Everything I've seen in the first half of 2013

In the first six months of 2013, I saw far fewer films than the same period last year. I managed just 87 feature films and 20 short films (15 of them the Oscar contenders in three categories). Of the features I saw from January through June, 3 of them (Django Unchained; Zero Dark Thirty; Holy Motors) were repeat viewings within the six months and 5 were DVD commentary tracks on 4 different films. So realistically speaking, that's only 80 different films I watched compared to more than 100 last year.

46 of the films I watched for the first time and 24 of those I saw in the cinema (including the silent classic Safety Last with live music accompaniment).

From the short films I saw 18 in the cinema and 17 were films I'd never seen before.

I've got 56 new reviews posted for films I saw during the first half of the year.

Out of the 80 different feature films I saw, I did not post reviews for 14 of them. Two are written and one will be written.

There were 2 in-flight movies, which I should hardly count because it's a tiny little screen, the sound is horrible, and they're edited for content. That's why I won't provide reviews on those.
