I didn't count Sing, Unburied, Sing. I listened to the whole book on audiobook, and I'd be damned if I could tell you one thing that happened in it. I don't know if I was too distracted, or if I couldn't absorb the reader's voice or what. I just can't count that as a book read.

I just counted and I've already watched 56 movies this year. That's just stuff I haven't seen before. If I were counting stuff I've already seen, I'd say add another 15-20 or so.

I'd recommend giving Sing, Unburied, Sing another shot. It's a heartbreaking story and beautifully told. One of my favorites in a while.

The thread isn't 50 different movies in one year, Lenny. If I watch The Last Jedi 50 times, that still counts.

It's clear we're all writing our own rules for this thing, but yeah, I thought it was "new to us" things.

Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.... these movies have to be seen for the first time ever to count? Not just with in the year? I get not counting the same movie twice in one year, but all brand new, ever seen, films? That's fucking stupid.
