All of them. I only own five movies that I watch repeated views.

Shrek.

When this came out on DVD, we gave it to my son (then about 5ish) for a Halloween treat.

Twice every day.

EVERY DAY.

He watched it EVERY DAY.

NOT ONCE.

TWICE.

AND THREE TIMES ON WEEKENDS.

For three months. Then he cut back to about once a day.

I have seen that movie enough.

We figured that it was viewed over 500 times in my house.

Great movie, but brutal. Never need to see it again.

I think I'm the only person on the planet who didn't like that movie. It was nothing more than an After School Special with better cinematography to me.

Although, to be fair, "ass to ass!" ranks #2 on the all-time list of hilariously creepy movie lines to bring up in any situation. What's #1 you say?

Mine would be anything that is emotionally heart-wrenching and/or hard-to-watch emotionally.

Traffic
Pursuit of Happyness
Bridge to Terabithia
Beaches



The last 2 made me cry like a train wreck. Too harsh and painful. THe first two, hard to watch and your innards feel like they are been squeezed painfully and slowly.

All great films (although I don't remember Beaches too well at this point!)

The first one that comes to mind for me is Punch-Drunk Love. It was a very good movie, but left me feeling rather raw for a day or two. I'm a bit of a tenderheart, though.

That and 30 grams.


Both movies are just amazing but so heart crushing that it is hard to watch again.

I love Kurosawa. I own several of his movies.
I think I've only watched them once each. We've started to re-watch some, but never finish.

Particularly Kagemusha, Ran, and Red Beard. I love them all, they are just heart-wrenching. I think High and Low is the only one we made it through again.

And one I agree was good, but refuse to watch again is Joy Luck Club.

Children of Men was an incredible movie, one I would probably rate in my top ten of all time. That being said, the movie was so raw and emotional that it's highly unlikely that I could watch the whole thing a second time.

Schindler's List. Great movie, but long enough and sad enough that I have never had the desire to watch it again.

All of the films listed under by BGG interests made it there due to replayability.

Most of my favorites from my youth I could live without seeing again. Some haven't dated well, like Do the Right Thing.

No one film stands out as something that I liked but would actively avoid seeing a second time. If anything, maybe movies with "twists", because, y'know, what's the point*?

* Although that hasn't stopped me from watching Mulholland Dr multiple times.

Thanks. We have a spoiler tag for a reason, you know.

Don't tell me how Titanic ends.

Breaking the Waves and Synechdoche, New York. They're great movies, but they're just...grueling, I guess. I barely remember Breaking the Waves now, as I saw it back in 1996, but I remember thinking afterwards "That was amazing. I never want to see it again."

I'm going through this with my son and Mary Poppins right now. It's not that it's not a great movie, it's that I want to go through a day without "Spoonful of Sugar" or "Jolly Holiday" ringing through my head.


As for good movies I never feel the need to see again.

I can't think of a single film that I've enjoyed that I wouldn't want to see again.

However, there are plenty that I would like to have wiped from my memory, to really enjoy seeing them for the first time again. Top of the list: The Usual Suspects.

Braveheart's sled got disembowled, too? Now you've spoiled it! angry

Aw maaan! Now somebody's gonna post that crappy T-shirt.

It wasn't just his sledge, it was his childhood and being with his mother.

Without a doubt for me it has to be the Russian film "Come and See." My college history teacher recommended this film. After the film ended I was emotionally and physically drained. I felt like I had been through WWII. Very powerful, but very sad movie. imho, ymmv

I'm surprised to see a few of you mention Braveheart. That movie is on my Endlessly Rewatchable list.

Aye, that and Children of Men for me. I never felt as worn out as I did the first time I watched Children of Men. On subsequent viewings, I'm still awed by the brilliance of the film, but sans exhaustion.

If you guys don't watch it, I'm going to find a clip from the "spoiler episode" of "Cheers," and ruin five movies for everyone.

That said, I'll never watch "Leaving Las Vegas" again. I mean, how could you? God, it was excruciating.
