In my days of fewer responsibilities I was doing about 150 a year. Now I'm in the 50-100 range, closer to the 50 mark.

At my peak of obsession, 400-500. Currently, less than 50 (maybe on the low end of the 50-100 range). And a good portion of those are revisits.

Just noticed there is a bracket missing. I will add it at the end if anyone requests.

Voted 200 to 250. By my count that should be about right but I don't actually keep a tally.

I had not realised you had diminished your viewings to quite that extent, Martin. The vicissitudes of marriage I suppose.

When I was in school studying film I was easily clocking in 300-400 movies a year. As soon as I finished, I nosedived into the 150-200 range. Now I'm generally around 150 by the end of the year.

Movies used to be my life, now I do more than just movies and don't miss them as much. Still enjoy visiting them but they're not the thing I do defacto anymore. The part I do miss is the writing because I used to write a lot more and since I almost always wrote about film, I just haven't found myself as motivated to write about non-film subjects.

I used to average about one a day-- 400 a year.  Now I'm more at 150.

This is a down year for me, currently only at 132. I voted 200-250, which is probably accurate. I used to consistently be over 300 though.

Even with my summer of few movies I've seen 254 this year, my watching has gotten much more spurty the last few years.
