I am a regular viewer of dvds-I watch around 1 film per night (sometimes more). Yet, there are films which are part of my 'collection' that I will watch repeatedly, over the course of time.

Some of these primarily for entertainment value, others like Japanese films because they have a particular resonance. How about you?

Those I watch for entertainment value are, in no particular order:

The Third Man

All The President's Men

Good Night and Good Luck

Batman Begins

His Girl Friday

Matador

Casablanca (and other Bogart films)

The Last Shot

The Big Lebowski

Fargo

12 Monkeys

Minority Report

The Girl With The Pearl Earring

Stranger Than Fiction

As far as vidieos go, I don't really watch them too often. When I do It's usually disney movies that feature dogs. I especially love Lady and the Tramp. It's the best love story of all time, so they say. For DVDs, my favorites are sky High, the Harry Potter series, and Clueless.

I like a lot of movies, I'm the type that just can't watch the same movie more than once, unless years have gone by or something. However, the one and only exception (well, I guess it is actually 6 exceptions) is the Star Wars saga. For some reason, I just never get sick of them. :Hail:

Mr. Holland's Opus
Dreamcatcher

Ooh, let's see:

* Shaun of the Dead
* Kill Bill 1 and 2
* Evil Dead (2 and 3 especially)
* Kung Fu Hustle

I own a bunch of genres movies and I like 'em all, but these movies listed are the ones that I get urges for ... a "Ya know what I'd really like to watch?" night.

TV ones that I watch over and over:
* Season One of the Muppet Show (only because they've dragged their asses releasing the others)
* Buffy (and Angel, and to a lesser extent, Firefly)
* A few others, but not obsessively: Deadwood, nBSG, the Office (both versions), House MD, Heroes (when it will be released).

But not to the same extent. I overdosed on Buffy, and I've never really viewed Angel more than twice. I will yearn occasionally to do a run through a series, if it's been a while.

The movies, though? I have never grown tired of them. SotD especially. It's wormed its way into a corner of my soul, and I find myself humming the song, quoting the actor's lines, and smiling at the memory of a scene with little provocation.

95% of the titles you all mentioned are already in my collection, and some that I don't own are enjoyed every time I see them on television. We all seem to have similar tastes - many titles show up over and over again. What a group!

Tron (really)
Romancing The Stone
Blazing Saddles

Unless I missed something (and I searched just to be sure), no one has mentioned, Blue Velvet. I used to get the biggest kick watching that film with people who have never seen it before. Their reactions ranged from head scratching to nausea.

I love that movie.
