Right now, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse. Just finished my fourth/fifth watch 😅

Of all time? That's much harder for me to choose... Kung Fu Hustle is definitely very easy to rewatch. Highly recommend if you haven't watched it.

 

Same! I've seen Spider-verse thrice now since the first time a few weeks ago!

 

I still tear up at the final Peter Parker/ Miles Morales moment 😭

Of all the Spiderman movies, it's the most "mature". So little of that "golly gee I'm new" BS that plagues the other ones ...And they even make a running joke of the whole "how we got here" thing.

And that's without factoring in the absolute artistry of the animation.

 
 

Twice in the theatres, once, so far, since it came to NetFlix. Also bought it on BD, but have yet to crack the wrapper on it.

 

This movie is one of the few where if I scroll over it on Netflix, I will always watch the little clip of it that auto-plays. Love love love this movie!

 
 

Just rewatched Kung Fu Hustle! Shaolin Soccer is pretty good too

 
 

Heist movies are amazingly re-watchable. Ocean’s 11 all day.

 
 

Oh man that’s another one of my all time favorites. I will watch basically any Denzel movie without getting tired of them.

 
 

I actually think Fury Road (and Mad Max II) is a better heist/chase movie (though definitely less whimsical).

 
 

Respectful disagree. I’ve probably seen the remake at least 10 times, and I liked it quite a bit better. However, I will say that the car chase in the original is spectacular.

 
 

I think still has to be the original Blade Runner (Director's cut).

Every time I watch it I'm in awe at how it really makes you feel like it's a glimpse into a World rather than just a story that comes and goes.

 
 

Jurassic Park comes to mind for me. I swear it never gets old.

Iron Man, the first MCU movie, is also incredibly re-watchable. Especially after Endgame made so many callbacks to it towards the end.

 
 

Oh, Ben. I watched this movie on VHS every day after school for years, and two times or more on the weekend. The soundtrack was taken off Spotify, and on the way home from rehearsal this week, I discovered it's been put back up. I've been listening to it nonstop this week.

I don't rewatch it now as much, but I don't know when anything recent will surpass my childhood obsession with it.

 

I love Jurassic Park. I listen to the theme music on youtube when I work.

 

Ugh. I want to just go back now after Endgame and rewatch every MCU movie in chronological order. Problem is, I have so little time to do that and there are so many hahaha.

 
 

KungFu Hustle. No matter how many times I've watched it, it's always still funny. But only if you're into cheap slapstick jokes.

Also Christoper Nolan's Batman series. The dark heroic vibe of Batman and the enemies in those movies somehow just sticks, they don't go away after many viewings.

 
 
 
 

Lately, I'd have to say Thor Ragnarok (probably one of the best entrances ever of a super hero and just a hilarious and great action movie), The Lonely Island's Bash Brothers and Kung Fury.

 

Ragnarok is, perhaps, the best of the mainline Avengers movies. Really hoping Taika's second crack at Thor is even better.

 

Ragnarok is definitely the funniest movie in the MCU.

 
 
 

Either Scott Pilgrim vs the World or Hackers. Both are masterpieces.

 

Here's some trivia for you:

Scott Pilgrim is based on the Plumtree song entitled "Scott Pilgrim". Plumtree is an indie rock band from my hometown of Halifax, Nova Scotia.

And not just any indie rock band from Halifax, Nova Scotia, they were my sister's friends! My sister was even their "manager" or something. (Nothing official, just helped out early on, and I might be misremembering)

Anyway, I have never even seen the movie but I very much remember Plumtree as my sister's friends' band.

 

Whoa! That is super cool! You should check out the movie - it's really good!

 
 
 

"You've Got Mail"

It's not about romance, it's about communication. I watch it several times a year.

 

Kind of makes me want to re-watch it. Never would have occurred to me.

 

It's even better if you've read Pride and Prejudice (or watched the version with Colin Firth). There are a number of parallels.

 
 

Forest Gump. I have watched it so many times. One of the best movies I have ever seen.

