    Okay so I have watched quite a few movies again and again and again...I have watched maybe 10 movies more than 5 times.

    What about you guys? How many movies have you watched more than let's say 5 times? You don't have to name them if yuo don't want to or how many times you have watched them...only if you want to though big_smile


    I have watched Take the Lead, Must Love Dogs, Tamara, Newsies, 27 Dresses, Princess Diaries and Princess Diaries 2 more than 5 times just to name a few...watching Must Love Dogs as we speak. big_smile

    Your turn!

        It is interesting, (at least to me) that I am attracted to movie situations that have no real-life alluring counterpart.  I love boxing movies for instance, Cinderella Man, Million Dollar Baby, but hate boxing.

    I've watched Hayao Miyazaki's Spirited Away and My Neighbor Totoro a zillion times!!

    I've also watched Interview With the Vampire a lot, Korean horror film A Tales of Two Sisters often, as well as Italian film Cinema Paradiso.

    Gotta love foreign films!

      Last movie I saw was Revolutionary Road.  Can't say it's a movie I'd watch over and over again, but it made me think.  An interesting depiction of life and marriage.  Anyone seen it?

        I can't say that I would watch that one again.  Not because it wasn't good,  but movies like that, that address such heavy topics, are hard to sit through more than once (for me at least).  I did think it was good...doesn't make me want to run down the aisle and get married though... smile More than anything, I thought it was a subtle commentary on how mental illness affects relationships.  BTW - I hear the book is amazing...it's on my list.

      Sneak the top of your list brings this to mind: 

      My dad loves Clint Eastwood movies and James Bond movies.  Growning up, my mother did not appreciate these.  We had only one TV in the house.  He would always say "But this is the one I haven't seen before."  Of course she would grudgingly relent and find something else to do.  Some of these movies that he'd never seen before, I watched with him several times over the years. 

      My sister and step brother live with me.  On occasion, we evoke Frank at our house and say "But this is the one I've never seen before!"

        The best line in a movie was said by Angela Lansbury "Ray why dont you play a game of solitaire"-there was an air of menace about it but absolutely brilliant.
                                  What a pity theres no "Rays" about to have a quiet word with some of these wasters running these unreal"reality" shows-the high trousered type.
                                                 Some people have said that Sinatra wasnt a good actor-but he acted in many good films,Suddenly was another example of that genre-the man with the golden arm another example.

        My husband and I have probably watched "Dumb and Dumber" 10 times, lol...it just cracks us up every time!big_smile

        And every Christmas, we have to watch "Christmas Vacation", with Chevy Chase...

        We haven't watched a lot of newer movies, but I know we've seen Clint Eastwood's "Gran Torino" five times by now, and also "No Country for Old Men"--those are both fantastic movies!

        Tom doesn't like "Phantom of the Opera"(the latest version, with Gerard Butler), but our son, Larkin, and I have watched it at least six times together--we love it, lol...big_smile

          I watch a lot of movies over and over, mainly cause there just ain't anything worth watching on tv  these days.  There's too many to name them all, but I do have some favorites.

          Ok, here we go:

          Just about any John Wayne Movie (way more than 5 times)
          Mister Roberts
          The Matchmaker
          Arsenic and Old Lace
          The Desk Set
          Guess Who's Coming To Dinner ( Hepburn & Tracey)
          The African Queen
          The Day The Earth Stood Still (Original Version)
          Men In Black
          Lost in Translation
          Calendar Girls
          My Big Fat Greek Wedding
          Home Fries
          The Philadelphia Story
          The Ghost and Mr. Chicken
          The Ghost and Mrs. Muir
          Jane Erye (Orson Welles Version)

          There are many more, but these are my favorites.
