What movie(s) can you watch 1,000+ times, and it never gets old?
Offhand I can name a few...
Lord of the Rings
Star Wars (IV, V, VI)
Memoirs of a Geisha
Pride & Prejudice
There are many movies I love particularly animation bags. So I can watch them many times and still love them like Beauty and the Beast and Up. Also, I loved Sound of Music too and all the songs in them
Wizard of Oz
Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan
War of the Worlds ( Original Film )
Driving Ms. Daisy
Agree with all of those - except I haven't watched both Memoirs of a Geisha and Pride & Prejudice, so I guess I'm missing out.
I'd add Gladiator in there, The Dark Knight, Watchmen... I'm forgetting a few but I'll get back to you.
Tango and Cash
Just about any Disney movie
Any Miyazaki movie
And that's all I can think of for now.
The Little mermaid
and so many more but thats my top 3
Legends of the Fall
I'll only name one movie- I do have some other favorites, but only one I would classify in this manner.
My Fair Lady!
This movie seems to be an ageless wonder.
Love this question.
One Fine Day
Air Force One
Charlie's Angels (the late 90's version)
Mission Impossible 2
(Charlie's Angels and MI 2 were the first DVDs I ever owned; I watched them so much growing up and still love them just as much!)
Any of the series:
That is all I can think of for now...
The 13th Warrior (I probably HAVE watched it 1,000 times)
Last of the Mohicans
Monty Python's The Holy Grail
The Mirror Has Two Faces
The Truth about Cats and Dogs
Sense and Sensibility (or any Jane Austen novel)
Almost any Alfred Hitchcock movie but Under Capricorn springs to mind
A really old David Niven film called 'A matter of life and death.' It one loads of awards including best musical score. Check it out, although its old, its' concepts and cinematography are exceptional.
Oh and the Chronicles of Riddick but for much less lofty reasons than the last film I recommended.
I could watch and have watched the following movies 1000 times:
We Were Soldiers
Full Metal Jacket
National Lampoons Christmas Vacation
What can I say? There's little else to do in Iraq on our down time.
any monty python
any bruce lee
felix the cat
I have several I can watch repeatedly.
Gone With The Wind
The Wizard of Oz
Harry Potter (all of them)
almost any animated Disney movie
Labyrinth, Princess Bride, Star Wars(the originals), Resevoir Dogs, The Big Lebowski, Pan's Labyrinth, American History X, American Beauty, Donnie Darko, Spiral Staircase, Diabolique(the original..not Demi Moore...)The watchmen....oh man, I love movies!
I've not seen Spiral Staircase or Diabolique but the rest of those are all great movies.
I'm adding them to my list too.
I'll add them to my to-watch list if I can find anywhere to get them from without actually having to pay money for them, lol. Old creepy horrors are good.
All this talk of good movies has put me in the mood to go watch something. But what shall it be.
No to Netlix, I'm using mobile broadband which means I have download limits, so streaming is out. But I have a friend who downloads pretty much everything new that comes out and burns them off for me.
Don't have Nosferatu either.
I've just stumbled across Brewsters Millions though which I haven't seen in a while, could be good for a cheeky pre-sleep giggle.
Have fun then. I get my old movies fix from Netflix, not free, but not as expensive as TV. hmmmm...you should jsut suck it up and buy some moveis Mr V. I would send you some, but I dont really know how...
never seen brewsters millions..
Pulp Fiction, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Fight Club, One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest, Catch-22, The Life Aquatic, V for Vendetta, I'm a Cyborg But That's OK, The Shining, Aliens...
Armagedon,faceoff,the rock,rounders,class action,class act,gladiator,the messenger,braveheart,transformer and gijoe(cartoon version). im stoppin there.
HAHAHA!! and also Up. "squirrel"...and Flushed Away, Aladdin, Nightmare Before Christmas, Dumbo
One of my favourite family-friendly animations, although UP has given it a run for its money for the title of best in that category.
I loved Finding Nemo! That's my kind of movie. Non-threatening, non-violent and entertaining with a happy ending!
Pulp Fiction Kick-ass forrest gump risky-business A clockwork orange and the hangover
Everybody has mentioned the names of a lot of great films, but how many can you REALLY watch over and over? I don't believe there can be that many that folk want to repeat watch, although there are ones worth going back to.
I've seen UP - great film, I will watch it again. Memories of a Geisha? Great film, but the book was better IMO.
