Thank you for your Original Content, /u/StaplesLewis!
Here is some important information about this post:
Kinda odd seeing the DVD format being used more than the streaming services on the graph in this day and age.
- Data is from Letterboxd app
- Used Google Sheets and Tableau
- Data logged October 6, 2017 - October 6, 2018. I know it's random but that's when I started using Letterboxd.
For interactive graph and some bonus visualizations, click here to view on Tableau.
Ever since I started recording this data, I knew I would want to present it visually. However when I started actually deciding what to display, I was inspired by this post. It's 182 movies, total. In June, I moved into a new apartment and had neither a tv nor internet access for most of the month. The "Other" category includes a few movies watched on sketchy streaming sites, one or two purchased from iTunes, one that was airing on TV, and several on my long flights from Chicago to London and back (in April). I did have Moviepass for most of this time period, although I switched to AMC A-List in August or September. I own around 150 DVDs and I also check out DVDs from the library quite often (I was going to chart library vs. owned DVDs, but I haven't done that yet). I just bought a BluRay Player in July, so there are a few BluRays lumped in with the DVDs. I am a sucker for Netflix Original films...
I'm not happy with the "genres" chart, mainly because I feel I overgeneralized when assigning genres. I ought to do one with a bit more specificity.
 Added BluRay comments
TIL the movie "Paranormal Activity" had a budget of only $15,000 but made $194 million. During the screening, people were walking out that one studio executive thought the film was bombing. They later learned that the viewers were actually leaving because they were too frightened.
