what's your favorite movie to watch on the weekend after a long week?

    This is an old movie but my absolute favorite, Seven brides for seven brothers. I also have a few John Wayne movies to go to if I want. The Cowboys or McLintock. Over the Thanksgiving holiday, I watched Gone with the wind.

    I saw that movie for the first time at a drive-in standing in the back of my Dad's old Ford pickup. It's been a favorite since then. It's the only movie John Wayne died in. I was told that John Wayne told Bruce Dern, after that scene that he just became the most hated man in America because he killed "The Duke".

      John Wayne's characters died in many of his movies:

    Central Airport
    The Deceiver
    The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
    The Sands of Iwo Jima
    The Fighting Seabees
    The Wake of the Red Witch
    Reap the Wild Wind
    The Alamo
    The Shootist

    Maybe what I learned or was told, it was the first movie that he was actually killed. In the others, like the shootist, it was known that he would die and you didn't actually see it.

      Incorrect.  Half of the movies I listed were filmed many years prior to "The Cowboys" being released, so it was not the first.

  • It generally depends on my mood and the week I have had.  My go-to movies are quite often  Mel Brooks, old Neil Simon, or Woody Allen films. I can't pick just one because it depends on too many things.   Sometimes a good Dirty Harry movie is just what I need, too.

    "The Last Crusade". I certainly don't watch it every weekend, but I watch it probably more than any other movie in my collection, about two or three times a year This post was edited by bigloseridiotman at December 8, 2018 1:56 PM MST

    The Omega Man
    That's been a long time favorite of mine. I always kinda had a crush on Charlton Heston.
