Are there any particular movies you watch over and over and over again? I think this is the 5th time I have watched the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. It's been on tv twice so far and I have watched them both times. I have also seen it on dvd twice and then once at the movies. What movies do you watch over and over again and you still enjoy seeing it each time?

Folks is about and elderly man who loses his memory. It is just so funny I laugh everytime. Well I would tell you more about it but I would spoil it for you. You should go and rent the movie. And tell me if you liked it. What do you think?

My favorite movie is "The Bodyguard." I don't know how many times I have watched it. I also like the movie, "Lean On Me." Most people think that the things that I watch are "Goody good," movies. I wouldn't say that. But I will say that I do not like violence, horror, or Science Fiction. To me, Science Fictions are like cartoons. There are no realistic limits on these type of movies. It's like they got bored with normal stuff, so they turned to make believe and magic. I think that anyone with any amount of talent can make a hit movie if the skies the limit. It takes a genius to live in reality and come out on top.

My best friend likes to watch the Science Fiction cable channel. One of the main reasons I can not get into it is because they always contain violence, horror, or some kind of magic. That stuff does not interest me at all. But I know a lot of people who really enjoy that stuff. So I know that I am the exception and not the norm, but I am alright with that.

My friend bought it for me last year for my birthday along with a stuffed penguin, a burger king mumble toy, and a poster. :) I LOVE Happy Feet! I watch it almost once a week.

well i think the most number of times a movie that i have watched will be the matrix. i have seen that in theaters more than 7 times and also reloaded more than 5 times and i have a dvd of them both and i have seen them also for quite a few times at home. and then the next will be the triology of the lord of the rings. just a few days ago i got the collectors edition of the DVD of lord of teh rinsg which is of 12 DVDs.

The movie that I have watched the most number of times was Superman the Movie. I was a kid then and I must have watched it 15-20 times. But now that I am older and have little time for leisure, i can only repeat watching a movie just once.

I have a really hard time watching a movie more than once. Really the only times I have done so are when I've been invited to go to the theater by different people when it first comes out. Other than that, I own almost no DVDs just because I know I won't watch them.

I have to admit, as silly as it may sound, that I watched Step Up 1 13 times in theatres. That's how crazy I was before about Channing Tatum all because he kinda looks like my ex whom I hadn't gotten over with at the time the movie came out. Haha. Almost all Harry Potter movies that came out, Ive watched them 2x or 3x. The LOTR trilogy, all of them, I was able to watch them 2x. :D

I have never seen the Lord of the Rings, any of them. I have been meaning to since I know it won so many awards and everyone raves about them. I heard they are coming out with another movie "The Hobbit" soon and it will have some of the same actors in it. I better catch up before it comes out!

I'll watch movies several times if I like them a lot, especially 80s movies. They're my guilty pleasure! My mom has watch The Lord of the Rings trilogy so many times she could probably recite it word for word. haha. My husband and I have watched the Harry Potter movies I couldn't even tell you how many times.

I am sorry. I never watch any movies in recent years. Because I find it a waste of time to watch a bad movie. Besides, the ticket is too expensive.

I can and do watch Harold and Maude endlessly! Also Camelot, Sound of Music and the version of Mame with Lucille Ball and Bea Arthur. I watch movies all the time - that is, when I'm not on this computer! Love them! I'm not into things like the Lord of the Rings, but there's appeal in everything for someone. The important thing is, if watching a movie again and again makes you happy, there is no reason that I can think of not to do it!

I’ve watched so many movies and so many times. What I like to watch over and over again is The Bourne movies. I like it very much; it’s my number one favorite movie off all time. It doesn’t bore me. :)

I have watched the Ten Commandments at least ten times, and Sense and Sensibility about six times, and I have watched several of the old 1940s movies about five or more times. I plan to get Ten Commandments, Sense and Sensibility, and Pride and Prejudice on Dvds, I might get the old version of the latter as well as the new version and I definitely want to get all of the LORD of The Rings movies as well as the Godfather series on Dvd since I consider these as classics.
