I saw a grand total of only 4 of these movies: The Dark Knight Rises, Argo, The Campaign and The Amazing Spider-Man (viewed on an airplane). This is even worse than last year when I saw only five of the top 50 movies. Does it count that I read The Hunger Games and Life of Pi? I really need to get out more in 2013!

Correction: As MCole pointed out in the comments, I missed The Expendables 2. Therefore, I actually saw 5 of these movies. Yay me!

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

I saw only 3 :(.

I've seen 13 although I did a movie marathon and saw 4 of these in one day. And you have seen one more since I was with you when you saw the expendables 2.

I saw ten, back in the olden days, I would have said something like 40.

Christian said...

I saw 17 of these. I think I'm kind of proud that I didn't see more of these. Another exceptionally mediocre year in movies.

Marc said...

7, which is more then I would have guessed. And there are 5 that I'll make a point to see this year.

Of the current list, I saw The Hunger Games and Skyfall. Both on PayPerView. It was worth the $4.99 for Skyfall. The, er, brilliance of The Hunger Games was lost on me.

Oh, and Magic Mike. Hardly intellectual stuff but I guess that's not the point.
