In my life I have probably watched the movie "Better off Dead" a couple of thousand times. But recently I was in a phase of putting on "Shaun of the Dead" at night to go to sleep to, and have been doing that every night for the past year or so.

Definitely Clerks. I've watched that movie so often I can practically quote the whole movie.

In the theater, it's Phantom of the Opera (35 times within 10 weeks) with Rocky Horror Picture Show (23 times in a single summer) coming in second.

On VHS/DVD, it's probably Galaxy Quest. When we want a movie to watch during dinner, that's the go-to movie time after time. Never gets old. Probably one of The Best Parodies every written. Love that movie.

I've got to go with Millers Crossing. I just can't get enough. I could watch the opening scene a thousand times in a row and never get bored.

The dialog - to die for, truly epic.

Are you sure? Look in your heart! (Yeah, it is a great movie. Should be better known.)

Jaws - The number of times I've seen this has to be in the hundreds. Seriously. It might even be over a thousand. I can recite it line by line and if I'm flipping through the channels and catch it, I watch it. No matter how far into the movie it is. It's my favoritest movie evah.

Star Wars - See above. :D

The Empire Strikes Back

Monty Python & the Holy Grail

There are probably others, and I'm sure they'll come to me as soon as I hit reply. :D

I love watching The Road to El Dorado every now and then, it's a cute animated movie which isn't necessarily meant just for kids. It makes me smile, which I like. :)

I also find myself watching The Plague Dogs every six months or so, since it's such a good movie -- and definitely not for kids, even though it's also animated.

Oh, and The Dark Knight is a great flick which I make a point to re-watch whenever I'm in need of narrative inspiration.

Ghostbusters and Titanic. I watch a little bit of both everytime I see them on.

I'm not going to see Titanic 3D though. I can't see spending that much money on something I've already seen-- now if they just showed from the time they hit the iceberg to the end in 3D (and charged 2/3 less) I'd be there :)

When my husband and I were first married, our apartment didn't get any tv reception and the only dvd we owned was Fellowship of the Rings, extended version. We probably watched it 20 times. LOTR quotes became part of our every day conversation.

I may have just fallen a little more in love with you :D

If it wasn't so long, it would def have become my most watched movie, but since having kids, I just don't have the time to watch it as much unless I stay up until 2 am every time I watch it (extended version of course, cause how can you watch it any other way?) and having to get up early with said kids, it's just too hard. :( I mean our twin daughter's names are Arwen and Lorien LOL Fan much?

In an actual theatre, it is definitely The Rocky Horror Picture Show. When I was a teen in a small town, that was just what we did Saturdays at midnight. Starting my sophomore year in high school and going thru my senior year so, taking time off for the occasional party and/or vacation, I'd estimate well over a hundred times. And, y'know, I ain't seen it in twenty years nor do I have any desire to ever see it again.

I must have watched the South Park film at least fifty times in my teens. There wasn't much else to do way out in the boondocks aside from making explosives and detonating said explosives. Plus, there's something special about watching Saddam in a musical number. Can't quite put my finger on it.

04-14-2012, 04:43 AM
John Carpenter's Halloween
Titanic

These are my two favourite films of all time--in that order. And I have seen both of them probably an equal amount of times, I suppose. But, I shit you not, I can watch these films in my mind, word-for-word and shot-for-shot. I have seen them so many times, it's unreal. Probably almost hitting the one-thousand mark, I'd estimate.

I can't even guess how many times I've seen Star Wars: A New Hope. I used to work at a theater, and when the special editions came out I probably saw it close to 20 times. And that's not counting all the times I just sat and watched it during my shifts! I love the rest of the films in the series (yes, even Episode 1), but the original is just a timeless classic to me.

Jurassic Park and Jaws. Over and over and over again...

Jcomp
04-14-2012, 05:33 PM
Given that I spent one summer in my adolescence waking up and watching The Empire Strikes Back first thing every morning, I'll probably go with that one.

In adulthood, it's either Ocean's 11 or Swingers.

cmi0616
04-14-2012, 07:28 PM
It's probably a toss-up between The Departed, 2 Days In Paris, and Space Jam (literally the only movie I would watch up until the age of about 10)

Those are really the only movies I've ever watched more than once. Have seen them close to ten times a piece and am still not tired of them. Am somewhat ashamed to confess so.

angeluscado
04-15-2012, 08:17 AM
Probably a tie between Mary Poppins and Wizard of Oz. I love both of those movies. Closely following those would probably be the first two Mummy movies and Hocus Pocus.

