Most Re-Watchable Film?


#1

What film(s) do you find yourself watching over and over again? They don’t have to be your favourite films, just the ones you can’t get enough of. I mean your favourite, bestest, most wonderfulistic film might be Pulp Fiction, but it won’t necessarily mean that you want to watch it every day!!



For me it has to be Kill Bill and The Big Lebowski. No matter how many times I watch them, they never get borring, in fact they get better after every viewing. I’ve seen these two films more times than any other films. They aren’t my favourite films though, they just have a lot of re-viewing value. I think it takes someone (or some people) to have a lot of talent to be able to produce something that you can’t seem to get enough of.

I have that on DVD. Weird Al rocks. Conan the Librarian.

Pretty much anything by Tarantino or the Coen Brothers is unbelievably rewatchable, same as John Woo’s films and Rodriguez usually does a good job of making a rewatchable film. Trainspotting too.



The great scenes are the ones that stay exciting. When a film is totally filled with these great scenes that stay exciting, then it is rewatchable.



Usually cult films. Because they become cults after people watch them over and over again.

Pulp Fiction can be re-watched like after a year. I can’t go through Jules’ dialogue with Pumpkin, it’s not like he made the speech of the year, it’s just BORING. Seriously, it was great the first time, the second time, but now it’s boring. The other stuff remains, you can always see someting new. Maybe.


#17

Any film with a deeper meaning loses its rewatchability just because, how often are you going to be moved or have your thoughts provoked by the same thing? But I’ve still watched Pulp Fiction like a billion times, and I don’t get bored with it. Also Boondock Saints, that used to be me & my friends’s Rocky Horror Picture Show. Every Saturday at my house around 1 or 2 AM my senior year, you’d hear at least 4 or 5 people yelling “why don’t you make like a tree and get the fuck out of here!”


#18

Most all good films are re-watchable but the better the film the less I watch it… so it doesn’t get old, like anything good, unless you don’t get something in the film, or you don’t openly worship, love the film there’s no point in watching it over and over ect what kind of a brain-dead retard does that? :stuck_out_tongue:



Action packed films tend to be the most watchable because there not involving

Goddamn i love Boondock Saints!!! fucking great film! And that is exactly right abotu films with deeper meanings losing their rewatchability. It is like that quote that Oliver Stone said about QT, when he said that he makes films and Quentin makes movies. Yeah but Quentin’s films are so much more rewatchable than Stone’s (even though i love Stone).

wtf! there is fucking nothing wrong with watching a film over and over again and practically worshipping it. What do you mean, what braindead retard does that?? people need hobbies and pastimes and icons and heroes. Mine are Tarantino and films (as well as all the great directors out there who make these great films). I watch great films over and over again. I love watching a great film again!!!



and why would you pay out people who watch films over and over again when this thread is dedicated to just that.

Paying out? Thats not my point at all I ment Meant if your open about being really obsessed about a film or films then that’s cool, its when people see films that there not, that it becomes something only a dumbass would do, like when you look in the tv guide and think to yourself well it looks like the monthly screening of stripes of regular tv is on I think ill sit through the hole thing for the seventh time… ( ie it happens a lot with tv films) If you love a film and its rewatchable then that’s fine but I don’t rewatch obsessively



FyI - why would I pay out people who watch films over and over again when this thread is dedicated to just that – well if I was paying them out where’s the fun in doing it behind there backs? I thought you said you liked pissing people off. ;D
