    Having just read the "which movie" thread I was reminded I haven't watched a movie in years but do recognise many titles mentioned so the question is name 3 movies that you have watched more than once.

    1 - Saving private Ryan. (original)

    2 - One flew over the cuckoos nest.

    3 - Blade Runner (original)

    Clerks
    Ferris Beuller’s Day Off
    Chasing Amy

    These are the 3 films I’ve watched more than any other. Back to The Future 2 is probably close behind, then probably the rest of John Hughes’ 80s coming of age type films, Kevin Smith’s back catalogue, original Star Wars, and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

    Rockin' With Seka
    Deep Throat
    Duel.... the bit where our hero's car is overheating cos he didn't change the dodgy radiator hose, and the car is losing power and speed on the steep ascent whilst the truck behind him makes ground, is incredible. I can relate to that moment cos I get every bit as agitated when waiting for the kettle to boil; I have zero patience.

    Impossible to answer this one. Thing is we watch a movie most nights (DVDs). Never had a TV license so the TV is used exclusively for DVD watching and we've got 5 to 6 hundred of 'em and have watched them all loads of times...

    I wouldn't say it was one of my favourites, but a recent film I've seen a few times is Thor Ragnarok, and I just watched it again last night cos it was on. I'm not the biggest superhero fan but this one is brilliant.

    Does anyone remember..?
    South Pacific (the R&H musical version) because it has had a lasting effect on my life - in particular I fell in love with France Nuyen (Liat) -- as did every male who watched it, I suppose.
    2001 A Space Odyssey
