What movie have you seen over and over again without ever getting bored?
And why do you love it so much that you keep watching it over and over?
As a movie buff, there are actually too many to name. One in particular that comes to mind is National Treasure. I don't even think it's that great of a movie, but I love history and it's always on. I always find myself watching it.
There is something about "National Treasure" that keeps you glued to the screen and wanting to see it over and over...
I love National Treasure too and I'm not even sure why. Luckily it seems to be on tv all the time!
An Officer and a Gentleman. I'll admit it looks a little dated these days, but still love it. There's drama, action, romance, heartbreak, and Richard Gere. Doesn't come much better than that!
There are quite a few, but the one that stands out for me is 'Serenity', mostly because I'm a big fan of the TV series 'Firefly'.
I don't always make a conscious effort to re-watch movies, but sometimes a film comes on television and I'll just drop everything and watch it. They're not even necessarily my favorite movies! I just can never not watch them when they're on. Among these are "The Great Escape" and "A Few Good Men".
I can think of several - and I never seem to tire of them. Star Trek TNG First Contact, Independence Day, and Jurassic Park. And one last one that is totally different from the above: Pillow Talk with Rock Hudson and Doris Day. I love those movies.
I can't really explain except that in those movies for me, the action and the plot never stalls. Some movies have slow points or parts you have to wade through. For me these movies keep moving so I never get bored.
Definitely, Forest Gump. I always seem to see a scene that I forgot about or didn't notice before.
Forest Gump is another one that I have seen over and over again and have never been bored by it.....it's just so good......
I have to say I don't remember ever watching Forest Gump. Not sure how I overlooked this movie. Will make it a point to check it out as everyone's talking about all the time.
I never get tired of watching The Departed. I love the ending where Matt Damon gets his due. Great movie.
There are a few that definitely come to mind.
Goodfellas is a movie I can watch constantly and never get tired of (it's also my all time favorite movie.) I love really any movie about the mob, and kind of idolize those people in a weird way. I just love everything about that movie.
Another one would definitely be Fast Times at Ridgemont High. In my opinion, as far as comedies go, it doesn't get much better than this movie.
There are so many but I will pick one: "Liar,liar", an hilarious Jim Carey movie with a great message. I love this movie and keep watching it because of the side-splitting laughter it gives, all the way to the end, through the outtakes during the credits. Also, his physical humor never gets old.
The Princess Bride. It has been in the news lately because of it's twenty-fifth anniversary. It has so many hilarious moments that never get old.
So many to name! Let's see...A Few Good Men, Erin Brockovich, Forest Gump, Happy Gilmore of course never gets old, but I mostly stick with the chick flicks or comedies. You can never have enough laughter and romance in your life!
Snatch! My favorite movie, I love Guy Richie movies so Sherlock Holmes and Lock Stock and two smoking barrels isn't too far behind either!
Yes. I've seen "Falling Down" with Michael Douglas (one of my favourite actors) several times. I never get tired of it. I think it is because it is very relevant to me (I can relate) from another time in my life. Thanks, Lena.
TOP GUN.. I know it is not very intellectual but I was a kid at the time.. I think I saw it for 20 times at least:)
Three movies that immediately come to mind are David Lynch's 'Mulholland Drive', Roman Polanksi's 'Chinatown' and, uhm....well....'Die Hard'.
Lynch is my favorite director, and Mulholland Drive' for me is his best work in terms of completeness. I can watch it for its beautifully complex story, but just as easily for the mesmerizing cinematography and music.
'Chinatown' has a very addictive effect on me, I could literally watch it every other day without ever getting sick of it. The crafty storytelling, the 1930s West Coast decor, Jack Nicholson; it just...fits.
And yeah, 'Die Hard' is just one of those trend setting genre classics. No-nonsense, explosions, Rickman, Willis, cheesy humor and even cheesier German, Christmas in L.A. What's not to love.
Great question! I can watch the fugitive and Taken over and over again. Both movies are "sit at the edge of your seat" movies. Also, I enjoy watching any "Star Trek" shows "The Next Generation".
For me it is Anastasia and Finding Neverland. There is something in the story that keeps bringing me back to those films
"The Godfather" trilogy. Not a dull moment in there ! Brilliantly acted and directed.
