Name 5 films you have seen 5 times

Once was enough of that movie for me years ago… the crows scene haunted my mind :upside_down_face:


My Cousin Vinny
Doc Hollywood (the one with Michael J Fox)
The Lord of the Rings (The Two Towers)
Star Wars ( A New Hope)
Legally Blonde

The first two are very funny and I could quote lines from them :laughing:

That line from My Cousin Vinny when they are in court and Joe Pesci asks Marisa Tomei: “Are you suuure?” My husband says that to me in just that way and I always answer “Positive!”

We are a family that speaks in film dialogue quite often, lol!


I could only watch Schindler’s list just one time.


Round 2…
1 Demolition Man
2 Miss Congeniality
3 A Knight’s Tale
4 The Producers - the original
5 The Producers - the remake


I know but I can’t stand Scarlett’s conniving to get beaux/husbands. (Sorry for spoiling the movie for those who haven’t seen GWTW.)

A whole bunch of “chick flicks”… :wink:

The Godfather
Godfather II
Animal House (the soundtrack of my misbegotten youth)


:rofl: I don’t think too many people are concerned about spoilers for an 81 year old movie.

On one geek group I’m a member of, the rule is, you have to include a spoiler warning if the movie/show is a year and a day old, or less. After that, it’s fair game.


LOL… My Cousin Vinny is such a funny movie and it has great quotes! I still say “yutes” all these years later.

The movies I’ve seen many times are:

  1. Jesus of Nazareth (Seems it’s on TV every Easter).
  2. Demolition Man (Love this movie!).
  3. Kung Fu Hustle ( This movie is hilarious ! ).
  4. A Christmas Story (Of course, this is on TV every Christmas).
  5. High Noon (SUCH a great movie).


Karate Kid
Karate Kid 2
Karate Kid 3
The Proposal
Miss Congeniality
The Blind Side


Last Five for me: These are lesser known (perhaps for a reason) but are still very good, in my opinion.

  1. The Way (Martin Sheen, about a father finishing the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela started by his late estranged son.
  2. Mr Mom (Michael Keaton) - sentimental comedy about a recently laid off dad.
  3. My Life (also Michael Keaton, Nicole Kidman) - a man comes to terms with a fast moving fatal cancer. Very touching.
  4. I am Sam (Sean Penn, Michelle Pfeiffer) - a mentally challenged father tries to win back custody of his beloved young daughter.
  5. A Few Good Men (“You can’t HANDLE the truth” (Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson, Demi Moore). This one is a more well known film.

A Few Good Men

I thought Jack Nicholson was just superb in that role.

Trivia: Nicholson’s line was different from “You can’t handle the true.” but he ad libbed the line and the director went with it.


I am Sam is really sad.

I saw that a while ago.

That’s one movie I wish TCM would have more often. I’ve only seen it once or twice and would love to see it again.

1.The Sound of Music

2.Pride and Prejudice (Jennifer Ehle/Colin Firth)—ok so not really a movie…

  1. Monty Python and the Holy Grail

  2. The Scarlet Pimpernel (Anthony Andrews /Jennifer Ehle) —also not really a movie

  3. Airplane

  4. The Blues Brothers (original)

Two these are not really feel films but tv miniseries , but I couldn’t help myself…

Edited to add “White Christmas”—a yearly tradition
