Here goes:

  • Dr. Zhivago:  Saw this in college for the first time. Perhaps the last movie I’ve seen that is so long it needs an intermission! Gripping from beginning to end.
  • Saving Private Ryan:  Having been in combat myself, this movie grabs me every time.
  • Mrs. Doubtfire:  Most of our family has watched this so many times we almost have it memorized. We use, “Brace yourself, Effie!” for many purposes!
  • O Brother, Where Art Thou?:  We see something new each time we see this one. And the “old timey” soundtrack is fantastic.
  • Good Morning, Vietnam:  Looks like Robin Williams gets the only second mention. Also another combat movie.

Honorable Mention for the best lines ever – Cher’s character in Moonstruck, “Get over it!” and “Snap out of it!” – one to each boyfriend.

    This brought me smiles, Joe, and although Mrs. Doubtfire didn’t make my original list, it’s a lot of fun to watch.

  2. Thanx Joe for the reminder of more good films to watch again!

  3. Definitely some rewatchable choices…really enjoyed each of them (though that’s not really the right word for Saving Private Ryan) the first time around! Oh, and “Snap out of it!” is one of my all-time favorite lines, especially the way Cher said it…it’s one I’ve used myself more than once (minus the slaps, of course).

    Loved this, Joe. All great movies that I enjoyed very much.

    Interesting list, I’ve only seen two of them. Loved Dr. Zhivago, but it was so-o-o long, I don’t know if I would have the patience to watch it again. Mrs. Doubtfire is definitely one to rewatch multiple times.

    A wonderful list, Joe. I loved the soundtrack from “Oh Brother Where Art Thou?” too! The others are special for other, also valid reasons, but mostly because you love them!
