My son downloads all the latest movies for me and usually drops off one or two on a Sunday for me to watch during the week. It seems no matter how many movie channels I have they always show the same movies over and over unless of course I want to pay for them then that's a different story. In an average week how many movies do you watch at home? Do you tape them, rent them or buy them?

At least 7, one a night.I have many videos but I usually find a good movie on one of the many movie channels I have.Last night I got to see The Departed on Cinemax. What was so funny was I was just about to play my DVD of the Departed when I looked down and saw it was to air at the right time.

At least 5, on average 10. We rent new releases from Redbox - $1.00 a night. For everything else we rent from the local video store because they have "nearly new" for $1.00/5 nights and Favorites 2/$1.00 for 5 nights. Friday night, Sat night and many a Sunday night is spent til 2-4 am watching movies.

I used to have time to watch movies but not so much any more. I think I actually see movies in theaters moreso then I watch them at home nowadays. But back when I was a member of blockbuster online I would rent and watch 3 movies a week.

I'm not a movie person at all, so I would have to say that I watch maybe one a week. I'm ore of a 1 hour or 30 minute show person.

I usually see about 2 movies a week. They are usually movies that are on television. I'll only buy a tape if it is a movie that I seen in the movies and really enjoyed, or if it is a movie that I want to see really bad but didn't get a chance to go see it. I never rent movies.

Lately I've been watching a lot of movies, since my father decided we were going to pay the extra ten dollars a month for the premium movie channels. So now, I watch whatever is On Demand, since I have three different channels to choose from. We also rent a lot of movies from Blockbuster, since we have the Rewards program we get to rent a new release and get a family favorite for free. On top of that, my father downloads too, so we never really miss anything. I prefer to watch movies over watching regular television anyday, since all they really ever play is re-runs anyway. To answer your first question, one how many I watch a week. I'd have to say since getting the premium On Demand channels, I watch probably 15 movies a week now. As soon as one ends I just start up another one, gives me something to do while I'm mylotting.

I watch nine movies a week. From Monday to friday, I watch one film in the night after coming down from office. During the weekends, I watch two films a day, hence totally four during the weekends. I mostly watch in internet or in TV. It is not required the someone should accompany me while watching television. But i will be happy if my hubby joins me. Watching television is the major recreation that I have at present.

Well, on average, I guess I watch about two movies a week. I am not a movie person, usually I prefer to play games or reading. If I find some movie that is famous or very interesting , I will rent or go to theater.

My whole family are movie lovers. Usually, we will just watch re-run movies during weeknight and V premiere movies over the weekends. In between that, it is always the nearby rental dvd shop that is frequented. We rent around 7-8 movies a month, 2 per week. Cinemas to catch the latest? Ummm... once every 2 months.

We watch about 3 a week. We get all of them from the library which is within walking distance. I go there a couple of times a week and always find at least 1 movie. Unless I have a gift card or mystery shop for Blockbuster, we don't rent, so we probably go there about once every couple months. The movie channels are a waste of money...like you said, they just keep showing the same movies over and over so we just have the basic 75 cable channels. We're very "frugal" in case you couldn't tell :)

On average, I think I watch about two or three movies a week. Usually, though, I just catch a part of a movie on TV. I don't really rent movies anymore, and I hate pay-per-view movies, because the time limit is so restricting. I do own a lot of videos and DVDs, though, which I watch on occasion. I haven't been watch movies like I used to, because my mind is losing its concentration skills (I'm going a bit stir-crazy from winter).

Well we have a lot of DVD's here so we watch them often. I will usually watch at least one a day so that's 7 in a week? But on the weekends it could be more. It's just some times easier to pop one in and let it play then to try and find something interesting on tv. This way also if I'm doing other things I can miss a section of the movie and not worry. My computer is right in front of the tv so often I'm on here while watching. It makes the time go a lot faster.
