More Of What You Fancy
Tagged a month ago by Stephen Gallagher, who provided his own list here, the object of this particular exercise is to list the films that I’ll watch any number of times. In a way it was lucky I’ve had the time to mull over this particular challenge.
This isn’t a list of the films I consider to be the greatest ever made, especially since I could probably reel off a number of celebrated movies that I wasn’t keen on seeing all the way through the first time and would be happy to never see again. So while some of the titles may not be award winners, overflowing with artistic merit, I do know that if I was at a loose end or bored one rainy weekend afternoon or late evening, any one of these movies could be loaded into the DVD player and I’d be more than happy to watch them from beginning to end, and that’s what counts.
I’m sure there are many more titles I could have included, but given their lack of availability on shiny disc or their absence from television schedules they don’t make the list. Trying to narrow it down to an even dozen to begin with, then two dozen when that didn’t exactly work out, by the time I stopped there were 30 titles (or rather 31 for anyone who knows the movies), which means there are enough to happily keep me going for a month. In alphabetical order, they are:
These are the rules of the meme:
01. Provide a non-exhaustive list of films you’ll happily watch again and again.
02. There is no rule 02. (cute)
03. Reprint the rules.
04. Tag three others and ask them to do the same.
So the three lucky people charged with carrying this forward are Brian Sibley, David Weeks and Will Dixon. Enjoy!
