I saw 5 movies this year.This is two fewer than last year, which had been a major drop. What more could I expect though since I basically stopped going to the movies? The number was so low that I had to include a movie I watched on a plane and a movie I watched on Netflix.
This year, I saw 3 new movies in the theater, which is on par with last year. 2 were with my company as field trips. Of the 5 I saw this year, I saw all of them for the first time.
My rating system uses stars and equates as follows: 1=bad, 2=ok 3=really good 4=great.
