Beverly Hills Cop
Annie Hall
The Naked Gun

Comedy is the thing I find has the least replay value. Punch lines go stale on repeated viewings. Tv comedy is so bad, I haven't watched a sitcom regularly since "Soap" back in the seventies.

Scifi and spy thrillers have the most replay value for me:

2001: A Space Odyssey
Blade Runner
Mission Impossible's
Forbidden Planet
Timecop (guilty pleasure)

...and similar fare.

I honestly have never watched a single movie more than once in my life. If I see it again, its usually by accident, and I don't sit through the whole thing. I have also never re-read the same book more than once? Am I weird? I have purchased fancy BluRay collections with the complete intention of watching them again once I get a 65" or bigger TV though. So I guess I will enter with the movie that I have re-watched CLIPS of more than any other: Gladiator. Simply because it is my black level calibration movie disc. biggrin.gif If you can't easily see the fan design on the table leg in the chapter where he says "I'm terribly vexed", your blacks are crushed.

Oh wait... Star Wars remastered editions with the bonus content were watched once, after seeing the originals. There.... so I HAVE seen a movie more than once, but switch it was so utterly changed, it didn't register in my mind.

There are probably others, but these come to mind:

2001
Alien
Aliens
Star Wars
Empire Strikes Back
Matrix 1 and 2
BTTF
Enter The Dragon
The Incredibles
Toy Story 2
The Animatrix
Zulu
Lawrence of Arabia
Dark Star
The Wrath of Khan
It's a Wonderful Life
Raiders of the Lost Arc
Life of Brian
Holy Grail
Planet of the Apes ('68)
Forbidden Planet
Terminator 2
Godfather 1 & 2

What a bout snippets? I often watch my favourite scenes from certain movies from the HTPC rather than the whole movie, but that would be for another thread...

When I get my new theatre room done, I'll probably watch them all a few more times, including some that I watched a lot in my younger days but can't say for sure if I've seen them 10 time or not (Dark Crystal for example)

Scott Pigrim has probably made it onto my ten times list as of last night. Actually, the more I watch it, the funnier I find it, which is usually the opposite. Also I'd add "Along Came Polly", "Once", and "Vicky Christina Barcelona", and just regular "Barcelona" to my list, and probably Gattaca would be on it as well.

Now there is something I ddin't expect. I am a major Coen Brothers fan, but it took me over ten years to watch Blood Simple a second time after seeing it once. It..just....moves.......so.........slowly!

I will say though that I liked it better the second time, which is true for just about any CB movie (except Burn After Reading - bleh).
