I have seen these loads of times:

The Matrix, One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest, The Crow
The Lost Boys, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
Hemoglobin, L A Confidential, Blade Runner,
Happy Gilmore, Most Bruce Lee films, Capricorn One
Total Recall, The Sting,
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
Most Marilyn Monroe films
Twelve Monkeys, Time Bandits, Brazil
Most Monty Python films, This is Spinal Tap
The Batman films, Rain Man, Most Rutger Hauer films
The Usual Suspects, Goodfellas, Cool Hand Luke,
Star Wars, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, john Carpenter's Vampires, Bram Stoker's (!) Dracula
....
The only film I've ever seen at the cinema where people walked out was Eyes Wide Shut, almost everybody got up and walked. I'm not surprised either, I hated it. I like to give a movie every chance to get better so I stayed to the bitter end.

"Best In Show" & "A Mighty Wind" both also very funny.

Most times watched? It has to be Billy Madison for me.

Fell asleep? Texas Chainsaw Massacre of course! Or maybe it was the other way around, not sleeping for weeks... hmm Smile Smile

Hey Evan,

I work for a small entertainment company here in Austin called Three Ring Service dealing Blackjack and C.r.a.p.s. and stuff, and I will hopefully soon be contracted out doing magic for kid's parties.

Anyway, the owner (my boss) Allen Danziger played Jerry the hippie in the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre! I am assuming that you fell asleep during the remade flick, yeah?

Walked out of Ishtar.

Got stuck on a plane from New York to Chicago that, for weather reasons, became a nine hour ordeal. To keep the passengers occupied they showed the movie three times. The movie? Groundhog's Day Smile

Crouching Tiger's cool if you treat it with the same frame of mind as you would approach Batman. Smile

I've seen Raiders of the Lost Ark somewhere around 150 times, maybe more. I know almost all the dialog and even the music cues by memory. Plus being a kung fu guy, I tend to watch Bruce Lee movies over and over again, especially Enter the Dragon, Return of the Dragon, and The Chinese Connection. That goes for Jackie Chan too, especially Half a Loaf of Kung Fu and Rumble in the Bronx. Add in most Humphrey Bogart flicks (especially with Bacall), all Abbott and Costello and Marx Brothers movies and Joe vs. the Volcano, and that's about it for the many repeaters.

Walked out on this monstrous piece of manga/anime called something like Urotoksodoji: Legend of the Overfiend. After about a ten minute setup, as far as I could tell the movie is one long series of violent sexual assaults using demons to expand the possibilities. I remember hearing people getting sick as I was leaving. I couldn't bring myself to look up the correct name because I don't want my computer to think I'm that twisted. If you ever see it advertised, stay well away, you'll thank me for it.

Even though I love the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey, I often fall asleep during the ending. Not from boredom though, it just seems to totally relax me for some reason.

I had a video of Dances with wolves in University, going to school full time working full time, theatre on the side. Every so often I would say "hey I actually three straight hours with nothing planned-I'm going to watch that movie!"

I saw the opening shots at least 12 times- never stayed awake long eneough to know what the movie was about.

One more to mention-I was watching David Lynch's wild at Heart, and said to myself about twenty minutes through "one more close-up on a ciggerette and I'm-that's it unwatchable" and walked out.

Yes, "Wild At Heart" is not Lynch's best.

But "Eraserhead"- oh dear god, the beauty. Smile

There is nothing that remains so constant as change. Don't end up like concrete, all mixed up and permanently set. Smile

I almost never watch a movie more than once, rarely twice and if it's a classic three times. But the most?

Count of Monte Cristo (6 times)(everything else is a distant second).

Movies I've seen so many times I can't count because I've been subjected to them annually?

Wizard of Oz
It's A Wonderful Life

Movies I've walked out of? Only one

Dogma (The most offensive movie I've ever seen
