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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
A favorite classic...It's a Wonderful Life... watch it every Christmas. Even watched it once a few months ago, have it on DVD. If anyone hasn't seen it, it is a must see...we are all needed, we all have a purpose no matter how big or small.
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.
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.
'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.
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 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.
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,
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..
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. Graham.
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.
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.
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 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.
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...
