4 times easily in theatres including latest 3D version since it's 1998 release.And another couple or more times on Home DVD.

They were not by choice but on requests by several freinds and family over course of time.

Personally I was done watching it first time, not a fan of Titanic nor its OST.

Well?

Watched it. one of the worst movie i have ever seen.

apart from obvious reason it was boring, tedious, overrated. its also a movie that promote cheating. and old women telling story of her young age when she was kate winslet and affair with young men Leonardo dicaprio (also resemble leon kennedy) and when old woman died, she once again become kate winslet and reunited with lionardo dicaprio while donot care about her husband she spent 80 years but care only one who meet for 3 days in ship.

i mean what the hell kind of story is that?? lol. and they show Rose finance as a Villain??!! yeah he was arrogant but he can be anti hero but a villain? in any shape or form?

At least twice. I saw it once in theater and I saw it once with my wife. She loves that movie, but it's my type of film.

I watched it only one time, and that's more than enough for me.

I have seen Titanic in theaters like 3 times and 1 time at home with DVD.

Titanic is probably maybe the best ever example of what I call "movie magic." When I went to the theaters at the age of 12, it was like they had brought the old ship back to life and plopped me down right in the middle of it. Even though I picked up on the lame dialogue and predictable plots, the movie did right just brought me in so completely that I didn't mind it. The crazy thing was that I really did find myself feeling like the beautiful world they had created would last forever--even as the iceberg inevitably came, a part of me was actually hoping that everything would be all right. And seeing this whole world be destroyed, it really made me sad. I found myself liking the romance because it was part of the whole that I liked--and of course the two lead actors' performances helped a lot. Their chemistry and charisma sold the lame dialogue better than it had a right to be. Everything about the movie just came together perfectly to make me ignore the flaws and just enjoy the ride. Hell, when it was playing over the closing credits, I even liked the Celine Dion song, with zero irony.

In the few months after the movie I was fully in the throes of Titanic-mania. I was telling everyone it was great. Interestingly, even though this movie is stereotyped as a "chick flick" I saw it with my family, and when I tried to talk to my ex-girlfriend into going she just wasn't into it. She just didn't like disaster movies or period pieces. I finally did see it on video DVD with her, and man, that sure did destroy the magic. Seeing it on a TV screen with vastly inferior sound...there was none of the atmosphere, but the unnatural dialogue, one-dimensional characters, and cliched plot stood out more than ever. My ex was like, "Why did you like this so much?" and I was like "I don't know, I guess you had to see it at the theater cause that's were it shines the most...back in 1997.

I wonder if seeing it now that we have big HDTVs with better sound would bring some of the magic back? Still though, flawed as the movie may be there's no denying how brilliant James Cameron was in bringing the whole thing to life. It cost so much to make, and had been delayed so long, everyone expected it to be a big flop that embarrassed the studio. But he knocked it out of the park with a movie that broke sales records AND cleaned up at the Oscars.

Use to sit next to an asshole in music class who played this (badly) at least 3 times a week for 40-50 minutes.

2 or 3 times. I don't mind the movie personally. I think it's aged very, very well. The first time I saw it would have been on an old VHS when we were staying at a farmhouse in 2012.

Once when I was still married. Though I've watched the real time sinking on YouTube a few times in full. Scary shit. ESPECIALLY those last two minutes.

Between Titanic and Forrest Gump, I share the same sentiment. Every time someone goes off saying either of these are the greatest movies they've ever seen, I silently cringe.

I like how you conveniently neglect to mention she probably didn't have a whole lot of say in her marriage, and her fiancé was both physically and emotionally abusive. I do agree her dying and being reunited with Leo's character who she knew for less than a week as though it was the most important relationship in her life is a bit of an eyeroll.

For me personally, I've seen the movie a number of times and quite enjoyed it simply for the fact I was kind of obsessed with the Titanic as a kid (had books, would watch documentaries, etc), and James Cameron did an absolutely amazing job recreating the ship and the sinking. As for the love story aspect, it was okay, the acting was good and the chemistry between Kate and Leo was convincing.

