Why would you eat steak more than once? You already know what it's going to taste like.

If I would list all movies I have watched more then 10 times, my internet supplier would cap the bandwidth before I written down half. wink.gif But I give it a try. There are of course some really good movies out there like The Godfather that is a bit to "heavy" for rewatching all the time, Or Pans Labyrinth that hasnt got my 10 viewings yet.


Robin Hood (Errol Flynn)
The Guns of Navarone
For a few dollars more
Where Eagles Dare
Jaws
The three musketeers
The four musketeers
Superman
Star wars Ep IV
Star Wars Ep V
Alien
Raiders of the lost ark
Ivanhoe
Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan
Star Wars Ep VI
The Terminator
Aliens
Top Gun
Predator
Robocop
The Abyss
The hunt for the Red October
Terminator 2
Crimson tide
The Rock
Star Trek: First contact
Gladiator
Fellowship of the ring (Theatrical cut)
Black Hawk Down
Batman begins

And then ad most Bond movies to the list

Woody Allen:
- What's Up, Tiger Lilly
- Every Thing You Always Wanted to Know About Sex * But Were Afraid to Ask
- Sleeper
The Thing from Another World
John Carpenter's The Thing
- (Slight nod to the latter but love them both)
Alien
Aliens
Blade Runner
North by Northwest
Forbidden Planet
The Maltese Falcon
The Big Sleep
Many Clint Eastwoods: from both the The Man with No Name series and the Dirty Harry series,
- The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and High Plains Drifter for certain, plus probably Hang 'Em High
- Dirty Harry and Magnum Force also for certain
- - Also The Eiger Sanction, Where Eagles Dare and The Outlaw Josey Wales

I'm sure there are more.

Side note: if you include TV series, I'll bet I've watched The Prisoner (original series, with Patrick McGoohan) at least 30 times. I've owned it in five different formats: 1/2" reel-to-reel videotape, U-Matic, multiple copies on VHS, DVD and now on BluRay (as you may guess by my avatar).

I've also watched many Marx Brothers and WC Fields movies numerous times - some definitely more than 10.

Be seeing you!

The only TV series that would be on the list for me are episodes from the original Twilight Zone. I still love that show.

Los Angeles Lakers - 16 NBA Championships!

Back in the mid 90's when me and my buds were killing our brain cells these were in heavy rotation. Get wacked, go party, come home & put on the DVD. I think back then we would have watched anything 10 times that wasn't on VHS.

Swingers
Austin Powers
Dawn of the Dead


The above post is 100% medically accurate


31 Days of Horror: 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008

I've definitely seen some Twilight Zone episodes more than ten times.

Ditto for Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I just can't get enough of those shows, and I even find myself watching many Comedy Central airings of the latter show's episodes despite the butchering of them.

The list I am making here is based on the fact that I actually have these movies on DVD/Blu-Ray, BUT I STILL stop and watch at least some of, if not all of these movies when they are being shown on TV. It makes no sense too me WHY I do this, but I do. Can watch them anytime on DVD/Blu-Ray, but still watch all or parts of when I see them on a TV/cable channel I have:

1. Caddyshack
2. National Lampoons Vaction/and Christmas Vacation
3. GoodFellas
4. Original Star Wars Movies, and Episode III
5. Animal House
6. The Great Escape
7. The Godfather parts I and II. Either the movies or the Godfather SAGA where it is put in chronological order, with the added scenes.
8. Raiders of the Lost Ark
9. Back to School
10. Casino
11. Almost ANY Bond film

I have no idea why I do it, but I do.

Many of the movies listed on this thread are very good, but Gigi? Give me a tiny little break! eek.gifrolleyes.gifsmile.gif

I would add to the lists Doctor Zhivago and The Accidental Tourist, but no film can be watched indefinitely without the viewer getting sick of it.


Hachi: A Dog's Tale was a great movie, but it was too emotional for me to ever want to watch again. The Killing Fields was a worthy flick, but I don't want to see that again either.

Yeh, there are a number of films I consider great, but just too heavy for regular watching, though I enjoy a good brutal cleaning of the emotional attic as much as anybody. Those are special occasion movies when I want to get into that wrist cutter mood.

I'm with you on The Accidental Tourist. But your list seems heavily tilted toward the downbeat and depressing side of life.

You should pop in the Blu-ray of Gigi sometime and enjoy a couple of hours of fresh, light, elegant, charming, smart, funny, wise, romantic, and beautifully scored mega-multi-Oscar, box-office blockbuster fare. biggrin.gif

I mean, they REALLY don't make 'em like that anymore.

"The Descendants" is definitely going to make it onto my highly watched list as well. Great flick, from the director of Sideways, and he again shows his ability to seamlessly integrate both light and heavy elements into a movie.

Leaving out Christmas movies and all the Disney and Pixar movies I watched multiple times when my daughter was growing up, the ones that come to mind are:

Night Moves (Penn)
Man on Fire (Scott)
Last of the Mohicans (Mann)

What other light hearted classics like Gigi would you suggest? My teen daughter prefers that type of style in movies, and I haven't watched too many of them (like Gigi) to recommend.
