50/50 Challenge of 2013

5050-posterWe’re already two weeks in new year, so I’ve better wrap this up. Obviously I didn’t achieve any of the goals I set to myself when it comes to this challenge. I was suppose to watch 200 movies, didn’t. I did watch 126 movies, so it’s not THAT bad but then again, it is. I call myself a film fanatic but this does not look like it. Anyhoo, here’s the list of my favourites of 2013.

I didn’t watch all Jeremy Renner films either and I surely didn’t watch the Godfathers… So hurray… And of course I didn’t read 50 books. Obviously. But I did better than 2012. Back then I read only seven books, now at least I read three more. (Yeah, I know, pathetic.) Anyways, I will be trying again and you can see here how I’m doing. I linked all the reviews I made of the books or movies to the ones that I actually reviewed.

Tomorrow back to the Oscar predictions.
