I have made it a personal mission to see as many movies as I can in this lifetime, but some guy in New York is just taunting me.
Comedian and film producer Mark Malkoff, started a Netflix movie-thon on April 16.
In the first week alone, he watched 60 films for a total of 95.55 hours.
By the halfway point of his endurance test, Malkoff had watched 117 films — a total of 189.4 hours — and had managed to get his per film cost down to $.068.
He did manage to slip out of the apartment, though he continued to watch movies on his iPhone and iPad. He even wrangled actor Andrew McCarthy to join him in the park for a viewing of St. Elmo's Fire.
By the time Mark ended the 30-day experiment, he'd watched 252 films, including approximately 29.4 hours of closing credits.
He averaged more than 13 hours a day of movie watching for a total of 404.25 hours. More importantly, he only spent $.032/film.
Unfortunately, he also gained six pounds. Steer clear of the butter on the popcorn buddy!
Here's his other comedic endeavors:
