Limitless: A Year On

My Limitless card is up for renewal in a few weeks and I was curious about whether it was a worthwhile investment (it was).

I wanted to document what movies I saw though this is hardly a model of the scientific method (I’m happily retired, ergo I have more time than most, and I also have access to what I’m affectionately calling the ‘CEA loophole’ where I can take in a plus one at no extra cost, again for free).

Also I’ve turned movie-going into a habit and finally gotten over my anxiety about crowded spaces. Repeat viewings are either due to boredom, someone/me wanting to go or a genuine love of the movie (Arrival, I’m looking at you because you emotionally broke me but I heart you). There were also a slew of good movies out during 2016-17 and I travelled a bit (which allowed me to see movies elsewhere, like during my trip to Bath with Shannon).

 So what did I see?

  • Doctor Strange: twice (+1 person at each showing)
  • Storks: once (+1 person)
  • Inferno: once (+1 person)
  • Nocturnal Animals: once (+1 person)
  • Arrival: twice (+1 person at each viewing)
  • Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: three times (+1 person at two of the three)
  • Allied: once
  • Moana: five times (!!!! also +1 person at two showings)
  • Rogue One: twice
  • Passengers: once
  • Assassin’s Creed: once (+1 person)
  • Sing: once (+1 person)
  • The Lego Batman Movie: once (+1 person and a student)
  • Logan: once (+ 1 person)
  • Beauty and the Beast: twice (+1 each time)
  • Life: once (+1 person)
  • Ghost in the Shell: once (+1 person)
  • Fast and the Furious 8: once (+1 person)
  • Hidden Figures: once (+1 person)
  • The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2: twice (+1 person at one showing)
  • Alien: Covenant: twice (+1 person per screening)
  • La La Land: once (+1)
  • Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales: once (+1 person)
  • Wonder Woman: twice (+2 person at each showing)
  • Despicable Me 3: once (+1)
  • The Fate of the Furious: once (+1)
  • Atomic Blonde: once (+1)
  • IT: once (+1)

That’s 40 movies … wow. That’s around £800 worth of screenings for £205, definitely the gift which kept on giving.
