Letterboxd is a personal database to keep track of what movies you've watched, want to watch, and their ratings 🎥
Now, we're looking at my own data. Everything goes from 2016 - 2020, even though some movies are dated for the years they were released. I am keeping the date watched and the year released in the data. I've hidden the Letterboxd URLs to the specific movie pages - It's not necessary - and my own username is not shown.
Spoiler alert: There are movies that are highly acclaimed that...I do not like! Feel free to link to this post and go "How does she like 'Valerian and The City of A Thousand Planets' more than 'Up'?"
- 15 movies are rated 5 (perfect).
- 25 movies are rated as 4 (Very good)
- 33 movies are rated 3.5 (fine enough)
- 35 movies are rated 3
- 24 are rated 2.5 (I've seen worse, but barely.)
- 9 movies are rated 2 (I'd watch if I was bored. Very bored.)
- 11 movies are rated 1.5 (Goodness me)
- 3 movies are rated 1
- 1 Lone little movie is rated 0.5
Year and Quarter Watched
It's easiest to point out for 2020; I'm not sure I watched any older movies in 2020 (besides 1), so I didn't catalog them on the website.
For the curious, July is "The Personal History of David Copperfield". If 2020 had not been 2020, June would have included A24's "The Green Knight", Disney's "Soul", and Universal's "Candyman".
Q1 -Jan to (and including) March.
Q2 - April to (and including) June
Q3 - July to (and including) September
Q4 - is October to December
I notice that does not include rewatches of movies. I know I logged a rewatch that would be in Q1 of 2020.
If you can guess which movie it is (You get one shot at it), post on this LinkedIn post, I'll send you the code to a 5$ gift card to either Starbucks or Dunkin. Your choice!
Look at this graph, and in Q1. You have a 1 in 90 chance of getting it!
Contest ends November 28th, 2020. If more than one person guesses correctly, everyone goes into a random number generator.
Average Ratings Per Year (The movie came out)
I had to adjust this a bit because the information was spread out over 120 years (The oldest movie was "A Trip To The Moon"), so I adjusted the axis to start at 1960 and go to 2021 for visual clarity.
This is a pro-Wuxia house.
Yep, that'll skew it.
Amount of Movies Watched Per Quarter Over 174 Movies
This is not the Quarter they were released, but the Quarter they were watched in, no matter the year.
I expect Q4 to rise by 1, with the release of "Soul" on Disney+. If "Raya And The Last Dragon" came out as scheduled on Thanksgiving, it would have been added also.
I'm working on a bit more data manipulation - I want to learn how to sort by # of 5 ratings per watch year, or how many 3.5 ratings were in Q2 of 2019?
Don't forget about the competition and the prize 😉 Ends December 20th, 2020. Or until someone gets it.