I have seen Pride and Prejudice.....the one with Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy & Jennifer Ehle as Elizabeth.....This was so wonderful & I've seen it at least 7 or 8 times now, and each time, I find it even more enjoyable.....Now other versions of this movie are not so great....I feel the other versions are boring & mediocre compared to the one with Colin Firth.......I could never be bored if I watch it 10 more times....it's that good.
I've seen this movie with Keira Knightley. Loved it.
In my DVD collection and watch it on rainy Sunday afternoons...love it everytime. Studied Jane Austen at school with a wonderful English teacher who brought all literature to life!
Any and all James Bond movies. My family will tell you that I can't stop watching them. Every time I watch them I find something new which just makes me want to watch them more.
There are so many classic movies going back over 70 years to choose from that I like to watch over and over, like “It’s A Wonderful Life” from 1946 that is still enjoyable every Christmas at my house. But usually I have a several favorite actors that make movies I could watch again and again. I also love science fiction films like Star Wars, Alien, Blade Runner, Forbidden Planet, The Matrix, The Planet of the Apes (1968), The Empire Strikes Back, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and action films like Goldfinger, Enter the Dragon, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and Raiders of the Lost Ark. As for comedy films like Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Blazing Saddles, National Lampoon's Animal House, What's Up, Doc?, Young Frankenstein, Bananas, Sleeper, Fast Times At Ridgemont High, and the classic Road To Morocco.
Gladiator! Gladiator! Apocalypto! i love the movies that are based on survival and whenever some one asks me to name a good movie, I suggest "Apocalypto" and "Gladiator" and then sit there and watch with them.
Gladiator, Heat, Snatch, Hot Millions, Jackie Brown. I don't often watch films, however, but if I am feeling below par and find myself with the need to sit down quietly for a bit and I don't want to read (which is rare) one of these films will take me away from my troubles for a while!
I love the movie overboard. Its an oldie with Goldie Hawn. I just love her in comedy. She goes from having everything to having nothing and realizes that family and people are more valuable than wealth. It even has a fantastic ending because well youll have to watch it to find out does she get it all? or end up with nothing? I love this movie.
Oh, man I forgot about that one, I could watch Overboard all day long!!! I loved those kids, even when they were brats...lol...especially when they glued her hands to the plates
I will watch "Overboard" whenever I see it on tv, even if already started. I felt bad for Goldie Hawn, but it made her a better person and the kids too.
totally tugged my heart when her son screamed, U said Mom's don't leave.....great flic!!
James Cameron's Avatar... I watched it 7 times in theaters, and bought it twice on DVD (I lost the first copy during a move). I have watched it an unknown number of times in my own home and I still love it Not only that but I have the soundtrack and some replica jewelry and figurines from the movie.
I'm pretty much obsessed.
'Avatar' was one amazing movie. I think watching it in theaters is a million times better than watching it at home, even on Blu-Ray. I watched it twice - once in theaters and once at home. Wouldn't mind watching it again though.
No doubt about it, that movie needs to be seen in a theater to get the "full effect."
This is one I would see again. Want to see on Blue-Ray.
Titanic and Top Gun! I had to see Tom (babyface) Cruise and Leonardo di (babyface) Caprio because I was absolutely sure they were meant for....me!
I'd still watch those movies and I'd cry still at the same moments with the same kind of sadness....
Some would say I'm a little coocoo...LOL!
I've seen Titanic in theaters, and then on DVD at my uncle's house and on TV. It's a very long movie, especially when watched on TV with all those commercial breaks but I never get tired of it. I'd go watch it right now. The movie is timeless.
Batman Begins, any of the matrix movies, Idiot (Russian series with English subtitles) based on Dostoyevsky's Book by same name. Really any movie that makes me think, moves my emotions. Gladiator, Braveheart, for courage, strength and principles that are reflected in them.
I am from Belarus and I've not seen Idiot series. Haven't even heard of it... Wow! I am surprised I didn't know about this.
Here's a link to Amazon, they have a 4 DVD set, the one I borrowed from a friend was 10 DVD's.

Can't Buy me Love from the 80s with Patrick Dempsey as a teenager
The Prince of Egypt. Great story-telling, great music, great art.
I love the film Shenandoah starring James Stewart. I saw it as a child at the Cinema and have since since it countless times on TV. It's a1965 movie set in the time of the American Civil War.
