over and over and over again
posted by soe 12:45 am

Blatantly stolen from Amanda and then modified to present fewer titles, my top 15 movies I can watch over and over again:

  1. The Thin Man (always on my iPod for emergency airplane viewing)
  2. The Princess Bride (my default sick day movie)
  3. White Christmas (probably my favorite Christmas movie)
  4. Benny and Joon
  5. The Breakfast Club
  6. The Muppet Movie
  7. The Wizard of Oz
  8. The Sound of Music
  9. Anne of Green Gables
  10. The Philadelphia Story
  11. Mary Poppins
  12. Pride and Prejudice
  13. Beauty and the Beast
  14. The Lord of the Rings trilogy
  15. The Harry Potter series (I know! I redid the rules and then totally cheated on them with these last two entries!)

What would be on your list?

Charade (Hepburn/Grant)
To Catch a Thief (Grant/Kelly)
The Wizard of Oz
Raiders of the Lost Ark

Guess I need to think of a few more!

A bunch of your movies would be on mine, too — White Christmas is my favorite Christmas movie, and I love The Thin Man! Also, The Breakfast Club, Philadelphia Story, and the Wizard of Oz. I’d add It Happened One Night, Lost in Translation, and, as a real change of pace, Animal House.

@amanda: I love Johnny Depp and Mary Stuart Masterson.

@janna: You’re right: It Happened One Night is also excellent.
