For myself, 1439 out of 2251 movies are listed by Criticker as being from the USA, which is close to 64%.


Seven years later:

    USA: 2370 out of 3915 = 60.5%
    UK: 621 = 15.9%
    France: 518 = 13.2%
    Germany + West Germany: 199 + 82 = 7.2%
    Italy: 178 = 4.5%
    Canada: 163 = 4.2%
    Japan: 131 = 3.3%
    Australia: 130 = 3.3%
    Spain: 80 = 2.0%
    Sweden: 67 = 1.7%
    Denmark: 58 = 1.5%
    Iran: 39 = 1.0%
    Soviet Union + Russia: 26 + 13 = 1.0%

All the same qualifications about the country designations on Criticker still apply seven years later. For example, it is not even remotely true that I have seen 163 Canadian movies.

I don't have time to a full breakdown but

USA: 80.6%
Non-USA: 32.3%


I've been watching a lot of Classic Hollywood recently so it's not likely going to happen anytime soon but I would love if that number could get below 70%. I'd really like to have a more diverse consumption of pop culture, in all senses of the term.

My Top Ten Countries @ 1140+ rankings

USA --------------------------- 914 - (79.8%) (Down ~1% from 2 years ago)
UK ---------------------------- 164 - (14.3%)
France ------------------------ 69 - (6.0%)
Germany/West Germany--- 59 - (5.2%)
Canada (I live there!) ------ 42 - (3.7%) (The CRTC would be disappointed with my distinct lack of Can-Con)
Japan ------------------------- 27 - (2.4%)
India -------------------------- 25 - (2.2%)
Australia --------------------- 17 - (1.5%)
Italy -------------------------- 14 - (1.2%)
New Zealand ---------------- 12 - (1.0%)

I speak French and German also, so France and Germany being my two highest non-English countries is no surprise.
