I thought I was being overly critical of movies this year. I’ll try harder in 2024. 🙂

RunPee is one of my favourite apps. No more googling a film before you see it and risking spoilers, this app has everything you need to know, not just the best time to go to the toilet. Dan, the developer, also offers an amazing customer service experience. I recently switched phones, and Dan was very generous in sorting things out with me as I moved over to my current system. If you’re an avid film watcher, this is the app for you!

Nearly half of the movies that RunPee Sis saw in 2023 got an A- or better grade. (21 with an A- or better and 23 for all other grades.) She’s such a pushover. 🙂

There were only 11 other movies added by anyone other than my sister or me; all but one of those movies got an A- grade or better.

Movie length by year

There is a popular assumption that movies are getting longer every year. Yes, it is true but not by as much as you might think. In the past 14 years, the average movie runtime has only increased by 10 minutes. In the past 10 years the average runtime has only increased by 6 minutes.

Year Value
2009 106.5
2010 106.6
2011 106.8
2012 108.6
2013 110.5
2014 110.4
2015 111.3
2016 109.6
2017 110.2
2018 110.4
2022 116.8
2023 116.3

Movie Runtime Count by Year


The chart above breaks down the number of movies each year with runtimes between 90-99 minutes, 100-109 minutes, and so forth.You can see from the dashed-red-line that the 100-109 range is the most common movie length. That’s the case for every year except for 2012 when the most common was 90-99 minutes, and 2016 and 2018 when the 110-119 range was most common.

Number of movies each year with a runtime over 2 1/2 hours.

You can see from the data below that starting after 2020 the number of movies each year with a runtime over 2 ½ hours has more than doubled. Prior to 2020 there are 33 movies with a runtime over 2 ½ hours, for an average of 3/year. After 2020 there have been an average of 7 movies a year with a 2 ½+ runtime. That’s probably what makes it seem like movies are getting longer. However, there’s more to it than just that. Seven movies alone are not going to increase the average runtime for movies in a year all that much.

    Through detailed analysis of movie scores from RunPee Peeps, we can see that last year was not a successful year for movies. The numbers clearly show the difficulties that movies have not developed in the past year.
