A 2011 In Films Special: 1000 New-To-Me Films

So I did it you guys. I saw 1000 new-to-me films this year. And it’s…only November. So I’m guessing by the end of the year I’ll be well past this goal. It’s been a great experience watching all of these films. I’ve never felt so intellectually stimulated in my whole life. There are just so many wonderful films out there to watch. I don’t know if I’ll ever have the time to watch as many films as I have had this year, so I’m glad I took advantage of the time while I had it.

I chose Bruce Robinson’s cult classic Withnail & I as my 1000th film because I’d been meaning to watch it for years. It did not disappoint.

Oh, and in case you’re curious you can see what the 1,000 new-to-me films were here.

  1. Congrats! That’s very very impressive. I’m not sure I could’ve done it.

    Could you pick maybe 5 favorites?

  2. Congrats! That’s quite a milestone. πŸ™‚

  3. Good Job! To set a goal like that and reach it takes discipline. Very impressive.

  4. Wow, 1000 movies in one year? That is really impressive! I was feeling pretty good about getting up to 200 movies this year, but now I don’t feel as proud. πŸ™‚ But seriously, great job!
