What an eclectic collection: The Pianist, Finding Nemo, Amelie, O Brother, Where Art Thou. These were just some of the titles that 316 readers listed when telling us about their movie-viewing habits. More than half, 59%, watch a movie once or more per week. More than 90% watch movies at home on TV, videotape, or DVD. Although TV is the most popular medium for home viewing, 66% also frequent cinemas.

Among our respondents, comedy, drama, and science fiction/fantasy topped the list as the most popular genres.

When asked to name the best movies they've seen in the past two years, our respondents produced a list of more than 180 titles. The two parts of the Lord of the Rings were cited most frequently, followed by A Beautiful Mind, The Matrix, and Gladiator.
