The Watch More Movies Initiative of 2011

Halfway through the year I started to feel like posting about movies I'd seen was getting boring, as I am not a movie reviewer.  I compiled a (hopefully complete) list of all the movies I watched in 2011 and put it here, on its own page.  

My goal for last year was not specific, just to watch more movies, which I definitely did.  For some reason I had just gotten out of the habit of watching movies, and watched very few in 2010.

One cool thing I did in 2011 was focusing on watching the movies that were nominated for a Best Picture Academy award, and watched most of them (excepting, embarrassingly, the actual winner: The King's Speech, which I do still want to see).

My specific goals for 2012 are to watch 52 movies (one a week should certainly be doable), to watch every movie nominated for Best Picture, and to see at least 6 movies in the theatre (last year we only saw 2 in the theatre, which is pitiful given how much we love the theatre experience).

Here we go, 2012!


  1. I have a few friends on Twitter who keep track of how many movies they watch in a year and tweet each one with its corresponding number. My tiny goal of 52 is nothing compared to the 200-300 (or more) movies they watch. Of course, film is their main hobby, and for me it comes behind so many other things (writing and photography, etc).

    Happy new year, Angella!


Tell me what you think!
