Do you watch some movies over and over?

Asked by BoBo1946 (15315points) August 1st, 2010

There are a hand full that I never get tired of watching. Last night watched Grease for about the 10th time. Also, every Christmas, always watch, “It Is A Wonderful Life!”

“Summer Nights” – John Travolta/Olivia Newton-John is awesome!

Would you like to share movies that you watch more than once?

LuckyGuy's avatar

No. Life is too short.. I enjoy a movie I have not seen much more than one I have seen already – even if I loved it. I feel the same way when I watch TV. If I have seen the episode, I change the channel or turn it off.
I did watch “Sixth Sense” and “Memento” twice. I just had to. You understand.

BoBo1946's avatar

CherrySempai's avatar

Frenchfry's avatar

BoBo1946's avatar

Frenchfry's avatar

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

The Green Mile
Chicago
Full Metal Jacket
My Big Fat Greek Wedding
Fight Club
Forgetting Sarah Marshall
The Seven Year Itch
I almost forgot Mamma Mia. It’s disgusting how many times I can watch that movie and never get sick of it.

Austinlad's avatar

Yes, to the point of being able to recite whole scenes of dialog. Having list count of the number of times I’d watched “It’s a Wonderful Life,” I’ve cut back to once every couple of years, but ask me to do conversation when Barrymore tries to get Stewart to go to work for him, I’ll give it to you almost word for word. There are countless movies I watch again and again because the story and acting are so good, and I always come away from them with something new. To name a few, 12 Angry Men, Seven Days in May, Dodsworth, the original The Thing, Knocked Up, Becket, Manchurian Candidate, Fight Club, Some Came Running, The Third Man, Citizen Kane, almost any movie with Woody Allen (esp. Annie Hall and Manhattan), any movie by the producers Pressburger Powell (known as The Archers), the directors Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles and David Mamet, anything with Bogart, (esp. Maltese Falcon, African Queen, Key Largo), Welles, Sinatra, and just about every film that I’ve reviewed on my personal movie review site. ‘Scuse me … I have to go re-watch a movie.

SeventhSense's avatar

There’s too many to list. Often it’s not even intentional. My latest one was Gran Torino with Clint Eastwood. I’ve seen it like three times. Some stories, acting and writing are just so damn compelling you just get caught up in it when it’s on. And quite honestly a director like Eastwood is just so good at his craft and that’s a rarity. A good story is worth a hundred times more than any CGI effects. Although I find it easier to leave, take a shower or go to bed halfway through the film the second time around.

Aster's avatar

I am nuts over woody allen movies too but they don’t seem to be on that often. I got tired of Grease; watched it too many times. I bought the CD. lol Mine are:
Sleepless
Driving Miss Daisy
The Odd Couple (I know the script now)
Planes, Trains and Automobiles
The Seven Year Itch
Summer of ‘42
Giant
Sleeping With the Enemy
Pretty Baby w/Brooke Shields – Love this !
Fried G Tomatoes bored me to Tears!!

Aster's avatar

@BoBo1946 Did u really mean Olivia has the most beautiful voice of all time?? What about Streisand?

SeventhSense's avatar

@Aster
Woody is a master story teller and movie maker.
And although I thoroughly enjoyed Vicky Cristina Barcelona, I wish he would have narrated. The “similar” sounding guy is just not the same.

Berserker's avatar

Oh yeah, do I ever. I’ve watched Halloween from one to six so many times, (Including number three that nobody likes.) Romero’s zombie trilogy, Corpse Bride and trainspotting. Those are all the ones I’ve seen at least more than 15 times, but there are some few others I’ve seen quite often too.

ipso's avatar

My ultimate war movie:
– The fist half of – Jull Metal Jacket (1987)
– Followed by the fist half of – Apocalypse Now (1979)
– Followed by the fist half of – Saving Private Ryan (1998)
Fletch (1985)
State and Main (2000)
Heathers (1989)
Office Space (1999)

These are by far the most re-watched movies in the arsenal. (Fight Club (1999) is working its way in.)

If I were to imaging a movie HELL – it would include endless Woody Allen narration with Barbara Streisand mouth-shape-singing Tomorrow and dancing in the background.

boxer3's avatar

Titanic. The Notebook. ha.
Natural Born Killers
Girl Interrupted
The Nail
Pulp Fiction
Most of the Batman movies

The more I think about it, the more I realize there are alot of movies
I watch over and over again and don’t get sick of.
I also like to watch certain television shows by the series like

Trailer Park Boys
Oz and
The Boondocks

Aster's avatar

@SeventhSense For me, Woody Allen’s personality and the way he presents himself as a neurotic wreck is just so entertaining.
I’m so surprised he’s still married to that young girl Mia adopted. Whatever she has, it’s working.

perspicacious's avatar

Sure. I know the entire dialogue from Rudy.

