I can tell you this... the movie I have seen more times than any other is Enter the Dragon... literally more than a hundred times... maybe two hundred.

a close second would be 2001: A Space Odyssey... then it probably The Good The Bad The Ugly

Any Star Trek movie. The original SW trilogy. The Back to the Future trilogy. So I've Married an Axe Murderer. The first Matrix. Total Recall (1990). Actually outside of his later movies (including his preggo movie) I could watch any Arnie movie over and over. So many others but these will suffice.

Most if not all of the movies that I've seen at least 10 times have been listed, but regardless they are:

Pulp Fiction
Heat
Silence of the Lambs
Star Was Trilogy (original trilogy, original versions)
Goodfellas
Alien/Aliens
Fight Club
Raider of the Lost Ark (Good God I can't wait for the blu-ray release!)
2001: ASO
Ben Hur
The Godfather
Dazed and Confused
Good Will Hunting
Space Balls
Monty Python & THG
The Dark Knight
Most of the Bond movies
Where Eagles Dare
High Plains Drifter
Austin Powers
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
The Breakfast Club
The Matrix
Back To The Future
Planet of the Apes (Charlton Heston)
Ghostbusters
Die Hard
Inception
Se7en

I know it's a long list, but I can usually watch a really good film 10 -15 times before I start getting tired of it. Ask me how many movies I've seen 20 - 30 times and the list will get considerably shorter.

I will watch Shawshank Redemption and To Kill A Mockingbird whenever they are on TV, not matter at which point I enter in on. I will always just stay there and watch until the end, regardless of what else is going on. Have done it with both , too numerous to count accurately.

I saw most of these 10 times or more before I even owned my first car. Each one came on TV about once a year and I can still watch them again and again. I had a great interest in war movies as a kid, being an Air Force brat who's Dad had flown in almost every bomber made from WWII B-17's to Cold War B-52's.

Twelve O'Clock High
The Longest Day
Strategic Air Command
Midway
The Great Escape
Tora! Tora! Tora!

Most other repeat movies are already listed but here's my short list:

The Thin Red Line
Pearl Harbour
The Last Samurai
Saving Private Ryan
Pretty Woman
How to Train Your Dragon
Serenity (I just loved the TV series "Firefly" and own both on BD)
Marley & Me

I rewatched The Joy Luck Club tonight for what I'm sure is at least the 10th time, and I feel like I've been run over. I swear I was crying before the credits were over and basically never stopped the whole time. That is such a brutal movie. One of those that is well worth repeated viewing but you just can't take it too often.

My favourite movies are not necessarily movies that I have watched the most. The movies that I have watched the most simply happened to have been movies I really enjoyed at a time when I had time to enjoy them. The fact that I could enjoy them so many times means they technically should be my favourites.

I've seen:
Oliver! (1965) at least 50 times, once a day everyday during school holidays hohoho
The Ten Commandments - pretty much watch that one every year around Easter
Santa Claus (1985) - have to see this around Christmas along with...
While You Were Sleeping
Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Lion King, Pocahontas, The Emperor's new Groove, Hercules etc. whenever anyone else watches this I have to sit down and join
Bugs Life, Toy Story series, Monsters Inc., etc. same deal as above
The Transformers The Movie
So many of the Jackie Chan movies
Three Men and a Baby, and maybe moreso, Three Men and a little Lady
Sister Acts 1 and 2

Other movies I watched a great deal during school holidays (those VHS tapes did hold up nicely)
The Goonies
The Neverending Story
The Princess Bride
Labyrinth
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
K-9 (1989)
Masters of the Universe

Before I started this post I thought I could keep it under 10, but turns out my childhood got the better of me... and there are probably plenty that I can't recall at this exact moment.

Ten times? Lots. However, there are movies that I'm sure I've watched at least 100 times or more. Some I've seen over 100 times includes the ORIGINAL Star Wars trilogy, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jaws, Animal House, and Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

The list is countless. But in recent years I have had much less time to re-watch movies, so the very very few that are on the list I have watched yet again are...

The Matrix
Ben-Hur
Highlander
Tears of the Sun
Die Hard
Gladiator


There are more, but I've watched those more than once in the past few years.

Watching movies on network tv is a complete waste of time.
Because the movies are edited and rarely shown in there correct aspect ratio.

Network TV never shows Shawshank or Mockingbird. You get those on movie channels and they are not edited and are shown in OAR....

Forgot to add The Right Stuff! Every time it comes on Hdnet I have to watch it, hopefully soon it will be released on BD. Also last film I saw theatrically with intermissions.

That's what makes it interesting. Sometimes they even add a scene here or there. Think Blazing Saddles.

It's also funny when they substitute different words for "profanity", although some channels are more relentless in their substitutions than others. Sometimes it makes the film entirely different like a remake, only with the original cast. tongue.gif

Be seeing you!
