Movies I've Seen Multiple Times in the Theater

I'm sure most of us have come across certain movies that we've wound up going back to see again while it was still in theaters. Sometimes we get dragged out to the same movie multiple times by different groups of friends (Van Helsing), or sometimes we happen to stumble upon something that's so good that we just have to go back out and experience it again and again (Belle). Heck, sometimes that movie's so good that we wind up being that friend that drags everyone else out to see it, so that they can experience its greatness for themselves (Dredd)!

Well, over the years, I've been keeping track of the movies that I've seen in the theater multiple times, and now here's what that list looks like today.

My #1 Movie of the Year, Every Single Year

While I haven't actively been reviewing movies anymore for a few years now, one thing I still like to do all the same is, at the end of each year, I still enjoy ranking my favorites from the past year. And seeing as how I've been consistently ranking my favorite films every year since 2009, I thought it might be fun to look back and see what I chose at the time to be my #1 favorite movie from each year (as well as the decades as a whole). So, without further ado, here are my #1 Movies of the Year from every single year that I've been consistently ranking movies:


(James Cameron)

2000 - 2009
Best of the Decade

Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith
(George Lucas)


(Christopher Nolan)


Sucker Punch
(Zack Snyder)


(Pete Travis)


Iron Man 3
(Shane Black)


(Christopher Nolan)


Inside Out
(Pete Docter)


La La Land
(Damien Chazelle)


(James Mangold)


Bohemian Rhapsody
(Bryan Singer)


Frozen II
(Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee)

2010 - 2019
Best of the Decade

(Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee)


The Hunt
(Craig Zobel)


Raya and the Last Dragon
(Don Hall, Carlos López Estrada)


Sonic the Hedgehog 2
(Jeff Fowler)

And there it is. And while I do still stand by most of these, there are a few which I would totally swap out for another movie at this point. However, while I was considering sharing those picks that I'd change, I instead decided that I'd just like to let these initial picks stand on their own. After all, the Academy doesn't get to go back and say what movies they would have picked for Best Picture if they changed their minds years later, so who am I to go back and retroactively change what's essentially my own picks for Best Picture each year at the time.

But anyways, those are my original picks for #1 Movie of the Year each year. What movies were your favorites from each year at the time?
