CODNP Day 73: Your Most Watched Movie

Thursday was the 40th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back.  If you have been around me for any length of time, you know that the occasion was not going to get by without some sort of acknowledgement.  So as I fired up Empire on Disney+, I thought about how many times I’ve watched the movie.  It’s rare when I’ll watch A New Hope without soon following with ESB, but there are times where I’ll watch ESB all by itself.  So even ANH is older, I’ve probably seen Empire more than any other movie in my life.

Which lead me to this tweet:

I was pleasantly surprised at the number of responses I got on this query. Here’s a sample of them:

Occasionally, the most watched movie wasn’t necessarily by the watcher’s choice….

Some pointed out that movies we watched as kids over and over had a huge advantage.

And then there is this one. Given how long that movie is, to have seen it anything close to this many times in two years is amazing:

Overall, there were 59 different movies mentioned in some form or fashion. And that’s not including the general “one of the Star Wars” that was a popular answer. If you are wondering, here they are:

A Christmas Story
