Movies you never tire of watching
« 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.

Weird.

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.

I have one of those DVD collections that is full of movies that I have either watched once or watch all the time.

Movies that I can watch nonstop...
  - High Fidelity (love Nick Hornby)
  - About a Boy (again with Nick Hornby and Hugh Grant plays William perfectly)
  - Chasing Amy (Jason Lee plays a great best friend)
  - Mallrats (too many one-liners to mention)
  - That Thing You Do (I have no defense...it's cheese but I love it)
  - Stargate (Ok, I'm a geek)
