How many movies do you think you have you seen?

Postby lafr » Mon Jul 17, 2017 2:40 pm

Got thinking about this a while back and decided to try and figure it out.

After thinking awhile, I came to the realization that pulling a number out of a hat would probably be as accurate as my thinking hard and coming up with a figure.

With this mind, I collected a number of lists consisting of movies from Canada, Australia, Great Britain and the US; these being the countries which supply the greatest number of English language movies.

I placed them in an Excel spreadsheet, sorted by nation and by year from 1911 to the present. There were a few dating back to 1896 but nothing I viewed.

The list had a total of about 32,600 movies. I say 'about' as there were a number of repeats and lines that are not actual movies but some comment. I was not about to go through the entire list to weed these out.

I was, however, willing to go through the entire list and remove movies which I had not seen. As you can imagine, it was most time consuming. Ho boy, was it ever time consuming.


I reckoned that I started watching movies on television at the age of 11, give or take. This means that I have had 50 years of viewing. I did not have the nicety of VCR's or DVR's. Watching meant being glued to the set and not saving to watch later.

I was living in Montreal when I first started seeing movies in theaters and the law for seeing anything worthwhile said you needed to be 14. I know the first movies I saw in a theater were M*A*S*H, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, Catch-22 and Ryan's Daughter.


I was going to list the totals here, but I would like to hear from anyone as to what they believe their own totals are. Once I have a fair sampling, I will give out my totals and I can see how they relate to other totals.

If you care to play, list the number you think you have viewed and the number of years you think you have been watching.


Your figures should reflect movies you have watched in their entirety.


I thank you for your time.

For the number of years I've been watching movies, I'll start counting from the point where I remember having watched movies--- around age 5. I'm certain I watched movies before that, but I have no memory of having done so.

That gives me 50 years of watching movies.

Doing some quick math based on how many movies I've watched on a regular basis, I'd estimate I've seen somewhere around 6,000 movies (+ or - 500). That includes in a theater and on TV, as well as later, home video.

I don't count multiple viewing in that estimate. If I did, the original Star Wars would count for 100+, some 40 to 50 of that in a theater.

I can say that I have seen about 90% of the movies you have listed...plus since you don't seem to like musicals, film noir or much of anything made before the 1970s..I'm sure I've got you beat. *L* Not that it matters. I was an odd kid and rather than watching Saturday morning cartoons I tuned in to whatever was playing on local tv for old movies. Lancaster, Wiessmuller, Astaire and Kelly, Wayne and Coburn... yeah.... Adventure and singing, good against evil.

Tropes... I love them.

I have seen about half of your list. But there is a lot I've seen that's not on there. For example there was a very popular series of western movies based on the novels of a German author (Karl May) or those of an Italian buddy couple (Terence Hill and Bud Spencer) or a list of Czech fairy tale movies made for kids. These were all done by the same people but still standalones. Oh yeah the famous "Tatort" movies, direct-to-TV German crime films with a completely different flavour than the American stuff... Let's see those alone make up at least 200 films not on your list. You know one every Sunday night for many many years... I estimated 200 because I have not seen all of them and they are repeated, but in a way that it's nice. Let's see... a bunch of Swedish kids movies... I bet if I put my mind to it I'll find more.
Life is very similar to boxing. Defeat is not declared when you fall down. It's declared when you can no longer get up.

Some people just want to watch the world burn... not because of the pretty colors but because after the fire, there comes rejuvination.

I have seen 15 of AFI's top 25 musicals. What else can I do?

Watch the ones that aren't "top". *L*

Looking back, I very quickly will admit that a lot of what I watched was garbage. *L* But hey, 7 and 8 year olds are not known for critical discernment.

(Also, you watched "7 Faces of Dr Lao"? Although dated and admittedly gets no points for things that are now considered stereotyping, if not down-right racist... I always loved this movie. It's one of the first things I think I ever saw with stop-motion animation.)

i saw a list on facebook, and i saw 68 of them......i'm guess there are about 30-50 more that were not on the list.

and there are movies that i've seen dozens of times.

if i added it all the hours i've spent watching movies, it would probably be over a decade
