What I Watched in 2014 (offered with little comment)

In 2014, I watched a total of 242 movies. Instead of simply keeping tabs on my movie consumption last year, I also tracked how I saw the film and whether or not I'd seen the movie before. As before, I also included short films/relevant special features in my tally. In some cases, the numbers and percentages surprised me while in other cases, they did not.

Seen in a theater: 76 (31%)
Seen on video: 82 (34%)
Seen on video (projected outside): 0 (0%)
Seen on blu-ray: 33 (14%)
Seen streaming: 28 (12%)
Seen at a drive-in: 0 (0%)
Seen on TCM: 18 (7%)
Seen on  MeTV: 4 (2%)
Feature length: 153 (63%)
Short: 89 (37%)
First time? 199 (83%)
Repeat viewing? 43 (17%)

I was surprised that I'd only watched 4 movies on MeTV. All of those movies would have been hosted by Svengoolie, and I could have sworn I watched more Svengoolie in 2014. In fact, I thought I'd watched more horror hosted programming period, but I either failed to note the movie in my Google doc or I just watched the horror host segments without watching the movie itself. Either scenario is likely as I've been known to do both. (In fact, I just realized I didn't add the screening of the original Godzilla that Monster Kid Radio crashed at the Hollywood Theatre in May, so I'll make that correction. I also didn't record the hours of having the Kreepy Kastle up and running on my computer.)

I know I didn't go to the drive-in at all in 2014, and I'm a little disappointed in that. Some times, it was due to a scheduling conflict (the local drive-in showed the original Godzilla during the same weekend as the World Horror Convention, for example).

I love the way you've organized this list. I may have to copy and idea or two for 2015! Great job!

The Amazing Scott helped me set up the Google doc I started using to track my movie and book consumption.
