Most watched DVD/s in your collection & fave part?
Here is something interesting for a discussion. Which DVD/s in your collection do you never get tired of watching, over and over again. And for added bonus, your favourite scene and or lines in the film/s?

I'll be back later with my own list. Have to think about this one. But I just thought it would be a fun topic to dicuss. What do you think?

Agreed, all threads are announcements (never a bad thing) or discussions that last no more than 2 replies Tongue

I have many films in my collection that I'll watch over and over and over, sometimes in the same day!

Independence Day (1996): It's a fun movie, it's not supposed to be a logical serious film. You sit back, and watch some explosions go on with aliens flying around. Favourite part has to be the fade in when it says "July 3". I know in this post 9/11 world that can seem a little "psycho" or sick or what have you, but it's a destruction movie, and I think that shot is really well done.
"Remember, nothin' but love for ya, nothin' but love", Will Smith on the mothership.

The Italian Job (1969): Love this movie with a passion. It took me a few times to really appreciate just how wonderful it is. Favourite part, of course is the getaway. "You're only supposed to blow the BLOODY DOORS OFF!" Charlie when the blow up the van.

Batman Returns (1992): Best "Batman" movie. "Begins" is fantastic, but in my mind, this will remain as the great one. Is it a Batman movie or Tim Burton movie? It's both, it's a Tim Burton movie with Batman in it (unlike "Batman" ). Gothic visuals, Penguin makeup, Catwoman, all add to this wonderful film. Favourite parts: The opening when the Cobblepots toss little Oswald into the sewers and the ending when the Penguin rises from the water with black blood gushing from his nose and mouth, the music adds so much to that scene. "It's always the so-called normal guys that always let you down. Sickos never scare me, at least they're committed" Selina Kyle on relationships.

Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993): Best animated film from the 90s. Gangsters, Batman, The Joker, Batman's origins, love, everything you need. Great score (by the late great Shirley Walker) and just a great movie. "Don't touch me old man, I don't know where you've been!" The Joker to crime boss Sal "the Wheezer" Sylvestra

Forrest Gump (1994): This is really a great movie. A simple story of a simple man who just does stuff. I trust you all have seen it so I won't go on. Too many favourite parts, too many lines, although "I gotta pee!" comes to mind faster than any other. Great music, both score and soundtrack.

Ferris Beuller's Day Off (1986): High School didn't seem so bad when Ferris was around. Favourite part: The Parade Scene, naturally. "When Cameron was in Egypt's land... Let my Cameron, goooooooo." Cameron, "dying".

Se7en (1995): Good thriller, very intense. I like it. Favourite part: When they're chasing John Doe in the apartment building/streets. "Ernest Hemingway once wrote: 'The world is a fine place, and worth fighting for.' I agree with the second part." Morgan Freeman at the end.

Planet of the Apes (1968): Classic Sci Fi, doesn't get much better than this. Favourite parts: The chase/hunt, the end. "Get you're stinking paws off me you damned dirty ape!" "It's a mad house, A MAD HOUSE!" "You cut up his brain you bloody baboon!" "YOU MANIACS! YOU BLEW IT UP! AWW DAMN YOU! GOD DAMN YOU ALL TO HELL!"

12 Monkeys (1995): I love me Gilliam time travel (or is it?). Thought provoking (think about the movie and what happens) film. Gilliam's second best that I've seen, behind of course, "Brazil" (which would be here, but I don't watch very often, hard to watch over and over and over again). Favourite part: The beginning, no wait the end, or was that the beginning? The airport scene Wink  "I am insane, and you are my insanity."

Blade Runner (1982), well actually '92 I suppose...: You all know it, you all know why. Favourite part: The opening shot of 2019 LA, the reflective eye (of God watching over us? But wait, it's a replicant's eye... Shocked ) Last lines by Roy Batty "I've seen things you people wouldn't even believe. Attack ships on fire on the shoulder of Orion. I've seen C-Beams glitter in the dark at Tanhauser Gate. All these moments, will be lost, in time. Like, tears in rain."

