I signed up for Letterboxd way back in 2015. Yes, really! Although I didn’t actually start using it properly until the end of 2019 and therefore 2020 was the first full year that I logged every single film that I watched. Albeit not as many Cinema films as I would have liked, which leads me on to saying during the lockdown/furlough stage I spent a lot of time logging in the diary all of the films I had seen at the Cinema dating back to 2003 (yes, I still have my Lord of the Rings: Return of the King ticket). This obviously took a few weeks as I also logged the films I have review on here as well. So as you imagine a lot of time was taken to do this. It gives some amazing all-time stats though.
Here we can take a look at my 2020 stats and I am sure no one will be surprised with my most watched films either!
Awakenings is an in-depth look into the victims of an encephalitis epidemic which occurred many years before have been unresponsive ever since. With no hope for them until Dr. Malcolm Sayer began to notice responses or reflexes and campaigns to trial a new drug.
Rest in peace Penny Marshall who passed away at the age of 75. She has been a truly outstanding role model for female directors having directed the following films Jumpin’ Jack Flash (a personal favourite of mine), Big, Awakenings, A League of Their Own, The Preacher’s Wife, Riding in Cars with Boys. All truly outstanding films! Also not forgetting her amazing cameo performance in Hocus Pocus! She was the first female director to direct a film that grossed over 100 million dollars in the US with Big!
