It is the support that matters I suppose.matthewscott8 wrote: ↑May 2nd, 2020, 3:59 pmI did my ballot in a huge rush because I was right on the deadline. When I do that I generally miss stuff, mainly films I didn't really like at all. I double checked against my IMDB rating history using formulas and found another 60 I didn't vote for. Where I thought they would make a difference, I did write-ins to Angel, plus correcting 2 mistakes which was embarassing. I have been pretty useless this round of DtC. But I have at least managed to support all the films I love. Ended up having seen 201, which was a bit more respectable. I haven't the energy to tank films in like some others here. The volume that the likes of you and PdA and many of the others get through I can't manage. Some of it is I am very reflective so if I watch a good one I'll want to let it sink in for a couple of days. I stopped drinking on 1 January so that may help me see more stuff, can stay awake longer in the evenings. April was certainly the best month for me in many years. I do a lot more social stuff over the last couple of years too. Ideally I would socialise with film nuts, but it's pretty damned hard to find a film bro. My twin used to watch lot of films with me 15 years ago but he has become a bit frightened of it. He's compared arthouse movies to heroin, and I can't disagree! My watching usually goes to zero in the summer, certainly if there are Olympics or World Cup Football or Tour de France on TV, so coronavirus will help me get back on track. My ability to source is bad currently as someone murdered surrealmoviez.
I filled my ballot out in a new way this year: Had the ICM list on one half of my screen and the spreadsheet on the other. I'll never go back to the old/standard way I again. So much time was saved. In the past I would open 500+ IMDb titles to confirm whether or not I had seen them.
