Quarantine during COVID-19 pandemic allowed film fan watch 1,000 movies

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez:  Millions of people around the world enjoyed watching their favorite movies and TV shows during the mandatory lockdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.  

But, one particular film fan took it to the next level, watching more than 1000 movies during the lockdown. 

After losing his job to the COVID-19 economic meltdown, Phil Watts from Somerset, England watched a whopping 1,028 films.   

Watts is the son of a former cinema projectionist and he describes himself as a “super geek” when it comes to cinema.   

Included in his line-up was every James Bond, Star Trek and Fast and Furious film.  

Watts formerly worked at a wood working firm before the COVID-19 pandemic struck.   

When he began working from home in 2021, he did other projects but had films in the background.  

He began keeping notes of the films he had watched and by March of 2021, he had already seen 400, so he thought of watching 1,000 in a year.