It's sad in parts, and hilarious in others (even having seen it so many times I still want to laugh out loud). It is a very family oriented film but also has a political theme running through it. There are both tender moments and action scenes. I fail to see how anyone could not like this film - there is something for everyone. Do see it if you haven't already.
Quite a few, Godfather 1 and 2, Braveheart, and Ten Commandments.
Wow, this is quite a difficult one, I must say one movie that will always capture my senses must be "The Departed" featuring Leonardo di Caprio, Jack Nicholson and Matt Damon.
I love movies, and I'll re-watch many a movie depending upon my mood.
The one movie I've seen more than any other is "Das Boot" -- about a German U-boat during WW 2. I've seen the English dubbed version, the German with English subtitles and the 6-hour miniseries for German television. Perhaps I've seen it a dozen times or more. Rich with character, feeling and evocative scenes. It has a way of taking even the subject of boredom and making it interesting.
After that, I love Casablanca, Star Wars, Star Trek - First Contact, What Dreams May Come, and many others.
Plus, I love a few documentaries, too, like "Inside Job" (about the 2008 financial crash), and one that I saw for the first time yesterday, I've already seen twice called, "Thrive," available on YouTube,
I love a movie called "Mulan". It is a cartoon movie. I like the form of that cartoon movie. I can watch again and again.
My favourite movie to watch over and over again is '"Weeping Camel", it's a Mongolian film and one not to be missed. Also love watching "Unmistaken Child" which is a Tibetan film, plus Monsoon Wedding -Indian film, the list goes on goes on..
I have a bunch also...
Return to Me
and on, and on, and on.
For me without any doubt it is 'Gunfight at the OK Corral' The fabulous Burt Lancaster as Wyatt Earp and the fabulous Kirk Douglas as the 'Doc' was a masterstroke in casting. All the actors / actresses in the film were tip top. A film from the days when real men were Kings of the silverscreen.
HBO's John Adams, Downton Abbey, and Gone With The Wind are my top three. I enjoy history. I love how they treated one another, even if they disagreed. Being a seamstress, I also love to see all the clothes.
I never get tired of watching "Mister Nobody". It is a film which is all about choices in life and death. I recommend it to you, it is a must-see.
Every time I watch 2001 A Space Odyssey, I see it in a different way. Perhaps it is because the movie is so rich with symbolism and every time I see it I am coming from a different perspective - the place and time that I am experiencing at that moment.
There are many other movies that I adore and watch often, but it is more like revisiting a past experience that was worthwhile. With 2001 A Space Odyssey, it is slightly new experience.
HOOSIERS! Gene Hackman plays the coach of a small Indiana school basketball team. Compassion, forgiveness, and the simplicity of the 50's along with great action creates a feeling of years gone by in my aging soul.
Gone in 60 seconds. I really like the drivings in the movie and I watched it over 7 times.
For me watching The Godfather trilogy is an event. I usually take a weekend and have great italian food all weekend and of course a canolli. One time I spent the whole weekend in bed doing this, what fun! Other movies I can't pass up when there on is The Departed, Enemy of the State, A Few Good Men, and a recent watch I saw on video, 13 Days; about the Cuban Missle Crisis of 1962. And for laughs its, ELF. Reasons: I love human nature, Good and Evil, the passions of people in their situations and True life events like (13 Days) also where choices in life can take you.
I adore French movies,one of them is Big blue,great film,excellent actors.Few days ago I watched Untouchables-story .true one about friendship.
I have easily watch Empire Records over 100 times throughout the years and it never gets old.
I almost didn't click on this question because I figured the answers would be pretty predictable. Who knew how much people would connect with their favorite movies and how much they would tell about themselves! I loved reading the different answers. Congrats on a good choice of questions!
Sometimes I'm just in the mood to watch "The Sting" or "Duplicity" or "Moonstruck" - usually to see the compelling character actors working their magic.
I have quite a few but if I have to narrow it down to one, I would say Harlem Nights.

Is there a movie you could watch over and over again?

Did you watch a PG 13 movie or R rated movie when you were little? Would you let your child?I remember watching some movies that people said were age inappropriate when I was small. I thought I turned out all right. The debate comes up about my young daughter and movies. Do you think it is more...

Among my least favorite films are SHINING THROUGH and I AM SAM.My least favorite movie experiences usually involve somebody talking. What's that Darren Aronofsky film with the tree? I forget, but I do remember two old people sitting behind me and when the tree in the bubble shows up, one turns to...
