P McG's 2011 Mid-Year Movie Recap

At the beginning of the year I decided to make a list of all of the "new" movies I saw this year. Whether they were new 2011 releases or older movies I finally got around to see, I wanted to see how many movies I could watch in a year. I decided to track the name of the movie, year of release, date of viewing, mode of viewing, director, and actors. What movie theater did I go to the most? How many Netflix movies did I watch?

Here's the List
Rabbit Hole
True Grit (2010)
Viva Las Vegas
Blue Valentine
Connie and Carla
Joan Rivers: a Piece of Work
Wendy and Lucy
About a Boy
The Town
Exit Through the Gift Shop
Capturing the Friedmans
Jesus Camp
Food, Inc.
Solitary Man
Red Riding:1974
The Fighter
All About Eve
An Affair to Remember
Animal Kingdom
Patrik 1.5
Then She Found Me
The House Bunny
Red Riding:1980
Red Riding: 1983
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Source Code
Cedar Rapids
Eat, Pray, Love
Scream 4
My Soul to Take
I Spit on Your Grave (2010)
Love Story
The Hangover 2
Dinner for Schmucks
X-Men: First Class
Sunset Boulevard
The Last House on the Left (2010)
Jackass 3
Super 8
Bram Stoker's Dracula
No Strings Attached
The Pride of the Yankees
Midnight in Paris

That's a grand total of 50 movies so far that I saw for the first time in 2011. Is that a lot? I don't know for sure. I do feel like I've seen more movies so far than I normally do by this time. The number of times I've gone to the theater seems pretty light. I may have to increase that for the second half of the year. We'll see what my budget is looking like and how much they increase ticket prices. I feel like ticket prices are always on the rise. I'm a little embarrassed by the number of classics on this list that I had never seen until now.

Random Stats:
17 in various movies theaters
13 via Netflix discs
12 via Netflix Streaming
the rest came by buying, renting, or borrowing
