Best 3 movies to rewatch?

    lizzyroeposted 6 years ago

    I recently asked what books hubbers like to reread, and I thought it would be interesting to know the same thing about movies. It's a little easier to rewatch movies though, so let's stick with your top 3 favorites that you can rewatch any time and still love.

    My Top 3:
    Slumdog Millionaire
    Hitch
    Beauty and the Beast (best Disney movie ever!)

      I love movies. My responses are:

      His Girl Friday
      Once Upon a Time in the West
      The Quiet Man

      1. MalcolmKlock profile image59
        MalcolmKlockposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        Nice choices. His Girl Friday is so sharp and funny, I mean it's a real classic movie with the style and grace of Grant and Russell to anchor it, but its really quick and clever and full of rapid fire Aaron Sorkin style dialog. So ahead of its time, and still such fun.

      Titanic

      H'mm,my three films that I would gladly re-watch would be

      1. The Incredibles, arguably the best Pixar has ever done, and it is equally popular with adults as with kids.

      2. Heat - with Al Pacino and Rbert de Niro, a pure joy to watch. I especially love the gunfight against the police - which the Director based on actual events in the USA when a group of heavily armed criminals held the police at bay and were armed with protective vests and it was crazy stuff. For the star power alone, it's hard to beat.

      3. The Jungle Book - I don't know why I rate this film so highly. The bear Baloo and the boy Mowgli, a very enduring friendship so convincingly brought to life on the screen through animation. The day I saw this film, I knew that with animation - anything is possible. I have a thing for characters that are convincing and realistic. I am sure there are thousands of other possible film threesomes too.

      joe w bennettposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      I think I'd have to divide my response into categories. For classic films, three of my Top 10 would be:

      1. "The Searchers"--John Ford's best western and John Wayne's best role
      2. "The Seven Samurai"--Akira Kurosawa's homage to Hollywood westerns
      3. "Animal Crackers"--not The Marx Brothers' most consistently hilarious film
           but the highs make up for the occasional dull patches

    Welcome to HubPages Lizzyroe! smile Nice to meet you. I saw your other thread, but do not read many books. However, I do collect movies and that brings me to a little dilemma.

    One of my favorite movies is the Matrix Trilogy, and that consists of 3 movies. So, that would wipe out all choices.

    On another note- Iron Man and The American President would be my runner's up to the Matrix.

    1. Norah Casey profile image80
      Norah Caseyposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      My brothers love the Matrix trilogy. I think it went downhill after the first one, but that sort of talk would get me in trouble at family gatherings. smile

        mrpopoposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        Ah I agree, the first Matrix was definitely the better of the three. Good fight scenes in all three, but the storyline just got weird after the first.

        My choices:

        Gladiator
        The Dark Knight
        Avatar

        1. mrpopo profile image88

      2. Cagsil profile image60
        Cagsilposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        I think the graphics were over done in the last two movies. However, The Matrix was the best. wink If the other two are near me, after I watch the first one and I have time, then you can better believe I'll watch the entire series in one sitting. wink

              Sorry Beth, it's quite a distance and would be unable to make, due to other factors. Not to mention, if I went to Canada, I might not make home alive....because I would have to stop in other places to see other people as well, otherwise, I hurt their feelings too, because of being in the "neighborhood", so to speak and didn't drop in. hmm

    idk, it's tough for me to say since there's a lot of great movies that i could name.  plus, im feeling too lazy right now to even bother listing some of them. however, it amazes me how much people seem to think the wachowski brothers are creative geniuses for creating the matrix trilogy, even though they're other movies bombed pretty hard at the box office.  yet people STILL consider them great directors?  Oh well.  it's like Michael Bay and Stephen Sommers; how those guys are still able to dupe people into accepting action and special effects over substance and quality, I"ll never figure out.  however, it is fun to watch, and make fun of in reviews.  i know as a kid, i used to be a lot more ruder about films that I thought sucked.  good thing i've grown to be a lot more nicer of a person about films that i think suck over the years. otherwise, hubpages might ban me for cursing about how bad some movies are these days.  lol.

    I'm not a big movie watcher--
    but "Shawshank Redemption" just comes together in such a satisfying way.

    "Gone With The Wind"-- though the old style is a little cheesy, it is still epic, and it helps you to relate to the brilliant Carol Burnett parody.

    And-- almost abashed to admit: "Sound of Music". Can't resist re-watching that every few years.

    #2- Pitch Black - Vin Diesel - Sci Fi at its best

      I so agree with you about any Cary Grant movie. He knew how to be, rather than act. Very natural. So funny in his younger days, then careful, serious and reserved in some of his later movies. A winner all-around, my fave hollywood star of all-time.
