The other night my husband and I watched the movie, The Gladiator, for like the 1347th time. Seriously.
We got into a discussion about re-watching movies. He LOVES watching his favorite movies over and over again. Braveheart, John Wayne, The Sacketts, Lonesome Dove, and Wyatt Earp are just a few that he can quote line for line. It is definitely worth the money for me to buy him a dvd because he totally wears it out. He says he can rarely find anything worth watching on tv anymore and he loves, loves, loves having his "go-to television watching" right there at his disposal. You can imagine that he is a big fan of the dvr feature on our satellite system. Recently we upgraded our receiver to high def and after the technician left we realized that changing receivers meant that the HOURS of horse training programs he had recorded over the last couple of years was - poof - gone. Just like that.
I hate seeing a grown man cry. Just kidding. But there was a lot of whining around the house for a few days.
Anyway, I am not the type of person who loves re-watching something I have already seen. I rarely buy movies because they would just collect dust. Who has time to watch something already seen? I do have a couple of favorites like Father of the Bride. The Sound of Music, and Return to Me. And then of course there is the BSU/Oklamoma Fiesta Bowl game that I have watched several times - and even though we win it EVERY SINGLE TIME I never get tired of seeing that Statue of Liberty play!
So, anyway, it got me to wondering how many other people like to watch movies they have already seen. What about you? How about your husband?
It's riveting information I know.
