Repeat&Repeat

How many times do a movie help you to spend life? i bet there must be some of you guys been watching a same movie more than over 100 times. For me, beside of Stephen Chow 周星馳's movies, these are the top 3, Laputa, Fight Club & The Shawshank Redemption.

i think i watch Laputa every days during standard 4,5 & 6, i think even mostly everyday in Form 1, during Standard Four i had my class in afternoon, everyday before going to school, i would watch it. That time was watching with VHS videotape, using a videotape cover as pencil box was a trend in school. i bet some of you have no idea what the hell am i talking about. i did a little design on it, with my favourite sportsman Micheal Jordan's pictures cut from newspapers. you saw Micheal Jordan from the outside but Kyoko Fukada inside, muahahahaha! Let me tell you something about VHS videotape, there's a little hole at the bottom of it, in between 2 advance wheels, what's that? when your tape is too tight, until you can't play it, you gotto insert a Kilometrico Pen into the hole, and use a Ringgit Malaysia 10sen coin which exactly fit into the advance wheel of VHS videotape. now turn the coin clockwise, yeah! the tape is loose, now you can enjoy you video again!

ops...out of topic...so Laputa: Castle in the Sky, directed by Hayao Miyazaki(宮崎 駿) .i got this videotape from a friend of my father. won't get bored watching it, and it is still my favourite among Miyazaki's series.

and the 2nd movie i watched the most is Fight Club, sometime i wish Tyler comes to my life...
just watched it again last weekend, still fresh & Flash! made my day! "No guts. No glory." tagline of the movie, ha! the first 10 times, it surprised me, 10 surprises, each time i press the "play" button, surprises awaiting me... ARRGGHHHH! can't help to swallow a soap!!!
and this is a movie that can make you scare at beginning, sad in the middle and smile at the end.
my dad said this is the only movie without superpower/extraordinary people by Stephen King.
funny thing about this movie is, why the Chinese title of the movie is 《刺激1995》, i don't understand...

do share with me your 100times movie, maybe it will be mine too?
cheers!

對對對,除了周星馳的片子看了上百次之外,宮崎駿的也是從小到大重復又重復的看,從看錄影帶到看VCD然後DVD..現在還是會偶爾開來看,但每次看時還是感覺“剛剛才看過而已”,因為記憶太深刻了。而我看得最多的是「幽靈公主」,因為很喜歡樹林裡面的樹精靈,接下來就是「LAPUTA」了..

Fight club實在太屌了!我記得我看完後久久不能入睡,腦子一直在打轉。我也是超喜歡的,但沒你那麼嚴重,我重復看幾遍而已.. ﹣。﹣
