewed towards recent films this year. I saw 61 features from 2013 and 68 from 2014.

I guess May and June are the barren months for Oscar nominated films. These are films from any year that got a nomination or won, not just from last year's Oscars. They also (obviously) don't include any films that came out this year that will get nominated at the end of the month.

Yet again I feel like I need to see more foreign films:

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:
