Which One Movie have you Watched the Most Times ?

We've had threads about rewatchability before but let's keep it simple

Which ONE movie have you watched the most times in your life ? (and it may not be your favourite movie now)

For me i think it is Back to the Future, not because it's my favourite movie now (still a fav though) but because i watched it so many times as a kid, added on the number of times i've seen it as a adult and it's quite a few.

Ghostbusters

I don't recall this due to my age at the time, but my dad told me on a few occasions how I watched it so much the tape snapped in our VCR. I must have been 2 or 3 years old.

The Chronicles of Riddick

I just love the scenery, the story and the pacing of the movie. I play this movie on occasion. 2nd close behind is Good Fellas.

I watched the original Star Wars trilogy at least a thousand times when I was a kid.

Excalibur

I watched it over 100 times in the '80s alone, and have watched it many, many times since. In 1985, my high school Humanities teacher didn't believe I had watched it so many times, so he told me to stand at the front of the class and recite the movie from the beginning. Which I did... for about five minutes, until he conceded.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail, mostly during my high school and college years. I don't think I've seen it since the extended theatrical release several years back, though.

I can't tell but it's between Raiders of the Lost Ark and Blade Runner. I watch them yearly several times. Been doing this since they were out on VHS, laserdisc, DVD, and now Blu.

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

This would be a rough guess, but it's probably one of the following:

Jaws
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
The Princess Bride
The Wizard of Oz
Alien

It was Return of the Jedi for many years. The Prequels soured me on watching the Original Trilogy. It's now either Fight Club or the original Superman.

That's awesome. (great movie, too)

Wow, I don't know if I could come up with just one. I'm a big "genre" movie guy---Shaw Brothers and other Hong Kong kung fu, Hammer horror, Universal horror, 50's sci fi, 50's westerns, Hitchcock, spaghetti westerns, Japanese giant monster, Spielberg, etc. I've seen a LOT of movies around 8-10 times, but I don't think I've seen any movie more than 12-15 times.

Maybe Star Wars or 36th Chamber of Shaolin?

Tough one.

Outside of the heavy hitters like Star Wars or BttF, I want to say Braveheart.

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

I've got a handful of "comfort" movies that I'll watch over and over but if I had to guess just one it would be:

The Goonies

I watched it hundreds of times as a kid and I still like to pop it in a few times a year just for old times sake.

Probably It's a Wonderful Life. I try to watch it every year.

I watch Serenity nearly once a year as well, but it's newer.

Probably "Star Wars" (Episode IV: A New Hope) - even though it's mostly going on when I was a lot younger
