Movies you never tire of

Recommended Posts

Ok, I just bought a new TV with an integral DVD player and I am excited. It is a huge 13" screen and I have placed next to my painting table. I am hoping it will have two effects, first make me want to paint and allow me to watch movies my wife is sick of :)

 

I love watching certain movies over and over, except I cannot sit and watch them without doing something else cause I get bored. My wife never wants to hear the names of the movies again, let alone watch them. I think this all started when I was in HS and would watch the cartoon of the Hobbit and LoTR while I painted. Now I will again get to watch old favorites and paint. I am a happy man.

 

What are some movies you never tire of?

My movie in question would be Hatari with John Wayne. In fact I have almost memorized all the lines in the movie. Drives the missus plain nuts. "Pokects you pick me a big one and I will make you eat it" "Yes Bwana"

Almost all of the above along with:

 

Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Die Hard, Die Hard With a Vengence, The Last Boy Scout, Big Trouble in Little China, Clerks and Tombstone amongst MANY MANY others. Matter of fact, here's my collection if anyone is interested. Some of the ones I listed I only have on vidoe, so they're not on the list.

I have to jump on board with many of the above-mentioned. I'm a huge sci-fi/fantasy geek, I watched the Academy Awards this year and cheered like it was the Superbowl when RotK pulled down Best Picture and PJ reeled in Best Director. However, I have to add Dances With Wolves to the list. I love that movie. Always have.

Geez, I'm setting myself up here, but I can sit and watch Field of Dreams all day long.

 

Ha ha! C'mon, I'm making this waaay too easy for all of you. Leave it alone.

 

It's not a Kevin Costner fixation, it's more about the 'journey to find yourself' movies. You know they get you right there, don't they?
