MOVIES YOU COULD WATCH OVER AND OVER AGAIN

There are some movies I just never tire of watching, no matter how many times I've seen them. Either they make me laugh, transport me to another place or time, or just plain make me feel good. Among them:

The Princess Bride
Harold and Maude
Spirited Away
Nightmare Before Christmas
The Life of Brian
Monty Python and the Holy Grail

What are some of yours?

Remember the Titans

While these aren't feel-good movies, they're the movies I tend to watch again and again (usually when I wake up early on a Saturday morning). Just their familiarity makes me feel good:

Barton Fink
Withnail and I
Single White Female
The Last Seduction
The Elephant Man
A Clockwork Orange
Glengarry Glen Ross
The Craft

I really like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, too, but only watch that now and again for some reason.

I think it's about the males really bonding and being so out there with their emotions for me. I will cry every time I watch Remember the Titans. Also that movie is about so much more than sports - Rudy also. Another good one is For Love of the Game with Kevin Costner.

Airplane!
Duck Soup (or A Day at the Races or A Night at the Opera or pretty much any classic line-up Marx Brothers movie)
Way Out West (I have a pic of Stan 'lighting his thumb' in my bathroom which I've kept for decades and my grandfather knew (slightly) Jimmy Finlayson. D'oh!)
Blade Runner.

Apparently I'm a Replicant with an anarchic sense of humour.
Figures.

Someone should do a quiz on the repeaters here....

Even if no one can be bothered perhaps we might get someone with more time than sense to summarize the responses?

Bill is busy adding to my sock collection.

I forgot to add The Natural with Robert Redford to my list. I can watch it a hundred times and I always get nervous, feel my heart swell, and choke up. To this day, I still hate Barbara Hershey.
