It’s Friday night and as I wait for the chicken for dinner to finish its 30 minute marinade, I plugged in a movie.
It’s a movie I’ve seen a number of times and still find it as enjoyable, and funny as I did the first time.
Of course, I’m not telling you which one; we all have our secrets. Safe to say, it’s not a block buster.
Yet there are blockbusters that I watched once and that was enough (Avatar).
What do I think makes a movie re-watchable?
Though not the movie I’m watching, Tombstone is a movie I can watch over and over.
Historically accurate? Not exactly but… Plot- good guys and bad guys (always works). Characters: Doc Holiday and Wyatt Earp, I mean really. Dialogue- “I’m you’re Huckleberry.” “You tell them I’m coming and Hell’s coming with me!”
I know nothing of what it takes to make a movie, and obviously no one in Hollywood needs my advice but I’ll give it anyway.
Good movies don’t always have to wow the audience; they just have to be re-watchable.
“And that’s all I’ve got to say about that.”
