Title: Movies you never tire of watching
Post by: clemsonfan on May 21, 2004, 08:23:51 AM
I saw an interview with Matthew Broderick the other day and it reminded me that I can watch Ferris Beuller (sp?) over and over again and still laugh like it was the first time I was watching it.

Other movies I love to watch over and over again are Pulp Fiction, Office Space, Sound of Music, and Grease.

Mmm...Jason Lee (http://lyst.org/Crap/banana_hitit.gif)

(as long as he doesn't try to convert me to Scientology)

Jason Lee is a Scientologist?

Yeah, there was an article (can't remember the magazine...think it was Maxim or Blender) on him when Vanilla Sky came out noting that he's in the cult along with Tom Cruise.

Movies that, no matter what I'm doing, if I stumble across them while channel surfing, I'll watch until the end.

The Godfather
Hooisers
Patton
All the President's Men
and the newest addition to the list - Office Space

There are others, but those are the big five, without question, I will watch under any circumstances.

Josie and the Pussycats, Overboard, Point Break, Beautiful Girls, Die Hard.

Most of these are guilty pleasures, but I just can't avert my eyes if they come on for some reason. Weird thing is, with Die Hard and Point Break, I've never once seen either of them from beginning to end. I've probably seen both a good 15 or so times, but still have no idea what happens in the first 10 to 15 minutes of each.

Point Break


I must have seen Point Break close to 50 times. It became a joke between my buddies and I our freshman year of college.

Funny thing was...it was on last weekend on FX, and yeah, I didn't change the channel. Can't say I really watched it either, though. It was just on in the background.

I AM AN EFF-BEE-EYE AGENT!!!

Oh yeah, in the first fifteen minutes of Point Break, John C. McGinley appears on screen and basically practices for the role that makes him famous, Dr. Perry Cox on "Scrubs."

Almost any Kubrick film.  2001, Clockwork Orange, Full Metal Jacket... ok, maybe not Eyes Wide Shut.

Ghost World, Fight Club, just about any Monty Python movie.

I'm sure there are more.

*after lots of thought*
If I had The 'Burbs, I could probably watch that a lot.

When we were little, my sister and I used to watch [imdb]Clue[/imdb] every day for like 3 months, then switch to   [imdb]Mr. Boogedy[/imdb] (a disney TV movie from the 80s) for 3 months, then back to Clue.

I can never tire of Saving Private Ryan or Band of Brothers.  Probably because of my obsession with WWII and the war in Europe.  Schindler's List, too.

Debbie Does Dallas,
Deep Throat,
Shaving Ryan's Priv.... uh... oh

Lessee...

Shawshank Redemption
Ground Hog Day
Office Space
Nothing to Lose (if you haven't seen it because it looked like shit in the previews... watch... love... repeat.  There's one line in it that J and I giggle about all the time)

There must be at least a dozen others, but everytime I try to list something, I forget most of the list.

I find it funny that people list Kubrick... I've never seen a Kubrick film yet that I'd watch again with a gun to my head.  Especially not Clockwork Orange.  Weird ass movie.

Adding more to my list as I remember or see others post them.

Post by: kcneon on May 21, 2004, 02:57:13 PM
multiple listings of 'Tremors'--huh?   :wink:

Aside from the good old 80s movies I grew up with (and most have been mentioned already), I love action movies:  The Die Hard series, Goldeneye, a lot of Wesley Snipes movies, Desperado.

And every bloody time FOTR is on I get sucked in (well, truth be told if I get in on the very beginning I usually time it to turn back when the council scene starts--that's really pathetic, isn't it?)

Here's some more:
Better off Dead
Phantom of the Paradise
Rock 'n' Roll High School
Pee Wee's Big Adventure
Drowning Mona

Juliana, unfortunately, I don't have it on DVD.  Even though I would love to.  I'll check around and see if it's available.

Title: Movies you never tire of watching
Post by: Dan on May 22, 2004, 07:49:11 PM
Most of those are great choices.  One that I haven't seen listed, which I always get sucked into, is

The Fifth Element

I think it's b/c of all the cool colors...and cool Milla Jovovich (sp?).  She's so hot in that movie...
Title: Movies you never tire of watching
Post by: Jonathan on May 22, 2004, 08:13:09 PM
My roommate's always watching that movie, but, strangely enough, I've never actually sat down and watched it.

Kubrick was a genius, in my opinion. Clockwork Orange is one of the only films I've seen that is better than the book. Add to that "Catch 22" - Really interesting film, frustrating and difficult book.

Another one I can watch over and over - "Carry on up the Khyber". And of course "Quadrophenia". That film is the puppies plums.

OK, so I was looking at upcoming DVD releases, and I looked at August 3 because it's the day after my birthday, to see if maybe there were some interesting DVDs I could get as a late birthday present.

Because August 3 is quite a ways off, there weren't many listed, but one of the three they did have listed as being released that day was Darby O'Gill and the Little People.

If this thread hadn't risen to the top this afternoon, and I hadn't looked at it again, I never would have made the connection.

Spanx. I caught scent of green papaya on bravo one day a while back, then made Steve watch it with me one night before the wedding. I'm a sucker for the love conquers all stories.

"True Romance" was on the other night and I made my wife watch it until Christopher Walken blows Dennis Hopper's head off.  I love the story Dennis tells Walken about the origin of the Sicilians...one of my all time favorite movie moments.  I finally succumbed to my wife's harranguing about how many times I've watched that movie and let her change the channel.  I never get tired of watching it.

i read a little about the remake concerning the implications of a hillary-esque character and how they were trying to take some of that out. strange. but that aside, i don't think i'll bother. i don't think it can be improved upon enough to warrent a remake. besides,i've seen it so many times, i would have a hard time shaking Sinatra,Landsbury,et al  from my mind in those roles.

Last night, I was about to watch A&E's Biography tribute to Marlon Brando when I noticed that Turner Classic Movies was showing To Kill a Mockingbird at the same time. I debated for about 10 seconds and flipped over. That movie still makes me cry. Love Gregory Peck's performance as well as Robert Duvall's movie debut.

After the film, they threw out some trivia...like the character Dill was based on Harper Lee's friend Truman Capote. I always thought that kid was kinda odd. Learn something new everyday.
