Taking on 120 Films in 2010

Anyways, this year has brought similar observations, new favorites and a few of the usual cringe-fests.
This is like last year's challenge, but with more new films. For 2009 I did 100 films, finishing the last 40 or so in two months. It may not seem that much, but try doing it while having 8-hour class days and exams and family vacations. One thing that's good about 2010's challenge was I didn't have to cram the last few movies in a week. No headaches and eye strains to report.
 
This year wasn't so bad, because basically I started listing down movies from the very beginning. Several of the movies I watched on a plane in January, when I decided I'd go for 100 again. When I got home, my niece and nephew complained that it wasn't fair, because I got an early start. We decided on 120. Originally my nephew wanted it to be 150, but I remembered the headaches I got last year from watching 4-5 movies in a row on my computer. Needless to say I vetoed the 150-movies-in-2010 idea.
“New” meaning flicks & documentaries that I haven’t seen from start to finish.So it's not necessarily a list of films made in 2010, but movies I've just gotten around to watching from beginning to end.
The asterisk (*) means the film was a documentary. What I've realized is that while my favorites and the great loves of the movie-watching side of me are of the cult hits variety, I generally prefer watching documentaries when it comes to movie marathons. Idk why. maybe b/c it's less tiring for me due to the straight-to-the-facts style of documentaries. In a single viewing though, I like regular movies.
