This Year In Movies

I decided at the end of this year last year that I wanted to keep track of all the movies I watched this year. I saw someone else's breakdown on their blog of how their movie watching habits had changed over the years and thought it was pretty cool. I always knew I watched a lot but never really kept track of it before. I already keep a list of the books I read so I figured why not do the same for movies. Man do I watch a lot of movies... I've included tv shows as well, when I've watched the whole season. Thank you netflix! Maybe I'll go back and make some specific comments later.
