    Ah that sucks! :/

    I'm watching them again for Memorial Day. Well, 4-6 anyways. I may watch 1-3 tomorrow when everyone's at work. Been a very fun weekend!

    It seems I'm a bit different compared to others over here. I think I've only ever watched each movie about 4 to 5 times in their entirety. And I have only once watched them all in order from episode 4 to 6 and then from 1 to 3 (on visually and audibly stunning Blu-ray editions[face_love] ). And that was about a year ago with my family when we watched one every evening for six days straight. And that's it. So I don't think I can compare to some of the hardcore fans on JCF, but hey, I still love these films. :) I just don't have the urge to watch them so often. And I like to have that feeling of not knowing what exactly comes next in a certain scene. Had that feeling last year and will definitely have it again when I'll watch them next time.

    I watch them in order 1,2,3,4,5,6 then start over again 1,2,3,4,5,6, etc. I can't wait til the day to watch them 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9!!! As for how many SW movies I watch a year. I usually watch a SW movie if I have time on a weekend, so I usually watch 2-3 movies a month.

    I watch the GL directed SW's movies often, at least once or twice a month, but I haven't watched ESB or ROTJ for quite some time now.

    I should re-watch The Prequels. It has been too long...

    Usually once or twice a year (depends if they're aired on TV or not).

    I was used to watch the OT movies 2 or 3 times a year when I was younger, in late 80's and 90's.

    But the one thing I really crave to see is the O-OT (before 1997) on the big screen again...

    Oh, my god. I watch the OT with an embarrassing frequency. Even compared to the answers in this thread (*especially* compared to the answers in this thread). Oh, wow….I need to take a step back and reevaluate my life choices…...

    The whole saga, once a year. An whole movie, probably once every 2/3 months. A certain scene/shot, almost weekly.

    It's been a while since I've watched them, but when I first became a fan in 2007, as soon as I got the DVDs, I would watch two movies from the series every weekend. I don't know how long I did this, but it felt like a year or more. lol

    the that's the one you should watch the most.

    btw if you have netflix online you can watch all the clone wars episodes. if you haven't already i recommend watching ep 1 and 2, then watching the clone wars show in chrono order, then ep 3, 4, 5, 6.

    this is the chronological order for the show...

    if you have netflix I HIGHLY recommend this. it's great.

    It is fresh, it feels just like yesterday yet somehow... it feels like it's been forever, at the same time. One things for sure, I'm gonna watch Episode 7 on opening night. I've never done that for any movie, and now that I'll get to see Star Wars on the big screen, I think it's time for my first midnight premier experience.

    I watch all six films every day. OK, not really. I try to make a point of doing a weekend marathon of all six once per year, though. And then additional viewings of the individual films whenever my kids want to watch them.

    Oh? I thought that was a requirement to maintain your position on the Mod Squad. I'm telling.

    I've seen it loads but I just find it really boring. Compared to the other 5 it sucks! In my humble opinion anyway! ;)

    I can relate to finding ANH slow in parts, particularly from when the main characters reach the deathstar (up until the duel between Obi-Wan and Vader anyway - great dialogue if not the most visually interesting duel). And some of the deathstar attack drags after seeing it so many times. However overall I find it far more consistent in quality than TPM, AOTC and ROTJ. This sounds cliche, but it's the one that started it all, it introduces so much, and you can see why it is held among most fans faves.

    To answer the thread question - I think too much :p
    I think I go through phases a bit, but besides AOTC I tend to watch them all through every month or two, increases and decreases in frequency, but I love TPM, so I watch it a lot, then that makes me want the payoff of ROTS, then of course it makes you want to watch the OT. ROTS in '05 really made me an addict I guess...
