Are there films you watch and look forward to watching even though you have seen them before?
Christmas certainly seems to be the time of year for nostalgia, open fires, favorite films etc.

Here’s some of mine.

The Quiet Man, The Searchers, Pulp Fiction, Kingdom of Heaven, The Last of the Mohicans, Trading Places,

What’s yours?

“Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf?” with Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor is my all-time favorite. Riveting performances.

In the comedy genre, if I stumble across the original “Vacation” with Chevy Chase, I just can’t look away. Hilarious!
