I've seen Army Of Darkness over 150 times (hey! What else you gonna put on in the video store every day, Steel Magnolias?!?)
2nd place is Star wars at 130-something (mostly in the theatre),
3rd is Enter The Dragon at just over 100 (again, mostly in the theatre).

I had a lot of disposable income as a teenager.

I've seen LotR FotR about 200 times. I didn't have a t.v. antenna for a year and could only watch dvds. I supplemented my LotR viewing with Buffy season 1-4, which I have probably watched about 15 times each. I'm working on watching my Fireflies an obscene amount of times and I'm thinking I better buy a backup set just in case.

Hmmm. I'm not sure what the total number is but I've rewatched Casablanca like it was going out of style. It started with a grainy VHS copy I made years ago when we first got a VCR, continued with a purchased VHS, and now I've got it on DVD .

I never made the connection before but there are similarities between Whedon's dialogue and some of the great stuff that was being put out in the thirties and forties.

I usually put on one of several 8-hour Deep Space Nine marathon tapes when I go to sleep.

I couldn't tell you how many times I've watched something over and over, but...

Return of the Jedi (old version) is up there.

High Fidelity and Free Enterprise is up there.

Dark City for a while was up there.

Getting back to DS9... Trials & Tribbulations, and By the Pale Moonlight I've seen lots and lots of times.

Important people don't do field work.


When I was a kid I saw Fright Night so many times that my mother grew to like, hate it, like it, then forbid it...but not before I taped it on audiotape and listened to it before I went to bed at night...is that weird? Don't answer that.

I saw Ghostbusters in the theater 13 times. Everytime we went to the theater, is was just the better movie. I've seen it countless times since.

I'll be back with more...I had just typed a huge, huge list, but I managed to erase it all...So, back...

wel now. TV ep? that would be Buffy- Once More With Feeling (and who hasnt seen that a ridiculous ammount of times)

movie. hmmm. I'm going to have to go with Empire Strikes Back. Jeezus. i dont know how many times ive seen it. Well over 200 times im sure. Starting back in 1979 when it was first shown (yes i know it was 1980 that everyone seems to say it was but i am DAMN certain i saw it in 79. my brother had not been born yet.he was born in 1980, and my mother was not pregnant at the time.) I've seen that movie so many times I used to replay the dialogue while running the floor sweeper at the factory i used to work at. i had the flu real bad one year and watched it with a 115 degree temp. i was of course delerious. i kept seeing the characters in the film as friends and family. I was Han Solo.

craziness.

just craziness.

Regardless of your apparent temporal distortions, Empire came out May 23, 1980. I was at the Loew's Astor Plaza theatre in Manhattan for the first show!
Maybe you're thinkin' of when you saw the trailer? It came out in theatres summer-fall of 1979. Or maybe a test screening?

Wow, tough to say, because I don't keep count. I probably have seen Gone With The Wind 15 times, Lord of the Rings (all three) and It's a Wonderful Life at least 10.

TV shows, Once More With Feeling at least 10 times and Smile Time about the same.

And I have no idea how many times I've seen Firefly. Won't admit it even to myself. :)

I'm going to have to go with "Casablanca", like Soupcatcher. When I was a kid (before cable, satellite, etc.), that movie used to be played as the late movie ALL THE TIME. I probably saw it a bazillion times just when it was broadcast on tv. I hadn't seen it on much in the past 15 or so years, though (which is a real shame because, hello - classic), so I bought the VHS back then and have watched it 3-4 times a year since then. My tape is still in amazingly decent shape, considering, so I haven't replaced it with the dvd yet. Soon though.

The Paper. That movie is the best example ever of comic timing. I put it in the other day to find CSI's Gary Dourdan, who it turns out is walking around with dreds in the background of most shots, and discovered that my tape is almost done for. I think it's time I invested in a DVD copy.

I became a reporter in part because that movie made it look like fun. Turns out, not so much.

