Films in 2012: June

New to me: 62

Re-watches: 30 (some of which were for Adaptation Month)

Total watched: 92 (!) (Theater trips: 0)

Total in 2012 so far: 341

This was an enormous movie month for me. I watched more films than any other month, both new to me, re-watched and in total. The 92 films that I watched this month bring the year’s total up to a whopping 341. In the entire year of 2011 I only watched 313 – less than I’ve watched in half of 2012! Sounds like I’m having a pretty good year as a film fan.

    1. It’s the most I’ve ever watched in a month! There were probably entire years of my childhood when I watched less. Granted, some of them were shorts, but even without those the tally would be well over 50.
