I don't believe there are any feature films I've watched over ten times. A few might qualify for 7 or 8 viewings, though. I think "Creature From the Black Lagoon" ranks in the top spot for repeated viewings. Now there are things like "Our Gang" and "Three Stooges" shorts that I'm sure I've seen well over ten times, as they were such omnipresent fixtures on tv when I was growing up.

I've kept a log of all the movies I've watched since 1979. I never listed repeat viewings. As of this week, I've now seen 5,064 different feature films. Almost all are oldies, of pre-1970s/80s vintage. I've also kept track by using those studio-themed books, like "The RKO Story," "The Universal Story," etc., via putting a little red dot alongside the film entries that I've seen.

Yeah, ten times is a lot, I'm always frightened of ruining a favourite film by over-viewing it. One film that comes to mind is Jason & The Argonauts, I think I saw it three or four times on general release (god, I loved that movie) & then for a few years afterwards I'd go see it whenever it turned up in the odd cinema, & then a few times on the telly. The funny thing is, I've had the excellent Blu-ray for some years now...& have never got around to watching it (yet).

Don't know if 10 times but my list probably tracks with many others': Dracula; Citizen Kane; echoing Bert (especially now that I have a 3D TV) Creature from the Black Lagoon (also Gog for the same reason...); Psycho; Seven Days in May; Goldfinger; French Connection; Godfather; Animal House, etc. One title on my list that probably separates me from the rest of the pack is Kiss Me Deadly.

Off the top of my head, at least twenty times for:

The Wizard of Oz
Goldfinger
and Dr. No, my two favorite Bond adventures
The Thin Man
Murder, She Said
and Murder Most Foul, the two best Margaret Rutherford/Miss Marple films
To Kill a Mockingbird

These movies are like my comfort food. I can put them on when I'm feeling down in the dumps and get instantly lifted up and carried away with their entertaining qualities.

Too many. :)

Thanks to a childhood of watching and rewatching movies & then working in a video store for years in college, I've seen a ton of the movies more than 10 times- all the Star Wars movies (even the new one), a bunch of the Halloweens, Friday The 13ths & A Nightmare On Elm Streets, the first two Terminators, the Jaws movies (even the awful ones), the Indiana Jones movies, Aliens, Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy and probably many more.

I've probably seen most of them more than 25 times. Like I said, too many. :)

As with many others hundreds of titles over 10, in fact dozens over 25.

Heck, I’ll bet I saw The Wizard Of Oz over 25 times before the video age began due to its annual broadcast.

Another title surprisingly not mentioned yet - It’s A Wonderful Life.

Most of the holiday staples are over 25
Miracle On 34th St
Holiday Inn
A Christmas Carol (‘38)
Easter Parade
Yankee Doodle Dandy
Quiet Man
Abbott And Costello Meet Frankenstein


Many Flynn’s, Astaires, and Bogarts are near or over 25

<edited> - ok, my math is off with Wizard Of Oz. Video Age went mass in mid-80s, and I wouldn't have begun annual viewing until mid-60s (I'm 56), so probably closer to 20 times before VA. But more than 25 since mid-80s.

Any parent of young children growing up in the VHS/DVD era would have to have a long number of those. Maybe "Paid attention while watching" might be a different story.

Easily
Mary Poppins
Little Mermaid
Lion King
Aladdin
Pinocchio
Dumbo
Jungle Book
Peter Pan
Maybe Beauty and the Beast
Toy Story
Cars
1st 2 Little Foot Movies
Wizard of Oz
Willy Wonka
Matilda
I'm sure there are others
Even more if you include segments of movies -- esp Sorc. Apprentice from Fantasia

Being a teen from the 70's and the HBO/Showtime in College generation
Various original Star Wars (4 and 5 mostly my oldest saw the 1990's Theatrical Re-release on the big screen over a 6 week period I thought he was going to wear out my Laserdiscs)
Raiders
ET
Back to the Future
I'm sure at least a couple James Bond's from the late 70's

Shawshank Redemption

Unforgiven
Josey Wales
For a Few Dollars More
at least a couple more Eastwood westerns

African Queen
maybe Casablanca
Sound of Music
Original Planet of the Apes

When Harry Met Sally
Sleepless in Seattle
Big
A League of Their Own
Bull Durham
Maybe Major League (another pattern I notice)
Apollo 13

These could be over 25 by now esp if you count "at least an hour worth"
Christmas Story -- 4-5+ times in a day with those TBS loops
Groundhog Day -- I remember doing a 24 hr loop one of the first time they did it when I was home alone though I didn't sit in front the TV the entire 24 hrs, but it was on and I was nearby the whole time.
It's a Wonderful Life
Miracle on 34th St
A Christmas Carol (at least a couple versions or 3 if you count Muppets and other animated versions)

This is getting a bit depressing
