    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...

    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!

    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".

    1. lovebuglena profile image87
      lovebuglenaposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      I don't necessarily make it a point to re-watch movies but often when I turn on the TV and a movie is on that I've already seen I'll end up watching it anyway and I won't get bored.

    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.

    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. smile

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Great question!

    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,

    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.

    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.

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.

    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.
