Is it normal to have favorite movies and watch them over and over?

Obligatory is it normal to be on a date, and put on a favorite movie that you’ve seen but she hasn’t?

I feel like most movies are trash and really only a select 5% or less are worth watching at all.

    I think what’s important here is to let go of film ageism. Try a cultural makeover where you go through the top films of a decade, starting from the 1920s forward. By the time you get to the 1960s the era will seem modern and you won’t have that same lens, plus there is a wealth of great films produced in the 20th century waiting to be discovered. Good luck friend

      Radio is theater, film is art and television is furniture.

      Sorry, I just remembered seeing that phrase on some graduate student's t-shirt when I was in college. It was a long time ago. 😔

    It's normal, and I don't know about watching movies on a date, what I do know is that I have favourite movies and I watch them over and over, together with popcorn.

    I watch my favourite movies over and over as well. But I also like to try new movies.

    I think it's normal. A lot of people do the same thing, and I think it's because it makes them feel good. My parents rewatch the same old shows and movies from their childhoods, I guess it makes them feel 'safe' or happy like they were as kids. I personally can't watch the same things twice because I just like to explore new things. But yeah I don't see anything wrong with repeating whatever you like

    I watch the same tv shows over and over. I've probably seen Breaking Bad and House MD at least a dozen times each.

    Movies? No. But I have TV shows.

    American Dad, The Golden Girls, Always Sunny, and Unsolved Mysteries, but only the version with Robert Stack.

    The entire Harry Potter series

    I watch those a lot with my cousin whenever I sometimes invite her over.

    ( We do watch other movies too, like Friday the 13th, Scream, Austin Powers you name it! :D )

    I am constantly rewatching King of the Hill, which I quote multiple times a day, I tell you what. Nowadays, I let it play in the background as I study or do other mundane chores.

    Looks like it's time for 'you know you're neurodivergent if...'.

    You're onto a winner if you put on a film that you have both watched over and over, and you both enjoy it again.

    Maybe not for a date. But I rewatch movies and shows all the time.
