my database continues to grow

well, 886 titles have been entered into my movies database, leaving me with about 3-400 titles left to enter, depending on how big my collection is now (last count it was at about 1,150, but it’s probably over 1,200 by now).

It’s so cool to have the database – the lists I can compile are cool. I have 886 entered and for those 886 titles there are 1,153 discs, and 716 are widescreen features. In total, I have 121,260 minutes worth of story on film, which works out to 2,021 hours. It would take just over 84 days to watch the 886 titles that have been entered, if you could go that long without sleeping. If you only watch 2 1/2 hours a day, it would take 808 days to watch all the titles that I’ve entered, just over 2 years.

So far, 63 of the above titles are foreign films on 70 discs, 58 of which are widescreen presentations. It would take 7,052 minutes to watch my foreign films (which I define as anything made outside of Canada or USA), or just over 117 hours or 4.9 days if you could stay up for that time without sleeping. If you only watched 2 1/2 hours per day, it would take 47 days to watch my foreign film collection ;).

I can also sort my movies right now by Distributor, by the year they were made and by director.

I’ve completed titles that appear under numbers, as well as A, B, C, D, E, F, N, O, P, Q, R, S, U, V, W, X, Y, Z… this leaves G, H, I, J, K, L, M and T left to finish. I’ll probably finish T later tonight after I do some more homework.

I hope to have the remaining titles entered into the new database within the next two to three weeks (at the most – maybe sooner, depending on how I prioritize things).

Then I’ll update my online list(s).
