The Oscar Quest Update: 13 Months (REMIX)

Sometimes I exceed even my own expectations. When I posted the 13 Months update ten days ago, I figured — that’s it. That’s all I’d be able to watch for the month. Because, eight days ago, I moved from New York to Los Angeles. (Which also explains the time shift in when posts go up.) I figured there’d be no way I could get in enough movies to post another update before the end of July. Yeah, I was wrong.

Turns out, I watched another 50 films. Qu’est-ce que c’est? Oh yeah, I’m a psycho killer. (Fa fa fa fa fa…) 50 films in 10 days. Because what else was I gonna do in an unfurnished apartment while waiting for all my shit to come in? Watch 50 films. That’s what.

That leaves us with only 100 more films to go. Total. I’m such a fucking boss. I also managed to find some heretofore unavailable films (and have leads on some others, but I’m only telling you about what I’ve found as of this posting). It’s all very exciting.

As it stands, of the 100 films left, I have, in my possession, 60 of them. There’s 1 in the Netflix Watch Instant Queue (6-hour mini-series. Really dreading it). Of the remaining 39 that are not in my possession — 15 of them I can’t find anywhere (at the moment), 17 of them I found on DVD via Amazon, Archive Collections or on sites that seem to find old movies and put them out on DVD. Which is a surprising number. And there are also 7 of them that I may have leads on, but I don’t want to presume anything until I have them.

So let’s do this one more time. Here are the final 100 filmsRemix, baby!
