My Movie Watching, January - June 2011

Since the beginning of the year, I’ve been keeping a mostly complete, mostly chronologically correct spreadsheet of all the films I’ve watched along with a score between 1 (awful) and 5 (great). We’re almost halfway through the year, so here’s how I’m doing so far:

Total films watched: 68

Number of 5s: 4

Number of 4s: 15

Number of 3s: 25

Number of 2s: 19

Number of 1s: 4

Average score: 2.94029850746269

Note: The first time I saw Tron: Legacy was in a cinema where the house lights stayed on for the first fifteen minutes and I had to go out and ask someone to shut them off. So it gets a 1. The second time was on a blu-ray in my house. It was only slightly better, so it got a 2.
