" There are a lot of films I can watch more than once. Thor isn't one of them "
Some people agreed, although it was suggested 'I could mute it and watch the pretty man' ( thanks @Jooleroo :) )
I love watching films, I love TV. I love watching my favourites again and again. But there are just some things which don't really warrant a second showing. Although they were great the first time round, some are just downright disappointing.
A favourite is comforting, you know what you're going to get; excellent acting may inspire, make you chuckle, or just an enjoyable way to spend a couple of pleasant hours relaxing. And a great film just gets better the more it's watched. From anticipation of the killer one liner to quirky characterisation, spectacular scenery or just being downright entertaining, here are a list of my 'can be seen more than once' films
- The Matrix, one and two (but not three)
- Dirty Dancing!
- Time Traveller's Wife
- Casino Royale and Skyfall ( not so much Quantum of Solace)
- The Piano
- Schindlers List
- Kramer Versus Kramer
- Any of the Transformers films
- Any Star Trek film
- Wizard of Oz
- All of the Indianna Jones films
- Forest Gump
- War Horse
- It's A Wonderful Life
- Any of the X-Men series
- The Postman
It's not a complete list, but it's a start.
So what makes a film 'a one to watch again' and what'd be on your list? Post a comment and let me know!
