If you're talking about having seen them in the theater, none of them. If you're talking just having seen them, then 1, 2, 4, 10, and depending on which version, 9.

I have Avatar and Return of the King on DVD. The rest I've seen on TV at various times.

Eight of them.

Haven't seen No. 5 or 10 - oh, and No. 3 as well, because the 2nd part of the final Harry Potter film isn't out yet, but I've seen the first part of it.

I can easily tell you how. Those are by and large "kiddie" movies, for the most part. Drop the kiddies off at the theater with a little cash for "baby sitting services." Films such as those can rack up the cash pretty fast.

The only film that racked up attendance "legitimately" on that list would be Titanic. I remember the craze people were in over it when it came out. Frankly, I never could see what all the "to-do" was about. I watched part of it when it came on T.V., and I only watched part of it because that was all I could take.

well, i thoroughly enjoyed the pirates for one, but there seems a tremendous gap between those of quality and those that bring in the bucks.

rather sad when you think about it.

In the theater, I've only seen two of the movies on the list: Avatar and Titanic. On DVD, however, I own many of them, Avatar, Titanic, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 (actually, I own ALL of the Harry Potter series -- they're SOOOO awesome!), Toy Story 3, and the movies from the Pirates of the Caribbean series (I own all of THOSE, too -- how I LOVE Johnny Depp!). I've also seen the Dark Knight, which I'll probably try to get my hands on someday--THAT was an awesome movie, too...
