Watched the most

Movies

I watch a lot of different movies and I’m often asked which ones I would recommended or which I have watched the most times. Hopefully this page will help with answer those questions and you’ll find a movie you love.

Watched the most

The majority of movies I only watch once. However, there are a few which I would watch when I have chance to share them with someone else. Since 2005, I have watched these five movies four times. If you haven’t watched one of these, then I recommend watching these first.

  • Garden State

  • Punch-Drunk Love

Recommendations

Watching a movie multiple times is only one metric which can be used to decide to recommend a movie. With the sheer amount of movies out there, it isn’t feasbile to watch most of them more than once. Some movies I might recommend but can’t really bare to watch again – not because they’re bad, but the difficult subject matter doesn’t lend itself to multiple watches.
