R15 I can see a common denominator in 3 of those.

I think we should be asking ourselves WHY we've gone to the effort of seeing these singular movies ten times each.

Most movies become tiresome after two viewings so I suggest these particular movies fulfil some need within our psyche.

by Anonymousreply 6309/13/2020

Between my years as a teenager taping movies from TV broadcast - honing my Pause/Unpause skills - then years buying some on VHS and DVD and download - the list is far too long.

Why so many repeated viewings? When I was a teenager, that usually stemmed from a "discovery" and ensuing crush on a particular actor. Sometimes a reliable source of laughter or suspense or surprise, even though I knew what was coming. Sometimes a reminder of who I used to be. Sometimes a "tradition" I once enjoyed with loved ones who are now dead. Sometimes a relief that it's still not me in that situation. Usually it is a temporary escape into a world where people behave the way I'd want them to.

I love movies but the most I've ever watched any particular movie is five times. There are movies I've watched from beginning to end a couple times and then watched at least 10 times inn bits and pieces when they're on cable but I don't consider that "watching"...

If you're asking about movies that a person actually sits down and watches from beginning to end, I hope some of these posters misread your thread title and are just listing their favorite movies.

Murder by Death doesn't get nearly the amount of love that it deserves. It's one of the funniest and most entertaining films of all time. It's quite simply a perfect movie. And the performances are off the charts.

R149 Triumph of the Will is two hours long. There’s no way Trump is capable of watching more than five minutes of anything in one sitting unless Bannon and Miller made a special cut for him that says “Trump” every two minutes to keep his attention.

I should have added "And why" to the thread prompt. It's so intriguing seeing all the films people like to "live with."

I can tell you that I own The Odessa File because I'd love to have been living in Berlin in 1963. Seems like a youthful, dynamic time.

I love this movie, too. Russell Crowe looking hot and sexy. Gene Hackman was really good in his role as the de facto owner of the town. Then all the great character actors.

Underrated movie.

Clueless, All About Eve, The Women, His Girl Friday, Bringing Up Baby — In all these cases, just because the movies are easy and delightful to watch. They’re all so well done, and particularly the dialogue and delivery. They’ve all also got unique visual styles.

Elizabeth — Kind of the same as above. It’a not a comedy like the others are, obviously, but visually it’a a gorgeous movie, and watching powerful young Cate Blanchett grow from a delicate young beauty into a commanding force is mesmerizing to me.

The Talented Mr. Ripley — Commenting on this makes me realize how important visuals are to movies I rewatch because the aesthetic is a really big part of it—the era and the setting. The performances are really wonderful, all of them a little bit heightened and exaggerated but pulled back enough that they don’t feel cartoonish. Of course, it’s so gorgeous to look at: Matt, Goop and Cate look lovely in their 1950s-era costumes and Jude Law glows like he’s from Planet Adonis. More than anything, though, the story is just so different than what we get from Hollywood. It’s an out and out tragedy, and it’s unnerving because the air of the whole thing is menacing but also performed and filmed in a light that seems innocent and should not be. It’s just something unique among typical Hollywood dreck.

2001: A Space Odyssey, Eyes Wide Shut, The Shining — Kubrick is to movies what Tori Amos is to music for me. That’s the best way I can summarize the appeal of all these movies. With both Kubrick and Amos, I disliked their work very much when I first watched/heard it, finding its impenetrable, overly enigmatic, frustrating. But then you find that unlike anything else, the greater scrutiny and study you give it, the more you discover and whole worlds open up. I really do believe that each one of these movies dramatizes a simple and straightforward story that is really just a basic scaffolding onto which other stories are told symbolically. For me, 2001 is an existential philosophy movie and HAL hijacking the space ship has hardly anything to do with what the movie is about, even though it’s the primary plot and usually the plot described by people who don’t like the film. The Shining was the hardest for me to warm to but once I read some theories about the potential hidden meanings, the movie became a puzzle box with so many layers that has motivated me to rewatch many times. Eyes Wide Shut to me is the scariest movie ever made. I’ve discussed it here before and most people usually put down the film and say it’s terrible and unwatchable and then the discussions always get into Kidman’s personal life and cosmetic surgeries, so I won’t bother. :) The movie freaks me the fuck out, though.

I love "Meet Me In St. Louis" and have watched it every year during the holiday season for at least two decades. I think it is the greatest movie musical ever made.

That scene where Mrs. Smith sits down at the piano and starts to play "You and I", and then Alonzo joins in, and then the family slowly wanders in to listen still makes me cry.

Tommy. I saw it originally in the theater with quintaphonic sound. Not sure if it was the usual Ken Russell bombast,, Ann Margret, or Roger Daltrey shirtless, but it was awesome.

by Anonymousreply 170Last Friday at 4:00 AM

"Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" never gets tired. Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell were at the height of their powers and both deliver great performances. They are aided in that by one of the strongest supporting casts ever assembled. Each of those roles is perfectly cast.

R38 and r61 here,adding:

"A Hard Day's Night." Four times in a row in just one day in the theatre when the movie came out, never mind subsequent viewings!

"Macbeth" with Ian McKellin, as I once taught the play.

"The Sword of Gideon" with Steven Bauer, about Israeli revenge for the Munich Olympics massacre. Never gets old.

The best and most-watched movies for me have at least one perfect line of dialogue. In no particular order:

"Bet you're sorry you won!"

"He's remembered."

"Who's naive, Kay?"

"My team's on the floor."

"I didn't make him.....for YOU!"

"This is the business we've chosen."

I too think this is the very best scene in the film. There is so much going on, and it is so clever and real. It is the finale to Act I.

And Marian Gilbert's mom was a resident of Cabot Cove at the time of one of the many murders in town. I don't think Boothy ever showed up.
