Quite a few! I do watch Libertine a bit, maybe 2-3 times a year, and Benny and Joon, and my kids long ago assured that I see all of the Pirates, Gilbert Grape and Edward Scissorhands repeatedly. I believe you can oversee a thing, so that you dull that initial wonderful experience. And that's what I don't want to affect, don't want to lose the sense of wonder, that stimulus to thought. I saw Public Enemies in the theater twice, bought it and waited a year to see it again. And after all that time: it was fabulous, one of his best characterizations. Which I didn't see in the theater, but only at home. I do think about them, replay scenes in my head or sometimes it's just a series of separate images. I read about his films alot too. Might be easier to understand all this GG if I explain that I don't own any movies except for his (not counting the kids' pile). The only form of media that I indulge in repeatedly and with absolutely no restraint is music. And then my kids often rebel as I can listen to a CD every day for months at a stretch. I get "No, no more Beefheart, please please Ma!" But music is different. Music is the environment you're in, what's surrounding you, what you walk through if you will.
You know, people are different. What works for one doesn't work for another. And that is cool, no?
Thanks for explaining, thats interesting I have lsot of films not all Johnny and tv series too but I have a real love of films as well as music and I have lots of the Stones DVD's too and I do watch them alot.
I know what you mean though about overseeing things. I have watched Johnny's movies so much I haven't done so for ages and I overdid Jump Street
