May Movies Round-Up

First, I am truly sorry for the delay between my last post and this one. When I was doing my April round-up post I thought I had messed something up with my stats and I wanted to overhaul a few things on my spreadsheet before I did May and time just slipped past me. Before I realized it, I was through writing my May reviews and hadn’t even looked at my stats-tracking sheets.

However, now I’ve got things all worked out and while I will need to go back through my previous monthly round-ups to make sure they are correct (and updated) I can finally get May done! One thing I have retroactively added to every review so far are links to Rotten Tomatoes and IMDB for every movie where available. This is something I wanted to do from the start so I’m glad I finally did it.

Here are the films I watched in May:

  1. Midnight in Paris
  2. Melancholia
  3. Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop
  4. A Trip to the Moon
  5. Cashback
  6. The Wolf Man [1941]
  7. The Avengers
  8. West Side Story
  9. Jaws
  10. Psycho
  11. Ides of March
  12. Goodfellas
  13. Tokyo Story
  14. The Godfather Part II
  15. Léon Morin, Priest
  16. Martha Marcy May Marlene
  17. White Dog
  18. RoboCop
  19. Tyrannosaur
  20. Them [2006]
  21. My Week With Marilyn
  22. The Prestige
  23. Network
  24. The Matrix

Some May Statistics:

Movies watched / Days in the month = 24/31 = ~77%
My average movie rating = 4.000 out of 5 (8/10)
Average IMDB rating = ~7.8

First time viewings = 16

Method of watching:

  • Blu-Ray = 5
  • DVD = 5
  • Netflix (DVD rental) = 4
  • Netflix Instant Watch = 8
  • Theater = 1
  • Hulu Plus = 1

Year to Date Statistics:

Movies watched / Days elapsed = 133/152 = ~87.5%
Percentage of my goal complete = 133/300 = ~44.3%
Percentage of year complete = 152/366 = ~41.5%
Percentage ahead = ~2.8%
Movies remaining vs. days remaining = 167 vs. 214
My average movie rating = ~3.947 out of 5 (7.894/10)
Average IMDB rating = ~7.3
Average Rotten Tomatoes rating = ~77%
First time viewings = 87

Method of watching:

So I have 167 movies left to meet my goal of watching 300 movies in 2012 and I have 214 days left (as of June 1st). I think I can do it!

For those of you that follow my blog, thank you so very much. I continue to enjoy doing this immensely and it never seems like a chore. The problem now is finding time to do it while also keeping up with all of your blogs!

  1. A lot of my favorites are here, including The Godfather Part II, Jaws, Goodfellas, Tokyo Story, Network, and Psycho. Nice round up, I’m trying to do something similar for this summer.

  2. Sounds like a great month in movies. I’ve been meaning to re-watch “The Wolf Man” in my Netflix queue. Keep up the good work.

  3. Great post, Andy! Seeing that list, I can tell May was a fantastic month for you! Lots of great titles and many classics. As I’ve said before, I love that you add the stats.
