    what films have you found yourself watching more than once?

    i know some of my friends will NEVER watch a film more than once, whereas others will watch something i think is crap every dam day. so it's obvious there's no accounting for taste, as it depends on what it does to you personally.

    so, what movies do you like to watch frequently/regulary, and of particular interest, what movies were you willing to go to the theatre to see more than once?

    me...? movies i saw at the cinema 3 times:
    se7en
    reservoir dogs
    pulp fiction
    12 monkeys
    heat
    usual suspects

    movies i've watched frequently (half dozen or more times) on various mediums (not so much recently :( ):
    clueless
    ace ventura
    an affair to remember
    heathers
    interview with the vampire
    kalifornia
    dream a little dream
    office space
    starship troopers (best CG movie EVER)
    lost boys
    evil dead III (army of darkness [most quotable movie EVER])
    ferris beuhler's day off/breakfast club (same movie basically :D )
    batman (ONLY the first one)
    the crush
    pump up the volume

    there ya go. :)

    I have watched Bad Boys 1 and 2, as well as the Fast and the ****ty 1 and 2. It's just a way to remember the lowest part of my quality scale. :)
    The Million Dollar Hotel ... only time I did not watch a movie to the end.

    Actually, I'm more the guy that watches those movies that others hate ... LOL

    When I was young, I saw Jurassic Park so many times I could recite it. Loved that movie.

    Hands down, The Devils Advocate. I can't seem to escape this movie, it's always on at least one channel at any given moment, and I always find myself watching it. The best part being Al P.'s speech at the end with Reeves.

    I just saw Man On Fire at the cinema, and wow, what a gripping film. Definately will be buying it on DVD when it comes out.

    Reminded me alot of the film Traffic, which was also excellent.
