Worth Watching Twice

When Harry Met Sally

OK - I've seen many films twice and thought many more are worth a second look but WHMS keeps giving me more - and still leaves that central question unanswered:

"Can men and women really be friends or does sex always get in the way?"

Good morning, all.

I don't go to the cinema much any more, but I do enjoy seeing things on video and late night TV when I have trouble falling asleep. Trouble is, I get caught up in the movie and lie awake until the wee small hours of the morning.

Wilso, I loved that observation about the "running commentary". I have a friend who manages to stand between me and the TV at the most crucial point in the plot. Grrrrrrrrrrrr!

I rented a movie yesterday called The Spider. Talk about weird. I made myself watch it and now wish I hadn't. That's one that I won't be watching twice.

KP, I watched When Harry Met Sally a long time ago. Actually, I started a thread on whether or no men made better friends than women or the converse. Don't know about the intervention of sex in the relationship.

Wilso & Letty- When I was a teenager, I had a friend, Judy. She would delight in telling me the denouement of a film, right before the end. If I could have strangled that girl...................... Evil or Very Mad

He he he, Phoenix. There's one in every epiphany.

I'm gonna reward myself today after I get domestic stuff done, by watching Sea Biscuit.

Later, yawl.

When I'm bored - I like to watch the "The Rock" with Nicholas Cage and Sean Connery - like 6 times now.

When Harry Met Sally must the single worst movie ever made. I wish I'd never seen that 90 minutes of worthless drivel in the first place.

"Blade Runner" well worth any number of viewings; it's one of the only few believable future scenaria, available on 70 mm. And it is crammed with psychological accuracy, and an AI that understands the universe!

Phoenix will point out 2001, of course, and i agree, but i just watched it again lately, and was somewhat disappointed (i think my memory was overly enhanced, and the special effects have been copied so many times by 'wannabe' Stanley Kubricks, that it now looks dated). Rolling Eyes

Actually anything worth doing once, is worth doing twice (or every night, depending upon one's stamina Embarrassed (and the 'titles' available))! Shocked

I watched The Rocky Horror Picture Show on TV the other night. Hadn't seen it in years, and happily sang along to all the songs and remembered an amazing number of the lines we used to scream at the screen. I saw it about 50 times in college and shortly after.

I did work on a stage production of Rocky Horror several years ago, which was the most fun I ever had as a stage manager.

Bo, you're right. I watched The Sixth Sense twice, cause there were unexplained things that I didn't pick up on the first time.

Blade Runner was confusing to me, but I do remember it was Rudger Hauer's first film (I think)

KP, I didn't understand your response, but apparently Husker did.

Wow, Brandon. I watched Once Upon a Time in the West several times. Loved it! Charles Bronson died not too long ago. It didn't do too well at the box office, cause Henry Fonda played the villain, and that didn't sit well with the viewing public. I thought it was one of his best performances.

Letty,

"Chacun a son gout" is French for "each to his own taste"...but we use the phrase in French, here in the UK.

One, Italian, friend of mine says instead "De Gustibus non disputandum est" - Latin for "Matters of taste are not to be disputed"...a bit of a mouthful, though!

Onyx, the movie you described sounds like "A New Kind of Love", with Joann Woodward and Paul Newman.

Thanks, Pete, neat. Smile

How did onyx and Mac get in here so quickly?

Wilso, Shawshank Redemption was one of Steven King's better novelettes. The Body was good, too, and one of the first movies in which River Phoenix starred, (I think).

I do suppose that watching movies is an escape of sorts, but they are an art form, as well.
