The Race for Gold 2018

#1 Post by Batman » 01 Jan 2018, 15:32

This is a race to see who can watch the second most amount of movies in the cinema after Steel Frog 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

This was plagiarized from Sugarpuss O'Shea's previous threads. I'm only mentioning this because she's been hov'ring around the site as of late. Let's hope the hov'ring continues.

You see, Hopsi, you don't know very much about girls. The best ones aren't as good as you probably think they are and the bad ones aren't as bad. Not nearly as bad.

It is a strange feeling knowing my current pace aiming at a respectable, some might even say "grand," total of 163 would still leave me 90 films behind the 2017 tally.

if most people said that they saw 163 films in one year, I think they'd often hear "what's wrong with you?"

if you said that you saw 163 films in one year, I'd certainly ask "what's wrong with you?"
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.
