|I was watching Predator on AMC for what seems like the hundredth time. It's one of those movies I never get sick off. What are some of your favorite movies that you can watch over and over?|
|Posted by: Shimmer Dec 8 2010, 12:20 PM|
I was thinking of making a list actually, then when I'm feeling down I can just chose something from the list to put on and theoretically it should cheer me up.
Off the top of my head:
Monty Python & The Holy Grail
From Dusk to Dawn
Conan the barbarian

| I'm a big movie fan in general. And it's true: The movies that you truly love you can watch them over and over again. Maybe not every day, but once in a while. You might have experienvced this too: you own your favorite films on DVD or BluRay or got an old VHS tape in your collection, but when they are shown on TV you just get hooked again and cannot stop watching them till the end. And everybody loves Predator.
Here are some of my all-time favorites:
- 2001: A Space Odyssey
- The Empire strikes back
- Evil Dead I & II
- The Blair Witch Project
- Dark Star
- Heavy Metal
- the first X-Men movie
- The Experiment (the German original)
- the whole Friday the 13th franchise
- the Saw franchise
- the Chucky movies (except the last one)
- Godzilla flicks
Oh, I need to add a Chucky thread to the male redhead section, because that killer doll is so freaking awesome!

ARG! Where's my brain.

Field of Dreams (1989)
The princess Bride (1987)

I didn't include any foreign language movies, not because I don't like them, more because I can't watch subtitles for more than an hour or so without getting eye ache.
If it weren't for the sore eyes thing I'd also include
and a bunch more
|Posted by: Red Gold Dec 13 2010, 11:07 AM|
Nice. Two of my Japanese favorites, too.
|Posted by: king chaos Dec 13 2010, 11:56 AM|
Good point, same here
So in that vein I'll add:
Brotherhood of the Wolf (2001)
I saw the original in subtitle form in the theater and lost a good bit of the content because it was rather quick and hard to read.
The dubbed version is not done very well (I t came across rather corny and poorly voice acted), but it helped me pickup a lot that I missed.
|Posted by: Phette Dec 14 2010, 11:42 PM|
I absolutely love that movie! Come to Texas, King! Everything is bigger in Texas, even our subtitles, lol

|Even though Fight Club is a little bit violent and boyish. I still like it. I like Marla. I like the two boys in it. I did not really get what was happening in the end. Does anyone else who watched that think it was rushed through and not explained very well? I got it out from the video store and watched it a couple of times in slow motion with subtitles. It made no more sense.|

I’m not sure exactly which part you’re talking about but I assume it’s the relationship between the two lead characters.
Well for those that haven’t seen it:
They are BOTH Tyler Durden.
The main character played by Edward Norton who is also the “narrator” through the movie was insane and had split personality disorder. All throughout the movie no one refers to him by any name until “Marla Singer” calls Edward Norton “Tyler Durden.”
The whole movie when Edward Norton and Brad Pitt are interacting, the “Narrator” was talking to a man that was just in his head and didn’t really exist.

Just saying... You can ignore this post if you want to.

| Vision Quest. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0090270/
It also had a really good soundtrack.
|Posted by: deviant May 1 2017, 07:46 AM|
|Vision Quest has always been one of my favorite Matthew Modine movies. But I'll tell ya, it was always Linda Fiorentino that made me watch it every time it aired on TV.|

Yep she was mesmerizing. That movie had a really good cast overall.

|I'm a big horror movie fan, so I guess one of my favorite movies that I can watch over and over again would be Rob Zombie's remake of Halloween and Halloween 2. I love how he got Danielle Harris (Played Michael Myers Niece Jamie) to come back and star in his remake.|
|Posted by: deviant May 3 2017, 05:20 PM|
| Oh, and how could I forget Rob Zombie"s "The Devil's Rejects". I can always watch that one over and over. Here's one of my favorite scenes
" Tuti f**k*n Frutti"!
|Posted by: deviant May 4 2017, 06:37 AM|
| I can also always watch all of the "Back to the Future" movies over and over again... "Great Scott"! Which brings me to this announcement. Its official, " Back to the Future 4" due to be released in 2018!
|Posted by: Ginger_Lover May 9 2017, 11:19 AM|
| Any time that I'm channel surfing, if i come across "Caddyshack", "the Fugitive" or "Men in Black", I've gotta watch it.
|Posted by: Shimmer Jul 3 2017, 03:41 PM|
I applaud your thread necromancy.
Since this post started I've got big into Deadpool and Guardians of the Galaxy, have watched both a crapload of times.