Susan Littlefield
04-15-2012, 08:58 AM
I've seen When Harry Met Sally at least a hundred times, I'm sure....:D

Oh, and for several years, I watched Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory ]every holiday season. I haven't seen it the last few years.

Love It's a Wonderful Life too. It's also another holiday favorite.

The Sound of Music.

I used to watch it every year with family, and I've watched it a bunch of times on my own. I just can't get enough of that movie--I even listen to the soundtrack and watch cast interviews or read articles about it.

Dave Hardy
04-17-2012, 07:08 PM
I would have to say the two films I've watched the most were Tron & Young Frankenstein.

Back in 1985 I was a midshipman in NROTC. I ended up spending the better part of a week in the terminal at NAS Sigonella waiting for space on a flight going to the USS Nimitz. There was a TV and it showed two movies, Tron and Young Frankenstein, one after the other, all day long, without pause. My duffel bag was limited on reading matter. Even Stars & Stripes was interesting after a while.

The movie I've watched the most of my own free will is probably Pulp Fiction.

I don't know which movie I've watched the most per say but it is probably somewhere close in this order:

Star Wars/Empire/Return
Die Hard(the best Christmas movie ever)
Terminator 2: Judgment Day
The Lord of the Rings(all 3)
The Bourne Identity
Harry Potter
The Matrix
Indiana Jones(Lost Ark/Crusade/Doom)
Major League
The Mummy
Princess Bride
Shawshank Redemption
Back to the Future(all 3)


Two of my favorite movies that I've watched numerous times but not enough would be (Silence of the Lambs & The Usual Suspects.)

Maze Runner
04-18-2012, 12:29 AM
I've definitely ruined some movies for myself- know the lines before they're spoken I've watched them so many times. Some are not even great movies, but they make me feel a certain way... American Beauty, Raging Bull, Shampoo, Tony Rome, The Big Chill, The Graduate, Ocean's 11 (1960), Save the Tiger, Pal Joey, I could go on---- but hey, this is MY sickness not yours-

DreamWeaver

Big Trouble in Little China! Hands down one of my fav movies.

Also:

Kung Fu Panda. Monkey/Viper shipper here. *waves shippy flag*

Doctor Strange: The Sorcerer Supreme (2007). Huge fan of Dr. Strange since I've been big enough to hold comics in my wee!finny-hands. Okayokay, also, my first fictional crush. This animated movie received mixed reviews and wasn't a faithful adaptation from the comics and I don't care!

probably Shrek, (bec its on a lot and i love it) but Blazing Saddles is a contender.

but if i owned a video. dvd store prob a lot of Humphrey Bogart and Laurel and Hardy. But it's pretty rare i watch a movie more than once.

yeah, reading through, most i've seen more than once. someone mentioned The Lost Boys, yeah watch that whenever its on.

in short, i'm not a film person too much.

just thinking about it. my tv watching is 80% comedy, 10% documentary and 10% the rest, including film.

Washington Square (the 1949 version with Olivia De Haviland and Montgomery Clift, not the inferior 1997)
Dodsworth (love Sinclair Lewis)
Shadow of a Doubt

I've played Pirates of the Caribbean most. I loved it so much that I basically memorized it, which eventually led to it being soothing but non-distracting background noise for me when I was on deadline, so every day for about a year.

WATCHED might be that one or Shawshank Redemption. I've watched a few others a LOT, but I think those are my top two.

Star Wars (the first three movies)

Do you see an 80's movie theme running here?

Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Jaws
Just about every James Bond film.

It's impossible to say which one I've watched the most.

And how could I forget Airplane?? I LOVE that film. I know I've seen it at least 20 times. I still laugh all the way through. Oh, and Police Academy, Porkies, Ghostbusters, Goldmember, Caddyshack and the list goes on...

Monty Python's Life of Brian. I was away from civilisation for a while and we only had 3 videos to choose from. That was one of them. Practically knew the whole script backwards.

Debbie Does Dallas probably comes a close second (no pun intended). Not recently, though.

Geek time. Loved Gamera (the reboot from the 90's and not the original from the 60's). Solid music and editing. The final fight shot linking the girl to the monster--and yes, that's Steven Seagal's daughter!--is a very nice touch.

Also Ironman (the first one) and a classic, The Mummy, with Boris Karloff. It's slowly paced but very atmospheric, and the makeup, while old-fashioned, is strikingly realistic and was way ahead of its time.

