I saw a grand total of 5 of these movies: 4 in the theater (Hangover II, Super 8, The Muppets & Moneyball) and 1 on DVD (Bridesmaids). I’m not counting Lion King since I saw it in the 90s and not in 2011 or 2012. I am obviously a hermit.

So how many movies did you see? Please leave your answer and any thoughts about the films in the comments section below.

I saw 6 of the movies. Most during the summer blockbuster season: #1, 2, 12, 13, 14, 17. I saw all of them in the theatre. Specifically at the cinema grille where you get to eat dinner at the theatre while you watch the movie.

I saw 16 of them. All in the theater except Pirates of the Caribean and Smurfs I watched with my family on Christmas. And Green Hornet and No Strings attached I watched on a flight to Europe.

And with few exceptions (moneyball, the help, Super 8) this list justifies my opinion that this was a really bad movie year.

4, 12, 14, 27, 30, 36, 40, 43. Well, I feel asleep on Gnomeo & Juliet. Does that count?

11. Only one not in the theater -- Yay, kids movies! But Cars 2 was an atrocity. And Hop was even worse. I am a less worthwhile human being for having seen Hop. I believe my kids also saw 11, but it was a fairly different list.

Nichole - The dinner/movie theatre sounds like a fun place. How's the food? Do they have waitstaff come out to serve food while the movie is playing?

Christian - I figured that you would be the leader in seeing the most films. Did you happen to see Footloose? (How did that masterpiece not make the list?)

Lacochran - Yes, falling asleep during Gnomeo & Juliet counts.

Messiah - I would say congrats on seeing 11 movies, but it sounds like you don't want to count Cars 2 and Hop. Would it have been better if they combined the films into Hopping Cars.

The food is pretty good. You can get typical movie snacks like popcorn and candy but you can also get pizza, burgers, etc. The waitstaff take your order before the movie starts but you can buzz them during the movie if you need something else. Oh, and they serve alcohol :)

Wow. I saw 18! And The Husband saw probably about 5 more. Geez, we watch a lot of movies. But mostly my count goes up because of all the kids movies we watch. When it comes to Saturday night, I would much rather watch any new release, even if it's Zookeeper, than another rerun of a Disney kids show.
