Can never refuse the opportunity to watch The Big Lebowski again, along with Cool Hand Luke, Usual Suspects, Things to Do When You Die in Denver, 7 Pyscopaths, The Amazon Queen, Casablanca, any Marx Brothers film , It's A Mad Mad World, Magnolia, Lone Star, No Country for Old Men, The Man on the Train ( French version) and although I have to build myself up for it every three years or so the sprawling flawed magnificence of Heavens Gate.
Anyone said The Shawshank Redemption yet? Even if they have, it must be about time we watched it again anyway by now
I don't really have the time to watch films again and again these days, but I might make an exception for certain David Lynch films, especially Lost Highway.
That's one I often pop on when everyone has fucked off out.
North Sea Hijack. Many a Sunday afternoons to do list has been, er, hijacked by Roger Moore's misogynistic oil rig combat expert and a plethora of chunky knit rollnecks.
For fFolkes' sake
Steady on, just because a chap enjoys a bit of Northern Soul, the odd Archers film and occasionally - very occasionally - posts a nude selfie or two on the internet is no reason to toss insults at him
The Innocents (1961) - IMDb
OMG yes - terrific film.
Guilty pleasure though, with Carrie and pretty much anything with Kate O Mara in it (with vampires, preferably)
Have been considering rewatching that for a while. Need to catch up on bleak and violent reality.
High Plains Drifter
Howard the Duck
Big Trouble in Little China
The Missouri Breaks
Something Wild, weirdly enough.
Not least for this....
I always feel so sentimental and longing about this film....and watch it time and time again
Flight of the Navigator
Will always watch them if they hapen to be on.
Two I've bought on DVD recently for when I have time - The Big Lebowski & Ferris Buellers Day Off. Have tried to convince the 14 year old to watch the latter with me, but she doesn't seem too impressed.
Recorded recently to catch up on again - Platoon, Goodfellas.
Saw Raiders of the the Lost Ark again recently.
Watched dozens of times.
Predator 2 is well worth it, not that its ever on TV anymore. For a starters danny glover and gary busey. For a second danny glover is actually the better hunter than arnie. That pred takes down an entire unit of the hardest of the hard and arnie only just merks it. Danny Glover chases the thing across a concrete jungle dodging whiffy jamaican stereotypes and his own government black ops who want the beast captured. He hunts it into its onw house and then kills it with its own weapon. Its clear who the best pred killer is here
Films I watch relatively often;
The Blues Brothers
One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest
An American Werewolf in London
A Room for Romeo Brass
