Certain movies are so comforting and familiar, watching them again is like curling up with your favorite childhood blanket. These are the films you’ve seen so many times, you can recite entire scenes from them off the top of your head. Often they’re the movies you loved as a kid, when you could watch the same Disney cartoon over and over without ever getting bored. Or they might be movies you discovered when you were a little bit older, movies that stuck with you forever because they were unlike anything you’d ever seen before. These are the movies you just never get sick of watching. These are the movies you know by heart.

Find out what movies Jeff and Mason know by heart.

Mason:  So Jeff, you’re kind of a movie guy, right?

Jeff:  I am, I am.

Mason:  So what are some of your…I’m a big movie guy, but I was gonna like have the top 5 discussion with you, you know?

Jeff:  Top 5?

Mason:  Yeah, like what are some of those movies you know by heart, ‘cause you’ve just watched them so many times?

Jeff:  Well, I have a lot of favorite movies that would make the top 5, possibly top 10, top 20. But there are a few that I do know by heart. Ghostbusters would be one. Both one and two.

Mason:  Yeah, sure.

Jeff:  I used to study to that in school. Donnie Darko is another one.

Mason:  That’s interesting. That one doesn’t get old? I mean that doesn’t seem like a movie with a lot of repeat viewing ability for me.

Jeff:  I don’t know. For some reason I think it does for me. I don’t know, what about yours?

Mason:  I don’t know, I think a lot of the movies I know by heart are kind of movies that I’ve had since childhood, you know, like the Disney movies like Little Mermaid or Aladdin. I mean I can pretty much recite that whole thing for you off the top of my head right now.

Jeff:  I think I know both of those because of my little sister.

Mason:  For sure. Yeah, that’s the thing, is also if you ever babysat or if you have siblings, then just that kid mentality where you can’t get sick of watching something. I had a family I was staying with in Spain once, and the kid just got Dumbo and literally we watched Dumbo like three times a day. So there was a chunk of time that I could recite most of Dumbo to you in Spanish.

Jeff loves movies. Some of the movies he knows by heart are Ghostbusters and Donnie Darko. Mason is surprised that Jeff has watched Donnie Darko so many times, because it is a dark, unusual movie. It isn’t the kind of movie Mason would want to watch over and over again.

But most of the movies Mason knows by heart are Disney cartoons he watched as a kid. For some reason, most kids love watching the same movies again and again. They don’t seem to get bored as easily as adults.

What movies do you know by heart? Is there a movie you can remember watching over and over again when you were a kid?

I recently watched a very inspiring movies named”three idiot”. it is india type movies. the story is discussed about the situation of india soceity are too pushed their youngman to study the Engineer science , coz they thought  graduateing from Engineer science means you could have better job, better life in the future. They forget to  look into each chid self-talent. this movie is taught us  learning everything from our true heart is best way for success.i think it’s a very educated , valed movies. recommend to my friend ~

No, not a single one. I doubt there are too many films worth watching once at least, not to speak of two or three times.

Lord of the rings: Fellowship of the ring. This movie changed my life! Best fantasy movie/book ever! It's a shame that Two Towers and Return of the King weren't so impressive…
