Summer of Film – 2013

This summer I decided to devour as much cinema as I could before heading back to school (I moved back in today, actually). I kept a record of all of the films I watched over the summer; sure, I could have done other things with my time, but I decided not to. I was able to watch 150 films this summer, which is many more than I ever expected to watch. I watched films from the 1920s to 2013. Some were fantastic, some were good, some weren’t anything special, and some were even down right uninteresting and/or terrible.

Out of these 150 films, I had already seen 39 of them; so, as you can see, I saw quite a few films that I had never seen before. All in all, I highly enjoyed most of them, and it was a fun little “experiment” to do, but I probably won’t ever have enough time to watch so many films in such a small period of time.