The Aviator (2004): Great film, I think Scorsese's best since "Casino" (well not now, "The Departed" has that title, but I wait until I see it a few more times on DVD to offically dub it that Tongue). The story of Hughes is told with sympathy and pity for him. His greatness and his downfalls. Favourite part: The meeting with the early MPAA (I know what it's called, I forget at the moment, the something code). "Jet planes are the way of the future, way of the future, way of the future."

GoodFellas (1990): This is a recent addition to my collection, and already I've seen it umpteen times. Favourite parts: Tracking shot of Henry and Karen going to the Copa with "And THen He Kissed Me" playing, when they show all the whacked wiseguys with "Layla" playing, the "Last Day as a Wiseguy", editing was fantastic there, and the last moments, Pesci shooting at the camera (Great Train Robbery homage, love it) with Sid Vicious' "My Way" blaring on the soundtrack. Scorsese is the master of songs and film, as well as the tracking shot, although "Children of Men" is hard to ignore in this matter, those shots were unbelieveable.

Well that's it for now, I'll try to think of more.

Serenity(because I'm a huge Firefly fan boy)- total amount of viewings: 30, favorite part - The introuction to Wash(Alan Tudyk) and Mal(Nathan Fillion):
I merely liked Serenity when I first saw it, but after I watched Firefly, I watched Serenity again and I freaking loved it. I've seen it 30 times(as stated above) since then, and I still freaking love it.

Here is mine...

Air Force One. The DTS Surround Sound always get me excited. Favourite Line: When Harrison Ford's President Marshall is having a final struggle with Gary Oldman's baddie, right after harrison finishes strapping the parachute around Gary's neck, and screams "Get Off My Plane"! and then he dies in the air.

Speed - I just love any good old movies from the 90's that starred Sandra Bullock. She was sexy and cool and still is! I have many favourite parts and lines in this film, always get to me.
How about when Jack Traven (Keanu Reeves) attempts to board the Bus from the Black Jaguar. He speeds the car a little further before asking the owner.....

Jack: "Are You Insured?"
Owner: "Yeah, Why?"
Then Jack slams on the brake, reverses quickly, and the left door breaks!

Owner: "Broke, my door!!"
Jack: "Sir, I need to take your phone.."
Owner (can't take it anymore): "Take the phone!!"

I always find this scene hilarious!! The other scene is towards the end when Jack and Howard Payne (Dennis Hopper) has a struggle on top of the L.A. Metro train in the tunnel

Howard: "What do you do Jack, I'm smarter than you, huh?"

and Jack sees a light indicator attached to the ceiling, and so he pushes Howard's head up towards the ceiling and then Howard's head get chopped off!
 
JacK: "Yeah, well, I'm taller!"

There are many others - Entrapment, Notting Hill, Miss Congeniality, Grease....too many to list.

Here are some that I just watch bits of maybe 2 or 3 times a year.

True Lies.
The opening, the 10 minute fight and chase that starts in the toilets and ends up on the hotel roof and the harrier attack. The opening credits starting with the Lightstorm logo get the hairs standing up to attention.

The Matrix.
Lobby shootout.

Reloaded.
The Smiths fight, the chateau fight and freeway chase.

These are the discs that are my comfort viewings that I never get tired of.

The Big Lebowski
O Brother
Gunshy
The Ref
Mr Hollands Opus
Meet Joe Black
The Empire Strikes Back
Raiders of the Lost Ark
The Office (1,2 and Xmas Specials)
Seinfeld
Curb Your Enthusiasm
The Fast Show (all discs that are available)
The Abyss (including Under Pressure documentary)
Grosse Point Blank

And that's out of a collection of over 400 or so. So only a very small percentage gets a semi regular dust off.

One of the few DVDs that I have watched multiple times is Casablanca. . . .probably 10 in all.  I know the entire film by heart.  Almost pointless to rewatch it, but I still love it.

I haven't watched it for a while but the disc that pretty much lived in my first DVD player was Ghostbusters - especially for the MST3K-style commentary
