Why We Like To Watch The Same Movies Over And Over
I love watching Silence Of The Lamb with Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins. Watching that movie really makes me feel good I don't know why. The first time I watched the movie I became a big fan of Anthony Hopkins and bought his autograph.
For some odd unknown reason to me, the movie has a calming effect. Just maybe I like watching it because I know what is going to happen before it happens. Plus believe it or not, I actually pick up something new in the movie. I have by the way watched that movie about 10 times. One reason why I watch it is that I know how it is going to end. If you think you are alone and that you are the only one who loves watching the same movie over and over, you are not alone.
In fact, a study was done by Pamela Rutledge, a psychologist, and director of the Media Psychology Research Center, and she says it "reaffirms that there is order in the world". She says knowing how the film ends brings a calming effect. Here are some of your favorite movies.
