    Well, it's New Year's Eve, and other than watching NEW YEAR'S EVIL, it means gearing up for another year. Of Movie watching. For the past five years now, HORROR DIGITAL members have been tracking their movie watching habits on our forum, and for our sixth I thought it would be nice to give back to all the folks kind enough to share their tastes with us on a (semi-)daily basis. So at the end of this year (That's 2009), I'll give away some selected, to be announced, DVDs to those who make it through the full year.

    That's right, no stopping in February, June or October...you've got to make it all the way. So at this time next year, for anyone who's still actively tracking their movies on the site, I'll put those names in a draw and give away a few prizes. Consider this just another little incentive to get us taking in more culture and watching more movies!

    So what do you need to do? Just reserve a spot in this year's thread, and then fire up that DVD player on a regular basis and you could come home with some cool loot to watch in 2010.

    Happy New Year!

    You can count video game cut scenes if you'd like - it's all up to you!

    Wow, it's pretty broad then. So do we have to cover something everyday, week or month to get into the draw?

    Zombie Dude, I think it's simply a matter of continuing to track the films you watch throughout the year.

    Take a look at previous years' threads and you can see what Rhett means. Some posters simply drop off or forget to track and never pick it back up.

    Fun idea, Rhett.

    Hell, I sometimes put Scooby-Doo episodes in my posts so I'm guessing anything goes.

    Well, I just started tracking movies I've watched on my DVDAF account, might as well do it here as well.

    I've always wanted to do this on some of the other sites I'm on, but never bothered...This will be the first and am looking forward to tracking everything...

    Over the last 4 years I haven't bothered to list most TV shows. If I'm watching tv on dvd I'll count each disc when done. Movies on cable are usually listed. Have fun with and create a system to tag them that makes others wonder what the fuck you're up to. I've only shared my secret code with a few friends, the rest of you can try to figure it out.:D

    I love the threads, although I rarely read what others are watching and use it more as a tool for myself to see when the last time I watched something was, or what movie did I sneak into when I paid for X.

    Do I get 5 entries for making it through the last 4 years plus the up-coming one?;)

    No, there's no "minimum". I mean, if you only watch five movies over the course of the year and log them, cool. More often than not, though, people start strong in January and then just sort of lose interest, so we get a lot of dead posts. Not this year though! New Year's Resolution: For everyone to track their movies for the entire year.

    This is my first time doing this here. I was wondering if it was only horror movies we were to track... but apparently not going by this thread. :)

    This sounds fun, I "track" my movies by rating them on IMDB. I guess now I'll double track 'em.

    Yeah, I'm totally up for another year!

    Thanks for the help. :)
    Good to know, though I'm sure I'll be seeing over five movies this year.
    Tv is probably going to be the hardest thing to track. I'll see how I go.

    Will do come new years. I thought I'd leave it as a regular thread for now so it would stand out more than the sticky would for all the new trackers out there.

    :confused:I'm really confused because I havent ever done something like this. Can someone please explain? So you're supposed to track all of the movies you watch, but how do you know if they're lying or not???

    It doesn't matter because it's not about who watches the most. If you constantly keep track of all the movies you watch throughout the year then you are entered into the draw for prizes.