SeventhSense's avatar

@Aster
I guess it was more real than anyone gave him credit for.

Neizvestnaya's avatar

The “I Claudius” series every year around Thanksgiving or Christmas

Anything Monty Python.

SuperMouse's avatar

The one movie I have seen literally hundreds of times (all prior to having children) is The Godfather.

zannajune's avatar

mrentropy's avatar

BoBo1946's avatar

@Aster hey, either is great!

Frenchfry's avatar

@Aster Sorry still getting used to the @ thing Miss daisy. I love the movie.

Aster's avatar

I am addicted to Driving AND to Morgan Freeman. Wow; what a combination. I think he got an Oscar for that one. I hope
There is a class movie , very old, that I have with Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez: THE LONG, LONG TRAILER and now that I think about it , I have not seen it since we moved. I bet no one else has seen it?

mrentropy's avatar

@Aster I’ve seen it a few times :)

Aster's avatar

hard to not get re-hooked on Titanic! (I forgot)
@mrentropy You’ve seen Trailer????

Aster's avatar

We should all get together, break out the popcorn and watch movies. But I get to see one of MINE or I’m not coming! LOL

tedibear's avatar

There are some movies that if I encounter them on TV, I will stop to watch. We’ll see how many I remember:

When Harry Met Sally
You’ve Got Mail
Apollo 13
Grease
Animal House
The Breakfast Club

Those are the definite “watches.” For Mr. Tedibear, it’s any of the Bourne Trilogy.

MacBean's avatar

I watch most movies at least twice and I couldn’t even begin to name all the ones I’ve watched more than that.

TexasDude's avatar

I watch Zombieland, Youth in Revolt, and Trick r Treat over and over and over again. They are my top three favorite movies.

wilma's avatar

@Aster, re: The Long Long Trailer, Yes I have seen it several times. We have a teacher at our school who shows it to the fourth grade kids as a treat. He makes them guess why he shows it to them during “Michigan week”.

The trailer was made here in Michigan, near where we live.

Aster's avatar

@wilma Really ? That is so neat !

CherrySempai's avatar

Haha, this question just keeps me coming back for more. :) I remembered another!

October Sky

Trillian's avatar

Absolutely:
A&E’s Pride and Prejudice
The Princess Bride
Aliens
A Christmas Story
Willow
Boondock Saints
most of the MST3K episodes
All of the zombie movies I’ve loved
I still like getting together with friends on a Saturday afternoon and having a James Bond fest. We’ll watch two or three, eat, drink, laugh… it’s a good time.
Resident Evil (s)
Holy Grail
Meaning of Life
Life of Brian
Really, too long of a list. I guess this confirms my state of nuthood for a lot of Jellies.

zannajune's avatar

@Trillian Oh yes, I forgot about The Princess Bride. Can’t even recall how many times I’ve seen that.

MissAusten's avatar

This is a big shocker, but I never get tired of “Pride and Prejudice”. Both the BBC version and the Kiera Knightly version. Along those same lines, I could watch “Emma” and “Sense and Sensibility” over and over. I usually watch at least one of them when my husband is out of town, or if I’m sick and get to stay in bed.

Others:
The Princess Bride
The Empire Strikes Back
almost anything with Will Smith
Indiana Jones (all of them)
The Breakfast Club
One Fine Day
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Gone with the Wind
most of the Disney Pixar movies

I always make fun of my husband because if any of the Rocky movies are on TV, he has to watch them. The other movie he will watch over and over is “The Notebook.” I like it too, but he is addicted to that one. Since he’s not on Fluther, I can also share with you all that he loves the Twilight movies. I never get tired of making fun of him for watching it over and over.

muppetish's avatar

In general, I have seen my favourite comedies too many times to count (such as Clue, Young Frankenstein, and Monty Python and the Holy Grail.) But the one film my older brother relentlessly teases me over the number of times I’ve seen it is Little Miss Sunshine. Something about that movie simply clicked with me :)

TexasDude's avatar

@muppetish, Little Miss Sunshine rocks.

mrentropy's avatar

And I’m watching Tremors again.
