March 2011

A quarter of the year down! Christ, where does the time go…

500 films in 5 years! …sort of

March saw me reach the 500th feature film to be reviewed on this blog. Not #500, mind you (that’ll be later this year), because I’ve also reviewed a variety of films that don’t count — hardly-different alternate cuts, a couple I’d just seen before, that kind of thing. About 25 of those, as it turns out. But still, 500 reviews — that’s a lot!

Though there’s still 13 to post before there’s actually 500 available to read…

Next time on the all-new 100 Films in a Year monthly update…

So far this year I’m keeping exact pace with 2010: reaching 12 in January, 25 in February, and 38 in March. Coincidencetastic!

But April is where I stand a real chance to take a lead. Last year, for various reasons, I only managed to see three films in April, making it to a measly 41. So even four would put me ahead, but if I manage to keep up my current rate (of 12.7 films per month, to be precise) I’ll reach 51 (to round it up). Not only would I be well ahead of last year, but ahead of 2007 too — which, lest we forget, is still my best-ever final total.

Exciting times.