Hoop Dreams- over a dozen times.
Singin' in the Rain- huge favorite that always cheers me up.
Evil Dead 1 and 2 never get old, same with Monty Python.
Edgar Wright's films (and DPACED) maaany times.
Beyond the Valley of the Dolls
Die Hard
I love Hitchcock, but Rear Window, Strangers on a Train and North by Northwest
are the ones I revisit.
I also revisit Buster Keaton a lot, especially the shorts and The Cameraman.

The Dark Crystal (according to my parents, I wore out several VHS tapes before the age of 6. I can still recite every word even without the movie going... favorite movie ever.)
Labyrinth
The Princess Bride
The Fifth Element
The Neverending Story
Dagon
Nightbreed
The Secret of NIMH
The Last Unicorn (I know I wore 1 tape of this)
the Rankin/Bass animated version of The Hobbit
Star Wars (obviously ;) )
Laura

So many more. I watch movies over and over if I love them. :)

Casablanca.

Every time I see it, my admiration for it increases, from writing to directing to performances.

I have seen The Princess Bride a slightly silly number of times.

Also Galaxy Quest, for some reason.

Big Trouble in Little China. No idea why, but I've seen it dozens of times and I still enjoy it.

The Godfather part II, I'm dumb and had no idea what was going on throughout the movie, and I had no idea what all the hype was about. So i had to watch it so many more times to figure out what was happening.

The Kenneth Branagh version of Henry V.

It's my comfort movie.

I think I have seen Pink Floyd The Wall at least a hundred times. I was obsessed with that film for a couple of years. The Shawshank Redemption comes in a close second. I will almost literally drop whatever I'm doing if I see that it's on.

Thunder Road w/ Robert Mitchum. I saw it the first time in a drive-in in '59 or thereabouts. Lots of rubber burned leaving the theater that night. Weak script, mostly bad acting (except for Mitchum), but oh, those souped-up 50s cars. And the two theme songs.

Goonies, by far. One summer as a kid we moved, and I didn't know anybody. But I had a VCR with a single movie on it. I watched it over and over and over. Kinda sad, really.

Off the top of my head, I'd say:

Jurassic Park - I love The Lost World too, but JP is my comfort movie. I watch it when I'm sick, feeling shitty, etc. Or if I see it on TV. Or just because. Yes I am totally going to see it next year when it rereleases in the theater in 3D.

The Lost World - as I mentioned, also a favorite, but I don't think I've watched it nearly as many times. I liked the book better.

The Lion King - my absolute favorite Disney movie and the only one I've bothered to buy on Blu-ray.

Those three have probably been watched more than anything else mostly by virtue of the fact that they've been around a lot longer than some of my other favorites. I still enjoy them though.

Tough question but . . .

Grosse Point Blank, Star Wars, John Carpenter's The Thing, and Galaxy Quest are definitely up there.

Aliens, Blues Brothers and (since it's the greatest film ever made) Night of the Living Dead.

In a theater: Invasion USA. I was in a bad mood when that came out and I saw it about half a dozen times in three days. Watching a lot of stuff get blown up helped.

At home: Kelly's Heroes, Monster's Inc, the last Rambo

Man, many of the "rerun" movies that have been already mentioned I've watched over and over!

I've also lost track at how many times I've watched Some Like It Hot, Grumpy Old Men, Baby Boom and The Family Stone (love Diane Keaton).

And of course, there's always...

A Hard Day's Night. Hey, I am a Beatlemaniac after all! :D

Field of Dreams or The Big Lebowski. There was a time, the first time I went to college, that I would watch Lebowski at least once a week. Sometimes a couple of times a week

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by far, I think I've seen it about 30 times. There were times I would even just put it up in the background, lol. That movie always made me happy.

Also, Aladdin. And The Matrix.

Probably Deep Blue Sea...not for any real reason. But it used to be my go-to background noise, so it would play while I did whatever else. Repeatedly. For like three months.

AVS

Great lists.

For me:

Alien
Aliens
The Searchers
Jaws
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Terminator
Casablanca
Jurassic Park
The Matrix
The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring
Shawshank Redemption
The Godfather

I'm sure there are more. However it's not quite the same as favourite movies, some of those are too unsettling or downright depressing to watch many times.

Oh, Ghostbusters, easily.
Also, Subspecies.
Labyrinth.
Ditto on the Universals, especially Dracula and The Mummy.
And the three big 80's slashers (Halloween, F13, A Nightmare on Elm Street)
And Night of the Comet.

...and G.I. Joe, and I don't wanna hear a thing about it, except maybe a consanguineous call of, "I was once a man!"

