Re: Which One Movie have you Watched the Most Times ?

BTW, a way I've found to make a movie I've seen a lot seen somewhat fresher is to watch it in installments over a long span of time.

(For example, just starting a familiar movie up say ~45 minutes into it and then watching just 10 minutes or so from that point, I sometimes will notice things in it that I missed when always previously watching the movie from the start. Do this for the whole movie in installments spread over weeks or months of time and I notice a lot of stuff throughout it that I didn't catch before.)

Re: Which One Movie have you Watched the Most Times ?

Labyrinth and Return to Oz got watched on a weekly basis throughout elementary school, so one of those probably takes the top spot -- though it's been a few years since I've watched either one.

Not sure how many times I've seen the Star Wars trilogy, but I've got them committed to memory. I saw The Phantom Menace sixteen times in theaters as a kid (and maybe half a dozen times since), but that's only a fraction of how many times I've seen the originals. Apart from catching bits on Spike TV, I haven't revisited the series since the DVDs first came out. I guess a marathon will be in order before Episode VII is released.

I think probably the Back to the Future Trilogy. I watched them a bunch as a kid and own the films on VHS, DVD, and Blu-ray and I've watched all the versions numerous times.

I went through a period where I watched The Rocky Horror Picture Show about once a week, probably seen it fifty or sixty times, though the last time I watched it was after getting the DVD in 2000.

The 'burbs. It's one of the rare movies that I've always loved. Saw it fairly young (12 or 13) and really liked it, but thought it was scary. The older I got, the less scary and more funny it got. In college it was a constant go-to, and I probably could've come close to writing the screenplay from memory. I watched it a fair number of times when it first came out on dvd, but it's been a couple years since I've popped it in. It's definitely my #1 want for blu-ray.

Blade Runner without a doubt. I maintain that i have seen this movie more than any other person worldwide. At this point i cannot even estimate how many times i have seen it, but north of 2,000 is definite. During High School i remember i watched the movie once every single day for one year. These days i have cut my viewing down and watch it about once a month.

Star Wars, as nothing comes close, not even Empire or Return.

I probably watched it a 1,000 times on HBO as a kid when it premiered in 1983. Back then, they didn't have a huge library of movies, so they would show the 'A' movies once in the morning, once in the afternoon, and once in primetime.

I would hear the 20th Century Fox theme and yell down to my brother in the basement, "Star Wars is ONNNNNN!!!!"

Probably The Blues Brothers for me, although the dorm room down the hall from me had Major League on an endless loop for a while, so I might have more second-hand exposure to that one

Star Wars...the original version. I had it on RCA Videodisc when I was about 12 and watched it almost every day the first year I had the player.

Re: Which One Movie have you Watched the Most Times ?

I grew up in an era when the only way an obsessive viewer could see a film multiple times was if it came to movie theaters a lot. I saw WEST SIDE STORY 22 times in theaters from the age of nine to the age of 18. Then it came on TV for the first time and everybody watched it. Then I saw it in a revival theater three years later, which makes 24 times. I did see it on TV and on home video a few times in the 1980s and '90s, so I'm guessing close to 30 times total. I last watched it complete in 1994 for a film course on Realism in the Cinema at Grad School. It's not a film I'm eager to revisit. I often wonder how completely warped my views on romance are from seeing this film so many times at such an impressionable age.

Films seen the most times at a more normal pace over the decades would be THE WILD BUNCH and YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE. I've lost count of how many times, but it would be about 25 for each. I saw each in theaters 15 or more times and then multiple times on TV, VHS, DVD and, in WILD BUNCH's case, Blu-ray.

Jaws or Predator. I don't really keep track.

That's on the border between impressive and scary. Where did you find time every day in high school to watch a movie? Would you put it on in bed before going to sleep? Did you sit down and watch it intensely or was there other stuff (like homework) going on?

Mr Blandings Builds His Dream House, but unlike many here I have seen it probably 20-25 times

Excalibur would be second in the 15ish range

Probably one of the key Universal Horrors, perhaps Frankenstein which I must have watched 100+ times through the VHS era and the first and second DVD releases, then on Blu. There are probably a few others getting up there like Things to Come (1936) or possibly the first Hammer Dracula.

I'm not sure, its probably something that was frequently on TV growing up... like Rocky 3 or Bloodsport

As far as actually sitting down to watch a DVD or Blu-ray, its probably The Matrix.
