Thread: Which movie do you never get bored of watching?

  1. #1

    Which movie do you never get bored of watching?

    Which movie makes you freeze like a deer in headlights, that it's hard to change the channel when it's on? A movie that you can watch over & over again without getting sick of it.

    I have a bad habit of flipping the channels before I go to bed and no matter how tired I am, if The Godfather is on (1 or 2) it just sucks me in and I end up being a zombie the next morning, and lately it seems like it's been on a couple of days a week on various channels.

    I am not one to watch the same movie over and over again. Once in theater and then once every 4 or 5 five years if I really like it, like the first Star Wars trilogy or Back to the Future is more than enough for me. And even with those, after 4 or 5 times in all those years, I get bored.

    But I saw Marvel's The Avengers 4 times since it came out and I will certainly watch it a lot more int he years to come. So far, it's the movie I watched the most in the less time. But Guardians of the Galaxy is probably going to beat that. I already saw it twice in 2 weeks in the theaters and the only reason I didn't see it more than that is the lack of time, or I would have. When it gets on demand (next week I think), I'll watch it again a few times I'm sure.

    I have been a comic book reader for as long as I remember but even then, those are the first super-hero movies to make me want to watch them that much. They are far from perfect but I don't know why. Guess I am a sucker for super-hero teams and comedy mixed in.

    Have to agree about the godfather...I always get sucked in. I'm also a Schwarzenegger fan so all the Terminator movies suck me in...Ive seen each of them at least a dozen times. They are my go to movies when there's nothing on and I want to relax and not think too much.

    Okay, maybe it takes a real man to confess, but only two:

    How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days - Freakin Ouch!

    The Devil Wears Prada - You don't know how painful this one is to admit I watch such silly puffery. Excuse me now...I have to walk through the Bronx sewer to feel cleaner. Wait, I'll just watch the Dirty Dozen for the 1000th time.

    But I'm Honor Bound to commit Hara Kiri if I ever feel any molecule of liking for When Harry Met Sally or The English Patient.

    I feel so dirty,
