My brother is watching Tropic Thunder again, and he just watched it yesternight. He said that he really liked it. I don't like re-watching movies, feels like a waste of time. Do you repeat movies when you're bored?

If he's watching it in the theatre again then there may be arguments against that but other than that why NOT watch movies over and over again??? My gf and I have certain favourites that we have watched SEEEVERAL times again haha! We do it because we know exactly what the movie is going to make us feel like and the funny parts (if its good) just get funnier and funnier with the anticipation hhaha! Of course we leave pretty decent breaks in between ( couple weeks maybe?) but still...nooo problems at all with re-watching!

I guess I find it harder to laugh at something that I already found funny and has lost the element of surprise :P My boyfriend and I never watched the same movie together more than once, we'd rather find a new movie to watch :P

ahaha, well some of us can't afford a new movie EVERY time! and we've seen a LOT of movies hahaha! Ya, we do try to see new movies all the time but it gets expensive you watch like we do and plus sometimes the familiar is the comfortable/satisfying!

I used to. I remember watching Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on VCD so many times. I don't think it was really out of boredom, but because there was this song that I liked and I just kept repeating that part LOL. Same with "The Producers," I like watching the the singing parts, so I just fast forward. I never really re-watch it straight through. When a movie that I like comes out on TV, I would watch it, but I would flip channels on the parts that bore me. In the cinema though, I have a habit of watching movies that I like twice. Like with the LOTR Trilogy, I watched all 3 twice, and also Pirates of the Caribbean, and a lot of my other favorites. I think it helps me understand the movie better.

Hi oyenkai! I repeat movies especially if I really enjoyed them the first time. I watched the original Star Wars Trilogy a number of times and The Matrix a whole bunch of times as well. Sometimes, I repeat movies that I've seen before if they're showing on TV but I rarely do that since I rarely watch TV.

Hello oyenkai! I admit I do repeat watching my favorite movies. I remember watching "A walk to remember". I remember watching it when I was in highschool and now, I watch it again online and I appreciate more the movie than the first time I saw it.

not generally. it is one of my gripes I have at my husband, actually. He can watch the same thing over and over and fret if there is any distraction even though he knows it be rote.

After a year or so, I usually will if I liked the movie. My husband will watch the same movies several times a year, I don't know how he does, that and when I get stuck watching one of them with him I get kind of annoyed because I would rather watch something new that I have not seen. But I do have my favorites, and there are some I have seen several times, but usually a good amount of time will pass before viewing the same movie again.

yes, i`m watching movies again and again. I`ve seen Senseless 7 times! each time i laugh. It`s verry good! Or Me, Myself and Irene, it`s another wonderful comedy. But, recently, i`ve saw Mamma Mia it`s a musical. I haven`t saw a musical for 6-8 years ,so, i found this verry nice. I recommand it.

Usually i am not that repetitive in movies; but i do have a liking for watching particular sequences from a movie again, when i do get time once in a while. one of such movies is Godfather; based on a famous novel by Mario Puzo. I must have watched some of my favorite sequences in this movie more than 50 times.

Yeah I do usually watch movies more than once if they are one of my favourites. Watching them on consecutive days though - I probably wouldn't
