Movies + Comics, Again and Again

If you had to watch a movie in theater again, what movie would you watch?  I really enjoy seeing flicks in theater, but I've been much more frugal over the past couple of years.  I've already seen The Avengers in theater, but would love to see it again.  I have seen several movies over and over again in the theater, but they have to be great to see them multiple times.  I believe that The Avengers is one of those movies.  It's just so cleverly done.  Sometimes, you'll see a movie and there are lines meant to be funny or serious and it just feels forced.  That's not the case in this movie.  It's really cool to see a group of good actors come together for a comic book film, especially since comics were part of my earlier years.  Okay, I admit that I wouldn't mind getting back into them.  Comic books are so fun and can have fantastic stories, images, and color, which make them obvious for translating to film.

I've heard people contradict the believability of comic book movies.  I'll paraphrase what I've heard, "How can the Black Widow fight these monsters with just a gun?  She doesn't have any super powers."  That's what comic books are; they are the ultimate definition of imagination being brought to life.  And what else are movies for that matter.  Aliens break through a mystical wormhole and super heroes fight these aliens to save the planet, but a character's lack of super powers is what seems to be unbelievable?  Sometimes, that's what makes someone a super hero.  I'm also very curious and love to talk about movies.  What movie would you love to see again in the theater?  I would love to see The Avengers and would probably like to see that again over some other movies that I have yet to see.  On a side note, I'm surprised that they don't bring popular older movies back in theaters more often.  Pulp Fiction was brought back a short period after its initial release was over back in '94ish.  I am pretty sure that a lot of people would love to see that movie in theater again.

What other movies would be great to see again in theater?  How about The GodfatherThe Silence of the Lambs, The Hustler, The Goonies, Apollo 13, Hot Fuzz, Bad Boys, Forrest Gump, Iron Man, Die Hard, or The Shawshank Redemption?  These are just a few that I thought of, but who wouldn't want to see these movies in theater again?  Well, for right now, I'll settle for seeing The Avengers again while it's still in theaters now.  In the meantime, I think I might look through my collection of comic books.
