    I last saw my favorite movie July 25, 2001. I basically cycle through my dvds, and since there are 362 ahead of it in line, it'll probably be a while until I see it again. But that's OK, I like all the other ones a lot too. [​IMG]

    I don't have a favorite, but I have a few favorites that I watch many, many times:
    8 1/2
    North By Northwest
    Lawrence of Arabia
    City Lights
    Moulin Rouge
    O Brother Where Art Thou?
    Help!
    These are DVD's I've watched at least 5-6 times. (I've watched LoA twice in one day, in fact!)

    Ben-Hur (1959) is my no.1 favorite movie and I last watched it on Christmas Day, I watch it at least once a year, sometimes twice (usually during Christmas or Easter), strangely enough films that aren't even in my top 20 I watch far more frequently, for instance I've already watched Final Fantasy more than a dozen times in the last 6 months.

    I watch The Third Man every couple of months. If more of my favorite flicks were on dvd, I'd be a serious couch potato! [​IMG]

    I watch my favorite movie (GoodFellas) about once a year. There are a lot of movies, comedies mostly, I see more often. For instance, I've seen Joe Dirt at least 5 times (you know, while I'm doing housework or something) in the last year.

    One of the great (and somewhat sad) ironies of being a film lover--the more great films you see or own, the less you see of them.
    Who knows how many times I watched the Star Wars Trilogy and Raiders in my youth, but it's certainly over 100 times each.
    Empire is my favorite film of all-time, but I don't think I've actually watched it even once during the past year. 2001 is in my Top Ten, but I haven't watched the DVD in its entirety yet (and I've had it since X-mas '99).
    Of the DVDs I own, The Big Lebowski, American Movie, and the two Fantasia films have probably gotten the most play.

    That's funny. I watched Apocalypse Now (theatrical version) twice this past weekend, and Ben-Hur the weekend before that!
    My favorite, Star Wars, probably gets watched a few times a year. Like Evan I've seen the Star Wars and Indy Jones trilogies about a hundred times or so each, with Star Wars and Empire more like 150-200 times since about 1981. My uncle had them on tape then and I think I practically wore them out! [​IMG]
    Haven't seen either in some time as my VCR broke awhile back and I can't bring myself to buy a new one just for six films! Alas, no LD player.
    Bill J-
    What do you think of AN Redux? I've not seen it yet and was curious to hear what your opinion of it is since it's your favorite film. It IS a damn good movie.
    Evan-
    You MUST get the new remastered 2001 DVD! Aside from some edge enhancement in certain scenes it's a spectacular transfer.

    Heinz--I've been meaning to. The only reasons I haven't yet are my relatively small TV size (just 27'', although my sound system is quite good, thankfully) and my apprehension that a Special Edition would be announced the moment I bought it.

    I'm kinda in the same boat Evan! I only have a 32" Sony now but a decent receiver and speakers. I held off on the MGM and first Warner release of 2001 waiting for at least an anamorphic transfer and glad I did. Yes, it's no SE but I just couldn't be without this film any longer! [​IMG]
    I'm awaiting the definitive 2001 SE also, but I couldn't deny myself this cinematic milestone once an anamorphic version was available! [​IMG]

    I have seen Fight Club, Gattaca, Amercian Beauity, The Graudate, Grosse Point Blank, High Fidelity, Ronin, Se7ev, and The Shawshank Redemption more times than I can imagine. But it depends on what kind of mood im in. American Beauity is my current goto movie. But there was a time where I think I watched Fight Club every other day for about two months.
