OT: Over and Over

Recommended Posts

Since it appears many people will be spending more time these days self quarantining, there is more time to watch some quality movies.  I've put together a list of 13 movies, that if they pop up on the TV, I'll watch regardless of how many times I've seen them before.  Not saying they're the greatest of all time, just ones I really enjoy.  My list could have been much longer than thirteen, but I figured Hollywood shouldn't have any more scholarships than the Husker basketball team.  Here's my list in no particular order:

 

The Help

Green Book

Second Hand Lions

Count of Monte Christo

Field of Dreams

Lion King (the original)

Mississippi Burning

The Patriot

The Green Mile

Big Jake

The Legend of Bagger Vance

Ghost

Tombstone

 

Let's turn this into a mini cip contest.  Post your favorite 13 movies and whoever gets the most upvotes will get something from Nebraska Star Beef.  Not sure what yet, but for you medical mask wearing people, we'll ship it to your door.  😀

That film too really shook me like no other. Talked with a friend at the time, said he didn’t look at anything the same for a long time either. I think it might’ve hit “too close to home” in the way a lot of us were living....

Well first of all if you are doing a list of all-time best movies you have to really qualify it to say all-time best movies other than The Godfather & The Godfather II.   Those are in a class by themselves and nothing else really compares.   

 

After that this would be my list:

 

Caddyshack

Animal House

Bull Durham

Lord of the Rings Trilogy (3 in 1)

Shawshank Redemption

Pulp Fiction

Silence of the Lambs

Field of Dreams

Sons of Katie Elder

A Touch of Class

 

I am sure I am missing a few that belong on this list - but that is what I came up with off the top of my head in 10 minutes.

We streamed "Knives Out" last night and it's quite good and is along this lines in terms of a whodunit 

Yup. Lots of fun!

Have you seen “Kalifornia” with Pitt & Juliette Lewis...? A murderous, delinquent road trip goes wrong.

Yep, also "Thelma and Louise" (which I didn't like). Incidentally, I finally saw "The Tree of Life" last night and haven't quite figured out whether it was a piece of pretentious claptrap or one of the finest pieces of cinema of the past decade. I'll have to think about it a bit more.

I watched that last night, too.  Definitely Oscar-worthy.

I’ll go with pretentious claptrap & I was never a big “Thelma & Louise”  fan either. “Burn After Reading” & “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” I thought were throw aways for him too, where he certainly wasn’t taxed.

Watched another Brad Pitt movie I had never seen last night and liked it: "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" . It probably didn't do well because they couldn't fit it onto the marquee.
