How many times did you go to the theater to see these films?

LOTR - FOTR
LOTR - TTT
XMEN
X2
Matrix
Matrix Reloaded
Die Another Day
Star Wars Ep1
Star Wars Ep2
Spiderman
DareDevil

Did I forget any others?
Matrix Reloaded isn't deep at all. It's a simple, rehashed concept dressed up in fancy words and designer outfits...

Real World: "I'm hungry as hell, so I'm going to run my ass down to Micky D's to get me a burger and fries."

Matrix 2: "I need sustenance, ergo, move I shall expeditiously...

I never went to the theater so many times in one month than I did last month. Three times for X2 and twice for Matrix Reloaded, Down With Love, and Finding Nemo.

I saw Pulp Fiction a half dozen or so times theatrically, besides that I don't think I've seen any single title more than once. Certainly nothing since I got my first DVD player back in '98. Nowdays I only go to the movies if I'm on a date and I'm looking for some cheap entertainment.

A lot of these I didn't have to pay for because the theater I used to work at still let me in for free even after I had left there.

LOTR - FOTR - 3x
LOTR - TTT - 2x
Star Wars Ep1 - 2x (I had to make sure it wasn't wrong expectations)

Once for everything else, exept Die Another Day which I never watched.

The only other movies I saw more than once: Gladiator - 2x (same reason as Ep1) and Saving Private Ryan.

I don't think I could do more than 3x.

LOTR - FOTR (4)
LOTR - TTT (4)
XMEN (1)
X2 (1 but plan to go again)
Matrix (2)
Matrix Reloaded (3)
Die Another Day (1, which was 1 too many)
Star Wars Ep1 (2)
Star Wars Ep2 (3, 1 was DLP)
Spiderman (3)
DareDevil (1, which was 1 too many, and I agree that this is no BO king)

I see many films I enjoy more than once at the theater, and not just "big" films. I went to see City of God a 2nd time earlier this year.

I have a pretty nice front projection home theater, but its still not the same.

Okay, given the chance, free time & once I run out of great films to watch at home or in theaters, I will watch City of God or Raising Victor Vargas or Finding Nemo again.

I might go to Atlanta, Ga just to watch in theaters for the first time what I consider the greatest film of all-time, Lawrence of Arabia.

There are just too many great films waiting to be seen for the first time. "So many movies, so little time". Posted Image

It's bit older than these films, but I'm surprised you didn't ask about Titanic (1).
