I had a Saw marathon in September last year. I was up till six in the morning and my sleep pattern hasn't been the same since but it was worth it. I found you can appreciate this Saga if you view it as one continuous film.
I also had a Harry Potter marathon a year ago which was pretty cool.

When I complete my Bond collection (4 films left to go) I plan to do a Bond marathon over a weekend.

I don't think I could handle that much Saw in one sitting I gave up on the franchise after #3.

Good luck with Bond.

When I finished my A levels I decided to have my self a Paul Thomas Anderson Marathon, The master was due out in a few months, and obviously going out and having a life is for suckers.
I watched From Boogie nights straight through to There Will Be Blood.(I don't own Hard Eight) It was awsome and I'm now sure he's a genius.

I also once did Friday the 13th 1-10 in a weekend if that counts?

I attempted to watch all the Bonds within a week, I failed.

I really need to get back to them, I only managed to get to George Lazenby before he made me lose interest.

The Roger Moore era is still to come though!

The Lord of the Rings - extended edition. Think I've done that several times.
Harry Potter 1-8
X-Men movies 1-5
Game of Thrones season 1 and 2 (yes, I know it's not a movie, but it's still an awesome marathon!)

if you just want a single movie Marathon try Berlin Alexanderplatz its 16 hours long !!!!!!

Shoah is 9 hours long

The Russian version of War and Peace is seven hours long

Bertoluccis 1900 is just under six hours

That should keep you going and they are all avalible on DVD

I'm thinking of doing a HP marathon as well. I'm guessing it'll take a minimum of 16 hours. I'm not sure if my behind can't take sitting down for that long!

A few weekends ago I did a Sunday At Sea Marathon
A Night To Remember
Lifeboat
The Poseidon Adventure
20,000 Leagues Under The Sea
and the grand finale
Under Siege

I find doing themed marathons as opposed to one franchise gives it a bit of variation to stop boredom settlng in, (even thought I've done LOTR several times)

Next up I'm hoping to do 'person sent into the future' marathon , with Demolition Man, Woody Allen's Sleeper, and any other suggestions would be welcome.

The idea of movie marathons dont make sense to me.A double bill is all i managed a few times but watching movie after movie after movie all day is just madness.Dont people have better things to do than doing something like that? For one thing its just not healthy to be sitting in front of a tv for so many hours.

I still cant comprehend the sanity of those Empire guys who did the 20 movie Bond marathon before Casino Royale came out.TWENTY Bond movies over the course of one weekend without a break? Craziness.Id imagine they would never want to watch a Bond film ever again after a weekend like that.

I agree with Moorish.You can have too much of a good thing.I prefer to occasionally watch a particular movie series over the course of a week.Watched the Bourne trilogy ( Legacy doesnt exist,it never happened ) one a night over the last three nights and really enjoyed them again.

Unless you love movies.

I agree with you about Bond, that's probably too much, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with having a whole day of movies. I love doing it once in a while.

For the original question, no never done it, I'm pathetic, even though I'm a film enthusiast I just can't get in the mood or can't be arsed, I couldn't be arsed watching Once upon a time in America in one go and it was on my shelf for years, if I look at a DVD and the running time is over 220 mins it puts me off, never mind doing a marathon

Edit: sorry I mean 120 minutes




I'm the same. I love films, but I very rarely watch any more than one in a day. On a very rare occasion I'll maybe manage 3 sprinkled throughout the day. Yet, oddly, I can sit and watch dozens of episodes of a t.v show all day.

Only thing I've made a conscious effort to watch all in one day was the Bourne trilogy as I love it.

I tried to marathon the entire series of Barnyard Lovin' films but had to stop when nothing but air came out of my junk.

You realise you're posting on a film forum, right?

It's a bit like me going on a sports forum and saying, omg how can you guys just watch loads of sports? Don't you have anything better to do?!

Incidentally I marathoned the Star Wars films the other week, using the Machete order, and it works really well. (IV, V, II, III, VI, Google 'machete order' full reasoning.)

I have to admit i have not had a movie marathon in about six years or so. I just find my attention to the films wanders after about two films and I find myself doing other stuff whilst the film plays in the background.
