Movies I Watched in January 2015

Movies I Watched in January 2015

I’ve decided to take an analytical look at the movies I watch in 2015. This means that I am not just keeping track of the movies, but how I watch them (services and technology), whether or not they were new to me, when they were released and what genres they were in.

The Movies

First, here is the raw list of movies:

Medium

Netflix was the leading medium – by 1. It’s worth noting that 2 of the Prime movies were watched offline (Amazon allows Prime members to download a portion of the Prime library free of charge) whereas one was watched both on and offline. Finally, both Google Play movies were rented using a free credit I had received.

Media Device

Screen

The Fire HDX does double duty as both a media device and a screen. I don’t feel the need to note a specific TV (should I?).

New/Old

I thought it would be interesting to see how many of the movies I watch that I can remember watching before. This month it was all new! I’m not counting movies I just watched portions of. I need to have watched most of it and generally paid attention.

Year Released

Pretty self-explanatory. This is the year released, according to IMDb.

 

Genre

This is also according to IMDb. Whatever they list as the genre is what I write down, and this represents the number of times a genre has been listed. For example: “Action/Fantasy/Sci-Fi” counts as 1 for each of those three genres. That’s why this adds up to more than 13.

If you can think of anything else I should track, please let me know before I get too deep into this!
