I got my 2018 year-end email from Letterboxd today-

Films Logged: 395
Most Watched Actor: Stan Laurel
Most Watched Director: Alfred Hitchcock

Proving once again that I'm at the forefront of modern cinema. :D

I'm curious to know what everyone else's stats were, so please share. :up:

Got mine too...

Films logged: 186
Most watched actor: Samuel L. Jackson
Most watched director: Vincente Minnelli (Cabin in the Sky, Meet Me in St. Louis, An American in Paris)

The last one is the one that surprised me. Not because of him, because I know I saw 3 of his films during the Musical course I did on summer, but I'm surprised I didn't repeat other directors.

I didn't get mine. Dang. Curious about my rundown though I unfortunately only started logging halfway through the year and I only log new watches. Trying to log everything I've seen seems a daunting task.

Anywho, here's my letterboxd:

Ha! Yes, if I had to predict what yours would be, that's probably what I would've guessed. Funny.

Breaking down my stats:
The 395 films includes lots of two-reelers and 5-minute cartoons, so it's not as impressive as it might initially seem.
I watched 11 Laurel & Hardy shorts last month which is how Stanley got the top spot.
And I got a Hitchcock box set for my birthday so that explains that.

I think my leaders last year were Lon Chaney Jr/Spielberg

I could’ve sworn I posted a link to my profile here. Ah well. Here it is:
https://boxd.it/anSV

My yearly rushes said I logged 148 films. Alec Baldwin was my most watched actor (for Mission Impossible, his cameos in A Star is Born and BlacKkKlansman, and a joke post I made about The Boss Baby being an Oscar nominee), and Kurosawa is my most watched director.

I don't know what it was called. The one where they have to clean up after a party before Hardy's wife gets home. I basically only watched it after John C. Reilly on Colbert recommended those unfamiliar with them check out this particular short. I thought to myself "who hasn't seen a Laurel and Hardy before".Then quickly realized after checking my memory bank, that I hadn't. I had just been assuming all of these years because they are such ubiquitous in pop culture.

I liked it a good deal and have every intention of checking out more. I generally like these sorts of old comedy teams, so I'm generally a receptive audience.

Sounds like Helpmates,
where cleaning the house results in no house?
That's a good one to start with. I hope the Stan & Ollie film inspires people to check them out. I'd especially like to see their 20s films get a nice Blu Ray release.

Is the $49 patron worth it for the extras. I have a free basic profile but I can't help but admit it's the first place I'm in a hurry to get to after I've finished watching something to add data. It's very much replaced IMDb as the place I keep track of my movie watching experience

It is if there's any beta features you see that you really want to try out; otherwise, just wait for them to iron the kinks out, save the money, and just settle for a Pro account, like I did.

Right, I wasn't sure if there was a massive difference that required the extra moolah.

Last year they offered a significant discount on a Pro account so I signed up. Ultimately I could live without it but I have enough fun browsing my "stats" that I'll probably re-up when my discount period expires. (Regular price is less than $2/per month.) If you're the type of nerd (like me) that enjoys all of the "most-watched directors" lists and so on, I'd recommend the Pro.

I don't write reviews and I am not at all active on social media, so I haven't found a reason to go Patron.

It's pretty surprising, when you sift through the categories, how early some rather obscure movies come up so early.

Also, it takes a hot minute to fill out what movies you've seen after 9 years, geez louise.

I have no Pro account, but looking at my diary and profile, I've seen 102 films so far during the first half of 2020.

The best first-time watch of 2020 so far has been Sweet Smell of Success.

So do you just check movies you watched on that site? I don't see anything else to do with it, but maybe it's because I don't have a paying account.
