What Movie Have You Seen More Than Five Times?

If you are like most Americans, you see any number of movies. You might see a movie a second, or even a third time, by accident. But five times or more means you really like it. Which are those movies for you?

Share why if you wish.

  1. Let’s see… I’m sure I’ve seen the original Star Wars Trilogy more than five times. Some of the Star Trek movies as well – definitely Wrath of Khan.

    Maybe some of the Bond films. I know I’ve seen Goldfinger more than five times, and there are probably others as well.

    Then there are the family classics. We used to watch The Wizard of Oz every year when I was young, as well as A Christmas Story.

    Marsha suggested that she has seen The Breakfast Club at least five times, and that’s a possibility for me as well. There’s something very watchable about those John Hughes movies, like Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Sixteen Candles, National Lampoon’s Vacation, and so on.

    It strikes me that these are all the visual equivalent of comfort food. While I love seeing new movies, there is something calm and reassuring about seeing a movie you know and love.

  2. 95′ Pride and Prejudice, 95′ Sense and Sensibility and 95′ Persuasion. I’ve watched many of the other adaptations of Austen’s novels more than once, but these are the ones that I’ve watched at least 5 times each.

  3. I love movies and love this question. It’s a great chance to reminisce about many hours of enjoyment. Here’s a sampling:

    – There are many favorite movies of my childhood I saw more than 5 times: the Star Wars movies, the Indiana Jones movies, the Christopher Reeve Superman movies.

    – There were movies on TV every year between Thanksgiving and Christmas every year when I was a kid: Wizard of Oz, Sound of Music, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

    – There are many Christmas movies I see every year or almost every year: It’s a Wonderful Life, the Alister Sim A Christmas Carol, Scrooged, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, The Ref.

    – There are many, many scary movies I watch every year or two leading up to Halloween: the Evil Dead movies, the original Halloween movie, Sleepy Hollow, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Scream, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, Shaun of the Dead, the Guillermo Del Toro Hellboy movies, Silence of the Lambs.

    – The original Universal Monster movies could be there own subcategory considering how often I’ve seen the first Dracula, Frankenstein, Invisible Man, and Wolf Man movies.

    – There are a lot of other classic movies that I’ve seen more than 5 times: Citizen Kane, Casablanca, Bringing Up Baby, His Girl Friday, Singin’ in the Rain, Inherit the Wind, several Marx Brothers movies (Duck Soup, Animal Crackers).

    – There are a lot directors with movies I watch over and over again: Hitchcock (Psycho, North by Northwest, Rear Window), Spielberg (Jaws, Jurassic Park, Minority Report), etc.

    – I’ve seen many, many Marvel and DC movies more than 5 times, including the MCU movies, the Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies, the Christopher Nolan Batman movies, the X-Men Movies, the first Deadpool movie, the first Blade movie, Wonder Woman.

    There are so many more I could list: the Star Trek movies with the original cast, the Back to the Future movies, the Addams Family movies, the Meg Ryan/Tom Hanks/Billy Crystal romantic comedies, Groundhog Day, Annie Hall, Ghostbusters, Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit, and on and on.

    I love movies!

  4. I love returning to my favorite romance movies. Moonstruck is at the top of my list, hands down. Also on the list – Room With A View, When Harry Met Sally, Pride and Prejudice (2005), Harold and Maude (thanks, Lee, for introducing me to it!), and The Last of the Mohicans. I agree with Lee’s comment; these really are a form of comfort food.

    These much-loved movies came in handy when I was hiking difficult sections on the Appalachian Trail. If the trail ahead was particularly grueling, I would “pop in a movie” and distract my mind by going through every scene and conversation I could remember, from beginning to end. It proved to be a wonderful way to get through some tough days.
