Yes, I will do the dirty work and chart the number of films I watch that has a scene in it of an actor upchucking, spewing, heaving, regurgitating, hurling or any other slang you want to call it. I am sensing the question that is percolating in your brains dear readers: why? Well, I'm always disgusted when I see on-screen puking and every year I'd seem to see it occur a dozen or more times and think to myself why there's so many scenes of someone throwing up in a movie? 2011 will be the year that I actually put a number to it in a random, unscientific study. Aren't you glad that you are getting to read CineRobot for free? I should charge for undertaking these mathematic projects.
I've seen 22 films in 2011 and so far 7 of them have had a vomit scene. That's 31% of movies so far in January. I will keep you all up to date on this topic throughout 2011. Dear readers, is there anything else I should be monitoring that you can think of? I obviously will sink to low depths to satiate my own messed up queries if I'm tracking the vomit scenes I come across.
