    Anyone have a particular DVD that you pop in a bit more frequently then the others in your collection? For me it's Sleepy Hallow, I don't know what it is about that movie, but everytime a head goes rolling I start to laugh. But the blood is not realistic enough the, last time I sliced my finger open, the stuff that came out was not a dark shade of pink :) My second viewwd most DVD is Gladiator.

    I have lots of DVDs that I've never actually sat and watched all the way through even once, yet I've managed to watch THE IRON GIANT 3 times. It is the very definition of an overlooked, under-rated classic.

    Possibly "Quigley Down Under" if I could ever get it back from the friend I loaned it to. The sound of that rifle through a good sound system is worth the price of admission.

    Men in Black DTS. I can't remember how many times I've played it.

    This was my fav. But I was in a Tornado on May 3rd 1999 In Oklahoma city and since that it has not been the same. Before you ask how close I was to the tornado let me tell you. IT ACCUALLY HIT US. We were under an over pass (not for long mind you) and it blew us out of there. I was knocked 150+ ft down I-35 like a little rag doll, I lost my right shoe and one of my other friends lost his right shoe, Many of the people under there lost their lives, I consider myself lucky to have only lost one of my shoes. :/

    The one that I watched the most is Shawshank Redemption. I have probably watched it 15 to 20 times.

    Run Lola Run or The Crow probably. I think Amelie is well on its way to earning a spot like this as well.

    Wow! Glad you are okay.

    My most watched DVD and movie of all time for me is Star Trek: The Motion Picture. I know, it was a dud, but it introduced me to the wonderful world of great film scores and Jerry Goldsmith. Ever since the release in 1979, I have also discovered James Horner, John Williams, Bruce Broughton and other great movie composers. My life has never been the same.

    I also really enjoy the DVD because Robert Wise (the director) was able to go back and finally finish the movie. Now ST:TMP is complete and much better than when it was first released.

    Over the last couple weeks, it's been Lilo and Stitch. If it isn't already, it will soon become my most often played DVD!

    Star Wars Episode 1... I have a 4 year old.....

    Of course, before that, it was Toy Story 2, and next movie to be repeated entirely too frequently will probably be Star Wars Ep 2.

    Of course, he (like me) likes them played at "mommy upsetting" volume!!

    Right now it's "Ghostbusters", I just bought "TMNT", "TMNT 2" and "TMNT 3" off Amazon. So, one of those will be my most viewed in about 3 months.

    Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas has spent an inordinate amount of time in my DVD player over the last few years since it's release, though it hasn't been popped in for a while. When the Criterion Collection version comes out shortly, I predict a great resurgence in Fear and Loathing viewing!

    Wow...great flick. Its one of those, however, that only people who read the book seem to really appreciate. By far the funniest book I've ever read.


    THE MATRIX is by far the most played movie in my collection. Its not even the greatest video or sound quality out there (no DTS), but its damn good, loud, action packed and thus the DVD I throw in for a demo when people first see my home theatre. I usually throw it in at the lobby shooting spree and we end up watching the rest. So...I've seen the last half of the movie much more than the first half! :)
