Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Sat Nov 10, 2012, 11:51 AM

Share your 5 movies that you enjoy watching again. and again. and after some time, again.

Let's stretch it a bit to include multi-episode TV series, just to make it interesting.

Here are my five choices (at the moment!). I will mix the genres a bit....

Out of Africa
Talking Heads - Stop making Sense
Remains of the Day
Lost in Translation
The Singing Detective (with Michael Gambon)

(almost made the list - and may on some days - The Mighty Wind, The English Patient, The Last Waltz, Babel, The Hours, Baraka, Koyaanisqatsi, Six Feet Under)

Loved it! I have no idea how I had missed this one before. I'd heard of it of course but never actually knew what it was about or watched it until very recently.

I first saw it as a play in LA years and years ago, before the movie came out. None of us had ever heard of it before, but by the end of the second act we were all laughing so hard we were having trouble breathing.

Other than that I can't seem to come up with anymore great comodies except for the Monty Python films. Seems that most comodies are just too dopey for my taste to be worth watching more than once.

24. Don't know if the first two

would qualify as "movies", but whatever...

1. Woodstock
2. Led Zeppelin's 1973 concert at MSG in NYC.

Then there's...

3. Apollo 13
4. Jurassic Park (first movie)
5. Excalibur

I actually have about 15 or 20 movies I keep watching over and over again but these are the top ones.

213. Nancy Price wrote the novel the movie was based on

At the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, I was a history major and took a class called Historians and the Philosophy of History from her ex-husband.

He was not quite as bad as the guy in the movie, but he was close! LOL.

65. No Marx Brothers? or Charlot? or Woody?

And you call this a left-wing born-in-Kenya socialist site? Let not the Marxes go quietly down the dustbin of history!

So:

1. The Marx Brothers! Any of the 7 greats: Animal crackers... Coconuts... Horsefeathers... Monkey Business... Duck Soup... A Night at the Opera... A Day at the Races. Plus, for a 3-minute taste: Google-up "Lydia the tattooed Lady".

2. Charlie Chaplin, Modern Times. Arguably the best movie ever made. Plus, it's pro-Labor. And it's funny!!

3. Annie Hall... because it's on everyone's list.

4. Bananas... and/or Sleeper (they ard very similar... ).

Note: each of these are certified Democrats, or even worse. Harpo Marx worked for the FDR campaign. Charlie was blacklisted. Woody made a film tribute to blacklisted stars, "The Front", in which every actor (except Woody, who was too young) had been blacklisted in real life.

OK. One to go. So I'm indulging my sappy side...

5. Mary Poppins.

... which taught an entire generation to give to charity and to be suspicious of bankers.

67. Well,

I own certain Christmas movies that I watch every year, if I can, especially while wrapping presents.


Miracle on 34th Street (Natalie Wood version) Unfortunately, I have only the colorized version.

Christmas Carol (Alastair Sim version)

It's A Wonderful Life (surprised no one mentioned it)

Christmas Story

And a really, really esoteric one,

We're No Angels. (Humphrey Bogart, Peter Ustinov--who is also in Christmas Carol--and Aldo Ray) very sweet without being cloying.

My Halloween movie, since I don't like really scary films, is Love At First Bite, or Ed Wood, or Beetlejuice, or maybe Bram Stoker's Dracula.

For the rest of the year, I could list maybe 200, especially comedies. ( I don't like paying to be made sad.)

I am surprised that I did not see anything by Lucas or Speilberg mentioned.

I have to agree with Out of Africa as it is a fantastic movie.

Other American movies for me would be:

The Natural
The Unbearable Lightness of Being
Blade Runner
The original unedited and unchanged Star Wars triology

I love foreign films, so I have to include these:

Nuovo Cinema Paradiso
Babettes Gaestebud
Il Postino
Ran
Chariot's of Fire
Autumn Sonata

And one of my favorite genres is the Italian Giallos.

As far as TV series, I could watch Six Feet Under, Queer as Folk, Rome, and Deadwood repeatedly.

One of my favourites in the genre - leaning towards the noxiously-named "chick flick." Also on that list....Notting Hill. Dunno why; I just find it charming.

Miller's Crossing - FANTASTIC period piece, and I really like Gabriel B.

Fellini's Satyricon - a totally visceral experience.

Magic Christian - outrageous and hilarious.

And.....in the Believe It Or Not category...Silverado.

Dr. Strangelove.

Gotta have a Hitchcock, but which one? Okay, I'll go with:
Rear Window. Creativity is unbounded, plus you get to see Thelma Ritter chew the scenery.

Gotta have a sci-fi: tough choice here, but I have to give it to:
The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)

Something for the family: another easy choice.
To Kill a Mockingbird.

And comedy: my personal favorite.
My Man Godfrey (1936)

Others that I watch over and over.

Hopscotch (Matthau and Jackson!)
The Great Escape
Lord of the Rings
Stieg Larsson's Millenium Trilogy (in Swedish)
Fargo
The Haunting (1963)
Any other 1950's Hitchcock.
You Can't Take it with You

So many others. Those are the ones That come to mind.

