      Hmmm??? Am I the only person in the world who has no desire to see a movie a second time? They always end the same.

              One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest
              The Godfather
              Tootsie
              Olympia (Leni Riefenstahl)
              Mad Max II (Road Warrior for you Yanks...)
              Some Like It Hot
              LOTR Trilogy (HOW could I forget...)
              The World According to Garp
              A Clockwork Orange

              and (though it's not really a movie) "The Olympiad"

              Some of these I could watch again and again... and not because of dongs or cross-dressing...

                  No, you're not. But I have made exceptions for a few classics that were so good that I didn't mind seeing them again, knowing that I'd thoroughly enjoy them again.

                    I enjoy watching a great movie again with someone who hasnt seen it before.

                      Just finished seeing Apocalyse Now for probably the 50th time - I have three sections of seniors every year and they all read Heart of Darkness and then watch AN (with some commentary by me, natch!), and write a comprehensive thematic compare/contrast paper.

                      Not only do they really like it, but even I enjoy it every time, even though I know the dialogue by heart now. I guess that's how the Rocky Horror Picture Show crowd feels. :roll:

                        Actually, the movie "Clue" a few years ago was shot with three different endings. Depending which showing you saw, the "real" ending would be different.

                        I do find that I often miss the beginning of films I see on television, so another viewing allows me to sometimes see the beginning I previously missed.

                        Of course, certain classics are worth seeing again and again - especially if I haven't seen it in a long time. I pick up things on the re-viewing that I missed the first time around.

                        And I've reached the age that if I only saw a film once decades ago, I have probably forgotten some of the details.

                          Funny, but when I read the books, I felt it was not something to be read in bits and pieces. So while I was on Christmas break from school one year, I read the whole 2,000 pages (+/-) in a couple weeks straight - constantly refering back and forth to the Middle Earth guide I also had. I haven't tried to watch the three movies together yet.

                            do you ever change that syallabus ? :P

                            isn't it about time for something like hamlet or king lear ?

                            ( you can watch mel gibson's film after )
