Tue Aug 8, 2017, 12:25 AM

Name a movie you've watched over five times that you're still entertained by

For me:

The Day of the Jackal
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
Kind Hearts & Coronets
My Man Godfrey
Star Wars


There are at least two dozen others. Those are the first five that came to me.

Almost any Kubrick, except Eyes Wide Shut. (I don't do Tom Cruise for any reason.) especially Dr. Strangelove.

And in that vein... also

167. It is unique. Walter Matthau and Glenda Jackson.

They create utter magic together. Well, it is not their only outing together. But Hopscotch is special. They are totally unbuttoned. And Ned Beatty is priceless as CIA boss Myerson. I like Sam Waterston in everything he does. Don't forget Herbert Lom as KGB operative Yazkoff. It is a near flawless ensemble cast (including two of Matthau's kids).

A film that is an utter joy to watch.

It is available from the Criterion Collection, no less.

My best to you.

Also "Shooter" and "Avatar"

Fast becoming my favorite, though, is "Luftslottet som Sprängdes." It translates out to "The Castle In The Air That Got Blown Up." It was later redone with an English-speaking cast, including Daniel Craig, as "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo," but the Swedish original is a thousand times better, a really haunting film.

I've seen Nadine multiple times because every time we visit my mother, she wants to watch it. She doesn't hear anymore, but she used to watch it w my dad. So, it brings back good memories for her, and she doesn't have to worry about hearing, since she knows the lines. My SO always pulls it out for us to watch. We can't talk politics, so we never turn the TV on. We just watch old movies, and my mother has cabinets full of some of the best.

80. Where Eagles Dare

...I mean, it's a silly film. Richard Burton would have been arrested on the spot in the Germany of 1944 just for his hair style alone. It has enough blood shed to satisfy a whole phalanx of vampires for a year. Some of the "Germans" blown to hell are obvious dummies. It's a good half-hour too long. But I never get tired of watching it.

Burton and Clint Eastwood(!) together, LOL! Eastwood was mostly in his "spaghetti western" period at the time.

The fight on the cable car ...!

Alastair Maclean, who wrote the novel on which the film is based, wrote the screenplay for his close friend, Richard Burton. Fittingly, their graves are not far from one another in the shady old cemetery in Celigny, Switzerland. See http://www.dicconbewes.com/2010/09/15/dead-famous-in-switzerland/

The list seems short of Cohen brothers films, which are, if not universally brilliant, some of the most consistently odd-ball, wonderfully comic pieces, all different, of the past half century.

Miller's Crossing was mentioned, but not O Brother, Where Art Thou, Raising Arizona, or Fargo. Of course I might have missed them.

This is the one that I meant: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charade_(1963_film) This version has been referred to as "the best Hitchcock movie that Hitchcock never made."

I also love Mancini's musical score.

And yes, as several here have mentioned, I also like "Midnight in Paris." I love just about any movie set in Paris. But some are certainly more watchable several times than others are.

Many I could have mentioned but most already on the list here but Sideways isn't. Just makes me feel good plus another of Payne's wonderful work. Two flawed humans who probably shouldn't be friends due to their moral compasses but nonetheless are, for better or worse. Plus you learn about wine and us average guys get an idea of what it would be like to be with Virginia Madsen.

249. Was "Apocalypto" not frickin' amazing?! Gotta give it to Mel: he knows how to do "gruesome"!

 

Even so, he went easy---the Aztecs had victims lined up for MILES, waiting to get their hearts ripped out.

267. Yes! Only a loon like Mel does excess so artfully!

Funny, "Apocalypto" has, at its center, the classic crime-pursuit-retribution structure of numerous vintage westerns and folktales. It even has dramatic cross-cutting to trouble back at the homestead, away from the main action (wife & kid in the filling well).

The marketplace scenes are fantastic, guys just covered in lime barfing their lungs out, dwarf thieves, sewage problems, the decadent fat-cats and priest (I get the idea from a quick nod between the chief & priest that they are aware that the eclipse will happen, and have staged their sacrifices for maximum effect).

Damn, now I want to see it again (for the nth time)! Popping in the blu-ray when I get home!

261. Too Many To Name

It has to be in the hundreds. I'm that type. I watch lots of movies, many mentioned above, that i watch every time i notice it. Don't even have to watch the whole thing.

It definitely includes ALL the Star Trek movies, although i don't think i could watch the first one any longer.

Someone above mentioned Groundhog Day and that one i can watch over and over and over, which as that poster mentioned, seems appropriate.

Someone else mentioned Silver Linings Playbook, but now we tend to wait (or fast forward) to everything after the scene at the diner and outside the theater. From that point on, i can watch that movie every month.
