155 but then I don't watch sports on TV.

Real men watch women's lacrosse. Something about women wailing on each other--with sticks.

Ahem. REAL men watch beach volley ball...on TV. Watching it in person can be a sunburned tongue danger.

117 out of 180.

Keep in mind though that during the 80's I was living with the manager of a movie theater. I'd watch just about anything for free.

@chai2,
..and my excuse for seeing so many is that I was chained in front of a TV set.

131. Those were the days when I went to movies. These days, not so much. In fact, not at all.

@Roberta,
I went to a zillion movies in the eighties and late seventies, but those were my/our heydays for foreign films at the Fox Venice (not many blocks away from us, used to see sometimes six a week there - they changed the two films every day, a kind of movie goer's heaven) and a few other art theaters..

Haven't been to a movie in a theater since .. uh, maybe 2000? And that one was Red Violin (Canadian).

Only 94? I did try to be judicious about not checking off films I've only seen parts of, like Gremlins.

Most of those 53 were seen on video tape or TV. If I had to limit to what was seen in a movie theater, it would probably be less than 5.

Movie theaters are way overpriced.

113, although I had trouble remembering which ones I'd seen all the way through. Some like Beverley Hills Troop I saw only because I was round someone else's house at the time. I've never seen Dirty Dancing, and never will. No Repo Man.

@izzythepush,
I caught 'Repo Man' because of Harry Dean Stanton.

During the 80's the Ebert rule was any movie with Harry Dean Stanton or M. Emmett Walsh cannot be altogether bad, so I picked up Repo Man--I consider it was hilariously campy.

But then it took me a while to realize that David Lynch's 'Blue Velvet' is a comedy.

@izzythepush,
The 1980's was when Leslie Nielsen grduted from roles here he played some nondescript strait character or a heavy, to when he became a great comedic actor. The "Police Squad " Tv series gave birth to the "Naked Gun" movies. (of which I have a few in my P.C.).
I think leslie Nielsen defined what comedies were to become, silly, preposterous, and funny.

He was also in AIRPLANE, another silliness
