Movies you can't help to see again and again.

We all have movies we particularly love.

Some of these movies are SO special we watch then over and over again.

I’d name “Pulp Fiction” and “The Departed”, the two movies I’v seen most.

I’ve seen Pulp Fiction 8 times.

I’ve seen the Departed around 10 times.

Which are movies you watch over and over again?

The Fifth Element and Fight Club. No matter how many times I see them, they just don’t get old.

I’ve seen The Breakfast Club well over 100 times.
Others I’ve watched often Shakespeare In Love,Amadeus,Catch Me If You Can and many,many musicals.

Aw, jeez, I’ve got tons!

Forrest Gump
Trading Places
Fried Green Tomatoes
Dirty Dancing

I’ve seen these in the last few days for the unpteenth time. I love movies I can quote!

The Princess Bride
Blazing Saddles
The Fifth Element
The incredibles

Lately, In Bruges,* Dark Knight*, and Iron Man. Old standbys are Meet Me in St. Louis, American Movie, American Psycho, Ruggles of Red Gap, Night of the Hunter, The Searchers, Rio Bravo . . . man, this list will just get longer and longer.

Until my early 20s, and going back as far as I can remember, whenever I liked a movie I would watch it over and over and over. I’ve seen the original Star Wars trilogy dozens of times each. Ditto:

The Villain (old Kirk Douglas comedy/western)
South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut
Cannibal! The Musical
The Matrix
The Princess Bride
Hot Shots!
The Nightmare Before Christmas
Ace Ventura 2: When Nature Calls (strangely, I didn’t really care for the first one)
Don’t be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood
The Stoned Age (I’ve seen this over 200 times. I think I could quote pretty much the entire movie)
Disney’s Robin Hood
Errol Flynn’s Robin Hood
Disney’s Alice in Wonderland
Office Space
The Phantom Tollbooth
Chasing Amy
Pulp Fiction
Y Tu Mama Tambien

That is by no means an exhaustive list. I could go on and on. Somehow I lost this magic. Even if I love a movie now I can rarely watch it again, and never more than twice anymore. Kind of wish I could.

Fight Club
Conan the Barbarian
Office Space
the first 4 James Bond movies

Good Will Hunting. About 20 - 25 times.

It’s not even that i set myself to watch it, or that I would even call it my all-time favorite. It sort of just happens.

Spies Like Us
Groundhog Day
Trading Places
Coming To America
The Godfather
The Godfather: Part II
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
The Silence of the Lambs
Leon: The Professional
Full Metal Jacket
Boogie Nights

Theres a lot more, but that’s all I can think of at the moment. I watch them probably 4-6 times per year.

Any time I run across any of the following on TV, I have to stop and watch all the way through:

The Princess Bride
Sleepless in Seattle
Forrest Gump
Father of the Bride
X-Files: Fight the Future

When I was in college, I would play the same three movies over and over on the TV, day and night: Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and Overboard. I loooove that scene on the boat with Sad Goldie in the Red Dress.

I’ve been watching Whit Stillman’s Metropolitan every Christmastime since about 1990.

Bad Santa. Twice a year, once in December and once in July-August.
Love it.

Night at The Roxbury
Dr. Detroit
Bruce Almighty
Legally Blonde

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (I practically have it memorized)
Jurassic Park
Harry Potter and the Sorceror’s Stone
The Manitou (obscure bad horror movie)

I don’t watch a lot of movies, but I’ve seen those at least 10 times each (many more for Willy Wonka)

I am always delighted to see, and will happily drop everything to watch again even if it’s already started, these:

Trading Places
The Incredibles
The Iron Giant
Toy Story
Toy Story 2
The Abyss
Breaker Morant
True Lies
Pirates of the Caribbean
Star Wars
The Big Lebowski
Animal House
Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan
Star Trek: First Contact
Pride & Prejudice
(2005 version)

…and probably a dozen more that I can’t remember off the top of my head.

Chasing Amy
Beauty and the Beast
The Goonies
What a Girl Wants
Coming to America
The Color Purple
Pretty Woman
Legally Blond
The Matrix Trilogy
The Big Chill
The Iron Giant
Real Genius
Men In Black
Monsters Inc.
Father Goose
True Lies
Sleepless in Seattle
Scarface (both versions) - this says more about the guys I date than anything else.

There are more, but I’ll stop now. I’m sleepy.

Bull Durham (yearly)
The Princess Bride
The Matrix series (so much beautiful Keanu)
I have only watched it twice now, but I have a feeling I’ll be watching “Brokeback Mountain” over and over and over (maybe hoping for it to turn out happy one of these days).
I don’t mean to watch “The Breakfast Club” over and over, but it hooks me every time I see it on tv (as does “Forrest Gump”).

For me, Fight Club WAS, but not anymore.

Dirty Dancing for sure, though. Jurassic Park, The Lost World, JP III–not great, but good fun.

Ghost World…these characters just really resonate with me.

Agree with Clueless, the Godfather, Scarface, Goodfellas. So far only saw In Bruges once, in theatres, but I feel like it’s the kind of movie you can see multiple times.

The Killing Fields
Fight Club
South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut
The Simpsons Movie
Wag the Dog

Oh, yeah, and ETA: Every damn Harry Potter, even the ones I don’t like.

The Big Lebowski
