I'm ranging from 26-50 (Jumanji - The Next Level) - however, that's NOT one movie I intend to watch!

Changed the intro a little to keep it shorter & make it more clear and exact.
So the content changed a little to the past (the last year).

0 - 10 ... I'm not so into it. I like a good book better.

Actually, in my case I tend to re-watch older films.

I am most definitely a film freak and my "to watch" list for this year is roughly 360 movies, most of the list being movies I haven't seen yet (which for me is the main purpose of having a curated list at all: I discovered in 2018-2019 that I can vurtually forget for years that I wanted to watch something and first list in 2019 had some cases that I was circling for 10 years already). There is also expanded list, since I also have roughly 74 movies of 2019 list catch-up and a similar amount of "to watch at some point". That roughly makes 500-505 movies. 

Realistically it's a hard-to-impossible challenge. Counting some of the partial views (I do in cases when I had no control over circumstances, like glancing over something in cinema as it ends, TV, etc.) and technically feature films, not all of which are convenionally considered movies (some live streams, minimal features of 45 minutes, amateurish shoddy half-productions, partially lost movies etc.) the number of previously unseen movies I was able to reach in 2019 was 164 (54 of them from the list which had roughly 130 entries). But 2019 was kinda weak in that regard and I might be closer to 300 this year, I guess. I think I'll be fine if I'll be able to take 200-250 movies from the list, but the more the merrier.

What the hell is a wildcard in this context?

I can tell you I've seen 72 never before seen movies at the movie theater.

I'm not sure how many movies I've seen at home in 2019. The IMDb advanced search engine cannot help in that department because you cannot narrow the ratings down to the year you rated them.

I'm not sure how to figure out the math from this point.

Hi Breu,

I can't quite understand the context of the question, you to be asking how many movies I saw last year? If I'm correct, I guess I'm a movie maniac. When I create my IMDb account (at the beginning of 2019) I only registered about 300 rated movies, now I've rated 700 movies, about 350 movies watched last year, without count those that I had already seen and I had to check them one more time to qualify them.
There was a really hectic season for me, I watched up to 2 movies or more per day.

I reviewed 1600 movies in a span of 9 years, which mean 1600 watchings and maybe 30 re-watching per year so I guess it mounts up to an average of 200 movies every year.
I'm a movie freak... gobble gobble... one of us!

Please change the title of your list from:

Breu, your question is still a bit confusing. 
May I suggest:
How many movies did you watch for the first time the past year?

Also:
(Including older, old and very old movies you saw for the first time.)

I'm a cross between 2 and 3... I do watch movies I've never seen before quite often, but with life going on I can also just let the same 'I Am Dragon' or MST3K play all week, lol.
But I guess 3 is more accurate.

Hi Breu, I think the intro has improved but I still get a bit confused and distracted by these first two sentences:

This issue includes all technical formats. Please guess your former year.

If you don't think that they're necessary, I would delete them. If you think they are needed, I'd suggest including it in a note below the discussion link. The following is very good, clear, and it seems to me, all you need. 

How many movies did you watch for the first time the past year? (Including older, old and very old movies you saw for the first time.

'Good poll, btw! : )

Hi ruby. :D
It seems to be better to keep it as simple as it can be.
I've cut the two sentences.

I don't have the exact number, but I watch films at home every friday and saturday, and they are practically always new, I also go to the movies at least 25 times, and when I have the chance I watch a film in the morning, so I now it was more than 104, but I don't think more thatn 200.
