    What 3 movies will you never tire of watching, no matter how many times you've seen them?

    I can watch "Lady Sings the Blues," "Aliens," and "Liar, Liar" over and over with the same enjoyment everytime. How about you?

    The Matrix (first one only), Blade (again, first one only) and Terminator 2.

    "The Pelican Brief," "Legally Blonde," and "Sister Act."

    A little factoid: If you watch the scene in "Sister Act" where Pope John Paul II (or the actor who plays him) can be seen from the back watching the performance, you can see the actor who plays the man who will be the future Benedict XVI beside him. : )

      It is a long one - but one of those I can either pay attention to or just have on in the background.  Certain scenes, though, catch my attention every time - usually the ones that make me cry.

    I also enjoy watching movies, my favorite movie that I watched recently was "That's My Boy", starring Adam Sandler, it was so funny, I was in stitches throughout the movie! Forrest Gump always has me in tears and excitement and Police Academy movies are still  great to watch.

    3. "Star Wars (Part IV: A New Hope)"

    A close fourth place would be "Ghostbusters." They're all movies from my childhood, and most of the time when I watch them, it makes me feel like I'm 12 years old and pretending to be sick so I can stay home from school and watch movies all day :-D

    Lor's Storiesposted 5 years ago

    I think my first would be
    "To kill a A Mockingbird
    "Stepmom"
    "Moonstruck"
    To Kill a Mockingbird was the first adult movie my mom and I really discussed.
    It breaks down barriers between race, and a person they assume is " crazy"
    That would be Boo

    Stepmom. I just love the scenery and the gracious way Susan and Julia Roberts accept radical changes.
    Susan Sarandon loves being a mom and realizes she has to hand it over to Isabel
    ( Julia Roberts) who learns how to become something she never wanted to be.
    The kids rebel but grow to love Isabel
    And Luke. Gets to love both Jackie and Isabel.

    Moonstruck!!  Try growing up in an Italian family.
    We always talk in the kitchen.
    We go to confession:)
    We all want the " perfect Wedding "
    And food solves everything.

    This is a tough one!
    Well my #1 pick would have to be the director's cut of Almost Famous, because it is my all time favorite movie.  I think I can quote almost ever single line!
    #2 and 3 might be a bit more difficult to choose... there are so many!
    Ok, I'll go with Forrest Gump as my #2 choice.  Such an amazing movie.  I feel like Tom Hanks completely threw himself into this character, and all we see is Forrest; it doesn't even seem like Hanks at all.
    And #3 would have to be The Breakfast Club.  I actually just watched this movie last night!  It's such a great representation of teenage angst and the feelings of wanting to be accepted as who we are.

    There's a great number of movies I watch every couple of years, and some I watch a couple times every year . . . there are musicals, old Fred Astaire films, 'West Side Story,', 'Carousel', etc, that I'll watch again and again.

    1. 'A Tale Of Two Cities' (1935 with Ronald Colman) ~ it's flawless.
    2. 'The Warriors' ~ beautiful in it's own way, creative and vivid

    Great question, I'm going to have to go with
    1.The Ten Commandments
    It's a powerful movie with awesome music. I will be doing something that I don't like doing and I'll just think back to the slaves in Egypt and what they went through. All of a sudden the music starts in my head and my task does not seem so daunting.
    2.The Twilight Zone (the movie)
    I do not really care for the whole movie, but there's a part in the movie that brings me to tears almost every time. It's the scene were all the old folks are playing kick the can and they become young again. It's a great scene if you have never seen it.
    3.The Passion of the Christ
    I'm not trying to turn this into a religious discussion. But the scene were Jesus is carrying the cross and He falls down right in front of His mother. Then she flashes back in time to when He was a little boy falling down. It was that feeling of helplessness, to sit there and watch your child being abused in such a horrible manor. That scene makes me think of my own kids and how horrible it would be to see them get hurt in such a violent way.
    I have many others I love but there is not enough time to list them all.
    Thank you again for the great question.
