The Whole Reason I Started This Thing

So originally my reason for starting a blog was so I would have a place to post my year end list of movies. One of my goals for the year was to watch 100 movies, and I just barely made it within the last week. I’ll have a post later with some more detailed opinions about a few of the movies, but here are just some stats.

By probably no surprise to anyone, the actor that was in the most movies I saw was Robert Downey Jr. (8 movies), but slightly surprising was the actress in the most movies was Kristen Wiig (5 movies). Of the 101 movies I saw, only 15 were ones I had seen before. 35 of them came out in 2011.

Update: Somehow I forgot about Winnie The Pooh!
