Movies you can watch over and over again

Post by Jeffk 1970 » Tue Jan 17, 2017 11:24 pm

New list, movies I can watch repeatedly and never get tired of:
1) The Godfather I & II
2) Alien and Aliens
3) Raiders of the Lost Ark
4) The Original Star Wars Trilogy (not the crappy prequels)
5) An American Werewolf in London
6) Terminator I & II
7) Star Trek First Contact
8) Friday the 13th
9) Halloween (the original, not Rob Zombie's crappy remake)
10) John Carpenter's The Thing
11) Lord of the Rings Trilogy (the director's cuts)

Just what I can think of off hand. I'll probably have more.

I've watched the LOTR extended movies every year since I got them. Same time, Xmas to New Years. This coming year I'll add the extended Hobbit movies.

Also Blade I and Blade III.

Science Fiction Films that should be remade

Post by Matthew Ellard » Thu Jan 19, 2017 12:45 am

How about old science fiction movies that could be remade as A-Grade block busters?

1) The Forbin Project (1970) (trailer )
(possibly remade as The Terminator's Skynet.)

2) Fantastic Voyage (1966) ( Trailer = )

3) On the Beach (1959) ( Trailer )

4) Soylent Green ( 1973) ( Trailer )

5) The Monolith Monsters ( 1957) ( Trailer )

6) When Worlds Collide ( 1951) ( Trailer )

I've seen Fantastic Voyage, On The Beach and Soylent Green, though it's probably been more than 20 years.

Big Lebowski, Blade Runner, every movie by Stanley Kurbrick except Eyes Wide Shut, all the Single Tough Guy pics that don't use swords...if I channel surf and catch one of them I say "Oh No" because I'll watch them every time.

Blade?===Hah ha...I already said it: Sword movies are dumb. ((That includes Star Wars)) OH.....only sword movie that I watch every time: Princess Bride.

This makes me sad, Mad Max 2(the road warrior) is so much better than Thunderdome and is on my list.

Blazing Saddles
Princess Bride

Really a list of films I can re-watch occasionally.
Dark City(director's cut) up to the last 10 minutes which really is silly.
Blade Runner(any version)
Mad Max 2(The Road Warrior)
The Thing
Big Trouble in Little China
Miller's Crossing
Shawshank Redemption
The Unforgiven, if nothing else for the threat that Clint makes in the end
Leon(the Professional)

Most of Clint Eastwood's man with no know name films(more than just the Sergio Leone movies)

The really weird one, Dune, I might be the only person on the planet that liked that movie.

Equilibrium is......terrible. It really is just a cliche ridden snore fest that existed to introduce the extraordinarily silly concept of Gun-fu.
@jeffK, of the star trek movies you choose first contact? Weird man.
@Monster, Transformers 2? also weird man! Bad but not in an entertaining way and not any better than the first.

That is the generally accepted consensus.

I also like Dune, but I think Monster and I are the only ones who like Starship Troopers.
Shawshank Redemption is also really good, we've talked about Dark City before, that's another favorite of mine. I also like Unforgiven, I'll toss in all of the Dirty Harry Movies (excluding Dead Pool) and The Outlaw Josey Wales.

Ahhell, do you mean John Carpenter's The Thing or the original?
I like both but John Carpenter's version is a favorite Halloween movie.

That is the generally accepted consensus.

I also like Dune, but I think Monster and I are the only ones who like Starship Troopers.
Shawshank Redemption is also really good, we've talked about Dark City before, that's another favorite of mine. I also like Unforgiven, I'll toss in all of the Dirty Harry Movies (excluding Dead Pool) and The Outlaw Josey Wales.

Ahhell, do you mean John Carpenter's The Thing or the original?
I like both but John Carpenter's version is a favorite Halloween movie.
Definitely John Carpenter's The Thing, probably the best remake ever made in terms of improvement over the original.

The original was just to showcase the director's girlfriend. Didn't work. However, it did give Marshall Dillon some needed work.

Outlaw Josie Wales is pretty good. It has one line that is GREAT: ""I know its a crappy deal buddy... But that's all you got."

Hmmmm.....thats from Joe Kidd. One of the best scenes ever when he throws threatening Don Stroud down the stairs.

Josey Wales was good. Making fun of the Indian cracked me up.

The 3 hour version of Lynch's Dune is actually quite good. The original movie version, that's something like 90 minutes, isn't worth watching.

I have the theatrical cut and the extended cut. I also have the SyFy Channel miniseries. None of this comes close to what the book tried to convey.

Transformers 2 was a crapfest, but it was an extraordinarily beautiful crapfest. I've seen it multiple times and greatly enjoyed it each time.
