Movies you can see 100s of times

Recommended Posts

What are some movies that you think you would never get tired of?

I would say:

Airplane! I've seen it so many times, and it cracks me up every time

any of the movies from the Naked Gun series

Dumb and Dumber

Francois Truffaut's The 400 Blows is one of the films I have viewed more times than I can recall followed closely by Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver. There was a time when I would watch Malizia, Breaker Morant, and Clerks almost every weekend, but the top two films are the aforementioned :beatnik:

That film (400 blows) is a classic, specially among French. I´ve seen it last time a week ago, in a dvd at my family´s home.

I love "Out of Africa"... yes, I´m a woman! :angel: but there is no film I could see hundred of times... maybe "Let it be" or "Gimme Shelter"... my folks would kill me, everybody´s in the movie scene in my family!!!

OMG! It was such an awesome movie! I was so scared of the wolf, everytime you saw its glowing eyes on screen I'd scream! And when Artax sinks into the quicksand....apparently the reason why when the movie starts he's a grey horse, and then about halfway he's suddenly white, was because the grey horse really sank and died when they were filming :(

That's so cool that you saw the filmset AND you got to sit on Falkor! I'm going to have to find a copy of that on DVD over here - I haven't watched it in years :(

i don't think that's true about the horse sinking and dying... they used loads of horses to play artax but they had to stop using one because it trampled noah hathaway who played artreyu!! maybe that was the grey one...?

great site sue, that'll keep me entertained for hours! incidentally have you noticed in the scene with gina and corey at the cafe ('not like me the turboslut, is that what you mean?') how the red bra keeps disappearing and reappearing from the table between them!

"Interview with a vampire" Just freakin love that movie. Tom cruise should have played Lestat again in "Queen of the damned" Stuart couldn't replace tha tom. :: aah tom should always look like lestat (ok, maybe dangerous because I would probably jump on him and euhm...ya know the rest) he...he...he must see it again. Oh oh forgot a movie :o "Babe"... I'm an animal lover and that movie is so cuuuute, I want babe :puppyeyes:

I have seen the Blues Brothers over well in excess of 200 times. I know the dialogue front to back. The best movie I have ever seen and I wouldn't be around if it weren't for Belushi and Ackroyd's Jake and Elwood.

Oh yes! Groundhog day! :thumbsup: I've always thought that might be a fun thing to happen - you could do so many things you never have before and get a second chance the next day!

I'll have to introduce you to my husband! He's seen that film over 100 times! I like it too, but not to that extent. :)

One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest was my favourite for years. I've never seen a more talented cast in my life - Danny de Vito was incredible!

But since I'm becoming nostalgic (getting old, I guess) I have been buying DVDs of my childhood favourites, and I just got to say what great movies they were!

My favourites are all films starring Hayley Mills, especially Tiger Bay.

...and I wouldn't be a gal if I didn't love those "Sissy" movies of the 60's, starring teenage Romy Schneider as Empress Elizabeth "Sissy" of Austria.

I almost forgot Monty Python's "Life of Brian" (any MP movie for that matter). That movie is still a riot!
