Tally ho!

Another Tally Year has come and past. If you recall from previous posts, a Tally Year takes place between the last Saturdays in July. The first film of the new Tally Year is the one watched on that Saturday.

Some reminders! This list is just for the Michigan-based Smith-ka-teers (The Ballot Bimbo, The Ballot Ninja, The Earl, and the Guru). This list is so large because it encompasses the latter 5/12 of the "26 Movies in 52 Weeks" project, and the early 7/12 of the "Let's Watch Movies For Smithee Birthdays" project. It encompasses movies watched for 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.

Two of these movies were abandoned mid-way. No, I'm not telling you which two. I'm counting them as half-movies each.

August had the most movies watched, and April the fewest. On to the recounting! These are in order watched, in case you're curious.

That calendar month had a staggering 11 bad movies watched. We watched four movies after the end of the Tally Year (but before the end of July). This means, statistically, that next Tally Year we'll watch 300 complete movies, and abandon 8. Or perhaps I just like extrapolating a little too much....

The final numbers for July 26, 2008 through July 24, 2009? 75 full films, and two halves. As opposed to 49.5 last Tally Year, and 61.5 the Tally Year before that.

I do not anticipate that we will best this number for some time, possibly ever. But that's okay.


You are truly amazing!

We need to do a movie theme night one day soon!

PS: Want Oreo Bastards!
So many potential themes, and so many movies....
Crappy sea movies + seafood + hush puppies (see what I did there? I got my puppies in there!) = yum
The classic "movies and food Patti likes" theme night!
