Ten On Tuesday

I may have brought this up before but it’s worth repeating: I love love love it when you guys send me Ten on Tuesday topics. This week’s topic comes from Kym and I think it’s one you’re going to love: 10 Movies I Can Watch Over and Over Again and Never Tire Of. Let’s go to the movies!

  1. Gone With the Wind. The one, the only, perfect movie ever. It’s got it all: romance, drama, history, humor, costumes, sets. Simply the best.
  2. When Harry Met Sally. My most favorite rom com. I’ve seen it so many times I can quote huge chunks of it.
  3. Gettysburg. This is more for Dale than for me but I don’t mind watching it annually on the anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg.
  4. The Godfather. The first. Maybe the second but definitely the first. It’s brilliant.
  5. Steel Magnolias. Ahhh, the tragedy. And the cast – Julia Roberts, Sally Field, Shirley MacKaine, Dolly Parton, Tom Skerritt – so many of my favorites.
  6. Arthur. Dudley Moore plays the best and funniest drunk ever. If I’m channel surfing and this is on I have to stop and watch it.
  7. Monty Python & The Holy Grail. Do I really need to say anymore?
  8. Young Frankenstein. See #7.
  9. Elf. It doesn’t even have to be Christmas for me to be able to watch this movie. It’s funny and heartwarming and I adore it.
  10. The Princess Bride. Everybody loves a fairytale!

    Any of the Die Hard movies, Beverly Hills Cop (classic Eddie Murphy!), Sommersby, Last of the Mohicans, almost any Disney movie, Lethal Weapon, Indiana Jones (any and all), Gone With The Wind, and The Wizard of Oz.

    what a diverse list! I’ve never seen Gettysburg or Monty Python, but When Harry Met Sally and The Godfather would be on my list (along with You’ve Got Mail, Love Actually and Pretty Woman)

  3. Marcy says

    Dirty Dancing and Love Actually are my go-to repeat movies. I’m sure there are many more that I can’t think of right now! I also LOVE a good tragedy.

    Shamefacedly admitting that any time a Harry Potter movie is on, we watch it all over again no matter how many times, which is plenty, we’ve seen them all. Annie Hall, heavy-duty political All the President’s Men and it’s funny twin, Dick. Also light political-extremely funny My Fellow Americans, and our tiptop favorite, The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming.

    Princess Bride should make all the lists! (It made mine. :) )

    I could also have added the first few Harry Potter movies, but didn’t in favor of other non-series movies.

  6. Jo says

    Your list is great. i would add Dirty Dancing and The Big Chill (is this an indication of shallowness?)–oh, and Shirley Valentine!

  7. Brenda says

    I love vintage film—anything with the Warner Brothers gangsters—Jimmy Cagney, George Raft, Bogart, Edward G. Robinson.

  8. Hannah says

    I’m with you on a few I’m sure you can guess them
    Princess Bride, When Harry Met Sally, Gone With The Wind…
    Pretty In Pink, St Elmo’s Fire, Say Anything, The Outsiders, Titanic (duh)
    and Spice World 😉

    If you did this for tv series we would definitely have a couple in common!

  9. says

    Topkapi, That Man from Rio, The Pink Panther, The Court Jester, The Wizard of Oz, Mary Poppins, Roger Rabbit, O Brother Where Art Thou?, Down By Law, Help!

    Check the unfamiliar ones out, you’ll be glad you did!

    I’m behind in my blog reading this week. My first thought was Hitchcock’s Rebecca and Terms if Endearment. You hit my other faves. What a great topic! You can’t miss with lists of movies and books.
