The Big Lebowski

I don’t think I could ever tire of it, but I have no explanation why this is.

I love so many movies, but I’ve probably watched The Life Aquatic more than any other. It reminds me of my best friend and watching it with him in college. The cinematography is fantastic and it’s full of beautiful scenes and subtlety. It’s a character study and I feel like I notice new things about the characters each time. It has so much great music, and many memorable lines. And I quite fancy both Angelica Huston and Jeff Goldblum…

Sorry but I have more than one…

Pretty Woman
A Man and A Woman

The Great Escape.

@bookish1 – The Life Aquatic is a great movie! That and The Darjeeling Limited get very little respect, but they are amazing movies I could watch over and over.

avaeve's avatar

I second the The Big Lebowski.

mazingerz88's avatar

^^ Dude. I agree.

KNOWITALL's avatar

I’m going with Step-Brothers and The Other Guys, Conan The Barbarian, Sound of Music, the Brady Bunch movie, Star Trek and Next Gen movies. I love Lebowski, too.

If I come across The Shawshank Redemption or The Hunt For Red October I will stop and watch them. And Finding Nemo is the best movie ever. I could probably re-watch most Pixar movies.

I Know Where I’m Going. One of the most romantic films ever.

Also Between Two Worlds. Ditto.

So, so many, seriously, i’d be here all fucking day long & then some. If I love a movie i’m going to watch them over & over, a decent gap inbetween viewings is all that’s required.
Amazingly, no matter how many times you see a fave film, there’s always something you missed, however subtle, so it’s always a new experience.
I can’t answer without giving at least one example, so i’ve only one word to add, Tarantino!

zenvelo's avatar

Oh, I forgot because I haven’t seen them in a while:

Help and
A Hard Day’s Night

I could watch the movie “To Kill A Mockingbird” over and over again and not get tired of it. The acting was superb and the story was truly excellent. A classic for all time.

SamandMax's avatar

Tron – the very first one. Sure the second one looked great, but the first one because it blew my mind when I was a kid.

The Hunt For Red October

Labyrinth (David Bowie+animatronics+talking columns of rock and other weird puppetry= EPIC)

Beverly Hills Cop

The Man With One Red Shoe – or Big – or Vice Versa

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

The Great Escape

Kelly’s Heroes (simply because it was just that good)

The Eagle Has Landed

Sea Wolves

I got more. But they’ll do.

wundayatta's avatar

Not really. I don’t read books more than once and I don’t watch movies more than once. I also don’t make music more than once. You can’t step in the same river twice. Why would you even try?

marinelife's avatar

Bridget Jones’ Diary. I loved it. I saw it 3 times and could see it again many more.

Aster's avatar

Gone With the Wind
Castaway (Tom Hanks)
Driving Miss Daisy (Morgan Freeman) I continue to watch this over and over.

AshLeigh's avatar

Sweeney Todd.
Tank Girl.

Rat Race – so hilarious, it never gets old. I know all the words.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996) – yes, it’s a Disney film, but to be fair it’s a dark Disney film!
Oh and definitely Bean. Like Rat Race, it’s just too funny for words.
Definitely Misery. Even after seeing it practically a thousand times it still gets me on the edge of my seat!
And The Kid (1921) – perhaps my all-time favourite film. Simply adore it.

The Outlaw Josie Wales is still the best western ever made.

Aethelwine's avatar

Many. I think I’ve watched Anchorman at least ten times just this past year.

Some others….

Horrible Bosses
Lake Placid
Bad Teacher
Beerfest (@Blondesjon can’t believe you forgot this one)
Best in Show
Young Frankenstein

fundevogel's avatar

These feel like old friends:

Better Off Dead
Charlie Bartlett
Grosse Pointe Blank
The Breakfast Club
Tropic Thunder
Sleepy Hollow

I’d say Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, but I like to wait until I can’t properly remember it’s unwieldy plot so I can be smacked up side the head by it’s awesomeness.

glacial's avatar

@fundevogel Ok, now I have to.

Grosse Pointe Blank
High Fidelity
The Fifth Element
Joe vs. the Volcano
Crossing Delancy
Blade Runner
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Singin’ in the Rain
The Philadelphia Story

Heavens. There are too many. I could go on and on, but I’ll stop at ten.

Aethelwine's avatar

Now I want to watch Tropic Thunder :)

muppetish's avatar

Quite different, but Buster Keaton’s Sherlock Junior and The Sandlot.

Pulp Fiction
No Country For Old Men
Natural Born Killers

Julie Taymor’s Titus
Children of Men

hearkat's avatar

@wildpotato – I saw Children of Men in the theater and want to rewatch it, but it hasn’t been on Netflix. Thanks for reminding me to seek it out again.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@jonsblond Oh, I forgot Lake Placid. I love that one and never get tired of hearing Betty White call the cop “Officer Fuckmeat!”

fundevogel's avatar

@wildpotato I just watched American Psycho a couple days ago. I laughed so hard every time he said he needed to return some video tapes.

Xilas's avatar

“Man From Earth” is probably the most simple and thought provoking movie Ive ever seen.

VS's avatar

Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Meet the Fockers
And I love sleeping through The DaVinci Code—it’s not that it bores me, I just always fall asleep when I’m watching it!

Dutchess_III's avatar

Julie Taymor’s Tits??

sahID's avatar

Little Shop of Horrors
any of the Star Trek movies
The Lord of the Rings trilogy (watch it every Christmas evening, plus it provides me with my internet avatar (Lady Arwen))
The Phantom of the Opera (love love love that music, particularly the opening theme and “Music Of the Night”)
Les Miserables (2012) (follows the core plot of Victor Hugo’s immortal novel almost perfectly while brilliantly bringing Jean Valjean’s inner conflict to life (“who am I?”), plus Andrew Lloyd Weber’s soundtrack is a masterpiece)
*batteries not included (this time, the aliens are the good guys)
Airplane! (”. . . and please don’t call my Shirley.”)
