    What is your favorite movie of all time? And, approximately how many times have you watched it.

    Mine: "Sound of Music"--- probably have watched it more than 20X...plus, I have the dvd so I can watch it anytime I feel like it.

    lots of favorites--when star wars came out, i went 14 times--until i realized it was the music i was in love with. got the soundtrack, and never went to see it again. favorites: Harvey, Arsenic and Old Lace, Philadelphia Story, Sleepless in Seattle, Blade Runner, Addams Family, Everafter, Princess Bride, and the list goes on. if i had to pick two--harvey, and blade runner. harvey is one of the best, ever--jimmy stewart at his best: gentle insanity--or not, depending on your perspective. blade runner, for the real message--what is the value of a life?

    May favorite one is Fried Green Tomatoes. I have no idea as to how many times I have watched it. If I am flipping thru the channels and it is on I have to stop and watch it no matter how far into the movie it is. I have only seen the beginning 2 times.

    When I was in high school, the movie Arthur came out. Don't know what it was but Dudley Moore cracked me up. Saw it so many times I could recite the movie in it's entirety.

    Now, I never tire of seeing Gone With The Wind or Jaws. Go figure. :roll: :wink: :lol:

    My daughter and I have watched Parent Trap soooooo many times! We know it by heart and she does a great British accent!!! We even know what parts they cut when it's on television. My daughter says I'm a Julia Roberts, Sandra Bullock fan as I tend to have their movies and listen while I sew.

    The Wizard of Oz.
    E.T. This one is sad and uplifting at the same time.

    The Day The Earth Stood Still...I love old black and white movies!
    Bedknobs and Broomsticks. Angela Lansbury is marvelous in this.



    And speaking of movies, have you seen the one about a 1928 movie of Charlie Chaplain, where on a sidewalk right outside a movie premiere showed what looked like a woman or a man in drag, talking on a cell phone? I've watched it several times, and it left me confused. There are masses of stuff about it running all around the internet!!!

My daughter watched Grease until I knew every line of the movie, son watch "The Christmas Story" at least 100 times (one year 5 people gave him the video!!!) and DH LOVES Quigley Down Under (I like it, too). I can walk in the room, see the TV and know IMMEDIATELY what's happening if Quigley is on.....

    Oh, I have several. But two of my favorites were not "BIG" movies. Same Time Next Year" with Alan ALda and Ellen Burstyn and Bicentenial Man with Robin Williams. If you have not seen the later rent or netflix it. I guarantee you will need a hankie by the end

    I'm sure it is just an big scam Like when if you played (I think it was) Rubber Soul backwards it keept saying Paul is Dead or or like in the movie 3 Men and a Baby you could see a strange figure hiding behind the curtains in one scean. That one turned out to be a standee of Ted Dansen that someone had but there as a joke. And nowadays with all the stuff you can manipulate with a computer you never know what to believe!

    -------------------------------------
    I'm not familiar with Coast 2 Coast, sounds like it might be a talk show. This was and at this time still is on AOL sites. I've watched it many times and the old lady's actions are exactly like most of the people on our streets now. There's a good explanation somewhere, but I suspect it would take the joy out of knowing!!
    I gave up Santa Claus reluctantly, love the Easter Bunny because I love animals, don't believe in witches, even though one of my aunts was one and did things I can't explain even now..but cell phones in 1928? Sure wish Isaac Asimov were alive now, he could write a real good book about it and make it very real.

    No matter how good a movie is, I seldom want to watch it repeatedly.

    But every Christmas I watch "The Snowman", by Raymond Briggs- magical.
