As you say, It depends on what interval is meant by 'over and over again'

but ones that get a run in the DVD player every few months depending on mood are

Monsters Inc
The Blues Brothers
True Grit
The Return of the King
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly (remastered)
Black Hawk Down
In The Heat of the Night
Duck Soup
and so on

But if I was forced to choose watch the same film every day, I would have to pick Blazing Saddles, still the funniest movie ever made.

Ah, I see the inevitable age differential raising its wrinkled head on its scrawny neck. I haven't seen most of those, except "In the Heat of the Night" which I am certain is being repeated sometime this week on one or other of the channels! That is one I will make an effort to re-watch.

Mostly, these (just off the top of my head):

Jaws (but only the first one)
The Magnificent Seven
Fiddler On The Roof
Cat People (both versions)

Little Big Man
Debbie Does Dallas

LOL.... Duff. never expected to get a post out of you on this.... Jk.. forget "Debbie does Dallas"....until you have seen my film ...LMAO.......

I did ask you to limit it to two....there are many films I love and it does depend on who I am with... for example if I am with the grandchildren...... Fern Gully has the prettiest early color graphics before computer animation.......

And..LOL... apparently if I am with Jk the choices is going to be different

But if I am just channel cruising and I come across..... Shawshank Redemption or Good Will Hunting.....I am going to watch..... I believe the acting in both movies is superb...... the story intrigues me each time I see it and brings to mind questions of what would I do in each situation......and its a great way to enjoy an afternoon....

thanks Duff

Julia, yes, I go along with your first three, never saw the others.

'JK', never seen either of them.

Renee, the name is David! And, alas, like 'JK's' films, I haven't seen either of them.

(Well, I never claimed to have a wide knowledge of films, did I?)

Any Hitchcock's with Cary Grant in it, starting with North by Northwest.

I haven't seen any Hitchcocks for a long time. Whilst I enjoyed then at the time I'm not sure I would cross the road to see one over again - although I do not deny their technical excellence.

Blame JK.... everyting is his fault..... he calls you Duff when talking to me..... so I think of you as Duff... but I promise to work on it DAVID!

HMMMM doesn't it say Duff and Nonsense........NOT David and nonsense.......LOL...... never mind.... when talking to JK..... I call you DUFF AND STUFF.... and for that one he always corrects me.

"What's in a name?"

My brain-fade suddenly lifted for a nano-second last night, enough for me to add "No Country for Old Men to my list.

I'll put in my twopennies' worth: right off the top of my head

Brief Encounter
The Third Man
Bout de Souffle
39 Steps (1935 version)
Belle de Jour (not only a great film but Deneuve in her prime)

Bloody hell, 'Bongers', you must be older than me!

Possibly but young at heart!!

High Noon (Fred Zimmerman)

The Duellists (Ridley Scott)

The Wild Bunch (Sam Peckinpah)

Dr Strangelove (Stanley Kubrick)

Richard M.

Hello, Richard, hope you're well. I didn't realise you hung around grubby little sites like this!

I'd certainly like to see the first two again.
