I haven't changed all that much in the last year:

Year of release: 1971
Length: 90 minutes
# official top lists: 0
Favorited: 5
Disliked: 3
Alphabetically: Last Action Hero (1993)
# Checks: The Valley of Gwangi (176 checks) -1969

Looks like I've been watching more recent movies this year, and possibly more popular ones as well.
It seems I forgot to update this the last couple of years. At any rate, here's where I am now:

Year of release: 1973
Length: 90 minutes
# official top lists: 0
Favorited: 6
Disliked: 4
Alphabetically: The Last Casino - 2004
# Checks: Priklyucheniya Sherloka Kholmsa i doktora Vatsona: Korol shantazha (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson: The King of Blackmail) (205 checks) -1980

I guess the year trending later makes sense (since we're advancing in time). As far as the number of checks is concerned, either ICM is getting more popular or I've been indulging in a lot of mainstream trash these last few years. :D
Not too much of a change for me this year (18215 checks total):

Year of release: 1974
Length: 90 minutes
# official top lists: 0
Favorited: 7
Disliked: 4
Alphabetically: L'arrière pays - 1998
# Checks: An Inspector Calls (215 checks) -1954

The stability on the alphabetical result is a little surprising: Both L'assassin habite... au 21 and Last Action Hero are on the same page as L'arrière pays, and The Last Casino is just a few titles into the next page! All four are within 22 titles of each other.

You really should watch more movies starting with Z, leopardi. They are absolutely amazing! We should do a poll about movies starting with Z to celebrate their awesomeness.

I'd be afraid to find out just how many titles in my list would involve zombies if we did that poll. :D
