I think my movies choices swing from the pretty good to the horrendous and ridiculous, but I love 'em!
Definitely seen 50+ times-
Outlaw Josey Wales
Cool Hand Luke
and probably Shawshank because I believe it is now a federal law that Shawshank must be on at least one channel at any given time.
I have the same experience with Shawshank Redemption. I don’t own it, never saw it in the theatre, but every time I run across it while channel surfing, I stop and watch it the rest of the way through. I think I have only seen the actual beginning once, but from the time he arrives in prison on, I have probably seen it almost 40 times.
OTOH, I don’t think I have seen Groundhog Day more than once or twice on TV, but I have seen it quite often since it is one of the few movies that I bought both the VHS tape and the DVD.
I’m not one to re-watch movies ad nauseum (I also don’t re-read books very often) but the one I’ve watched the most times has to be Beauty and the Beast. I remember begging for it for Christmas when I was 8, I got it and watched it at least once a day until we got back in school. And I’ve definitely watched it at least a few times since then. Actually, I wish I still had it, I’d like to watch it again.
Just saw Chasing Amy yesterday (couldn’t sleep, which is unusual fro me), and caught Jay and Silent Bob on a plane (Virgin - they treat passenger like grown-ups). Found the central premise of CA (lesbo turns straight for Ben Cornflake) rather unlikely, but roared with laughter at the “Louis Farrakhan” scene, and just before that the “tracer” scene. Excellent writing by Kev.
So is Mallrats up there? (I’m going to hire Clerks - I thought I had this time, but it was some cartoon version.) And what about Dogma?
Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein (thanks, Cal --you always manage to jog my memory) Animal House
Laurel & Hardy’s March of the Wooden Soldiers --“Big bait catches big rat!”
And, Cal , remember “Million Dollar Movie” on channel 9 and how they used to show the same movie every night for a week? There are three I watched every night: **The Giant Behemoth, Not of this Earth ** and the Francis Lederer Dracula film where he played “Cousin Belac”–Return of Dracula ?
The Maltese Falcon
Blade(because my kids watched it, but it was well done)
A Muppet Family Christmas(because it’s cool, and my son was young at that time, yeah, it was my son, no–really…)
