Again and Again and Again Films

I posted this on Twitter earlier

" 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!
  • Grease
  • 300
  • Time Traveller's Wife
  • Casino Royale and Skyfall ( not so much Quantum of Solace)
  • The Piano
  • Schindlers List
  • Inception
  • 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!
