How often do you rewatch films? New research carried out for the Sky Store has found that one in four people in the UK watch some films up to ten times, often because they've forgotten the plot or are struggling to unravel a complex story. The most popular films for watching again are as follows:-

  1. Raiders Of The Lost Ark
  2. Star Wars
  3. Back To The Future
  4. Home Alone
  5. E.T.
  6. Jaws
  7. Jurassic Park
  8. Independence Day
  9. Titanic
  10. Alien

The survey found that the average person watched at least one film 29 times in their lifetime, though it's not clear if this indicates love for a particular film or simply relates to how often it's on television.
