As a result, movies are all around us, and they can even seem entirely inescapable. In fact, over seven hundred films release in American cinemas every year, and the numbers rise every year. Between the years 2000 and 2016, movie released nearly doubled. However, this only makes it tougher to keep track and know your stuff.