...was once...

...a man...

*slithers off to watch Subspecies again*

"Diner". I watched it in a movie theater when it was first released in 1982. Since then I've watched it countless times after purchasing my own copy -- first on VHS, then on DVD.

I think it's a tie between The African Queen and The Quiet Man.

Close seconds: Vanishing Point, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Dog Day Afternoon

It's either Blast From the Past or Conan the Barbarian. Runners up would be The Time Machine and Journey to the Center of the Earth (original with Mason).

12-23-2013, 03:33 AM
Of the following I have lost track of how many times I've watched them.

Casablanca
The Maltese Falcon
Wizard of Oz
Creature from the Black Lagoon
Dracula (original)
Frankenstein
Heck, any and all of the universal horror monsters
Raiders of the Lost Arc
Blade
The Thing from another World
Them!
Forbidden Planet
And now my mind has gone blank but I'm sure there are dozens more.

I am going to have to agree with Shadow Ferret on some of those listed and add some even older flicks I still watch when ever they are on even though I have seen them dozens of times already.

Just about any John Wayne Movie, but especially those directed by John Ford, such as...
They Were Expendable.
She Wore a Yellow Ribbon,
and Fort Apache.

I also have seen The Quiet Man and Donovan's Reef dozens of times.

Other films that I constantly watch when I can,
Lord Jim,
Lawrence of Arabia,
White Christmas,
Its a Wonderful Life,
Charlie Brown Christmas,
Hiladago,

And like Shadow Ferret, there are many others I am drawing a blank on that I have seen dozens and dozens of time, some old, some new, that I can not just remember at this time...

Inky
12-23-2013, 03:58 AM
thothguard51 's post reminded me of Lawrence of Arabia. Once a year. Great movie.
Shared it with my daughters, last year. They really enjoyed it.

The Breakfast Club

I love this thread, makes me realise I need to see a Marx Bros movie again. And some Monty Python.

One I watch every time it comes on telly is the Aussie comedy The Castle. Always makes me laugh. Good enough for the pool room.

To triceratops,

YES to the James Mason version of Journey to...

I have it saved on my computer--could never find the DVD and I don't know if they ever put one out. Lotsa fun, and guess where good ol' Stevey S. got his ideas from? (Also from 20000 Leagues Under the Sea which coincidentally starred James Mason). Loved that flick ever since I was a kid.

Despicable Me (the first one) is stellar. Opening song sets the tone...funny all the way.

Man Hunt with Walter Pidgeon. Great flick. Also treated myself to Ball of Fire as I loved Barbara Stanwyck.

Chris P
12-23-2013, 01:00 PM
Probably either Monty Python and the Holy Grail or the original Star Wars movies.

It's probably "Diner". I first watched it in a theater when it came out in 1982, then I bought a VHS copy and watched it a few times a year, then I bought it on DVD and still watch it at least twice every year.

angeliz2k

Like, all-time? Probably Lion King or Beauty and the Beast. I was obsessed with them when I was little. Practically wore right through the VHS ribbon.

K.B. Parker
12-24-2013, 06:21 AM
I didn't come out of this experience deranges (somehow) but what follows is a true story...

A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors.

I've seen the movie at least a hundred times, and I wouldn't hesitate to raise that number by at least another hundred. It was my childhood movie. I was terrified of Freddy Krueger, but couldn't stop watching it. I watched it AT LEAST 3-4 times a month as a child.

Jett.
12-24-2013, 07:14 AM
Star Wars original trilogy
Aliens

and a string of more or less embarrassing titles that we recorded with our first VCR and used to watch over and over when I was as a kid:

Asterix e le 12 fatiche / The Twelve Tasks of Asterix (1976)
Asterix e Cleopatra (1968)
Freaky Friday (1976)
Parent Trap (1961)
Not with My Wife, You Don't! (1966)
Operation Petticoat (1959)

Breakfast at Tiffany's
Home Alone (1 and 2)
The Nightmare Before Christmas
Hocus Pocus
Heartbreakers (I have a massive girl crush on Jennifer Love Hewitt)
Pitch Perfect (Okay so it's not a fancy classic, but the songs!!)

These are the ones that come to mind right now.. I don't watch a lot of movies but the ones I do, I watch over and over and over....and over.

Blade Runner (I prefer the original, with semi-noir voiceover), with Alien/Aliens as runners-up.

Films I try and catch when they're repeated on TV;

Tremors
Black Hawk Down
I, Robot
