Due to a minor miscalculation, tomorrow will be the skipped posting day, not today. Our trip is not today and tomorrow, but tomorrow and Monday. Monday might be missed as well, depending on our return time. That said, here are my thoughts on movies I watch repeatedly without tiring.
I could re-watch any of the Star Wars movies over and over and never tire of them.
I mean, obviously. Check out my avi.
Very few new movies strike me that way. Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is one that I can re-watch, not because I love it or think it's a great film, but because I know it, love the book it's based on, and can leave it on in the background while I do other things. But for the most part, if I watch a movie repeatedly, it's an old classic.
Older than Star Wars. Well, except The Princess Bride. I don't know when that came out, but I'm sure it was more recent than 1977. I can quote that one top to bottom.
I've seen Bridge on the River Kwai enough times I can almost recite it. Same with Doctor Zhivago (both directed by David Lean, incidentally). Breakfast at Tiffany's and Casablanca are two more movies I know extremely well.
Of newer movies? Red. The A-Team. Those we have for "everyday". They're at least since the turn of the century, right?
I guess this was kind of a blah writing prompt for me. I can give you a list as long as my arm of movies I watch over and over without getting tired of them, because when I like a movie, that's what I do! Why not go with a sure thing instead of try to watch some new thing that's horrible? Do you agree?
