The June 100 ...or What I Watched in June '13

Any regular readers will notice that I've been missing from here for an entire month, which was due to a number of things. First of all I moved out of my Uni house, which was a very long process which involved numerous 100 mile trips between Uni in Lancashire and my home in Shropshire. Then there is the fact that immediately after moving home I worked a total of 114.5 hours over 14 days and on top of this I took on a challenge set by Letterboxd community member Cinebro, The June 100.

The June 100 was a challenge to watch 100 films over the thirty days of June, with only two rules: none of the films could be re-watches and each film had to be over an hour in length. I won't lie, continuing this challenge after taking on so many shifts at work left me a little exhausted, but on Sunday the 30th I completed the challenge with 22 minutes of June remaining.

Here's my breakdown of this mammoth month of films.

100 films in total.
0 of these films were re-watches.

8 were foreign language.
2 were foreign, but dubbed.
5 were documentaries
1 was a mockumentary

12 received a 5-star rating.
20 received a 1-star rating.

Best Film of the month: Once
Worst Film of the month: Movie 43
Most Surprising: Moonlight Mile
Most Disappointing: Don't Look Now

Best part of a terrible film: Azrael (The Smurfs)
Worst part of a great film: Living with the knowledge that it'll be months before I finally see the third film in the series (Before Sunrise and Before Sunset)

Let me know what the best and worst things are you've watched this month and be sure to leave me recommendations for July!

  1. That's really unfortunate that you saw Movie 43. The only movie that I gave a 0/10 to on my site. I STILL havent recovered the lost brain cells.
