Open Thread: What Movie Have You Watched The Most?

For this weekend’s open thread, we thought we’d keep things simple and ask you an easy question: What movie have you watched the most? Was it The Wizard of Oz, The Empire Strikes Back, Casablanca, Roman Holiday, etc? In the comments below, share with us what fantastic flick you have seen the most, and share some reasons why with us. There are no wrong answers here, just movie memories that last a lifetime!

    Hard for me to say. There are several I’ve watched dozens of times. “Big Trouble in Little China” & “Escape From New York” , two great John Carpenter directed Kurt Russell vehicles rank up there. My favorite John Wayne movie “El Dorado” might count as the most, however, but I never got to see the whole movie until I got the DVD. I watched it numerous times on TV, but I almost always passed out before the end when I did. (I used to be a heavy drinker…) I have seen the whole movie at least a dozen times since I got the DVD.

    I’m not sure which one I have watched most, but I have watched all the following so much that I know the dialogue throughout the whole movie:

    Casablanca
    Rio Bravo
    Stagecoach (39 John Wayne version)
    Tora! Tora! Tora!
    To Kill a Mockingbird
    Schindler’s List
    Winter’s Bone
    True Grit (NEW Hailee Steinfeld version)
    The Best Years of Our Lives
    The Thin Man

    Not one movie but a group, the Hope/Crosby ‘Road’ films. Virtually know them by heart but still laugh, time after time. They are, bar the last of the series, sheer comic genius. I’ll never tire of them.

    Dr. Strangelove. The one liners are funny every time I see the movie. Casablanca is also great to watch over and over.

    It’s either: “Airplane” -or- “Dances with Wolves” { The Director’s Cut. } -or- “The Wizard of Oz” -or- “Casablanca” -or- “Forrest Gump” -or- “Key Largo” -or- “The Manchurian Candidate” -or- “The Trouble with Harry”-or- “Blazing Saddles”. I watch each of these at least once a year.

    I can’t just pick one, but I have four: The Princess Bride, Casablanca, 2001:A Space Odyssey or Streets Of Fire. Plus my Christmas Eve movie every year is Die Hard.

    A toss up between “The Roaring Twenties”, “Casablanca”, “She Wore a Yellow Ribbon” and “The Seachers”…

    2001: A Space Odyssey. Saw my hometown premiere in a theater long since gone. Even if I chance upon its broadcast I’ll stay in place through the end credits. It’s not nostalgia.

    The Third Man, To Kill a Mockingbird or North by Northwest

    “The Big Sleep.” It is my current favorite movie of all-time and a put on the I-pad to fall asleep current favorite as well. The dialogue is unparalleled and the plot complexity takes numerous watches to follow. I loved the dialogue so much I didn’t really try to follow the plot on the first several watches. “Fletch” I can just about quote from beginning to end.

    I have watched the original King Kong 163 times in the last 50 years
