This is a truly great thread. It has potential to be turned into an awesome feature article, too.

 

It would also be cool to hear WHY these movies have such replay value. What makes you want to watch a film you know by heart again and again? Is the reason different with every film? 

 

I personally can understand the replay value in a good comedy, as something truly funny is funny no matter how many times you see it. But when it comes to action/adventure films, they don't have as much replay value to me. I'm curious as to what makes these films so appealing to you on a personal level.

 

Thoughts?

Deserving of a whole new thread...your idea, why not start one? I'd post in it.

The lists are wonderful. Makes a good shopping list. I recall ones with re-watch value are those that, when they show up on TV, make me want to sit right down and get into it; no matter where in the movie it was when I tuned in.

A Few Good Men
Nottinghill
Diner
Blazing Saddles
Joe Dirt
Shawshank Redemption
Hoosiers
Caddyshack

Ferris Buehler's Day Off probably the movie I've seen the most times. Seems like it happened to be on TV ALL the time and I always watched it, going back to when I was about 7
Braveheart is probably a close second, actually wore out the tape (or tapes actually)
Original Star War trilogy of course
Star Trek 2 and 4
Blazzing Saddles
Ghostbusters
maybe Stripes
Saving Private Ryan most likely, only movie I've seen 3 times in the theater
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, somehow I think I've seen it more times than the other Jones' movies

Zulu, somehow became a tradition to watch at Christmas every year since it came out on BD (not sure I've made it to 10 though)

I've seen Master & Commander in a few lists. I've only seen it 3 times. But, I've read through most of the 20.5 book long Aubrey-Maturin series 3 times, and some of them a 4th!
