Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

Film3Sixty infographic - film survey

I love me a good infographic. And this one from Film3Sixty (who run the shiny new quarterly Film3Sixty magazine, about to hits its third issue in March) is definitely one of them - even if it does prove that I'm abnormal.

Based on the largest film consumer survey ever undertaken in the UK (18,00 people over six months), it sheds a fascinating light on film watching culture in this country, from piracy and Facebook to downloads and cinema trips.

For example, people who admit to pirating films regularly go to the cinema over four times more than those who don't each year. Is it a way of trying a film before spending money on it? Would people spend more at their local cinema if they weren't pirating at home? Either way, piracy is clearly popular (37 per cent of people admitted to piracy) but it's not a replacement for the big screen just yet.

Then there's the fact the average person in the UK watches 120.37 films per year - 17.29 of those being in the cinema. I probably see over 120 odd a year in the cinema alone (and pay for a lot of them). As someone who doesn't regularly pirate films, that puts me quite a way from the bell curve.

Thanks, Film3Sixty, for statistically confirming that I'm abnormal. And looking pretty while doing it.

And by the way, if you came to this via Twitter, only 16 per cent of the folks surveyed said they tweeted about film. That puts us both in a minority. Let's be abnormal together. *six-fingered high five*

Read on for the full infographic - you can get a detailed breakdown of the interesting stats by reading this interview over at Screen Daily.
