June 2020’s Movies Watched List with Juicy Stats!

Happy Canada Day, everyone!

Another month, another pile of movies to pour over and examine!  After putting away a whomping 66 movies in May, I only managed to get to exactly half in June.  There is no one reason for it.  There was a lot of podcasting happening this month, Sarah and I got back into hiking, allergies played some havoc on me for a couple of days, and I played a few video games.  So, it was a combination of a few things, I guess.

I have also been re-watching a ton in my Blu-ray collection.  This limited the first time views to only 12 flicks, but it also meant no strikeouts!  I finished every movie I started and only didn’t care for one, 30 Seconds Over Tokyo.  And even that had its redeeming qualities.  The Revenant is the only home run (I can’t recommend it enough and I’m looking to add it to the collection) but that doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy a hell of a lot more.

So much of what I re-watched are films that I haven’t seen in a really long time, and I’m so happy to see that most held up over time!

Baseball time!
These are the “batting stats” compiled for the FIRST TIME watches.  I give each movie a rating out of 5.  5s are home runs, 4s and 3s are hits, 2s and 1s are pop or ground outs, an NA (did not finish) is a Strike Out.  This tells me how well of a job I’m doing at picking which movies to watch.

Good Movie Average:  11/12 –  .917 (Last month: .604)
Home Runs: 1 – The Revenant
Strikeouts: 0

  1. Man, again a lot of watching and A lot of ones I really like. I see you did the $$$ films. Yeah a summertime ritual for me and the gal. A Jack festival also. Loved Robert Ryan’s performance in ‘Crossfire’. Also a William Holden run. Good stuff Mars. Have you seen a film called ‘Mandy’? New Nick Cage. I’m using you as my screener on this one.
