    I was travelling in Europe for the first time. As the movie wasn't available in the theaters where I lived, I decided to see what all the fuss was about while in Amsterdam (appropriately). One viewing was enough for my lifetime.

    Movies You’ve Watched More Than 10 Times

    The Great Escape, Casablanca... maybe The Wizard of Oz when I was a kid (and I've never seen it in colour). I need to wait a few years between viewings for most films that I own.
