Space Jam. I am 25 and I watched this film more times than days I have lived. I have lived more than 9000 days.  I have seen this film at least 10,000 times

I literally watched this a couple days ago with the love. Still love it. And the song is still stuck in my head.

Watership Down, the movie - not the serial. It was one of the scariest movies I had seen by then. What was I, 12? A depiction of lives in fear and hope and dreams. The scenes were downright terrifying. The brave Hazel, little Fiver the seer, Bigwig the warrior, Blackberry the clever one... Kehaar the crazy featherball. The General, ruthless and powerful and a fighter to the last. And the heroes of the dreamworld; Frith the wise, El-Ahrairah the trickster, and finally the Black Rabbit who awaits us all. I have rarely seen a movie this rich on impressions. It is hard to believe that it's just a story about a handful of rabbits.

Damnit all. Now I need to hunt down the book and read it again. No, I won't see the movie again because the artwork has been left behind by technology's progress. But the tales are timeless.

- “Rabbits (says Mr. Lockley) are like human beings in many ways. One of these is certainly their staunch ability to withstand disaster and to let the stream of their life carry them along, past reaches of terror and loss. They have a certain quality which it would not be accurate to describe as callousness or indifference. It is, rather, a blessedly circumscribed imagination and an intuitive feeling that Life is Now. A foraging wild creature, intent above all upon survival, is as strong as the grass.”

I’ve got a three way tie and they’re all Disney movies.  Mulan, Tarzan, and Hercules.  I still love the stories and the music from all of them.

Castle In the Sky.  Definitely hafta be that one.  I first saw it at my best friend's house.  Probably the first Studio Ghibli film that I ever saw.

Being 48, there were few films I saw multiple times.  Wizard of Oz was a must see the one time a year they showed in on television.  For theater films, though, the one movie that planted a flag for imagination and dreams was Star Wars.  My family went to see it in the drive-in theater, and it was a triple feature-not three different films, but three showings of Star Wars.  Nothing has kept me breathless through the entire film like that film, let alone three straight viewings.

After that, Empire Strikes Back.  If Star Wars was the flagship of my childhood, Empire was the entrance to my adolescence.  God, did I ever have a crush on Carrie Fisher.

Any Land Before Time movie. Seriously, I had all of them on VHS and I watched them back to back. I had nearly all the songs memorized and if I was in another room, I could instantly recognize the voices of the characters and come running. And even as an adult I still cherish the movies, even if there is like fourteen or fifteen of them now  ;D

I had the first Land Before Time on VHS, together with Jurassic Park. Our country was fresh out of communism, and all this stuff was flooding the market as there was no copyright legislation whatsoever. It was a sort of Lawless East over here. A kind of pirate bay sprawled around markets and big shops, at first with VHS and audio tapes, and later on with compact disks. Fun times.   ::)

The Land Before Time must have been a fresher arrival, but I think Jurassic Park was a copy smuggled in before the revolution, as the tape was really poor quality and there was this voice-over done by someone who is now the most famous film critic in my country or something. She would paste her voice over the whole dialogue in a movie as a clandestine operation, as there were no subtitles and people didn't speak foreign languages. It was actually forbidden to watch foreign movies during the regime, as the communists believed that they were the means through which western imperialists planted the seeds of capitalist indoctrination. I'd go on about how passionately I hate those bastards to this very day, but that's a different topic.  ::) 

Though not technically "movies", I also had the first three episodes of Filmation's He-Man & The Masters of the Universe, done with the same voice-over. I cannot stress what an impact that animated series has had on my childhood. The pervert that I am today owes everything to that show.  ::)
