Letterboxd

I stumbled upon Letterboxd a couple of years ago at a time when I was becoming disillusioned with online foruming. For years, I’d been a member of several film forums but was no longer really posting as certain attitudes had put me off it.

So to find a place where I could have fun again was a godsend.

I started off rather timidly only logging a few films seen at the cinema. From then, I’ve expanded to movies seen in any format and any ones that I have a distinct memory of seeing.

My current tally is of 570 movies (including shorts) seen this year and 4,513 movies in total.
