New to me viewings: 14

Re-watches: 13

Total watched this month: 27

Total in 2013 so far: 199

What an odd tally. This is the month in the history of TMP that I’ve had more re-watches than new to me viewings. (Oops! I had accidentally marked two new to me films as re-watches, so the tally was wrong when this post was originally published. The numbers are corrected now and none of the other stats were reported incorrectly.) It’s the first time in the history of TMP that I’ve watched less than 30 films in a month. I watched about 20 fewer films this month than I did last May! I’m in a slump. Hopefully I’ll get my mojo back in June.

The “new to me” list:

  • Invasion of the Star Creatures (1962)
  • Emergency Hospital (1956)
  • The Second Woman (1950)
  • The Devil’s Daughter (1939)
  • Midnight Warning (aka Eyes of Mystery, 1932)
  • So Long at the Fair (1950)
  • The Young Lovers (1949)
  • The Great Gatsby (2013)
  • Dr. Jekyll and Sister Hyde (1971)
  • Spine Tingler! The William Castle Story (2007)
  • Fast & Furious 6 (2013)
  • So Big! (1932)
  • Miss Representation (2011)
  • Hitler’s Children (2011)


Tally by decade:

1930s – 3
1940s – 2
1950s – 6
1960s – 1
1970s – 1
1980s – 1
1990s – 2
2000s – 7

(12 pre-’70, 15 post-’70: a ratio which can be blamed on a couple of great documentaries and a few cheesy re-watches with my sister)

There is no DVD collection update this month because I have the strongest willpower in the world and actually didn’t buy a single DVD in the month of May! My dad bought Jack Reacher and that’ll probably end up living on my shelves but other than that, no updates to the collection.
