December 2020’s Movie Watch List with Juicy Stats

And there we have it!  A full year of doing these lists!  This happens so rarely for me, so I’m not sure but… I feel like I committed to doing something, then followed through with it.  Crazy to think of, eh?!?

I’ll work on the year end stats for tomorrow, but we still have one more month to wrap up before that!  So…

The List

  • An asterisk (*) indicates a first time viewing.

Baseball time!
These are the “batting stats” compiled for the FIRST TIME watches.  I give each movie a rating out of 5.  4.5 and up are home runs, 4s to 2.5s are hits, 2 and lower are field outs, an 0.5 (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:  20/25 – .800 even  (Last month: .750)
Home Runs: 1 – Operation Condor: Armour of God Part II
Strikeouts: 0, but Rollerball came close as several scenes were skipped. 

Awards
The Movie More People Should See: The Forbidden Kingdom
Most Fun First Time Watch: Operation Condor: Armour of God Part II
Most Fun Re-watch: The Big Lebowski
Most Forgettable: Silver Linings Playbook
Movie That Most Lived Up to How I remembered it: Big
Not As Good As I Remembered: All Dogs Go To Heaven
The movie I can finally cross off the Bucket-list: All The King’s Men
Most surprising performance: Cary Grant, The Bishop’s Wife
Most Pleasant Surprise: Darkman
Most Disappointing Movie:  Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
Worst Movie: Rollerball
Best Movie: Operation Condor: Armour of God Part II

  1. Between doing 15 Youtube streams, being on Twitter, Facecrack, reading our blogs, buying a shit ton of music and watching movies do you guys ever sleep?
    Back before Christmas we have a guy who comes and sells computers/Tv’s etc and they just deduct bi weekly off of our cheques for 2 years. Sure I pay a little more but really it’s already bought and paid for really. Anyhoo we bought ourselves an upgrade in TV so we got a 65 Inch Plasma 4K TV as we were still using our TV that was 10 years old..
    Never knew until we got that sucker that the remote’s now comes with an actual Amazon Prime button, Netflix button.. What the hell?? lol
    Been watching some documentaries on Prime. We just finished watching ‘The Last Narcos’ really good.
    Amazing the amount of stuff you have watched.

    1. The Last Narcos is on my list to watch! See, you’ve already seen something I haven’t, lol And I think my TV is only 60 inches. So you already have a better screen!

      I think I’m going to do a post on my movie watching tips and tricks.

  2. How do you have time for movies? I’m preoccupied with youtube and CDs nowadays that I hardly watch movies lol! I can’t believe you watched Silver Linings Playbook too (didn’t think it was your genre), though you gave it a low rating and I can’t say anything because I’ve never seen the movie, but yeah!

    1. I watch all kinds of movies! Musicals are the only ones I’ll generally avoid. Sarah and I make the time to watch a movie every evening. It is our thing and they just add up. Do it once a day and you have seen 31 movies in 31 days. Maybe I should do a post with my tips for watching more movies…

  3. Dang, another stellar list of movies watched. I have never heard of Operation Condor: Armour of God Part II, I might have to check that one out. Rollerball…yeah I’ll skip that even before you said it was the worst one.
