While I was on vacation and visiting with my friend Jerry in Pennsylvania we wanted to see a movie and had a hard time figuring out what to see.  Nothing looked very good to us, we ultimately decided onLincoln,but wound up getting up and leaving halfway through because we didn't like it.  Seeing movies over Christmas and New Year's is a tradition in many families, but I don't think moviegoers this year had that much to chose from.  Take a look at these charts, and tell me which year had a better selection in theaters...  This year or 20 years ago.
