This isn’t my first foray into a yearly quest, no sir.
2010 – Quest for 75
It’s the one that started them all. I thought it would be difficult to see 75 different movies that I had never seen before. I surpassed it. By quite a bit.
2011 – Drive for 66
I thought I would dial-back my goal and only go for 66, despite getting quite a bit more than that the year prior, but I ended up seeing even more than I did in 2010.
2012 – Film Quest ’12
I decided that I should start trying to see more older movies, so I set a goal to not only see a lot of movies I hadn’t before, but to make a considerable percentage of them be at least 20 years old.
2013 – Film Quest 2013
My highest output to date, I’m still impressed by the number of films I saw that year for the first time.
2014 – Film Quest 2014
My totals dropped a bit from the prior year, but I still hit a higher number in 2014 than in a few of the other years.
2015 – Film Quest 2015
I started trying to make a focused effort to see movies not only from decades past, but also in certain film series’. It happens more in later years, but I believe this is where it started.
2016 – Film Quest 2016
Whoa, this was last year!
2017 – Film Quest 17
And here we are, at current!