If you treat it as a disaster and historical (I use that term loosely) film, it's really not that bad. Still kind of bad, though. It did absolutely nothing for me. I really did not start to like Leo until Blood Diamond, and Kate Winslet is meh.

But I think it was released at a time when Leo was hot stuff so you had basically everyone woman under 50 going to see it, and dragging their boyfriend or husband along as well.

People can enjoy movies as they please, but for every time someone thinks they're a cinephile for saying Forrest Gump is one of the greatest achievements in cinema (and I've heard this a lot), they clearly haven't explored cinema; and usually they haven't as evidence when I actually get into cinema discussion with them.

@jaydan: I was just joking. I thought the good-natured ":D" would have made that obvious. I personally love the movie, but I get why others dislike it.

It's too easy, takes no risks. That makes it kind of shallow. I don't think liking Forrest Gump makes you a cinephile. Frankly, though, sometimes you need a simple movie about a simple man making his way through life, while also experiencing historical moments of the 20th century.

Also every time I watch that movie, I want to strangle Jenny. She totally jerked Gump around, it almost ruins the movie for me.

I saw it once when it first came out in theaters, I didnt hate it and thought a lot of it was genuinely good but its also a movie which I'll never watch again.

As for people asking how it was as big as it was, ask any women who went to see it 10 times at theaters that question, no guy on here is going to be able to answer that.

@mrbojangles25: Lol I never said liking Forrest Gump makes you a cinephile but rather I've run into enough simpleton moviegoers that think liking Forrest Gump is some sort of cinematic prodigy for film when it really isn't.

It wasn't even the greatest movie from the year it came out. Not over Pulp Fiction, Three Colors, Shawshank Redemption or Ed Wood.

People just want simple feel-good movies, and Forrest Gump is manipulative and problematic in that regard. It hardly evokes any deeper meaning. People just like to feel edgy pulling a Forrest Gump quote as a life-lesson as if a million people haven't already done that.

Half a time. I got bored of it midway through and turned off my TV. I never saw the poor ship sink.

Well only watched once but will kind of defend it. Was one of the few best picture winners I could actually watch the whole movie without falling asleep.

Once in the theatre. It was sold out so we bought tickets to, I wanna say a James Bond film?, and snuck in the ‘sold out’ showing. Bull, there were like 20 empty seats. Didn’t mind it, the effects looked cool on the big screen. I’ve come across it on TV and I’ll watch a scene or two, but I’ve never sat through it in it’s entirety. Historically accurate mixed with fiction don’t really bode well with me.

‘Ugh. Hated Forrest Gump. Vastly overrated movie. Thought I was the only one that thought that way.’

Agreed. I thought it was one of the dumbest movies ever made. A happy idiot who just has incredible luck. This is worth celebrating?

Only watched it once. Avoided it for years but boyfriend bugged me to watch it so I did. Not as bad as I expected it to be. Reminded me of Jurassic Park.

2 or 3 times, once was forced. I hated that movie and watching it equates to mild torture.

Every time I watch Forest Gump I think it’s really entertaining . I don’t have an urge to watch it but when I do I appreciate it.

I don't think I've heard someone say Titanic is the greatest movie they've ever seen. Ever. Usually when the movie comes up the talk is negative.

I think it's a well made movie. Not great, but still very good. But I like all of James Cameron's movies. Well, Alita was mediocre, but he didn't direct it, so...

Once. That's not a knock on the film. I rarely watch anything twice.

Anything over 2 hrs is going to wear audiences down emotionally. Shawshank Redemption and Forrest Gump: 2hrs20. Titanic: 3hrs30. It was a good choice for a date. :)

Beats me. I haven't seen any for a long while.

I don't mean that as a bad thing at all, btw. I think it adds to the feeling that you've really been through something, and the best directors know how to use that to the fullest. For me, I reckon it's somewhere around the 2 hour mark where my defences break down. These days I just get the urge to sleep or go for a smoke or sth by that point, haha.

Not sure total, but three times in theaters, I remember it was a slow movie release schedule at the time and my options were limited, but it was good.
