Movies You Have Seen Over & Over ...

Tools    





Are there movies that you have seen countless times, ad infinitum, just because you liked them so much? (You can include older films you see on TV.)

YOJIMBO - Japanese classic about a cynical samurai, who manipulates a whole town into destruction. I have seen YOJIMBO perhaps 50 times. Kurosawa's finest.

SEVEN SAMURAI - around 50 times also. A long movie, 3 hours plus uncut, but I cry at the same places every time. (One of the moments that rung most true is when the poor villagers' supply of rice is vandalized and they desperately pick the stuff off the floor, grain by grain. In Indonesia (where I work sometimes), poverty-stricken people can actually be reduced to eating wood.)

POLTERGEIST - I don't know if I'm too lazy to change the channel but every time this movie comes on, I sit on the couch and watch. Same with THE EXORCIST. 40 times maybe. Ok, maybe I fall asleep sometimes.

MASK OF ZORRO - Banderas/Hopkins version. I just love this movie. The swordplay & horse stunts (particularly the opening action scene with Hopkins doing that thing with his whip), Catherine Zeta Jones' bosoms heaving like two glorious ... um, like the boat in THE PERFECT STORM. 30 times.

Other movies I have seen more than 20 times: SONG OF BERNADETTE (my mum raised me on this movie, so it's a bit of a guilty pleasure, SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, BEN HUR, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, THE OMEN, SPARTACUS, ALL ABOUT EVE

My all time record would probably be Aladdin, must be more than 100...followed closely by 101 Dalmatians, Beauty and the Beast, and Peter Pan (I was a huuge Disney fan as a kid )!!

As for real movies here are some:

-The Godfather (I've only seen the first part lots of times)
-Naked Gun 33 1/3
-Psycho


Can't remember any more right now, but there are probably heaps more I forgot...shows what sleep deprivation can do to you!

Aditya, can't help but notice that your over-and-over movie list reflects your top 10! I definitely like those movies, haven't seen all ov 'em 100's of times (I doubt I ever sat through Gone With The Wind...I'm usually gone with the first commercial break) !!



The Adventure Starts Here!
Here are mine (and I know I'm forgetting a bunch). Oh, I don't think these necessarily reflect my tastes, but maybe they say more about me than I'm willing to admit!

Naked Gun movies
Airplane! movies
Steel Magnolias
Punchline
Shawshank Redemption
Hunt for Red October
The Matrix
Princess Bride
Back to the Future movies
Star Wars movies
A League of Their Own
Field of Dreams
What About Bob?
Groundhog Day
Caddyshack
You've Got Mail!
Raising Arizona
Snake Eyes

I honestly don't know how Steel Magnolias or Punchline got in there, but I always sit through them when they come on.

Go figger.



The Adventure Starts Here!
OH, and almost any Hitchcock movie. And any Cary Grant movie (Bringing Up Baby, Arsenic and Old Lace, his Hitchcock movies...)...

Also, It's a Wonderful Life....

Geez, this could get tiresome. I'll stop now.



Pulp Fiction - easily seen it the most

Mallrats

Army of Darkness/ Evil Dead 2

Trainspotting

Lock, Stock

Pleasantville

Gimme Shelter