Terry raises her hand and confesses to audio taping favorite shows - well, certain episodes, anyway. I think it started when I bought the LP (yes, the dark ages) of the 1968 movie Romeo and Juliet. It had dialog on it and kinda hooked me on the concept. I still have half a dozen tapes on the bedroom bookshelf, with my Walkman that hasn't given out yet.

Battle Beyond the Stars.

Sure, it's B, but I liked it.. still do.

Used to come on about once a month when I was younger and the networks apparently didn't have much else to run, and I watched it every time.

And of course, I "get the joke".
(it's based on Seven Samauri, which was what Magnificent Seven is based on, hence, the name of the planet.)

Ironically Vaughn plays almost the exact same character in both movies - LOVED his speech about how all his money was worthless cause he couldn't show his face to spend it.

Chrisisall,

So, how many threads have you started now? :-) Are you writing a book, doing research for a thesis?

But I'll bite - Out of Gas is my most recent multiple rewatching. I taped it as I watched the first run, immediately rewound it and watched it again as soon as it was over. I think I watched it 4 more times before the weekend was over.

I kept my Firefly tapes in the bedroom and watched before I went to bed for over a year after it was cancelled... rewound and started over every couple of weeks. :-) I haven't loved a show that much since Blakes 7.

Another would be the Highlander 2-parter Rev 6:8 and Comes a Horseman. Duncan begging for Methos' life - doesn't get any angstier. Is angstier a word?

And the last episode of Blakes 7 - I know it by heart.

Terry

Mal and crew could use Vila around, to finesse the locks. Explosives are so crude in comparison. LOL.

The only LC song I know is Hallelujah and the version by Rufus Wainwright is always in my top ten (usually #1) favorites.

I don't read FF fic for some reason. Maybe because it's hard for writers to capture anything close to Joss's style of dialog. But I like B7 fic.

First one up has this as its second stanza:
I'm guided by a signal in the heavens
I'm guided by this birthmark on my skin
I'm guided by the beauty of our weapons.
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin.
[...]
I don't like your fashion business mister
And I don't like these drugs that keep you thin
I don't like what happened to my sister
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin.

Well, count me in on the audio taping of TV shows. I used to tape Buck Rogers in the 25th Century when I was a kid 'cause it was on past my bedtime .

I've watched Slingblade (with Billy Bob Thorton and John Ritter) and Disney's Lion King (lots funnier when you've had a coupla wobbly pops) at least a dozen times each. The first disc of Firefly at least that many times too.

Sorry I don't subscribe to the Buffy series. Never liked whatsherface. Angel wasn't bad but never grabbed my attention with ferocity of a staving pitbull like Firefly did. Army of Darkness I watched when it came out originally and thought it was good, but not good enough to inspire me to watch it repetitively. Besides, when you have kids, you have to be....choosey..about what you watch, so it's what ever you can squeeze in between their bedtime and ours.

I've been thinking about this and I realized I left off some movies.

Back in the day Iwatched Breakfast Club all the time. My parents got me hooked on Rocky Horror, who knows how many times I've seen that. Disney's Beauty and the Beast and The Aristocats. The Fifth Element and Galaxy Quest are my space fix. My Fair Lady. Toby Tyler. Pretty much every musical that has ever danced across the screen has danced across my TV at least 20 times. That's a lot of Merman.

As for TV...I was a latch key kid. I grew up with the TV as my friend. I've seen all the great shows, over and over and over. Gilligan, Brady, Donna Reed, Patty Duke, 54, Monkees, Hillbillies repeatedly. Every episode is etched into my brain...poor brain. The one episode I've seen more than any other? The Corbomite Maneuver.

Keep the Shiny side up


Got to be Blazing Saddles and Fifth Element.

Whenever the world gets just a bit too PC for me, Blazing Saddles goes in the player (so you can imagine it gets quite a workout).

I find something new every time I watch Fifth Element. Maybe just some little thing in the background that makes it more of a real world. And I love the score.

