Name 5 films you have seen 5 times

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

A hand for each hand was planned for the world.
Why don’t my fingers reach?

Millions of grains of sand in the world.
Why such a lonely beach?

Where is a voice to answer mine back?
Where are two shoes that click to my clack?
I’m . . . all alone . . . in the world.
