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.

Yes, it's a great movie by the great director Sergio Leone.

That's excellent and the book by William Goldman is excellent.

I watch pretty much everything twice (or more.) I have a terrible memory for movie names so I never remember if I've seen one or not. Usually somewhere about 2/3rds of the way through it dawns on me that I've seen it before. I'm a little slow sometimes. Wink

Sure, fishin'. You're about as slow as Sea Biscuit.

Oh, my gawd, that was one fantastic movie, but strangely enough, I will probably never watch it again. There are some movies that only need to be seen once. Stop me before I go on a diatribe.

Yes, onyx. My Fair Lady--the music alone is worth the watch. Dear Audrey Hepburn. She was almost as adept at lip sync as George Clooney.

Husker, you brat. I cried all the way through Sea Biscuit. You didn't tell me it would be that emotional. Wonder if it is historically accurate.

I hope so

I don't think I've seen that one yet. Wink

When I go with quinn to the movie rental place I have to ask her which one's we've seen. I pick out a few and then she tells me that we've seen them all already. hehehe

Partial List, including some I don't expect many will agree with:

American Graffiti
Barry Lyndon
Between Two Worlds
Chicken Run
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Monty Python's Life of Brian
Inherit the Wind
The Music Man
The Green Mile
Quigley Down Under
The African Queen

---and a couple of hundred more, but these popped into my head first.

Ah, fishin'. Quinn's your seeing eye dog, and best in show, I would say.

Greyfan, Quigley Down Under..hmmm. Was that Tom Selleck's movie?

The African queen, of course. I can still see Kathryn Hepburn throwing that long, skinny leg over that old tug, and Bogey shivering at the leeches.

Inherit the wind--Gene Kelley made a marvelous Mencken, and Frederick March. Didn't he play William Jennings Bryant? Lord have mercy, folks.

My word. We shouldn't forget Driving Miss Daisy. Watched that several times, just to see Morgan Freeman's exceptional performance. God, what an actor.

The Name of the Rose bored me. It was an interesting story, but I just couldn't get into the movie. I have always thought that it would make a good read, tho.

Gonna go add that to me read list.

Some movies I just keep coming back to. I'll watch just about any movie I've seen before more than once, but for most I have to be in the mood. There are some, tho, that I watch whenever I see them on.

Back to the Future, Pts 1 -3
Revenge of the Nerds
Better Off Dead
Say Anything
Grosse Pointe Blank
(Okay, just about any John Cuzack movie)
Any Star Trek
Any Star Wars
True Lies

And there's more, too.

My kids were watching Austin Powers in Goldmember Tuesday morning. I found myself watching it again even though I just watched it Sunday night.

There's just something about movies. . . Of all the jobs I miss the most, the bennies from working in a theater is the top of the list.

I never tire of seeing Carousel, South Pacific, Cabaret, Words and Music, all of those old musicals, again.

Neither do I tire of watching the Hitchcock classics.
Actually, I watch most movies for the second time. lol

I just watched Moonstruck, Notorious and Duel in the Sun for the third time. A lot depends on who's in the movie. I never tire of Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman, Gregory Peck, to name a few.

ehBeth, I don't remember much about Shampoo. Warren Beatty, no? Julie Christie?

Hey, Turner. Welcome to A2K. Love most of the Star Treks..

Turner, I highly recommend the book version of The Name of the Rose. The film was slow going, and if it hadn't had Sean Connery, I doubt I'd have stayed awake. But the book is fascinating. I'm also am a fan of Foucault's Pendulum (also by Umberto Eco).

I love the old musicals too. I wish they played them on TV more often. I might have to break down and start owning DVDs...

Letty: I just knew you were going to say "lust in the dust". Laughing

Mac: Do you get Turner Classic Movies? It's on standard cable now. They recently aired Oklahoma, Words and Music, Brigadoon, West Side Story, Night and Day and more. This is Oscar month and they are also showing movies that had some sort of nomination.
