Movies I haven't tired of despite repeated viewings

  • Star Wars
  • The Empire Strikes Back
  • Raiders of the Lost Ark
  • Dead Again
  • 12 Monkeys
  • Casablanca
  • The Sound of Music
  • West Side Story
  • The Wizard of Oz
  • The Edge
  • It's a Wonderful Life
  • The Good, The Band and The Ugly

Have you seen Once Upon a Time in the West? It is by the same director as The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly, and anybody who has followed my lists here knows that I am a huge fan. The style is the same, and the film is hypnotic and atmospheric in a way few ever are. I highly recommend it to any lover of GBU.

Shalom, y'all!

lbangs, you are so diplomatic.

Let me suggest to you that a very substantial part of the hypnotic and atmospheric power of Sergio Leone's great western is provided by Ennio Morricone's awesome musical score. I'd provide a link to a sound file of it for you, but I suppose you're still saving up for a sound card. Beg, borrow, or...but get one; you are missing out on a large part of the web experience.

Morricone's score is fantastic. I owned a terrific compilation of his film work, and I really need to get it back. Just like I really need a sound card...

Unfortunately, I really need a new computer. 99% of my Listology posting is created on my computer at work, and my home computer is so worthless, we finally stopped paying for Internet access. We were never using it! Yes, though, an excellent sound card will be a must when I finally save up the bucks for the new system.

Shalom, y'all!

If you like Sergio Leone, then check out Once Upon a Time in America. It is an amazing film about Jewish gangster buddies who grow up in New York. Although the film is long, over 3 hours, it is definetely worth seeing.

Terrific film; now if I could only get my hands on a widescreen version of it. Perhaps it will find its way to DVD one day...

Shalom, y'all!

Allow me to second sebreg's recommendation. Just as ...WEST is a great western, ...AMERICA is a great gangster film: top cast, including Robert De Niro and James Woods, totally engrossing story, and, again, a Morricone score.

According to Chronicle of the Cinema, a big, heavy book on loan from a friend, Leone wanted to show the three protagonists from GBU getting killed at the beginning of Once Upon a Time in the West, but Eastwood wouldn't do it.

A great subject for a list Andrea!

My "infinitely watchable" movie list (aka movies I rent and/or watch a lot) might be something like...Annie Hall, Austin Powers: International, Dazed and Confused, Jennifer 8, Man of Mystery, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Brazil, The Cable Guy, The Craft, Evil Dead 2, Guys and Dolls, The Killer (John Woo), The Matrix, Night of the Hunter, Pulp Fiction, The Silence of the Lambs, Star Wars, Swingers, Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead, True Romance, West Side Story.

I'd sit down and watch these any time!

No, there is no movie called Man of Mystery.

maybe you got confused...cause i see that you typed "Austin Powers: International" and then a bit later in the list you wrote "Man of Mystery." so just put them both together :)

Many of those movies I've seen a few times and could see again (or want to).
