Letterboxd just sent me a 'my year in review' email.
258 films watched, 446 hours of film watched.
Most watched director: Martin Scorsese (no surprise)
Most watched actor: Bess Flowers? Did NOT see that coming.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bess_Flowers

I also got this email, but it's not really reliable since I only logged movies I saw in theaters for most of the year (I started logging everything I watched toward the end of the year).  This year I'm logging every movie I watch for the first time, ignoring any re-watches, so the data will be more useful to me when I get my recap next year.

As it stands, my most watched actor of 2015 is Domhnall Gleeson, which is no surprise since he was in everything in 2015.  Most watched director is Robert Zemeckis, because I saw the Back to the Future marathon in theaters and I also saw The Walk.  94 films logged, 179 hours.

The easy solution, if you want it, is to log everything, so that you get accurate stats/records, and start a list which is only your first time watches.

Yeah, I might do that.  I just started using it last year, so I'm still kind of figuring it out.

I just went pro today. I have logged every film I've seen since I signed up in 2013, and I just love stats! :P

I looked back at 2014's stats, and it lists my most watched actor as Stan Lee and I vomited a little bit.
FINE

What are the benefits of Pro?

More stats - (You get year in review stats for every year you've logged more than ten films, and the stats include a lot more than the email did)

Let's you import activity from IMDB (which I don't really use)

"Advanced options including list cloning, sort before save and activity filtering."

I can post some screen shots of the stats stuff if you like.

Aside from that, I got it to encourage me to use it more. Post reviews, and read reviews. A thing I always mean to do but don't.
FINE

I started late in 2015 so my stats were minimal...

24 Films Logged

45 Hours Watched

Sharmila Tagore was my Most Watched Actor - so it makes sense that Satyajit Ray was my Most Watched Director.

I'm looking forward to seeing how this looks with a full season under my belt.



Edit - and I had no idea who Bess Flowers was until you posted that link. Some film freak I am. :)

Never heard of Letterbox'd, but it sounds like something that would be right up my alley. Right now I'm logging all my movies manually in a Word document (and only theatrical movies at that).

Is it only web based? Do they have an app?

They have an app. I've downloaded it, but not opened it yet.

What's this now?

Letterboxd is really fantastic, and it's very satifying to look back at your year.

Everyone sign up and let us know your username. Maybe I'll start a thread. (Maybe I already did ages ago?)

This is me: http://letterboxd.com/tedprior/

They have an app. I've downloaded it, but not opened it yet.

Does it have a different name? I couldn't find anything when I searched the Play store.

If I upgrade to Pro later, does that update all stats for stuff I'm entering now?

Actually, yeah, a separate thread would probably be a good idea.