Almost Famous: a great story and excellent acting - particularly by the luminously gorgeous Kate Hudson

Grosse Pointe Blanke: John Cusak and Dan Akroyd in a totally subversive black comedy

The Philadelphia Story: One of the Great American Films. Kate Hepburn, Cary Grant, and Henry Fonda - what's not to love?

M*A*S*H: Another of the Great American Films.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail: The touchstone of our generation

Henry V: Kenneth Branagh proves Shakespeare is still relevant and exciting

The Court Jester

The Outlaw Josie Wales and Unforgiven are two Eastwood movies that stand out, even if Clint has proven to be a jerk.

Fantasia would probably be on my list, as well.

Friends and I have watched Hedwig dozens of times, seriously.

The opening Origin of Love is worth it alone.

It's really a fantastic, soul-searching, gut-wrenching, hilarious, completely entertaining movie.

Glad I'm not the only one who loves it!

Also loved Alien and watched it many times as well.

254. Okay...Here it Goes:

MiniSeries:

"Winds of War/War nd Remembrance," The WHOLE SERIES based on Herman Wouk's Epic about WWII (hard to find) Incredible historical Footage of that time of WWII ...lead up and through. (Robert Mitchum and cast of thousands Germans, Russians, Nazi's and Jews.

"Dutchess of Duke Street" (It's long and we've almost worn through the VIDEO...it's available on Netflix...but, many don't like the soundtrack for the musical theme. Acting is superb..but you've got to like "older stuff and sentimentality along with grit...also Edwardian period)

"Lillie" (Lavish Period Piece about her hook up with Edward 8th)

"Pride and Prejudice" (all versions but BBC late 1970's is fave)
"Bleak House/Little Dorrit, David Copperfield" and other CURRENT Dickens Productions done by BBC in last 10 or so years.

"Inspector Poirot"....(All of it except the latest ones that seem cruel and lost the light touch of the earliest ones)

"Winged Migration" (for the Birds, Hopefulness and the Musical Score)

"Wild China" (for the visuals, birds, flora, fauna and just beauty..if it still exists there)
--------

"Out of Africa"(Robert Redford/ Meryll Streep

"Jeremiah Johnson" (Robert Redford and Native Americans, wonderful)

"Year of Living Dangerously" (Mel Gibson...and incredible given it was ahead of it's time)

"Big Lubowski" (well...it's just worth the watch)

"Trading Places"(wonderful about Wall Street)

"My House in Umbria" (Maggie Smith...incredible)

"What About Bob" (when we need a laugh about hipocracy & Media/Celebrity)

"Foul Play" (Goldie Hawn/Chevy Chase) (A huge Comedy Fave we watch over and over)

"Seems Like Old Times" (Goldie Hawn/Chevy Chase) A Hoot!

"Jumping Jack Flash" (Whoopie Goldberg/Spy Thriller) Can't tell you how many times we've watched this one!...too many)

"The Great Outdoors" (John Candi/Dan Akroyd... If you've ever been on vacation with family or friends...this is a movie you can appreciate for laughs..)

Ahhh...so many that we pull out and re-watch when the mood strikes us for something that refreshes us from whatever the latest trauma we are going through. Like old friends...to visit and feel good in their company.

I'd add: "Godfather I and II" that still resonates today...the James Bond Series, Bourne Series, "Harry Potter" and the "Star Treck" Movies. (We still pull those ones out and revisit because they seem relevant for something... or are just fun)


I've edited so many times ...but, many of the movies other DU'ers have posted are also ones we watch and would put on our list. I was just giving the ones we personally tend to watch over and over through the years that are a little different from what others picked.

270. Slumdog Millionaire...

Cute idea, NRaleighLiberal.

I just hope this doesn't mean we have to stop celebrating (see video below my choices):

Slumdog Millionaire
The Last of the Mohicans
Gladiator
Anything with Fred Astaire
Anything with Audrey Hepburn
Anything with Keira Knightley
Anything with Penelope Cruz

271. My 5 selections......

1) the good, the bad and the ugly......sorry folks, Eastwood or not, it's still one of my favorites and the best of the trilogy...

2) Murphy's war.....if you haven't seen this Peter O'Toole gem, do yourself a favor...deals with the only survivor of a cargo ship torpedoed by a u-boat in the last days of WW2, and his grim determination to exact revenge when the chance presents itself...

3) goodfellas.....i never get tired of this movie...definatly one of the best mob movies ever made...

4) full metal jacket.....the first hour is unforgettable, the second half a gritty testimony....there is a line for every type of situation in this movie....

5)The lord of the rings....(the entire trilogy)....i can only hope "the hobbit" is as good as these were....

mentionable....the stand, casino, avatar, a bridge to far, bridge over the river kwai, band of brothers/pacific, a nightmare on elm street(original),