You know that Limp Bizkit line: "I've seen the Fight Club about 28 times."? Well I've seen it far more than that. Dont ask for a precise number cos I've lost count.
I've also seen Plan 9 from Outer Space so many times I almost know it word for word (ditto Fight Club actually). Same goes for the first ep of Red Dwarf.
As much as I love Firefly I barely get a chance to watch it cos I'm always lending it out to people. I really should get a second box set.

If you _listen_ to many tv shows or movies, you start to like some actors just for their voices. Ron Perlman (Beauty and the Beast) Gareth Thomas (Blakes 7) most any Trek actor... Welsh accents are the best! Peter Wingfield (HL Methos) is Welsh, I think and if the last new Dr Who isn't, then he should be. :-) note: looked Christopher Ecclestone up in imdb - and he's from Lancashire - not Wales but still, a very nice accent...

Crossing Jordan is good too, although it's mostly listening from the couch with a book in my hand.

I too used to audio tape Star Trek off the television! My favorite episodes to listen to were The Apple (Yeeeeah, BROTHER!), and This Side of Paradise (..."right next to the DOG-FACED BOY!!"). Heh. Fun, innocent times.

As far as movies? The original Star Wars in 1977 - twenty-seven times in the theatre. Friends kept taking me because they didn't believe I could recite the whole movie. Of course, they always ended up shushing me twenty minutes into the picture because, hey, annoying! But I still got to see it many, many times so I didn't care.

The Little Mermaid, at least 40 or 50 times on video. Hey! I got kids! ;)

If I want some eye candy I throw in American Outlaws. Hot men, and I love westerns...just fluff but I love it.

Have seen Emma about 15 or 16 times, and Run Lola Run about that many too...

Television: Big word to whomever talked about Once More, With Feeling. It's insane the number of times I've watched that. Also, both seasons of Deadwood- first one on dvd and second on tape because it isn't out yet- a ridiculous amount of time, but I just love it so. It's absolutely brilliant.

We have to start a 'I audio-taped Trek' support group! I never thought so many did that,too!
Arena, City on the Edge of Forever, Amok Time, This Side of Paradise, and Shore Leave were my most listened to eps, although at one time I think I had almost the whole 79 eps on tape!
I had to shush everyone in the house weekdays at 6pm to 7pm for months, my parents thought i was crazy!!

I'm still twenty years old. Look at you, you're an old man Chrisisall

I have an issue w/Seven. As soon as he saw her head, he shoulda fired! No thinkin', nothin' matters, just animal reaction. He paused too long, and that one little thing ruined the movie (for me).
Desperado's up there for me, too. Sometimes I watch it just to hear the soundtrack.

But you had to do it the hard way Chrisisall

Hey Terryo,

I'm with you on Blakes 7 - the final episode of that is my favorite hour of filmed entertainment. I've probably seen it 50 times, and can recite the whole show by memory. I finally got sick of waiting for a region 1 release of B7 on DVD, so I got a regio free player and have been watching season 1 again - damn, this show holds up well!

Following that, I would have to go with "Once More With Feeling". That episode of Buffy inspired me to learn guitar, and now I can play and sing all the songs from it!

So why can't we get people to watch this show? You have to think that anyone who liked Mal and crew would enjoy the dysfunctional future of Blakes 7.

Makes us special, doesn't it? :-)

I love the opening scene where Avon is talking about his new figurehead and the look on Vila's face.

VILA It's Blake, isn't it? You think you've found Blake. [Avon turns away and smiles.]

I don't know why I can't get more people to watch it - I keep telling people about all the influence it has on Joss' work, (Spike's chip, Angel's finale, all of Firefly) but it is an uphill battle. Ah well, I guess we are the special ones!

I have deliberately avoided watching B7 for the last 3-4 years, since I have been waiting to watch it in order when I got the DVDs. I kept expecting it to be less than I remembered, but the show really holds up well! (Amazing what good writing and acting will do for a show - are you listening, Hollywood? No, I thought not....)
