Do you have a movie you've seen a zillion times, but when you
surf by it with the remote, you always end up watching it til the end?

Fried Green Tomatoes
The Shawshank Redemption
The Princess Bride

& worst of all..........

The Poseidon Adventure. :clap: but only til Shirley Winters kicks it. She's the best & it's nowhere as fun without her.

For me it's always 'The King and I' starring Yul Brynner.  I'm also a sucker for 'Anna and the King' starring Jodie Foster. 

I love the musicals, so if there's an opportunity to 'Wash that man right outta my hair' (South Pacific), or catch up with the beautiful Audrey Hepburn in 'My Fair Lady', I'll be there!

A more recent film I think I'll watch again and again, will be 'Ray' starring Jamie Foxx ... I was given it on DVD as a present last week after loving it at the cinema.

Oh yes, i'm a sucker for watching some movies over and over again.

Highlander - the first one, the rest are rubbish GOLLYGOSH Christophe Lambert was soooooooo scrumptious in his kilt - favourite line "Forgive me father, i am a worm"
From Dusk til Dawn - yeah well we all know why i love this - GEORGE CLOONEY! Favourite line by Juliet Lewis "creepy guy"
The Goonies - this is a family favourite - how many films have 'One Eyed Willy' said over and over again? ha ha
A Christmas Story - yep, i know we all love this movie here at TT - favourite line is "Take your eye out" and i have always wanted a light up leg lamp ever since!
The Burbs - Tom Hanks is sooooo young in this - i love Corey Feldman. Whatever happened to him?
Lost Boys - [INVALID] young vampires and a great soundtrack too. I found this movie really scary way back then.

All the 80's fantasy movies.......Labyrinth,Never Ending Story,The Dark Crystal etc

I gotta go..............supposed to be working but may just pop a crackly old video in the machine instead.

                "Witness' staring  Harrison Ford

                 Fried Green Tomoatoes

                 The Green Mile


                 The Colour Purple

     I could watch any of them again and again!  I made my son-in-law promise that the mouse lived, before I could watch The Green Mile LOL!

I'm sure that's the popular opinion -- the BRAD thing, I mean -- but actually, I'm much more a Morgan Freeman type, myself.  bear_wub    Does that man have a voice, and a presence, and a gentility and a grace and a warm kindness about him... or what???  He contributes soundly to my fascination with Bruce Almighty and The Shawshank Redemption as well.  For that matter, I should have added DRIVING MISS DAISY and KISS THE GIRLS.

Back to SEVEN, though... isn't Kevin Spacey just astounding as just about the creepiest, most soul-less, psychopath to ever walk the earth??? <shudder>

Kevin Spacey definitely plays the psychopath extremely well - very, very creepy.  Every time I watch it I hope there will be something else in the box at the end!! 

Yes Morgan Freeman is fabulous, everything he does is superb - Kiss the Girls is a great film. 

That reminds me, one more for my list.  Man on Fire, Dakota Fanning is outstanding, incredible for such a little one and Denzel Washington well ......... he's just fab.
