I got to 371, with 317 being films I' hadn't seen before. That come out to about 85% new, and my secondary goal was at least 80% new, so I'm pretty happy with where I ended up.

 

My list is on Letterboxd here: http://boxd.it/Sk5Y

I am inspired, guys! I'm going to see what I can do this year. I doubt I'll get anywhere close, but we'll see.

 

Also, I just joined Letterboxd. Thanks, Fister :)

I still have yet to complete the 365 challenge but c'est la vie. I got 144 new this year. But I did finish my 52 films by women challenge! 5 of those ended up being in my top 20 for 2016!

 

I'm also on letterboxd but I'm determining whether I want y'all stalking me as well :P

Now I begin my 2017 TV show binge to make up for the shows I missed over the last year and shows I've always wanted to watch or finish. So far, two days in and I've finished Westworld which is so many levels of amazing it makes me even angrier at shitty TV adaptations of movies like Lethal Weapon and Rush Hour.

Ohhh that's a nice list to skim through for unseen flicks.

I noticed Pontypool on the list. Was that a new one for you? How did you like it?

Yeah it was a new one for me, and I thought it was pretty good. To be honest I got it mixed up with another zombie horror movie involving a radio station called Dead Air which starred Bill Moseley as a shock jock dealing with an unknown outbreak.

I just tracked my films I watched last year and got 460 films in total and 194 I had never seen before. This year I am going for 365 films I have never seen before, 25 days in so far and I have 39 new films watched

Wow. I did it. 557 movies. Which is an ass ton of movies. Unfortunately, though, I still didn't hit two of my benchmarks. I only ended up watching 358 "new" movies, so I fell 7 short for one new movie for every day. That also only put me at 64% new movies watched.

 

However, I did enjoy the experiment - especially as I used it as an opportunity to watch a bunch of classics I'd never seen. Even going through this list now brings back a lot of fun memories and conversations I've had. I think I'm addicted to this now, and I will definitely be giving it another go in 2018 - albeit at a much more leisurely pace :)/>

 

My biggest joy this year was discovering the "Before..." series. My biggest disappointment was probably watching MASH for the first time. My favorite documentary was I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story.

 

For anyone interested, here's the complete list: https://letterboxd.com/cameronh/list/dlm-challenge-2017/

I hadn't heard of the Doug Loves Movies challenge before this year but I had always wanted to average a movie a day before. I think I'd normally top out in the mid 200s somewhere. This year I logged 432 movies on letterboxd. I count 45 movies I had seen before for a total of 387 movies. I also watched 130 movies from 2017.

 

My favorite discoveries (of old movies) were The Human Condition trilogy, A Face In The Crowd and the works of Powell & Pressburger. My biggest disappointment (for an old movie) was probably Phantom India.

I've started my DLM challenge for this year, since I spent 2017 catching up on TV shows and binging ones I wanted to see but couldn't because of my 2016 DLM challenge. So far two new ones in the can, and both fairly bad (Galaxina and Bad Kids of Crestview Academy).
