This Wisconsin Dude Has Seen ‘Captain Marvel’ 116 Times
Is there a movie that you've watched over and over and over again? The first one that comes to mind for me is Dumb & Dumber; I've probably watched that more times than I can count since it came out all the way back in 1994. But I still probably haven't seen it over 100 times. I don't think there's anything I've seen over 100 times.
But Wisconsinite Steve Ruppel can't say the same, because there's at least one flick where he's racked up a triple-digit view count: 'Captain Marvel,' which only came out a little over a month ago. As of this writing, Steve has seen it 116 times.
So how many hours has Steve spent watching Captain Marvel on the big screen? With a 125-minute runtime, that's around 241 hours, or about 10 days.
That's not the craziest part to me, though. Assuming he only paid $5 for a ticket (which is being very generous), that's still at least $580 for one movie. In one day, he saw it seven times. He explained how this was even possible:
"I've had to take time off work, I would take long lunch breaks to accommodate watching an entire movie in that particular time frame. And then just time on the weekends where I'm not doing other things."
So why did Steve decide to see this movie on loop so many times? He wanted to go for the record, of course.
"I wasn't even sure why it was even a record, but I thought after a while, 'I should probably do that.'
...So I'm trying to think, if anyone wanted to break this, I really don't want to re-break it. Cause this has been pretty tough. It's been a finite amount of time, but I don't think I'm going to try this again."
The funny thing? I still haven't seen it yet. Maybe I should ask Steve if it's any good.
