What's the most popular production year in your collection?

I was looking at some of the stats in my DVDProfiler and I came across a rather startling discovery.

As far as I'm concerned at least, 2001 was a phenomenal year for films and my favourite year of all by quite a considerable margin.



Sure, the graph includes a minor number of TV DVDs as well, but I still can't believe how many DVDs I own from just that single year

Looking at my Top 20 favourite films, I can see that 5 of them are also from 2001 (Donnie Darko, Vanilla Sky, Thirteen Conversations About One Thing, Mulholland Drive, Avalon).

Those of you who also use DVDProfiler (or other DVD collection software), what is the most popular year in your collection? (In DVD Profiler, you can see this by choosing Tools > Charts & Graphs and then Statistics > General > Production Years)

Those of you who don't use DVD collection software, which is your favourite year for movies and why?

Are we really running that low on new topic ideas?

I think you might wanna post you age also, to make this somewhat relevant.

I'm 32, but confused as to why that's relevant?

Pretty sure you would see the curve move up and down with the age group. It's a typical up and down curve. We'll see.

Side note, I can't seem to get DVDProfiler to show that graph beyond 1978 for some reason. Hmm....

OK, yeah, possibly. It's easier to identify with eras you were a part of.

Screen res. issue? DVDProfiler's not too good at rendering those graphs.

15 titles from 1999 makes it the most popular year, but i average 7 or 8 discs for every year since 1959.

Tried my max screen res (1920 x 1200) with no difference. I'm guessing it's the number of DVDs that it can't handle (I have a little over 1800). Here is the graph it shows and it is not even close to being accurate. Weird.

These kinds of topics feed my OCD, but I think it's interesting to see how people distribute their collections. I deducted TV titles & compilations, & came up with this:

1. 1974 (19 titles)
2. 2002 (18)
2. 1988
4. 2000 (17)
4. 1999
4. 1998
7. 1959 (16)
8. 1964 (15)
8. 1962
8. 1960
8. 1955
12. 1948 (14)

And I'm 43.

217 - action
133 - drama
132 - sci-fi
120 - adventure
108 - suspence/ thriller
104 - comedy

or

retail vs actual $ spent

Most is 2002, and the years surrounding it are all about half of it, my older most popular years are 1941, 1958, 1962 and 1975

Out of 456 total DVD's (according to DVDProfiler), my top years are:

DVD's   Years
  35       2001
  30       2000, 2003
  26       2002
  23       1998, 1999
  20       1995, 1997

The graph is a slow but steadily growing slope starting back in 1925.

I don't have my collection in Profiler, so I'll need to count them in Aficionado...but I don't have time right now...about to leave for church.

Question though...how are you all counting TV show sets? Because a good 45% or so of my collection is TV shows.

1939.
So many classics, just off the top of my head now: Gone with the Wind, Wizard of Oz, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Wuthering Heights, Gunga Din, The Roaring Twenties, Stagecoach, Rules of the Game, &c. I know there are at least a few more too.
