For me the first film I ever watched twice back to back was The Lion King. The first time I saw the film was on VHS when I was a kid and I immediately rewound the tape to watch it again.

When I got older I did that with Blade 2 but in the theater. I snuck into another screening right after mine ended. That film was awesome!!!

I did it with Van Helsing once, but I'm not sure if it counts. I watched the movie, then when it was back on the menu I muted it and it proceeded to play the entire film again while I blabbed with my sister. I think I did it with Raiders when I was younger, too.

Never done this. I felt like doing it with many, MANY films, but always stopped myself from re-watching a film straight away after finishing it in the fear of it loosing something that was the reason for me to want to re-watch the film in the first place.

Magnolia. Rented it and watched it but because the copy was slightly knackered, went out and bought it as soon as I'd finished and saw it again.

I used to watch loads of fllms on a loop when I was a kid. I'd watch The Goonies a few times in a row, Bugsy Malone, Ghostbusters, The Great Muppet Caper, Muppets Take Manhattan and when I was a teen it'd be Tango & Cash, Lethal Weapon, Lethal Weapon 2 and loads more.

Weird Science. I used to love that film in that I can remember once quoting the entire script with a friend once (which is a very sad thing to do). I saw it again for the first time in years about six months ago. I am sorry to say it did not hold up to the memory.

You watched Van Helsing twice?
ON PURPOSE????

I watched Planes,Trains & Automobiles on VHS with my Dad in 1988 & immediately rewound it & watched it again.
Absolutely hilarious and heartbreaking at the end.

Does watching it once, and then watching it straight after with the director's commentary count?

I do that loads.

I've never done it. I've watched a great film and then immediately watched the sequel (I remember doing this with the Back to the Future trilogy with my sister), but never the same film.

I'm know I used to watch Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Ghostbusters endlessly as a child, but couldn't tell you if it was ever with back-to-back regularity!

To be honest, as long as I can remember I've never been compelled to do that. No matter how much I may have loved a film, I don't think my attention and patience would stretch to watching a 2 hours-ish film twice in a row. Maybe it's a 'you can have too much of a good thing' type of mentality!

Memento. Watched it forwards, then backwards via the dvd easter egg. Then had a lie down.

When I was 11 I watched Robocop three times in a row. I might've dozed off halfway through the final helping but I'm still the winner

Good man. That makes four of us on the forum that likes it - me, Gimli, you and I think Donovan is fan too. I wonder if a four signature petition would be enough to green light a sequel?

Once I watched Terminator 2 five times in a row. I was home sick from school. One of the greatest days ever.

Come to think of it, I've got a feeling I probably watched The Phantom Menace about 3-4 times back to back when it came out on VHS...

I can guarantee you one of three things-

1. Whistler or whoever took the photo, lifted copies off the shelf to take the photo
2. Whoever bought them, the film was the last choice in the 5 for 30. Every time.
3. Hell has frozen over.

Four people who love Van Helsing does not make it a great film. Especially not when one of those people thinks Battleship is the best film of 2012

I can assure you this wasn't the case. I mean I love the movie, but even I was sure it was probably just the staff were too embarrassed to re-stock it

That's DK, right? Yeah, I guess there's no accounting for taste.

That photo is a damning indictment of the buying public. Two copies of the Palme d'Or winning Uncle Boonmee sit on the shelves, alongside a pair of copies of Tyrannosaur and a bunch of We Own The Night's, while Van Helsing is sold out.
