How Many Films Have You Watched in Your Life?
From worstpreviews, Gwilym Hughes, a movie enthusiast who held a Guinness World Record for the number of films he had watched, has died at the age of 65.
Hughes used to watch up to 14 films per week (2 per day) and kept a detailed record of each one he had seen. Guinness reports that he sat through more than 28,000 movies in his lifetime, with his favorites being "Lawrence of Arabia," "The Dambusters" and "The Sundowners."
Hughes claimed that he usually watched movies between 9pm and 12am and it never interfered with his life.
