I love watching movies. PERIOD. I also love watching the same movie over and over again. I watch movies of all genre and I don’t pick the movies ~ they pick me [pathetic attempt at being pathetic, I guess].
Hence, below are my most watched movies of all times in the order of *the times I’ve watched them*.
Crashing in the fifth position, with 7.0 IMDb rating, is……. a sports movie – WE ARE MARSHALL. And like many sports movie, this too is based on a true incident. A good-looking hunk Mr. McConaughey [who I’d underestimated in the acting part] bowled me over with his transformation as a football coach. It’s such an inspiring movie that whenever I need the feel to boost my self-worth, I watch it and it is quite often, if I may add. No wonder it’s made it into my list. [Other sports movie I loved, liked and cried rivers over but didn’t make it here are ~ Rudy and Remember the Titans].
Why do I keep watching this movie? It’s because this movie has made me see winning isn’t everything, at times not giving up is a victory in itself.
The movie that’s made into my number Four is the one that got Mr. Mark Wahlberg [one of the eight men I’d give up my single-hood for] his first Oscar nomination. Big names, twisted plot and still a great movie that I keep coming back to 😉 I watched this movie for Marky Mark and will keep watching for him again. He is the biggest *motive* behind this movie appearing here in this list.
It would’ve climbed higher if not for Jack Nicholson. Sorry but I can’t stand the guy and despise him even more in this movie. aaargh Every silver lining has a dark ugly cloud, metaphorically speaking where silver lining is Mark and dark ugly cloud is jack nicholson.
In the 3rd place is “Spirited Away”. It’s one of the most amusing animated movies I’ve enjoyed watching over and over and over again. The characters Haku and Chihiro are so animatedly real. I love the way the story unfolds and folds. I didn’t know it had won an Oscar Award in the year 2001 for Best Animated feature :0
I simply love the simple story line, the aesthetically appealing animation and the spirited-away feeling it brings about every time I watch it.
The runner up for my Five Fine films is SNATCH and trust me when I say I’ve lost count as to how many times I’ve watched this movie. I know the movie back to front and still enjoy every second of it.
This movie had me at “What do I know about diamonds…? Don’t they come from Antwerp?”
I love the exasperated/ frustrated conversation between Vinny and Sol, Turkish and Tommy… and Bricktop is scary as hell and I know I can go on and on and on about this one here. It’s hilariously witty or is it wittily hilarious. Just the thought of this movie is enough to crack me up 😀
AND now the finest film AND my top most watched Movies.
By mentioning this movie itself, I feel I’m doing less than justice to it. Forgive me Miramax but this movie’s been my therapy for a long long time to discard it NOW.
So my most watched movie of all time ISSSSSSSSSSS….. GOOD WILL HUNTING
Even as I was typing those 3 words, the music began to play in my mind. It’s only after I started blogging that I have stopped watching this movie. Otherwise I was used to watching this movie every night, EVERY NIGHT and I’m not exaggerating when I say that this was my weekend movie, weekday movie, feel-good movie, weak-day movie, strong day movie, breakfast movie, lunch movie, bed-time movie and every other genre I have for movies. For me, this movie is timeless.
Maybe the love for this movie comes from the fact that I can relate to Will Hunting in a lot of ways, except for his gift for mathematics. The first time I watched this movie [a long long time back] I gaped and gasped when Sean says “Maybe you’re perfect right now, maybe you don’t wanna ruin that…” I knew then that he was talking to me. I have grown up from that stage to where I am today but had it not been for Will and Sean, maybe I’d have been a different ME.
Some lines are pretty corny but the emotional healing is just what I always count on while watching this movie.
Some movies that may make it to this list someday —>
