This is a race to see who can watch the second most amount of movies in the cinema after Steel Frog in 2019. The current Gold Standard is 275 set by Esseff himself in 2018.

Rules (subject to change):
1. Only feature-length films seen in a theater can be counted (exception: a screening of multiple short films can be counted as one film)
2. Release year doesn't matter - old films, new films, they all count
3. Please post the movie title and the month you saw the movie (if different from the month of your post). When applicable, please specify if it was a repeat viewing (see #4 below), a sneak-in (see #5 below), and/or if you saw the 3D or IMAX version of the film. If you don't state otherwise, I'll assume it's not a repeat viewing or a sneak-in, and it was the regular, non-3D, non-IMAX version. You don't have to post any of the movie-specific details like run time, genre, etc. - I'll keep track of all that in my spreadsheet. But, feel free to add extra info if you prefer. As long as the info I need is included in the post, I have no preference on how the post is formatted. If you would like to keep a list of all your movies for the year, please maintain that list in one post, and include only updates in subsequent posts. It helps keep the thread tidy, and makes recording updates easier for me. Thanks!
4. A viewing counts as a repeat for any movie that you have already seen in the theater. If you have previously seen the movie on DVD, VHS, and/or TV, but this is the first time you've seen it in a theater, then that is not considered a repeat.
5. A film counts as a sneak-in if you sneak into the screening without paying for it. The following situations do not count as a sneak-in: paying for a cheaper ticket, but instead going to a more expensive screening; paying for 2D, but instead going to the 3D version; going to a screening using a festival pass, unlimited pass, or gift card; buying a ticket at the student price even though you graduated college years ago...basically this is meant to be a measure of sneakiness, not frugality.
6. Anyone can enter the race at any time. No purchase necessary.

Previous races:
2009
2010
2011
2012
2013
2014
2015
2016
2017
2018

This was plagiarized from a certain someone's previous threads. If she'd like to come and claim her birthright, she's more than welcome.

Because this is a deeply important issue, I'd like to call your attention to the 2009 link in your post. As the godfather of this, my preferred pronoun is he.

My apologies. Even though I know you're a he, I like to think of you as a she because you've got a purdy mouth.

That's nothing. You should hear me squeal like a pig.

January continues to be the toughest month in my world. I think. Lemme do some research.

No. That's not true. Not by a long shot.

2008-2018 by month Avg # of films
January 17.0
February 15.4
March 17.0
April 17.9
May 16.9
June 14.6
July 16.9
August 17.5
September 19.3
October 19.9
November 19.9
December 16.0


Perhaps it just seems that way after loading the back end of the year with film ... but June is clearly my most problematic month of theater hopping.
