Another viewing milestone: 801 out of 1001
The greatest thing about Netflix is their enormously wide selection. They have something like 60,000 titles in their catalog. This big selection of movies gives me the opportunity to do something I could never otherwise have attempted: I am trying to watch ALL of the movies in the book 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die at least once. As of today, I have seen 801 of them! In February 2006, I posted that I had seen 704 of them, so I've seen 97 in the last four months. A year ago, in May 2005, I posted that I had seen 501 of them, so I've seen 300 in the last 13 months.
Here are some of my other viewing statistics:
- I have seen all of Leonard Maltin's 100 Must-See Films of the 20th Century
- I have seen all of the The AFI 100 Years, 100 Movies
- I have seen 243 theatrical movies this year
- I have seen 77 movies from Netflix this year
- I have 166 movies in my queue, 9 of which are in the Saved section
- I have rated 2,042 titles on Netflix, and Netflix has 140 recommendations for me.
What are your statistics? How many movies have you rented from Netflix this year? How many have you rated? How many recommendations does Netflix have for you?
