My Year of Movies: Visualized

by     Posted 2 years, 211 days ago

2011-movie-journal-collage-slice-01

This past week, I’ve posted five lists looking back at the movies and movie ads of 2011.  I didn’t really have to dig through a year’s worth of articles because I kept a list of everything I found noteworthy.  This year, I also kept a movie journal and made a record of every time I watched a feature-length film.  Then I took an image or a slice of an image from each movie and put them into a collage.  I feel pretty proud to have stuck with this project for 365 days (or if you want to be absolutely obnoxious about it, 363 days), and I’d like to share it with all of you.

After the jump, you’ll find two different collages and then the list of 368 movies I saw (not 368 different movies because I watched some flicks twice; I probably watched around 350 different films).  I hope you like it.

[Because the collages count viewings and not different movies, some films have more than one image]

Here’s the really long slice-version of the collage:

    That’s pretty cool, man.

  • Flyersfan20

    I’m not the biggest Goldberg fan but this is pretty nice.

    • fravit

      Why did you have to preface your comment with that? Can’t a compliment just be a compliment sometimes?

      And why is every single Mattt Goldberg article full of negative comments, regardless the actual content of that article?

      • WyldeMan

        That’s an easy one, because every single Matt Goldberg article is pure negativity. He’s the most negative person on the entire internet.

      • Mrs Goldberg

        “And why is every single Mattt Goldberg article full of negative comments, regardless the actual content of that article?”

        Because, Matt Goldberg is a pretentious prick…are you new here?

      • Flyersfan20

        I gave him a compliment, I’m not particularly a fan of his way of writing his articles but I thought what he did was cool, and I think I let that be known in my original comment. I really didn’t think what I said was bad but my bad, I guess.

      • Fravit

        Then I guess what I don’t understand is why you continue to visit this site, read his articles and post comments if you know they are going to make you angry.

      • Flyersfan20

        I visit this site because it’s a good movie site, one of the best, in my opinion of course. I can count on one hand how many comments I’ve left on this site [not including these], I’m not a big comment person to be honest with you. I read the articles by Goldberg if they interest me. The Dark Knight Rises for example, interests me. If he writes an article on it because of news that just came out, I’ll read it because it’s about The Dark Knight Rises, not because Matt Goldberg wrote the article. I read this article even though I’m not Matt’s biggest fan because I thought it would be cool to see which movies he has seen and to see the collage he made, which by my earlier comment you can tell I do like it. I apologize for starting something [if this is indeed something] when it wasn’t my attention.

      • fravit

        No need to apologize.

  • Jesus Christ

    I’m not a fan of Goldberg because he insists on using “Hit The Jump” or “After The Jump” or a variation abusing the term “Jump”.

    It just makes him seem like a Hack, is all.

    Using something else will also make you seem less Douche-like. And, yes, I realize the term Douche is over used and abused. Now you now how it feels like to read your articles.

  • jymmmymack

    Even if I don’t like you Matt Goldberg, nobody should EVER have to sit through Dreamcatcher.

  • Kevin

    lol, I spotted Dreamcatcher immediately for some reason… why do I love that movie so much? Just hilarious I guess…

    This list is pure dedication.

  • fravit

    Cool project.

  • FAILtron

    “I feel pretty proud to have stuck with this project for 365 days (or if you want to be absolutely obnoxious about it, 363 days), and I’d like to share it with all of you.”

    Pretty sure you’re the only “absolutely obnoxious” person here, Matt. Sooo, you made a list of all the films you saw(bitched about) this year, and then stole a bunch of those film’s images from google and slapped it together into a “collage”?? WHOA, how artistic dude!

    • Sccitylhh

      You obviously clicked on the link, so it was interesting enough to get your attention. Your comment is ridiculous and devoid of all logic. Good day.

  • jason

    Goldberg feels like he’s Soderberg. only the thing is, Goldberg hasn’t made a single movie.

    • mass

      I don’t get it.

  • dabears

    Very impressed, that was very cool and am glad you took the time to do it, especially the long-slice version also clearly you like Mcgruber (as do I)

  • Strong Enough

    nice. Hope you have a good next year Matt. Cause were all gonna die by Niburu. lmaooo nah

  • Carmichael

    The first movie I noticed was Drive Angry.

    Doing something like this it takes a lot of dedication, congrats.

  • Blinded

    I must say, this is a gorgeous tribute to cinema. Top notch work.

  • ipolos

    I’ve only been checking this site out for about a year now, it’s become my go-to page for movie news. But damn Matt, you have way too much time on your hands! If you have a wife (fiancee, girlfriend, boyfriend) and kids, go spend some time with them man! Leave the collages for someone else! But again I’m a big fan of the site! :P Happy New Year to the Collider Staff!

  • João Paulo

    This amazing

  • Jeremy

    In the pictures you put some movies like “It’s Kind Of A Funny Story” but you didn’t mention it on the list with the dates

  • Pingback: Movies I should have seen by now

  • Derek

    Sorry it took me this while to ask but; can I ask what software do you used to stitch all of those images together into one huge collage? Ever since I saw this post, I myself have been doing it since 2012 and still continuing it till now but aside from pasting images into my Microsoft Word, I really had no idea where to start. Thanks. and I love the site.
