What DVD Titles Have You "Dipped" On The Most (Other Than Evil Dead Series) ?

I was looking at a few oddities I've doubledipped on here lately and the question came to my mind. The Evil Dead series seems to be the most obvious title/series, so I was wondering what other titles everyone has bought over once, twice, and more? I've never been a fan of doubledipping but that doesn't mean I haven't done so from time to time. Off the top of my head I can think of a few I've dipped more than twice in my collection-

Kill Bill- 4 times (2 early cheesy imports, the official release and a Japanese 2 pack)
Rocky- 3 times (early first release, then in both box sets- and am NOT buying the third box set coming out next year!)
Aliens-3 times (first and second SEs and in the Japanese R2 Quadrilogy set)

I've got 3 copies of 2001: a space odyssey. The first Kubrick Collection release, the Remastered release and the silver box Collector's edition. I realise that I don't need to keep them all but since it is one of my favourites I don't mind having them take up space. I'm actually looking to pick up the first release of this if I ever see it somewhere.

I've been bit by the double-dip bug a few times

Field of Dreams & Batman most recently
Aliens (one of the first DVDs I bought but I had to get the quadrilogy)
Blues Brothers (had to have the theatrical version)
A Bug's Life (don't even remember why)
Casablanca (another early buy)
The Color Purple (my only flipper, happy to be rid of it)
Heat
Jaws (wanted the mono track)
I have both versions of all the LOTR films
Malcolm X
The Matrix
Silence of the Lambs (kept the Criterion for the commentary, upgraded for the picture)
The Untouchables

I'll be upgrading Lady & the Tramp and probably 4 Weddings & a Funeral pretty soon.

I double dipped to from the barebones Memento to the LE.

I double dipped from the standard issues of Matrix, Matrix Reloaded, and Animatrix to get the Collection.

And I upgraded my copies of Office Space and Escape from NY.

and I double dipped the entire Evangelion series. and...The Office (to get the set).

hrmph, I've double dipped much more than I thought.

The only thing I've ever double dipped on was Underworld. But that was only because I found the extended version for $6 used.

Just Black Hawk Down, Warriors, Iron Giant and Hoosiers for me. Although I usually end up selling the less-extras-heavy versions to BBV when they have their $8 promotions.

I've never double dipped. Been tempted a few times, but I managed to resist.

The Ring series. I have (in order of purchase):

Ring (Ringu) - Tartan UK R0 release
Ring 2 - Tartan UK R0 release
Ring 0 - Tartan UK R0 release

Then...

Ringu - R1 release

Later I picked up:

The Ring Trilogy: Ring/Ring 2/Ring 0/Sleeping Bride - Tartan UK R0 release

Mainly because I wanted the Sleeping Bride movie that was an extra on it.

A little later I ended up picking up

Ringu: Anthology of Terror - R1

Because I got it on a good deal.

I have 3 copies of Saving Private Ryan. The early non-DTSrelease, then I accidently bought the re-release thinking it was DTS, but DTS was only in the gift set, so I bought that one too.
I have all 3 LOTR in theatrical and EE, and I have the Taiwan EE's for the wooden box.

When Justice League season one comes out, that will win. I had the individual releases (up through the Starcrossed movie) sold them and bought some, uh, "unofficial" releases.

Bought the Alien Legacy collection and then Quadrilogy, but was able to sell Legacy for what I bought it for.

I think that's it.

Most of my upgrades have been for better picture and/or sound, in many cases having bought a title in the early days of DVD that was neither anamorphic or cleaned up for release.

More double-dips than I could even begin to list. I'm a whore for getting the best versions available, and I can often resell the originals for a decent price. (I don't hang onto anything that is replicated or improved on other discs.)

I don't think I've ever quad-dipped... but I've certainly triple-dipped a few times:

Black Hawk Down
Pretty Woman
Spider-Man
Terminator 2
Wizard of Oz

Edit: Forgot about Kurosawa's RAN.

I've gotten 2001 3 times as well. The original MGM non-anamorphic release in the keepcase. The remastered WB release. And another copy of the remastered DVD when my original died on me.

Not counting defective DVDs, I believe the only title I've dipped on more than twice is Manhunter. I bought the 2-disc Anchor Bay LE. Then I got the Divimax Director's Cut. And finally the MGM Japanese theatrical cut DVD. I also got the theatrical cut on laserdisc off of eBay if you wanna count that. So I technically own 5 versions of Manhunter.

I try not to double dip. I think my only double dips are Raging Bull, T2, Total Recall, Office Space, Ben Hur, Wizard of Oz, first two Lord of the Rings movies, Ran, Army of Darkness and Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2 of course --might be a couple of others. I didn't double dip at all for a year or so, but Office Space (total impulse buy, that Best Buy special pack sucked me in), Ben Hur, Wizard of Oz and the Evil Dead Books of the Dead 2 pack are all really recent. I'll have to go back to my non double-dipping ways after Ran, which is likely to be my first triple dip (I did sell off the first version for more than I paid at CH, and the second one was from CH too, so at least I didn't waste too much on these).

I don't think I've ever triple dipped, but all the doubles dips I've done are:

12 Monkeys
The Big Lebowski
Fifth Element
Heat
Hellboy
Leon: The Professional
Man on Fire
Predator
Underworld

In the case of Heat, the one I had before was a gift, and then I upgraded, so I'm not sure if that counts as double dipping since I only paid for one. My biggest double dip has to be for the Big Lebowski Achiever's Edition gift set... had to have that one.
