I watched 100 Films in 2020. With only two days for the year-end, I realized I was close to reaching the 3-figure count and I will miss it. In the last 48 hours of 2020, I watched 7 films to reach the milestone. The last film ended exactly 3 minutes before midnight. I started the year with My Brother the Time Traveler (2017) and ended with Operation Christmas Drop (2020).
This was a personal goal that gave me a sense of satisfaction, that’s all. I watched many kinds of films. World Cinema transports me to places I will probably not get to visit and see the people up-close, that is what I like with cinemas made for Film Festivals. Earlier I needed to refer Wikipedia to understand what the climax I watched meant, but over the years, I have got better.
Below are a few statistics I observed on the type of films I watched last year:
Region-wise movies I watched in 2020 – 30 movies from Hollywood
Since theatres were closed for the most part of 2020, I watched over 39 films on streaming platforms and another 14 online through ICAF
Genres I watched in 2020 – Most of them were Drama and Comedy
The count represented in the charts are top picks and not all the categories were included.
For the records, I did watch 100 films in 2019 also. In 2018, I had my all-time best of about 135 films.
Enjoy cinemas. Have a happy and healthy new year 2021.
