Everything I've seen in the first half of 2012

Last November I started tracking every film I see by maintaining a list on the side of this blog. I note the date (in cases of watching a movie in parts over two days I use the date I finished), the venue, and whether I'd seen the movie before.

I'd always had a fairly accurate record of films I'd seen in cinemas in a given year, but never really knew how many I saw when factoring in video and TV. Now I'm getting a sense of just how much time I spend watching movies.

Looking over the first six months of the year I find I've watched 108 feature length films, 69 of which I saw for the first time. I saw 31 films in the cinema including 2 silent films with live music accompaniment. I also saw 25 short films, many of which were part of the Academy Awards nominated short films presentations.

There have been only 5 feature films I've not written reviews for, although at least one of those is on the way. And 8 reviews have not yet been made public, awaiting publication at a future date.

It's also worth pointing out that this does not include television viewing or TV series. I also watched the 13 episode "Firefly" TV series for the first time; HBO's Band of Brothers again; and the recently concluded 13 episode 5th season of "Mad Men."

So here's the full list of everything I've watched since January 1 this year. A star indicates a film I'd seen previously.