Kick Ass, still to see it, but got it on my laptop.
There's been loads of great movies, but how many can you watch 1,000 times? I tried my best with the Harry Potter films. Managed to see several of them maybe 6 times, then got fed up.
Watched Avatar 3 times.
Finding Nemo? About 20 times then I got fed up with it. Boy in Striped Pyjamas? Twice so far, but I'll watch it again.
Why not just ask which films are worth watching more than once? lol
and my #1 - ALL TIME - ever and ever favorite is:
I love that show!
Children of Men
Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid
A Hard Day's Night
2) War of the Worlds
3) Westward the Women
4) Last of the Mohicans
5) To Kill a Mockingbird
Pump up the volume
Town called Alice
Pay it Forward
Last night I watched the new Sherlock Homes movie - excellent - will probably watch it many times - if you like that Vitorian Sluth period with a hint of modernism then this is the movie for you - it really was great
My friend used to have only one DVD (apart from the ones he could not tell his GF about), so we used to watch it every friday night after a night out, we got to the point where we watched it with the sound down and we used to do all the dialog..
That's an excellent one! Have you read the book on which it's based: P. K. Dick's _Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep_? As great as the movie is, I think the book is better.
As far as movies I can watch over and over again: Silence of the Lambs, Interview with a Vampire, Misery, and Pink Floyd's Live at Pompeii are on the top of my list.
I read the book years ago when I first saw the film...
I am waiting for them to do a film of the Hobbit after watching the Lord of The Rings films...
I can't normally watch films over and over again as it annoys me too much as I know what is going to happen... I like to watch new films, but there are no cinemas out here, illegal! So have to buy dvds,
Where are you? Hell? Why on earth are cinemas illegal??
Saudi Arabia.... from the UK but work here....
Everything is illegal here........... why do you think I have nothing better to do in the evenings than be on here...
The DVDs are illegal also so bought on th eblack market... even the TV has the womens cleavage and legs shaded over if they show too much flesh as if they are the victims on some crime show that can't be identified..
Lovely place... some guy has just started a saudi thread I am so looking forward to joining in.... lol
LOL...I thought you came on here in the evenings to hang out with me!
Honestly, I don't know how you stand it if that's how it is there. I really can't imagine living in a place where government/religion controls so much of what I consider to be "normal" life. Are you planning on staying there??
wages too good to turn down, I need another 3-4 years then I can consider early retirement...
To be honest, even with the rules, you make of the place what ever you want.. rules are only a problem if you are caught breaking them...
I see. I bet it's not the same (wage-wise) for women, is it?
Yeah, but if you ARE caught breaking the rules, then what happens?
Depends which rules you break.... the offending bits could be chopped off..
Adultery still has a death penalty associated with it...
Best not to get caught doing anything, or being in a position that you can be accused of doing something as proof is not necessarily required from what I have seen..
I have known people here who claim that they have been raped and robbed by the police here ....
Wages for women are not an issue here, few work! In the company that I work in the women are actually paid the same as the men, but our company is not a pure saudi company...
However the wage scale has more to do with nationality than sex, saudis get good wages (and do no work), then westerners and other arabs get reasonable wages, professional Pakistanis then make "ok" money, moving down through Filipinos, Indians, Indonesians, to Bangladeshis who may only earn $150 per month....
If they're not working...what do the women DO? OMG, I would go crazy.
Yes, it certainly sounds as though it's best not to get caught doing anything...YIKES. No one wants bits chopped off, offending or otherwise, but I bet it saves them tons of money on imprisonment!
You know, I'd be really interested in some Hubs on your birds'-eye view of the life and culture over there. I'm sure they'd make great reads and I'd learn a lot.
What bit do they chop off if they catch you with DVDs?
- Legends of the Fall
- Brave Heart
- Forest Gump
- Shaw shank Redemption
- Thin Red Line
- Scent of A Woman
2 Fast 2 Furious. That film is just so unintentionally hilarious.
Also, a lot of French horror such as Inside, Martyrs and Frontiers. I like to appreciate the amount of time spent on prosthetics.
Interview With A Vampire
Repo! The Genetic Opera
The perfect storm
Here's a few that haven't been mentioned that are definitely AWESOME:
Pursuit of Happiness
Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels
Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas
And I second Legends of the Fall, Shawshank Redemption, and Braveheart for sure.
