The five movies you've watched the most times.

Inspired by a tweet a couple of days ago that everyone I follow responded to. Use your best estimating skills.

1. Star Wars
2. The Empire Strikes Back
3. Return of the Jedi
4. The Phantom Menace
5. Attack of the Clones

Hope yours is different.

I don't want to get eaten alive
To be eaten alive
Eaten alive
I don't ever want to be
Eaten alive

1. Purple Rain

2. Under the Cherry Moon

3. Grease

4. Un conte de Noël

5. In Bruges

Those last two are my favorite Christmas films which I watch every holiday season so that's why they are on the list.

Smokey And The Bandit
Enter The Dragon
Car Wash (The theatrical version, not the TV edit which is somewhat different. Like the TV version has Danny DeVito who is not in the original edit at all.)
The Red Balloon (I guess this is more a short film)
Ferris Bueller's Day Off

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

1. Ghostbusters 1 & 2
Always watched them together so they are about equal.

2. Back to the Future trilogy
Same as Ghostbusters, if I watch one, I have to watch them all.

3. Robocop
You know I had a weird childhood when Robocop is one of my most watched movies.

4. Home Alone
I've watched it at least once every Christmas for the past 25 years. Then again, the same can be said of Trading Places and Scrooged but for the purposes of the list, I'll go with Home Alone.

5. Rocky Horror Picture Show
It is either this or Grease. I've been in several stage productions of each and every time I do them, I watch the movies.

damn almost impossible to tell... most likely the blockbusters from my youth, which I still own on some dusty old outworn VHS copies grandpa


Raiders of the Lost Ark/Indiana Jones & Last Crusade

Star Wars 77
Back To The Future 1

(before 2+3 came out I already had watched part 1 many many times, so this must still be in the lead, cause I never watched 2 or 3 alone without 1)
Star Trek II Wrath Of Khan
any Monty Python flic, with Meaning Of Life most likely being the leader



some other possible contenders: Jaws... Toy Story... Die Hard... all Eddie Murphy 80s shit 48 hours, Coming To America, Trading Places, Beverly Hills Cop 1... Ghostbusters 1 (never cared for part 2 that much)... Purple Rain could be up there too of course but I simply don't know

By views alone it's PROBABLY:

CITY LIGHTS
A BUCKET OF BLOOD
AFTER HOURS
DAWN OF THE DEAD
BILL & TED'S BOGUS JOURNEY/DISCO GODFATHER

....cause I've lost count on those last two. TAPEHEADS fell out of rotation once i relocated so, i guess maybe I'm not as chipper as i used to be

This list IS counting STAR WARS.....

They're all pretty horrible if you think about it. Save 4,5,6... last one was funny -ish but almost a riff on fans. A turd in their direction. TFA being the absolute nadir

thinking longer, 'clockwork orange', 'tremors' and 'heat' might edge out any of those not 'breakfast club', except 'breaking away'.

beyond the valley of the dolls
evil dead
fargo
alien
2001 maniacs


i must have watched evil dead & 2001 maniacs about a dozen times back when i worked in a small town while paying off my student loans in the 90s. we had one or two small video stores, limited selection, & i was happy to watch them again & again.

beyond... has to be in the mix for me as well. i'm less certain of the other two, but they definitely would be somewhere near the top.

Mad Max II (The Road Warrior).....a gazillion times. I know every single line that´s spoken by every single character in that movie. lol

-

Conan the Barbarian (1982, with Arnold) I still love every second of this movie. A masterpiece !

.

Rocky I, II and III,and VI , but I think I watched I and II the most, though I also love II and VI a lot.

I don´t want to count them separately because it´s Rocky. wink

.

Purple Rain....or Sign o the Times. Not really sure which one I watched the most. Probably SOTT. Helped me get through some really, really bad times when I was in my early 20s. Eternally grateful to Prince.

-

The Godfather .....all parts, including III. Come on , it´s a family saga...can´t just like only one part.

.

.

I´ve also watched Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, Mad Max part I, Beat Street and Bitter Moon very, very often but not as often as those movies above.

Sorry, but limiting it to just five is really difficult.

Dawn of the Dead remake or original?

And if you say original......how did you like the remake?

Not a single Arnold Schwarzenegger movie on your list? Come on! wink

.

Personally, I never really liked him during his heyday but I love, love, love Conan the Barbarian and Terminator pt.I

I´m probably also the only person on earth who doesn´t mind Conan part II (The Destroyer).

But other than that I never really liked his big blockbuster movies.

Oh, I absolutely love those.

I was probably thinking of more boring but wellknown movies such as True Lies.

But, now that I think about it, he´s probably made more movies that I like than dislike.

Come to think of it, I guess the ones I don´t like are probably just six or seven, compared to maybe nine or ten that I really like.

I don´t know.....at some point he just got on my nerves but he´s made some really enjoyable movies and the older he gets, the more I like him. It´s just the early to mid 90s or even 00s that I dislike.

Running Man and Total Recall were pretty good.

Commando was good.

Predator was great.

But his comedies sucked big time, and I never got into True Lies.

The Incredibles (2004)

Wallace & Gromit: The Curse Of The Were-Rabbit (2005)

I can't list 5 movies. These 2 have so much replay value to me. I consider them near-perfect masterpieces. Regular movies annoy me too much: most are thinly-veiled propaganda filled with snoozeworthy Hollywood-isms.

I love True Lies. He has some great one liners in that movie but it's Bill Paxton who really steals the show.