 
 

Anything Tim Burton. My favorites:

  • Corpse Bride
  • Big Fish

Also, anything Christopher Nolan. My favorites here:

  • Inception
  • The Prestige
  • Batman Begins
 

I have loads:

Shawshank redemption
Forest Gump
Blues Brothers
Iron Man
Fifth Element
Goodfellas
Pulp fiction
Iron Giant
Akira
Despicable me
Toy Story 1,2,3 (4 is utter rubbish, don't watch it!)
The original 3 Star Wars
Star Trek 2: the wrath of khan
Star Trek: First contact
Big hero 6
Lego movie
Matilda

Not exhaustive but what I can think of off the top of my head

 

Currently rewatching The Hobbit right now. But hmmm... 🤔

As a kid, I watched Hook loads. Robin Williams is awesome and totally re-watchable.

In high school, I definitely used to watch Sleepy Hollow, the Tim Burton version, loads... had that one on DVD and it always stuck with me.

I don't replay movies as much now but was rewatching lots of Atlanta recently until the new Stranger Things season came out! And The Office is like comfort food for re-watching. I know it all so well, but it's still so great.

 

it's hard as I have a few that I can rewatch any time and still enjoying my time ... Depending on the mood: Matrix, Jurassic Park and Back To The Future 3 (yeah, I know it's not the most liked one in the trilogy).

 

Goonies.

100% every day could watch most, of not all of, the Goonies.

As a child who grew up in the 80s that movie is woven into the fabric of my upbringing.

(Fun fact: I've been to the Goonie house in Astoria OR 😁)

 

Jurassic Park and Twister are always in the lead for number of times watched, thanks to my obsession as a youngster, but more recently I've found myself re-watching:

  • Hacksaw Ridge
  • About Time
  • Forest Gump
  • 50 First Dates
  • Avatar
  • Shawshank Redemption
  • Flight of the Navigator
  • Once
  • Like Water for Chocolate
  • Ever After
  • Most of the MCU movies I'd rewatch, wit Ragnarok and Endgame at the top.

I don't watch movies like most people watch movies, and I'm sure many of you are the same. I'm in awe of the process and the details, from the most technical aspects to plain good acting, like Tom Hanks being able to pull off all that solo work in Castaway.

 
  • Princess Mononoke (probably watched over 20 times)
  • Cloud Atlas (the makeup work alwasy gets me)
  • Lord Of The Rings (do the marathon once every 2-3 months)
 

"just visiting" is fun. my wife and i like to watch that every now and then.

but every december, it's not Christmas without watching "elf". every year. :)

also, we watch all the harry potter movies at the end of the year, but since our son popped out, it's been difficult to get all the movies in over november/december.

 

Elf for christmas every year is tradition at our house too. And white Christmas.

 

Michael Bay's The rock, with Sir Sean Connery and Nicolas Cage.

I have never known why, but it's the kind of movie that helps me doing a mental reboot

Edit: I forgot to say Die Hard 1 and 2 (the others are awful).

 

Smetto Quando Voglio (I can quit whenever I want), an Italian movie trilogy about a group of researchers who reinvent themselves as drug dealers. The secondary title was "Meglio ricercati che ricercatori" that means "Better to be wanted (in a bounty sense) than researchers," but in English the world play is lost...

It was not born as a trilogy. The first movie is from 2014 and it was thought as a stand-alone movie. Then, because of the huge success, they shoot other two movies: "Masterclass" and "Ad Honorem"

imdb.com/title/tt3438354/?ref_=nv_...

Also Io c'è, another comedy Italian movie, this time about a bed-and-breakfast owner that invents a new religion for not paying taxes. Too late he will discover that he created a monster... Very funny and subtle too...

imdb.com/title/tt7648416/?ref_=fn_...

BTW, the main character in both movies is played by Edoardo Di Leo

 
 

Going to be one out of left field for most people here, but:

Hogfather

It's a movie based on the novel by the same name by the late British satire author Sir Terry Pratchett. I always liked the story to begin with, and I love how well it was made into a movie (much better than the other two books of his that were made into movies: 'Going Postal' and 'The Color of Magic').

Other's near the top of the list for me:

  • Pom Poko.
  • Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind.
  • BLAME!.
  • The Princess Bride.
  • The live action version of 'The Grinch'.
  • The Lord of the Rings (but not the Hobbit, I really didn't like it all that much as a movie).
 

I've watched Pacific Rim a buncha times. It's nice because it requires no emotional investment at all. Almost no romance, almost no drama, just big ol' giant robots fighting monster aliens in slow motion for two hours. You don't even have to watch the whole thing, just tune out whenever you've had enough.

 
 

If this is on, I can sit down and boom, it's the end of the movie before I even know it. Completely rewatchable at any time.
