    Friday 5: Most-watched movies

    Not the first time this has been discussed on CF, I’m sure, but that’s OK.

    Rank the 5 movies you’ve seen most often, roughly in order of frequency.

    It can be by choice and/or “default” (“It was on TV, so I …” etc.). No assumption that it qualifies as a ranking of your favorite films. No rules about partial-views, but let’s say 75% or more counts as (1).

    I’ll post mine in a while.

    Go!

    In case you missed it: Last week’s Friday 5: ISU non-nut kicks

    Re: Friday 5: Most-watched movies

    btw -- interesting that both responses so far are countdowns. (My prelim list is 1-thru-5 -- maybe I'll go the other way).

    Re: Friday 5: Most-watched movies

    Mine (best estimate)
    1. This is Spinal Tap
    2. The Wizard of Oz
    3. The Shawshank Redemption
    4. Easy Rider
    5. Fargo/The Shining

    "Jaws" would be a partial-qualifier, but I’ve probably watched it start-to-finish no more than four times.

    Re: Friday 5: Most-watched movies

    Top 3 are probably because they're my favorite movies. The other two are just more because if they're on tv, I'll end up watching them every time.

    5. Sandlot
    4. LOTR series
    3. The Professional
    2. Garden State
    1. Forgetting Sarah Marshall
