My 2016 Read/Watched List

As many of you know, every year Steven Soderbergh posts a list of the things he's watched and read. After seeing his list last year I thought it would be fun to try and do the same. So, here it is, my read/watched list for 2016!

You'll sometimes notice big gaps in dates. This is primarily due to the two features, digital pilot and short film that I directed over the past year. I wish I had more time to read and watch and it feels like there's a lot of things I didn't get a chance to see yet, especially as we got closer to the end of the year.

In 2016, I saw 60 films, watched multiple episodes of 21 TV shows and read 45 books.

I did not include the 50+ times I saw the movie CARS with my son. 

Here's the key:

BOLD CAPS = MOVIE (at home or in theater)

CAPS = TV SHOWS (includes Netflix)

Lowecase Italicized = Books
