I was watching Goodfellas the other day and realized, that I have seen this movie at the very least, 50 times. I love it, it’s a classic! From the actors to the script to the director, there is not one thing that I don’t love about this movie. It’s one of those movies, I can watch over and over again and never get tired of it. I remember a time when I lived in my own place and didn’t have cable and a very limited movie supply, I watched Goodfellas everyday for a week straight. We all have movies like that, that in some way touch us or evoke some type of reaction, whether it makes us laugh, cry, root for the hero or in some cases, cheer for the bad guys. I have several and some are classics and some are, well to put it kindly, are probably not topping any AFI lists anytime soon. Some of my favorites that I can watch over and over again besides Goodfellas are The Princess Bride, BDS, Auntie Mame and Heavenly Creatures to name a few. So I’m just curious, what are some of your “Go to” movies, the movies you can watch repeatedly and still get excited to watch?
