I think I've watched it about 3 times since it came out in 1984. The first time was in the 1980s, the second time around the late 1990s, and both those times I had no idea what was going on.

Now, three decades later, I finally got it!

The latest one was a fanedit by Spicediver watched over the past few nights.

honestly probably about 20 times.

WTF?

reply

I've never seen the original but I've seen the Extended Fan-edit three times, I like it :)

Lately, I've been watching it almost every night before I fall asleep. I've done that with many of my favorite 80's films; TESB, BTTF, GB, ROTLA.

Theater version about 2 times, TV version 5 times and the fanmade (redux) just once now. The later is probably best.

This is one of my top three watched movies of all time.
It's right up there with Star Wars and Aliens

Believe me, I'm not lying when I say I lost track on the counts on all these movies when they got up to the 150-200 range...and that was quite a while back too.

It's amazing how you can do without the essentials of life, so long as you have the luxuries.

One time when it came on Showtime or HBO in the 80's and it was the longest and most boring thing I've ever watched.

My friend who had read the book said that would have helped but I had zero interest.

Maybe they should break it up into several films like Star Wars.

Like 1/2 a time. I couldn't make it through the whole thing. But someday I will force myself to watch it all.
