    I’ve been deciding if I want to buy certain films on blu-ray and DVD (e.g. Hannah & Her Sisters, Horrible Bosses, Black Swan, Kids Are Alright, Introducing Dorothy Dandrige, Ordinary People, etc.).

    Then I thought to myself…will I watch these films repeatedly.

    So it got me thinking about this forum. We all consume so many films on an annual basis.

    But which films do we like to watch over and over again?

    Black Swan may be one of the fifteen movies that I “like” on Facebook, but of those fifteen, it is undoubtedly the one that suffers most in subsequent viewings.  The Oscars may not have been that wrong to make it the only Best Picture nominee that year snubbed for screenplay and much of the magic for that particular film is lost when you know that the thrills and scares are coming; they are further lessened by playing on a small screen instead of a big one.  Having said that, I would rather own Black Swan than The Kids are All Right or Horrible Bosses and I have not seen the other three that you mentioned.

    Todd Field has only directed two films (In the Bedroom, Little Children) but he is one of my favorite working directors and I can watch both films over and over again. Each time they find new ways to touch me and sometimes even break my heart. It’s a shame that none of the actors from either of these films won Oscars.

    I can watch almost any Pixar movie over and over again and have a smile on my face each time.

    Most of the “smartly written but visually generic comedy-dramas” are movies I can repeatedly love and watch over and over again. These are movies like The Kids Are All Right, The Descendants, Midnight in Paris, Juno, Little Miss Sunshine, Sideways, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Fargo and even oldies like The Producers and The Graduate.

    Most Quentin Tarantino movies I never get tired of (except Reservoir Dogs, which although good, I don’t think I could get through again). Scorsese movies like Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The King of Comedy, Goodfellas, The Departed and Hugo are very-rewatchable.

    There’s also nothing like so classic Hitchcock. Psycho, North by Northwest, Vertigo and Rear Window are some of my favorites to watch on the personal DVD player during power outages.

    And then, the most rewatchable movie of all time: E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. The movie that got me into movies.

    I remember being home, sick from school, when I was about eight or nine and I watched Little Nicky in back-to-back viewings. I probably haven’t seen it since but I remember it as very watchable. Probably had the same experience with Legally Blonde and Bring It On.

    I have a lot. 

    Most played in general are probably ‘Mean Girls’ and ‘The Emperor’s New Groove’. I quote both movies more than anyone probably should, but I give no f*cks, I love ’em both and they just don’t get old for me. I also find myself watching ‘Easy A’ a lot these days, and I was stuck on ‘Superbad’ for a while too. 

    More recently, I watch ‘The Social Network’ an awful lot. Being completely serious, I probably watched it over 20 times within the first few months of purchasing the blu-ray. I love it, and I can watch it whenever and never be bored of it. It’s another film I also quote frequently (for instance- I cannot ask someone to refresh a web page without saying, “Mackey…refresh” and making JT’s hand gesture. Also, when someone repeats things to me, I find myself saying, “Wardo… I said I know”. I’m kind of surprised by how I’ve found ways to drop so much of this film’s dialogue into my own everyday life, lol).

    Of course, some of the classics any of us can watch over and over, but as for guilty pleasure-type things that make me put down the remote when I’m going through the channels… I always seem to stop on Heartbreakers or Soderbergh’s Ocean’s Eleven remake.
