I don't often watch movies twice. If I do, it's because it's got one of the following qualities:
- is an exceptional film
- speaks to me on some personal level
- is a musical (it's a feel-good thing)
- stars Brad Pitt
Not a complicated matter. Here are 13 movies I've watched multiple times.
- The Red Violin - the story is wonderful and the music is brilliant. Joshua Bell does the music and he will blow you away.
- Legends of the Fall - one word: Tristan *sigh*
- Moulin Rouge - the colors, the music, the tragic love story!
- Chicago - the music, the dancing, and all that jazz...
- Citizen Kane - This movie was released in 1941 and can still hold it's own. The story telling and filming was fabulous. If you haven't seen it yet, please, do yourself a favor.
- Rocky Horror Picture Show - I probably saw this one about 30 times in my youth. Don't scoff! In what other movie can you throw toast and dance in the aisles?
- Something About Mary - something about it just cracked me up,... about 3 times.
- Gone With the Wind - I actually have seen many of the old classics many times, but this is one of my faves. And Bette Davis in Now, Voyageur.
- The Wizard of Oz - reminds me of my childhood. My mother would let me and my big sis eat our dinner in the living room on t.v. trays when it came on every year at Easter time
- Fight Club - that ending!! I started from the beginning as soon as it ended, just to see all the hidden images and clues. Hmmm... and wasn't Brad in this one? ;)
- Phantom of the Opera - Gerard Butler + tragic love story + great music = perfection
- The Bourne Identity - I was a HUGE Ludlum fan and was delighted that they made this movie ROCK, despite the fact that it strayed so far from the book. I never saw Matt as an 'action hero' until this, and he was the perfect combo of intense, tough and troubled.
- Casino Royale - Daniel Craig's 007 was worth seeing a second time. Maybe even a third.
There are many more, but this is a pretty fair representation.
