I've seen the films so many times that I can't remember.
I really don't remember how many times I've seen it...
lost count-probably 100-200.
I seem to be remebering a certain X-files about people that watched SW 500+ times. What a crazy hoot. I didn't even get SW when I was 9, I always wondered what Episode IV was and why it wasn't I. But I think my sister watched Annie about that much when she was 4. But if you watched it 500+ times recently, then you definatly need help.
Easily over 500 for the original trilogy. I saw ANH opening day and dragged my gramma to it at least twice a week the whole summer. I did the same things the summers of ESB and ROJ [though my gramma declined those times-LOL] Not to mention all the tv airings and then I got the tapes. Sheesh! But I don't view it as a lack of a life, but a love of SW. I think over 20 years, it's easy to rack up the viewings to over 500. As far as PM, I think I've seen it less than 10.
I'm with you Bandersbox:
I could hardly call that a lack of a life. I have lived quite a hearty and indulgent life, I have crammed so much into my life that I have enough to do until I reach 150 years of age. I guess if you call having a 9-5 m-f job, coming home watching tv, passing out and starting all over again...then I would say those persons need to get a life...hehe.
I don't honestly know. I been watching all of them since I was born. So with the way I watch movies it could be in the 500+ but I don't really know.
Ahem, to see it 500+ is sad. I need a life. I do believe I have seen each one, because I spend hours typing on the computer, and out of habit I have to have something in the backround. I've watched each one several times while typing, since '94.
I've seen TPM alone about 30 times. It's almost shocking to even think how many times I've seen the OT!!!
Too dang many.
I watched at least the entire series once a week. Sometimes twice a week.
Around 30-50. Mainly TPM. I can actually recite most of the first scene, and can do the Neimoidian and Battle Droid voices pretty well. Here are some extracts...
"What? What did you say?"
"The ambassadors are Jedi knights, or so I believe."
"I knew it. They're here to force a settlement"
"Distract them. I will contact Lord Sidious"
"Are you braindead? I'm not going in there with two Jedi. Send a droid."
"What is it."
"This game of yours has faired, Lord Sidious. The blockade is finished. We dare not go against the Jedi."
"Viceroy, I don't want this stunted slime in my sight again"
"These events are unfortunate. We must accelerate our plans. Begin landing rout troops."
"My lord, is that...legal?"
"I will make it legal"
"And the Jedi?"
"The Chancellor should never have brought them into this. Kill them immediatley."
"Yes my lord. As you wish."
"They must be dead by now. Destroy whats left of them."
"Oh, excuse me!"
"Check it out Corporal, we'll cover you."
"Uh oh...blast them"
"What is going on down there?"
"We lost the transmission sir!"
"Seal off the bridge!"
"We will not survive this"
"Close the blast doors!"
"That will gold them"
"That won't be enough sir"
"I want droidekas up here at once!"
"They're still coming through!"
"This is impossible!"
"WHERE ARE THOSE DROIDEKAS!?"
"Sir, they've gone up the ventilation shaft!"
"VHS tapes snap after about 72 viewings"
I'm not so sure about that. It depends on what kind of VCR you have. Sure, it will snap in some older VCR's but I got a super new one and it'll never break !!!!
I have seen A New Hope over a thousand times, Empire, over 500, Return, about 300, Phantom Menace, about 30 times.
500?!?!?! Geez, we have lunatics here!
I'm afraid to say.....but I still manage to have an active social life!
Only 15 or so.
10 or less.
7 times each one so far, which makes 28 times altogether. But this will change next weekend, and from May 16 it will increase dizzily.
I'm guessing about 50 times total.
I have seen each film of the OT about 300 times. I wore out a set of tapes when I was young. I now have two sets, one original version and one SE, both widescreen that I alternate and do not watch as often as I used to. Need DVDs. Only seen TPM about 30 times.
at least over 50 .... but he, i am still young i will make the 500 times for sure
I only saw the SE's in the theater once, so that's three times, and I saw TPM three times.
On video, I've probably watched each film more than 30 times. So that brings my total to somewhere over 120.
76 to 125 at a rough guess.
i watched one, once a week for 3 years. must be around atleast 200 times
