Dear Everybuddy,

I was wondering if we could share some of those rare films we have no problem watching and being entertained by OVER and OVER again.  I will start: Neil Simon's MURDER BY DEATH!

This is a black comedy with an all-star cast that parodies the old detective movies and novels of past eras (e.g., Miss Marbles for Agatha Christie's Miss Marple, etc.).  

I own it on DVD and it is a TRUE pleasure each and EVERY time I sit down to watch it.  It is like a comfort food of movies.

Marc

As you're not giving us a specific limit as to how many movies to list, I'll keep mine at 5:

SILVERADO
QUIET MAN
BACK TO THE FUTURE
DIE HARD
MISTER ROBERTS

There are many, many more, but I'll watch those until the Blu-Ray/DVD wears out.

BLACK DYNAMITE!  (might be my most quotable movie besides Superfly!)  

Captain America: Winter Soldier

Captain America: Civil War

Pacific Rim

Just Friends 

Mo' Better Blues

Jaws

Animal House

Uptown Saturday Night ("Loose lips...sink ships!")

Grand Prix

Bullitt

Superfly (easily the movie I have seen the most from opening to closing credits at what must be well over 300 times.  My friends and I watched it almost daily in college and can quote most of it nearly verbatim).

It's a Mad, Mad, Mad World

Goldfinger

Thunderball

Dr. No

So many more.

Just watched this for the FIRST time a few months ago. Have watched it one more time. Look forward to future viewings. Funny stuff. And definitely plenty you can pick up on with multiple watches...
