If my calculations are right, I watched 67 of the 212 movies (Limited & Wide Release), which is 31.6%.  However, of the 212, only 141 were Wide Releases, which means I watched 47.5% of those!  How many have you seen?

They have reported box office sales were the lowest since 1992.  Did you go as often as "normal" is for you?  If not, was it because you weren't interested in the movies? or your schedule is too busy? or ticket prices are too high?

Of the ones I haven't watched, can you recommend one?

That is a lot of movies. I think my favorites from last year were Return of the Planet of the Apes, X-Men: First Class, 30 Minutes or Less, Horrible Bosses, Mission Impossible 4, The Muppets, and Hall Pass.
