Flicks you'll watch again and again? - 11/23/13 06:40 PM


Me and the dogs stretch out on the couch most Sunday mornings for a nap, but sometimes? We tune into flicks just too good to sleep through. That we've seen 'em so many times we know the dialog? Don't matter. Our short list ~

Rope
Legally Blonde
The Full Money

Now, I'm not looking for inspiration, but the pups really want some variety. Ideas?

Jesse James and Johnny Ringo will not send anyone their share of dog treats, but they really care about your opinion. Hello? My dogs are smarter than most members of Congress.

Sooo Fkn' Really

I'll admit it. I like Legally Blonde a lot.

I know--chick flick, but I like it and I'm proud!

I'm addicted to the SiFy somethingnado franchise. Not! smirk

Let's see, they've had Sharknado, Ice Twisters, Space Twisters, Stonado… Maybe next, vegetarian versions like Tomatonado, or Potatonado. Or maybe a classic Mac forum version, Bloody Toenado! laugh

Re: Flicks you'll watch again and again? - 11/24/13 01:31 PM

.

Just about agree with all youse guys have suggested. Add to my list any WWII movie or 1930s/40s prison movies.

And throw in Snake Pit for an encore!

I have already instructed my daughter that if I get oldtimers or have a stroke that she is to keep Turner Classic Movies on in my room and 1930/40s music [not at the same time]. I guaranteed her that I would hear them.

Re: Flicks you'll watch again and again? - 11/25/13 03:52 AM


For MY Money;
just about every Dustin Hoffman movie

he's just a damned good actor.

Re: Flicks you'll watch again and again? - 11/25/13 06:49 AM

Yep. Shawshank Redemption is a favorite,

I read somewhere that in the book, Tim Robins character was actually guilty of his murder. I wonder how that worked with that kid he tutored in prison ?

Nup..

Andy Dufresne was one of the few men in
Shawshank Prison who was actually innocent.

(I happen to be holding a copy of the book
it's taken from ri'chere in my hot lil' hand.)
Two of my favorite short stories-become movies
Taken from the same Stephen King book,
Different Seasons

"Shawshank Redemption"
(Hope Springs Eternal: Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption)

"Stand By Me"
(Fall From Innocence: The Body)

My other favorite Stephen King Book/Movie is
"The Green Mile"
That is counted among my "DON'T MISS" Tom Hanks Movies

Dave

In fact the only difference between the book & movie
is that Morgan Freeman's character, "Red" is a
Red-Headed Irishman in the book...
...if you listen carefully, when Tim Ribbons ("Andy")
first meets "Red" in the Movie, he asks "Why 'RED'?"
..to which Morgan Freeman gives a little shrug,
replying "Maybe it's because I'm Irish." smile

The original. And I do mean The Original. The Japanese version without Perry Mason (Steve Martin - LOL).
It's soooo much better than the watered down American version.

Singles are tough.
I tend to watch Directors movies over and over.
Capra.
Corman.
Hitchcock.
Harryhausen.
Burton.
Kurosawa.
Kubrick.
The hits are great, but the b-sides are sometimes better.
